Let’s rewind back to 1961 for a moment, shall we? Password is a game show that was originally created by a man named Bob Stewart. It aired on CBS before eventually moving over to ABC. Allen Ludden was the first-ever host of the show. Now, in 2022, there’s a new host for the most recent iteration of the show.
Password lets contestants participate against each other in two separate teams. Each team is made up of a celebrity who gets paired with a regular individual. The common goal is to figure out mystery words in an attempt to take home massive cash prizes.
Here’s what fans should know about the new host of Password.
