A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
It’s a game show, but it’s being played for charity. As a result, no celebrity leaves with less than $30K for their chosen charity.
Positive Role Models
The hosts are White, but there are some Black and ethnically diverse contestants who play the game. Some contestants are members of the LGBTQ+ community. Pat Sajak refers to both men and women as "guys" sometimes.
Violence & Scariness
Some contestants are loud and yell, but it’s all in good fun.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Celebrity Wheel Of Fortune is a Wheel Of Fortune spin-off that features celebrities earning cash for charitable causes. Like the original, it's lively and family-friendly, but on occasion there's some slightly edgy banter that will go over most kids' heads. Some contestants like to yell, too, but it's all in good fun.
Is It Any Good?
This lively installment of the Wheel Of Fortune franchise offers viewers the same vowel-buying fun that the original series offers. Adding to the fray are the antics of the contestants, including people like Supermarket Sweep's Leslie Jones, Queer Eye's Karamo Brown, skateboarder Tony Hawk, and actress Teri Hatcher, who all enjoy the chance to play the iconic game and to win cash for charity.
It's not the first time celebrities have appeared on Wheel of Fortune. But Celebrity Wheel Of Fortune marks the first time that the series is airing on prime time. Meanwhile, despite the multiple opportunities the game offers to win the big jackpot, it still makes the process very complicated, which makes watching all the more fun. It's a highly entertaining show being played for good causes -- a win for everyone.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
