Sunday, December 13, night's episode of 'Who Wants To Be A Millionaire' saw three contestants make an appearance. It began with registered nurse Amanda Sheehan continuing to play the game from last week. She left the show with $32K. She was playing the game to raise money to fuel her and her boyfriend Nathan's dream of building a pug ranch — she aimed to win big bucks but a question about 'Toy Story 4' that she got wrong sealed her end in the game.

Coming in fast on her heels was a celebrity who hosted the daytime version of 'WWTBAM' after Regis Philbin quit and before Jimmy Kimmel began hosting. Cedric the Entertainer was in to play the game for Kyles Family Foundation, his family's charity organization wherein they contribute to women's health since 1994. He brought his sister Sharita Kyles Wilson, a professor of public speaking and interpersonal communications to help him win big bucks in the game.

Unfortunately Cedric's claim of being "chock full o' knowledge" didn't turn out to be true and he made an early exit from the game after failing to answer, "Despite being the most popular dog in the US for decades what breed has never won best in show at the Westminster dog show?" The answer to the same was golden retrievers. 

Next up in the game was Australian actress Rebel Wilson who came in to raise funds for The School of St Jude in Tanzania. Rebel confessed to never having been on a game show ever before. She brought along her friend Jacob Andreou to help her in the game. She met Andreou at a fancy place in Aspen where they became fast friends. She zipped past a couple of initial questions when the times up alarm sounded off. 

For audiences expecting to see her next on the show, here's news for you, in case you missed it. Before the show came back on after its final commercial break, an informational teaser played on the screen saying that "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire is new on January 3". The show is going on a holiday break and will only return in the new year. Sunday, January 3, 2021, is when it'll return and you can expect to see Rebel advance in the game when it does. 

'Who Wants To Be A Millionaire' airs on Sunday nights at 10 pm ET on ABC.
