Celebrating Celebrity Crushes With Laughter
10 January 2017 | by atlasmbSee all my reviews

"Big Fan" is ostensibly a game show, but like many that feature celebrities, it is an excuse to see the stars. And the prize given to the winning contestant is only a small trophy--shaped like a rotary fan.

"Big Fan" moves quickly. Hosted by Andy Richter, it consists of three rounds. The three contestants (who are real fanatics when it comes to the celebrity of the day) first compete against each other, answering trivia questions about their celebrity crush. In round three, the winner faces the celebrity himself, which sounds ridiculous (because how could the fan know more about the celeb than the celeb himself?), but it works, in part because it's about who can answer faster.

In episode one, Aaron Rodgers confronts his devotees. Aaron is a very good-natured guy, making the show enjoyable. He embraces the contestants (literally and figuratively), though it would be natural to be awkward in the presence of people who treat you like a god.

We don't learn a lot about the celebrity that is of consequence, but it is interesting to know that Rodgers had a UFO sighting.

The show moves quickly, the fans really are adorkable, and everyone has a good time. I'll be awaiting the episode that features Jennifer Lopez.

Update 1/18/17: After watching the episode with Kristen Bell (disclaimer: I am a big fan myself), I am sold. They should rename the show BIG FUN.
