It’s Not Jeopardy, But RuPaul Just Landed A Hosting Gig On Another Show

At one point, it seemed like everyone and their mama waas vying for the hosting position on Jeopardy! after the passing of Alex Trebek. One of those individuals who was campaigning for the position at the podium was the man behind RuPaul’s Drag Race. Right now, the game show has settled on the tag team of Mayim Bialik and former champion Ken Jennings for Season 38. But not securing the gig hasn’t deterred RuPaul from moving forward, as he recently landed a hosting gig on another show.

The fan-favorite TV personality is set to host a revival of the word-based game show Lingo, according to TV Line. In addition, the Emmy winner will serve as an executive producer on the rebooted series. The show is expected to premiere on CBS as part of its primetime line in 2022. This latest edition of the show was greenlit after the massive success of the U.K. revival, which became the highest-rated game show launch in two decades. The overall news is exciting, though no one seems more pumped than RuPaul, as the host said:

We’re all ready to have fun again, and LINGO is the answer.
