Stars Jack Black, Wilmer Valderrama, Jane Lynch, Julie Bowen and Chris O’Donnell will help present Showcases and contestants win prizes by playing various pricing games throughout the week. Whatever prizes the contestants win, the stars receive the value of the prizes in cash for their selected charities. In the second Showcase Showdown, the star spins the Big Wheel and the amount they land on is multiplied times $100, meaning they could add between $500-$10,000 to their charity bank.
