If you’re just not feeling up for the hard-hitting drama or twisty-turny plot of a primetime TV show, game shows are absolutely perfect. There may be a bit of drama every once in a while, but the stakes are usually very low and everything is sure to be wrapped up by the end of the episode. What a relief!

And, just as with the original show, the best part of Pyramid is easily all of the celebrity guests. Here’s a look at which celebrities you can see compete with their non-celeb counterparts this season!

In each round, one person on the team gives the other person clues in order to get them to guess a word within a given category. Here are all of the celebs who will be featured on the latest season of $100,000 Pyramid:
