Big Fan, ABC’s celebrity-packed game show from Jimmy Kimmel and Banijay Studios North America, will premiere Monday, January 9 at 10 pm ET, immediately following The Bachelor, ABC says. The first two celebrity guests will be Matthew McConaughey and NFL quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
The premiere will feature two back-to-back half-hour episodes, with McConaughey first, followed by Rodgers (the Rodgers episode will include special guest Alex Trebek).
The game show, hosted by Andy Richter, is based on the “Who Knows…?” segments of Jimmy Kimmel Live, pitting celebrity against super-fans in their knowledge about the celebrity. The bit went viral when Katy Perry lost the game to one of her biggest fans and lost. Super-fan winners are awarded “a priceless experience with the celebrity.”
Executive producers are Jimmy Kimmel; David Goldberg, Banijay Group President and Banijay Studios North America CEO; and Caroline Baumgard, chief creative officer, Banijay Studios North America.
