Alfonso Ribeiro On TV Again!

For those of you who've been wondering what Carlton Banks, aka Alfonso Ribeiro is up to these days (all 3 of you), here ya go... wonder no more :o)

From EURweb:

Actor Alfonso Ribeiro... is taking on the role of host for the Game Show Network’s new series “Catch 21,” which premieres tonight, the 21st of July!

“Catch 21” pits three players in a game of cards. Each contestant is given one card and in order to up their number of cards, and thus their total, they have to answer a multiple choice question.
“Whoever gets that question correctly, they get $100 and control of the game (and) they get the next card in the deck,” Ribeiro explained. “They can keep that card or they can force it on one of the other players making their hand worse. The goal is to catch ‘21’ exactly, and if not, be the last player standing with a good hand..."

The blackjack component game has a possible jackpot of $25,000.

Well, there you have it! Tune in tonight and watch him do the game show host thing. If you can't wait until then, watch the corny promo for the show below. He actually does have that game show personality, so I suppose it's a smart move on his part. I wonder if he and Will Smith are pals?
