Glad to see Kathy and Yvette coming back. I don't remember, did Dr. Ken do well last season? Either way, I was hoping to see more names from last season return.

I know Tisha Campbell beat him in one match, and won 50K with her partner. However, I wanna say he won the other match.

Some really solid names this season, and I like the common matchups like cast members or football players. Nice way to get a little "sibling rivalry" going. :)

/Dr. Oz vs. Daphne Oz from The Chew would've been a nice touch...

That's all for me. I'm sure I'll watch all the others, but this will be the biggie for me (for obvious reasons!)
Baby, we ain't the first....

When I saw the headline on the big board I thought someone was just going to rehash the guests on Dick Clark's second 100K season. Glad to see it was better than that.

Looking forward to the 'This Is Us' pair-up

Who's Von Miller? I'd argue that even with an opponent, that's one celebrity and Von Miller.

Von Miller was the MVP of Super Bowl 50, and recently was mentioned in the Tom Brady uniform theft, because Miller's helmet was stolen by the same guy. But, you are right, he is not a household name.

If I were to make a guess, the idea was to have Miller and Cam Newton play against each other, as a rematch of Super Bowl 50. By having a Giants (former Jets) player in there, it looks like he was the backup guest for a football themed show, and presumably local.

The audience ticket site is listing some of the guests, but it doesn't solve the discrepancy.

Von's had a few commercial deals too, mainly Old Spice. I think he also had a cameo on SNL after winning the Super Bowl.

I know that ABC wants big names and all in order to get that youth demo, but I do wonder how these guys will be at actually playing the game. I'm only gonna be so psyched about the most popular athletes playing to a 15-12 game of Pyramid. Poor players, no matter how popular, make for bad television.

/There are more parallels between Pyramid and football than I expected

I say the same thing about Eric Decker. ;)

Dr. Ken won $100K for his partner, so yes, he did well. I believe they also have an unaired show with Rosie O'Donnell and Kathy Najimy from last season. BTW, has anyone tried getting tickets? I got notices saying they were all gone for the shows I picked.

I wonder if RuPaul will "dress up" for the occasion.

It was actually with Peri Gilpin and Ice-T. I'm not sure if the 2nd Rosie/Kathy show intentionally took that slot or if they had already planned to let that episode go unaired.

The 2nd Rosie/Kathy show was completely unplanned and done because the gameplay between the two was so good. So, I'm sure that, up to that point, they probably did plan on airing Peri Gilpin/Ice-T. Hopefully, it gets tacked on to this season.

I got a ticket for Monday at 12 noon. Celebs will be Apolo Ohno, Eric Decker, Rachel Ray and Curtis Stone. So I'm seeing athletes and chefs facing off, so to speak.
