It’s everything you love about Pat Sajak and Vanna White on “Wheel” with a splash of star power. It’s “Celebrity Wheel of Fortune,” and it’s back in its primetime slot for another installment of word puzzles, spinning wheels, and plenty of laughs. This time around, the contestants hail from major accomplishments on the silver and small screens, respectively.

Have you ever seen “Mean Girls”? Of course, you have. Even if you haven’t, there’s a good chance you’ll recognize Lacey Chabert when she takes the stage on the upcoming “Celebrity Wheel of Fortune.” Chabert played the infamous Gretchen Wieners in the fan-favorite Tina Fey classic “Mean Girls.” She tried to make “fetch” happen if that rings any bells.

However, as an actor, Chabert has led a prolific career for someone so young. She’s not even 40 and already has more than 150 acting credits to her name. We’ll see how she fares with Pat and Vanna come Sunday night.

Next up is Tituss Burgess. Fans of the Ellie Kemper-led “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” will instantly recognize Burgess as Titus Andromedon from the hit sitcom. He was a series regular, appearing in all 51 episodes of the show’s four-year run. Some may also recognize him as James Cleveland from the Jennifer Hudson-led 2021 movie “Respect”—an Aretha Franklin biopic. Tituss joins “Celebrity Wheel of Fortune” alongside Lacey Chabert and one other.

Who could that other contestant be? It’s none other than Melissa Joan Hart. That’s right. It’s “Sabrina the Teenage Witch” herself. The iconic sitcom actor got her big break as Clarissa Darling in the early 1990s on “Clarissa Explains it All.” For the past 20 years, she has been working consistently in television. Her most recognizable recent role is likely her 100-plus episode stint as Melanie on “Melissa and Joey.”

‘Celebrity Wheel of Fortune’ Host Vanna White Opened Up About Her Favorite Celebrity Performance

It’s hard to believe, but we’re already on Season 2 of “Celebrity Wheel of Fortune.” Time has been flying. When Season 1 kicked off in January, longtime “Wheel” icon Vanna White sat down to speak with Yahoo! Entertainment.

She was surprised by how much fun everyone was having. The celebrities were grateful for the opportunity to raise money for charity.

“In a fun way, they were joking. Like, ‘I wanted to be the big winner!’ Lots of money won for their favorite charities. It’s great all around,” said White.

Of course, the outlet pressed Vanna to find out who turned in her favorite celebrity performance. It turns out he was her favorite off of his celebrity alone.

“That’s a tough question because they were all so good and they all brought something different to the table. Maybe, I have to say, Chris Harrison was a favorite for me only because I’m a fan of “The Bachelor” and “Bachelorette.” What can I say?” she continued.
