WHEEL of Fortune has revealed a preview for the celebrity spin-off’s Christmas episode which will feature a famous A-list actor.
Celebrity Wheel of Fortune hosts Pat Sajak, 76, and Vanna White, 65, invite celebrities to spin the wheel and solve word puzzles for a chance to raise money for charity.
A press release from ABC revealed that contestants for the upcoming Dec. 6 episode of the Celebrity Wheel of Fortune will include Sasheer Zamata, 36, Kal Penn, 45, and Jack Black, 53.
Saturday Night Live alum Sasheer Zamata will perform on behalf of SELAH, actor Jack Black will perform for the 24th Street Theater and former White House staffer Kal Penn will represent the Myrtle Avenue revitalization project on the “star-studded tour of America’s game”.
Many fans will be thrilled to see Jack Black, who burst onto the Hollywood scene in the romantic comedy High Fidelity in 2000 and starred in hit movies Nacho Libre and Jumanji, bring his patent high energy to the game show.
Recently, 50-year-old Snoop Dogg shocked fans with his wild answers during the third season premiere of Celebrity Wheel of Fortune.
Viewers have begged the 50-year-old rapper to be on the game show “every night” after he couldn’t stop laughing at his “hilarious” mistakes.
Throughout the episode, Snoop had his fellow contestants, as well as fans back home, cracking up on his gameplay.
The rapper had quite a few incorrect answers, but it was how far he was from those answers that sent everyone to the brink.
For a puzzle, he guessed “Bake onions” instead of the correct answer “Bake brownies.”

He looked pained by his failure to get this one, in particular, right, with fellow contestant Amanda Seales even telling the rapper, “You should know that! That’s all your bag!’
While another contestant, Mark Duplass, joked: “Martha [Stewart] will be disappointed. Martha will be shocked!
Some of Snoop’s other incorrect solutions included “Toilet Atlas”, “Swallow the Step”, and “Airport Professor”.
Each had Celeb Wheel of Fortune viewers and the stars alike cracking up on their nonsense.
One fan joked, “@celebritywof BAKING ONIONS will be on both the highlight and blooper reel for a long time.”
Another wrote: “Snoop’s #CelebrityWheelofFortune guesses were seriously next level hilarious.”
A third guessed: “I’m pretty sure the record is broken for the most incorrect attempts at solving in a single episode of Wheel. #CelebrityWheelOfFortune”
“I haven’t laughed this hard in so long, snoop did this whole show tonight and his responses were hilarious, put it back on,” shared a fourth.
One called it “one of the MOST FUNNIEST episodes of #CelebrityWheelOfFortune EVER”.
The celebrity-based version of the game show featured a bizarre NSFW puzzle earlier this month that mixed a wholesome TV show with a raunchy one.
Fans were in disbelief when Pat asked the three A-listers to awkwardly resolve a suggestive sentence.
At Sunday’s famous Wheel of Fortune, Michael Rappaport took on Jaime Camil and June Diane Raphael.
The “before and after” puzzle looked for “Gilmore Girls Gone Wild”.
All three contestants looked stunned when asked to solve it.
The phrase seemed to combine the beloved TV series Gilmore Girls, which aired on the WB, and Girls Gone Wild – an adult series.
One amazed fan wrote: “Watch Celebrity Wheel of Fortune. The answer to a before/after puzzle was Gilmore Girls Gone Wild.”
“The Gilmore girls have gone crazy?” another wrote with three crying laughing emojis.
“No. For the love of TV and game shows, no,” wrote a third.
“Can’t ignore this now,” wrote a fourth.
Even the official Wheel of Fortune Twitter account chimed in and wrote: “Hey, I’m just running social media” with a shrug emoji.
TAKE THE ROAD
The Wheel of Fortune executive producer has shared the show’s 40th anniversary plans to take the famous pun on the road.
Bellamie Blackstone gushed about all the exciting episodes planned for the rest of the landmark season.
Sitting down for a backstage interview, Bellamie shared that she was thrilled to have Sweetheart Week returning to Wheel of Fortune.
This will be the first time couples have starred on the show together since the pandemic.
Teen Week is also lined up where high schoolers and tweens will try to spin the wheel.
College week will take place during spring break, and Bellamie urges keen-minded students for puns to consider applying to appear on the show.
A Secret Santa game is also planned for a holiday special.
Bellamie then revealed the biggest change coming to the show in its XL season as it prepares to hit the road – but did not reveal where the secret location will be.
