THE WHAMMY IS TURNING UP THE HEAT ON THE SEASON FINALE OF
ABC’S ‘PRESS YOUR LUCK,’ WEDNESDAY, AUG. 7
“103” – Host Elizabeth Banks is keeping it cool while the WHAMMY turns up the heat as contestants try to win BIG BUCKS on the season finale of “Press Your Luck,” airing WEDNESDAY, AUG. 7 (8:00-9:00 p.m. EDT), on ABC. (TV-PG) Episodes can also be viewed the next day on ABC.com, the ABC app and Hulu. Joining Elizabeth Banks are contestants Joe Marino (hometown: Grapevine, Texas), Peggy Shevlin (hometown: Palm Desert, California) and George Murphy (hometown: Sherman Oaks, California).
During each game of “Press Your Luck,” three contestants compete against each other answering questions to earn spins on the Big Board. Contestants then use their spins to win cash and prizes while trying to avoid the WHAMMY, which could take all of their winnings and leave them with nothing. The winning contestant moves on to the all-new bonus round for the chance to win a fortune in cash and personalized prizes tailor-made specifically for them.
