Good fun to watch

I watched the premier of the show and I will tell you that It is truly a fun show for all you can see how much celebritys know about themselves and others lol watch it as a family and it's even better than if you watch alone try it

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (1 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

This fun competition, which is based on a segment on Jimmy Kimmel Live, is a combination of trivia and lighthearted chat as fans show off and meet their favorite A-list celebs. It's especially funny when the star in question doesn't remember the facts about her or his own life as well as their superfans.

Despite some cringeworthy moments thanks to some over-the-top contestant reactions when talking about their favorite stars, Big Fan is all in good fun. No doubt that folks who like entertainment and sports celebs will find it worth watching.
