I’m pretty sure that no matter what you read today there will be no more a golden headline than “Snoop Dogg is becoming a game show host.” If you want to talk diverse careers look no further than Snoop Dogg. Once the most gangster of gangster rappers the guy is now cooking with Martha Stewart on television and next up is a hosting gig reviving the once popular 70s game show “The Jokers Wild.”
Snoop Dogg will executive produce with Michael Strahan, the “Good Morning America” anchor who also hosts a revived “The $100,000 Pyramid” for ABC. “Jokers Wild,” like “Pyramid,” comes from Sony Pictures Television. According to Indie Wire
“I’m a huge fan of game shows and The Joker’s Wild was my favorite show growing up,” Snoop Dogg said in TBS’s press release. “It always matched the flavor and personality of Snoop Dogg! Me and the Snoopadelic team are excited to bring back the show and put my own personal touch on it. Get ready ya’ll, it’s gonna be a wild ride!”
According to TBS, the updated take on the classic game show “will go beyond the traditional trivia slot machine as the set’s only backdrop, and set Snoop’s Joker’s Wild in his very own casino. While the gigantic slot machine remains a major feature, entertaining mini-games replace the straight trivia questions. Giant dice, playing cards, streetwise questions and problem solving, not just book smarts, rule the floor with all the action is controlled by the one and only Snoop D-O Double G.”
I cannot possibly imagine how amazing this is going to be. There’s zero chance that Snoop doesn’t come out blazing at least 50% of the time. Can you even imagine the commentary this guy is going to bring? It’s practically impossible not to love Snoop Dogg. I cannot wait to see this show.
