ABC has announced that The $100,000 Pyramid will be back this summer as part of the network's Sunday Fun & Games, for the show's third season. The game show features two half-hour-long episodes airing back to back where everyday people team up with various celebrities hoping to read their minds in order to win big prizes and advance to the Winner's Circle in hopes of winning $100,000, potentially given out each week. Last year, the show was sandwiched between Celebrity Family Feud and Match Game, but ABC hasn't announced its full line up just yet.
The game show first appeared on network television on CBS on March 26, 1973, as a weekday morning show. At the time, the prize money was just $10,000 and the show was hosted by Dick Clark. Since then, Pyramid has been been revived numerous times and most recently with Michael Strahan serving as host. But the main concept of the show has remained the same. It's a timeless word-association game in which two stars team up with contestants fighting against the clock.
Season 3 of $100,000 Pyramid is currently filming, but the show is still taking applications for contestants so if you ever dreamed of appearing on a game show, now is your chance. The only real requirements are that you must be 21-years-old or older, are a legal U.S. resident, have never been convicted of a felony plus a few more.
This summer's celebrity guest lineup includes comedians, sitcom stars, Olympic medalists, dancers, movie stars, morning news show personalities, and more. Here is this summer's complete list:
