Gene Simmons is best known as the KISS frontman, but his latest occupation seems to be professional reality TV star. Gene Simmons has starred in his own reality TV series on A&E called Gene Simmons’ Family Jewels, and he was a contestant on the first edition of The Celebrity Apprentice. Now, Gene Simmons is scheduled to compete on the reality game show Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader.
Just like on Celebrity Apprentice, Gene Simmons isn’t taking part in the game for his own benefit, but instead he is playing for charity. Gene Simmons will be attempting to earn money for the Elizabeth Glazer Pediatrics AIDS Foundation. Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader airs on Friday, November 7 from 8 PM to 9 PM ET/PT on FOX.
Right after Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader, the original members of En Vogue will reunite for the first time on Don’t Forget The Lyrics. They will also be competing on behalf of their favorite charity. Don’t Forget The Lyrics airs on Friday, November 7 from 9 PM to 10 PM ET/PT on FOX.
