“The Fame Game” will air on Channel 7 and streaming service 7Plus this weekend, promising a “cavalcade of legends” who will expose the realities and the dark side of fame in all its forms.
The 7News Spotlight special will feature Gold Logie winners Toby Barber (“Sale of the Century”, “Wheel of Fortune” and “Family Feud”) and Rowena Wallace (“Sons and Daughters”, “Home and Away” and “Neighbours”).
“The Fame Game” will also feature radio and television presenter Greg Evans, and former “Neighbours” and “Home and Away” star Matt Stevenson.
In addition to the actors and presenters, the show is also boasting some of the most well-known and seemingly ‘divisive’ figures who found fame via reality shows including Brynne Edelsten, Ajay Rochester, and Melissa Rawson and Bryce Ruthven from last year’s Married at First Sight.
The one-off special will take the form of a dinner party and interviews, hosted by Ada Nicodemou and Cameron Daddo, who recently announced a new podcast alongside brother Andrew, “So You Want To Make A TV Show”.
A dramatic trailer for “The Fame Game” promises “Australia’s biggest TV personalities in one explosive night that blows the lid on it all” and predicts the fallout from the show “will rock Australia”.
“The stars reveal the glittering excess of the glory days and the dark secrets of fame’s downside – death threats, assaults, drugs, money, crazed fans, terrifying stalkers and navigating the poisonous world of social media and online trolls,” publicity from Channel 7 said.
“The road to fame can take many twists and turns. In recent years that road has been littered with car crashes thanks to reality television, with ordinary people thrust into the spotlight and unprepared for the repercussions.
“Join the biggest names of the entertainment industry as they gather for this not-to-be-missed night of revelations, culminating in the dinner party to end all dinner parties, with one very special moment that will bring you to applause.
“7News Spotlight: The Fame Game” will air on Sunday at 8:50pm after “The Voice”.
