We’re truly living in the golden age of game show reboots. There’s the new Press Your Luck, The Celebrity Dating Game, Card Sharks, Name That Tune … we could go on, but you get the idea. If you’re just not feeling up for the hard-hitting drama or twisty-turny plot of a primetime TV show, game shows are absolutely perfect. There may be a bit of drama every once in a while, but the stakes are usually very low and everything is sure to be wrapped up by the end of the episode. What a relief!
One of our current fave game shows these days is the return of The $100,000 Pyramid, which is currently airing Wednesday nights at 9 p.m. on ABC. And, just as with the original show, the best part of Pyramid is easily all of the celebrity guests. Here’s a look at which celebrities you can see compete with their non-celeb counterparts this season!
Here’s a look at the celebrity guests on ‘$100,000 Pyramid’:
As anyone who grew up watching the original Pyramid knows, the game features two teams of two people: a celebrity and a non-celebrity. In each round, one person on the team gives the other person clues in order to get them to guess a word within a given category. Here are all of the celebs who will be featured on the latest season of $100,000 Pyramid:
Rosie O’Donnell vs. Nate Berkus
Michael Kosta vs. Roy Wood Jr.
Each episode of the show features celebrities (two compete with their non-celeb teammates in the first half, and the other two compete in the second half). The second pair of celebrities competing in Episode 1 are comedians Michael Kosta and Roy Wood Jr.
Rachel Dratch vs. Chris Redd
Comedian Rachel Dratch appears in Episode 2 in competition with fellow comic Chris Redd.
Dr. Oz vs. Daphne Oz
Yes, they’re related! Dr. Oz is a television personality/cardiothoracic surgeon (who has been doing the game show rounds this year — you may have also seen him host Jeopardy!. Daphne Oz is his oldest daughter and a nutrition author as well a former host of The Chew.

Kal Penn vs. Kathy Najimy
Both Kal Penn and Kathy Najimy will get another chance to compete on the show for Episode 12. Who will have a better round two?
Neil deGrasse Tyson vs. Gilbert Gottfried
Here’s another pairing we think will be super fun to watch: astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson vs. Gilbert Gottfried. We honestly don’t know who to root for on this one.
