Spin the Wheel is an American game show premiering on Fox June 20, 2019.[1] Hosted by actor and comedian Dax Shepard, the namesake of the show is the 40-foot wheel that has wedges worth various sums of money. The show’s producers scout for Good Samaritan-type individuals to reward with a chance to earn up to $20 million per episode.[2][3]

Contestants will spin the wheel and then answer various pop culture trivia questions. A correct answer will allow them to add money to specific wedges of the wheel of their choosing, while a wrong answer will add a wedge that could reduce their total prize money if landed on. At certain periods in the game, contestants will be given the choice to walk away with their current prize money or continue spinning the wheel.
