Imagine summer fun, TV and learning all rolled into one TV show! Spell-mageddon! #ABCFamily

Spell-Mageddon World Premiere July 24 – Watch Each Wednesday at 9/8c on ABC Family

We love this new ABC Family show hosted by Alfonso Ribeiro, imagine the fun and what you could learn in one hour? Yes, the one hour game show makes the spelling bee something to strive for and not be afraid of… but watch out, the contestants on Spell-Mageddon are not only distracted but stuff happens to them while the spelling challenges get increasingly tougher!

Watch this Clip

We got to speak with Alfonso before the premiere and he is just as funny and entertaining as we remember him from his Fresh Prince of Bel Air days.

We had to ask: Were you a good speller in school?

He tells us that spelling was not his “best area” but  math was #1! That’s why he can feel for the contestants when they get a spelling wrong…

Does Alfonso rely on his autocorrect on his mobile?

Oh no, he’s very careful and reads as he goes, he doesn’t do 100MPH, he proofreads… (smart!)

So if spelling isn’t really his passion, why this project?

Alfonso tells us that it’s a fun ride and he always wanted to be involved with something fun, like this, take the spelling bee and add crazy distractions! It’s pure comedy and the contestants are so great and so focused. The Zapp electric shockers and sounds that are made by them when they react are too funny. The best part is they want to be there and we get to see their real reactions and have fun.

Alfonso tells us that people are very excited about a show that is positive and they really enjoy it. It’s truly LOL – laugh out loud fun. It’s naturally, not staged funny and very positive in nature.

How do you describe the show to people who don’t get it?

He says – think of the ABC Wipeout Show and it’s like that but you are learning words.

 

Imagine summer fun, TV and learning all rolled into one TV show!

About Spell-Mageddon

Spell-Mageddon is an hour game show where contestants take on hilarious distractions while spelling increasingly challenging words!
