Lucky studio audience members will also have the opportunity to win $5,000 cash money during “The Wendy 500,” which premieres April 30 and will debut as a different game each week. The week of April 30, fans will be led from the audience to the money booth. And the week’s of May 7 and May 14 respectively, participants will swing a sledgehammer in the strong man challenge, and throw up baskets in a basketball shootout.
Starting May 1, viewers will delight in “Wig A Day” when Williams will hang up her traditional long, curly locks for a different hairstyle every day. This last part makes us want to tune in most of all. Who would think to do that?! Wendy Williams!
