Logo’s ‘Gay for Play Game Show Starring RuPaul’ Has People Going Buck Wild For Trivia
Logo’s new offering, Gay For Play Game Show Starring RuPaul, is not only an incredibly long name —Twitter’s only 140 characters folks!—but it is also TV’s most faaaahbulous new game show. In this 30 minute, over-the-top trivia contest, a panel of six celebs help two contestants answer pop culture questions to win cash and prizes.
The fun is shot in front of a raucous studio audience, and features a bevy of shirtless male models. The contestants’ entertainment IQs are put to the test when Ru challenges their knowledge of flaming-hot pop culture. The contestants must decide whether to trust their instincts or to turn to the “Gay for Play” celebrity panel for help. Then as the competition heats up, contestants pair up with one celebrity panelist and have 69 seconds to answer as many trivia questions as possible for a chance to win big cash and prizes.
Also this season, celebrity contestants will compete for ultimate bragging rights. Rebecca Romijn will battle husband Jerry O’Connell; former Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills cast member Taylor Armstrong will duke it out with Real Housewives of Orange County cast member Gretchen Rossi; and it’s a 227 reunion when Marla Gibbs and Jackée Harry face off!
OMG—It’s like an entire game show filled with Paul Lynde’s legendary snark! The show’s panel will be filled with flamboyant raconteurs including regulars Michelle Visage, Todrick Hall, Carson Kressley and Ross Mathews; and rotating panelists including model Amber Rose, Brandi Glanville (Real Housewives of Beverly Hills), Cheyenne Jackson (American Horror Story), Daniel Franzese (Looking, Mean Girls), Frankie Grande (Big Brother), comedian Heather McDonald, Jeannie Mai (The Real), Kristen Johnston (The Exes), Mindy Cohn (Facts of Life) and former RuPaul’s Drag Race contestants.
I have two things to say about this show. First, why is Titus Burgess not listed as a panelist? He was born for this show! Second, I would dominate this game. Bitchy pop culture trivia? — This is my world.
