'Who Wants to Be a Millionaire': Tiffany Haddish to Rebel Wilson, here are the celebs who'll play for charity
(Oct 19, 5:30am)'WWTBAM' is returning for yet another pandemic special celebrity season, and here are all the big names from Hollywood who will play the game to raise money for various charity organizations
'Who Wants to Be a Millionaire' is making a comeback. ABC's Sunday night game show is about to premiere yet another season with a slew of celebrities that will be playing the game for their choice of charity organizations. Earlier this year, in April, in the thick of the Covid-19 pandemic, the show came back on air to celebrate the completion of 20 glorious years of being on the air. There were a lot of changes that were made, first being the interactive studio audience that is a very integral element of the show was missing due to Covid-19 regulations that restricted a large gathering in one place. Secondly, the lifelines were tweaked as well. For instance, Ask the Audience was replaced with Ask the host (Jimmy Kimmel). The celebrities were also allowed to bring another person with them as an advisor who would sit right behind them to help them with the answers in case they were stuck. 'Modern Family' star Eric Stonestreet appeared on the very first episode of the season and a few of the other celebrities that also played the game were: Jane Fonda, Anderson Cooper, Andy Cohen, Dr Phil, Catherine O'Hara, Will Forte, Nikki Glaser, Hannibal Buress, and Lauren Lapkus.
However, a lot of questions were raised among 'WWTBAM' fans about celebrity contestants, with a lot of them saying that they didn't quite enjoy watching the rich and famous occupy the hot seat and they'd prefer to see the show with regular participants. However, another star-studded season is about to go on the air, and participating celebrities include 'The Carmichael Show' star Tiffany Haddish, Julie Bowen from 'Modern Family, 'Pitch Perfect' star Rebel Wilson, and popular stand-up comedian Ray Romano. All of them will try to answer trivia questions in a bid to win $1 million dollars. So far none of the celebrities have been able to win the big prize so it'd be interesting to see if any of the stars this season will be able to answer all 15 questions correctly to win the big prize.
'Who Wants to Be a Millionaire' airs Sundays at 9 pm ET only on ABC.
