"Today (insert celebrities) play Personality with our special guest star (insert special guest star). And now, here's your host, Larry Blyden!"

Personality was a short-lived daytime game show where three celebrities try to predict how much they know about other celebrities.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

A panel of three celebrities, each playing for a member of the studio audience or home viewer, tried to predict how other celebrities answered a series of questions asked in pre-recorded interviews.

Round 1[edit | edit source]

In the first round two of the panelists were given three possible responses for each question asked to the third and after they chose, the correct answer was shown.

Round 2[edit | edit source]

In the second round, the celebrity panelists had to guess how a group of people responded to questions related to one of them.

Round 3[edit | edit source]

In the third round, the celebrity panelists had to guess how a different celebrity answered questions.


Each correct answer was worth $25 for the person they were playing for, and the top-scoring celebrity of the day won a vacation for his/her partner.

A Board Game called Personality Game was released by Milton Bradley in 1968.
