"These are the stars: Ed O'Neill, Pamela Anderson, Don Rickles, Mayim Bialk, Mark Curry, Rita Rudner. And they're all here to play… Hollywood Teasers, where a player can win up to $50,000 in cash and prizes. And now, here's our game keeper, Robb Weller!"

Hollywood Teasers was a game show pilot similar to Hollywood Squares & All Star Blitz.


Two contestants played a game similar to All Star Blitz except with altered rules and six stars (not four).

To start, the category of a "Teaser" was revealed. A "Teaser" is a word puzzle in the same manner as Blitz (Blitz never revealed the category of the puzzle, though it was verbally announced at times). On a player's turn, he/she pressed an actuator (similar to a hand-held buzzer on Jeopardy!) which caused the board to flash. When the flashing stopped, a star's square lit up. The star was then asked a question posed by host Weller. When the star gave his/her answer, the contestant decided whether to agree or disagree on the answer. After each question, a clue to the "Teaser" was revealed (unlike on Blitz where a clue had to be revealed by surrounding the box on correct agreements or disagreements). The clue was either a letter, a word or a portion of a word. At some point, a player could wish to solve the puzzle or continue playing. The first player to solve the puzzle won the game and $500.

The first player to solve three "Teasers" won the match, a total of $1,500 and then selected a celebrity who would then reveal what prize that contestant had won.
