Carnie Wilson to host new "Newlywed Game"
Here comes the next "Newlywed Game" host.
Carnie Wilson, the Wilson Phillips singer who hosted her own talk show and appeared on VH1's "Celebrity Fit Club," is slated to host 40 episodes of a new GSN edition of the show where newly married couples answer questions to find out how well they know each other.
The original show, hosted by Bob Eubanks, debuted in 1966 on ABC, and went on to span over 20 years on the air.
"I've always loved game shows," said the 40-year-old Wilson, who began co-hosting the "GSN Live" interactive game show last year. "My personality and energy is perfect for something like this. First of all, I'm married, and I loved watching 'The Newlywed Game' when I was younger. I watched it all the time. I always hoped the couples would start fighting."
The new edition of "The Newlywed Game" premieres April 6. It will feature an updated set and a new bonus round with couples who have remained married since appearing on the show.
