On the upcoming episode of Celebrity Wheel of Fortune, the popular game show will feature a Boy Band showdown between their three celebrity contestants.
Each Sunday night, the celebrity version of Wheel of Fortune airs on ABC in primetime. Celebrities from all over the entertainment and sports world have competed in the second season of the game show, which returned in September. The show’s social media team posted a sneak peek of this week’s episode on Twitter. In addition, host Pat Sajak’s daughter, Maggie, retweeted their post and shared her excitement for the upcoming guests.
For the first time on Celebrity Wheel of Fortune, former Boy Band members are coming together to compete for charity. NSYNC’s very own Joey Fatone is making an appearance. And so are two members of Boyz II Men – singers Shawn Stockman and Wanya Morris. In the promo clip for the new episode, the show shared a snippet of the celebrity contestants’ interactions with Sajak.
“I’m trying to be like you, Pat. That’s what I’m trying to do,” Fatone jokes with the host in the clip.
In another fun segment, Sajak tests Morris to see if he can remember how many Grammy Awards Boyz II Men won over the years. Morris correctly said that the R&B group has won four Grammys, to which Sajak responded, “Just checking.”
Finally, the game show put together an amusing collection of Stockman buying vowels every chance he could. On at least four occasions, Stockman opts to buy a vowel, and Sajak caught up to his strategy.
“If I know you, you’re gonna buy a vowel,” Pat Sajak hilariously said to Stockman.
“You know me,” Stockman said as everyone shared a laugh.
Make sure to tune into Celebrity Wheel of Fortune this Sunday night at 8/7c on ABC.
‘Wheel of Fortune’ Host Pat Sajak Reveals Why Celebrity Version of Show Was Years In the Making
In early 2021, Wheel of Fortune welcomed celebrities to the game show to spin the wheel for the first time ever. As mentioned, in September, the spinoff series came back for its second season. While numerous game shows have invited celebrities to compete before, Wheel of Fortune has never jumped on that bandwagon until this year.
During an Entertainment Weekly interview, host Pat Sajak spoke about why it took so long to include celebrities on their game show.
“Part of it is, we’ve always been careful about not getting the show overexposed,” Sajak said to Entertainment Weekly. “We’ve been on a very long time, and I don’t know how much Wheel is too much. But you don’t want to water the product down too much. And this seemed like the time to do it because of what’s going on in the world.”
