Wanna Bet?
Wanna Bet?
Wanna Bet? is an hour-long weekly game show on ABC which features celebrities as they wager on ordinary people doing physically and mentally challenging stunts. Celebrities will compete with each other to take home big money that will be donated to the charity of their choice.
The mechanics of the game is simple. Four celebrities judge whether ordinary Americans – housewives, truck drivers, dentist, etc – will succeed or fail in performing the wildest stunts, tricks and mental challenges that they can come up with and perform in front of the studio. Some of the stunts included in the show are skiing over 2000 fresh eggs without breaking them, solving a Rubik's Cube blindfolded and submerged under water in under 20 seconds, memorizing 32 audience members' first and last names in under 60 seconds, and a 20-piece marching band piling into a small van while playing When the Saints Go Marching In.

Wanna Bet? is hosted by UK PokerFace hosts, Ant and Dec. Some of the celebrities participating on the show are Sherri Shepherd (ABC's The View), Tom Bergeron (ABC's Dancing with the Stars, America's Funniest Home Videos), Scott Hamilton, Bill Engvall, Jerry Rice, Drew Lachey (winner of ABC's Dancing with the Stars) and Corbin Bernson.

Wanna Bet? premieres on July 21, Monday 9pm ET on the ABC Television Network. The show’s executive producers are Phil Gurin (The Singing Bee, Weakest Link) and Mark Jansen (The Weakest Link and Lingo).
