“Spin the Wheel,” which will be hosted by Dax Shepard, pits contestants against a giant 40-foot wheel holding large sums of money.

Imagine Dragons’ Dan Reynolds Wants To Be Known As A Pop Star, Not Rock Star
Imagine Dragons have found success on both the rock and pop charts, although some critics question how rock they really are. But it turns out, frontman Dan Reynolds doesn’t care if people don’t think the band’s not rock enough.
“For the record I much prefer being called a pop star to rock star,” he shares on social media. “I want to change popular culture and create music that brings light to the masses. I’m not looking to impress you with how little I care; or how drugged I am; [or] how many women I can sleep with. [I'm] not interested."
He adds, "I relate with the rock and roll attitude of 'be you unabashedly,' fight for what you believe in [and protesting] wrongs. However, I don’t see this very much in the 'rockstar' world today. I saw it in the '90s. Today I see selfishness and self worship."
When one fan suggested that not all rock stars these days are bad, he did admit that was true, and noted, “OK for now on I only want to be called “that one white guy that was wrong for awhile about a lot of things and now is trying to make change who screams a lot in his music and likes to write big choruses and run on sentences”
