You heard right! The beloved game show, ‘Who Wants to be a Millionaire‘ originally hosted by Regis Philbin is back for a special collection of shows for its 20th anniversary.
Late-night host, Jimmy Kimmel will be taking Regis’s seat for the special run of episodes. The premiere show will kick off on Wednesday, April 8th with two celebrity guests.
Who? Get ready to see Eric Stonestreet from Modern Family and Will Forte from SNL fame take the hot seat. Both contestants will be playing for a charity of their choice.
Eric Stonestreet chose Building Hope for Autism and Will Forte is playing for The Pangea Network.
In a new twist, celebrity contestants can acquire some extra help. They can invite a guest to help answer their questions, whether its a relative, friend, or beloved teacher.
A new lifeline was also added! Remember the original, you got to phone a friend, ask the audience or do 50/50? Well now they have included asking the host – get ready for those tough ones Jimmy!
If you love game shows like us, you can play along on the app which allows you to compete to win the same amount of money celebs are playing for! So play along here!
Eric takes the hot seat on Millionaire – watch!
