Celebrity 'Jeopardy!' Contestants and Schedule

by Brad Trechak, posted Apr 20th 2010 1:15PM
Jeopardy and Wheel of FortuneThe game show 'Jeopardy!' has announced the semi-finalists for its Million Dollar Celebrity Invitational Tournament, in which celebrities compete for $1 Million to go to the charity of their choice. The list of celebrities and the charities they will sponsor is as follows:

May 3
Pat Sajak (Vietnam Veterans of America)
Jane Curtin (U.S. Fund for UNICEF)
Harry Shearer (Common Ground Relief)

May 4
Michael McKean (International Myeloma Foundation)
Charles Shaughnessy (1736 Family Crisis Center)
Isaac Mizrahi (Good Shepherd Services)

May 5
Neil Patrick Harris (Food on Foot)
Jane Kaczmarek (Clothes Off Our Back)
Cheech Marin (Hispanic Scholarship Fund)

The winners of each round will move on to the 2-day finals, on May 6th and 7th.

It must have been easy for the studio to get Pat Sajak since both 'Jeopardy!' and 'Wheel of Fortune' are produced by Sony Pictures Studios. The line-up on May 4th isn't as interesting as the other two dates (Andy Richter had to drop out for that day due to his appearances on Conan O'Brien's tour), but the other two days pretty much rock, celebrity-wise. I'm secretly hoping that NPH wins it all but I have no idea how good each of the contestants are at 'Jeopardy!'.

Tell us: Who do you think will win?

I was wondering what happened to ANdy Richter. I was very happy that Michael McKean won. I am hoping he wins the whole thing. I have always loved him. I wouldn't mind if Neil Patrick harris won-sorry that Harry Shearer won't be in the finals.

Well, if NPH is even half as good at Jeopardy than he is at the Price is Right, he should be a lock for sure.......

Hm...tough call. Michael McKean kicked serious butt the last time he was on. Too bad Andy can't be there - I'd have liked to see them go head-to-head.

It sucks that Andy Richter won't be back. He kicked some major ass in his first game and I was looking forward to him coming back.

Maybe YOU don't see any good celebs on May 4th, but I do. Charles Shaughnessy was Mr. Sheffield on "The Nanny". I'll definitely tune in, I'm a big fan of Jeopardy AND him.
