The Game Show You Should Watch, Based on Your Zodiac Sign
Are you more of a quiz-game type or an intense competition fan?
Game shows have been around for a long time. And whether you're more into word-guessing games or intense physical competitions, there's truly something for everyone. Need help narrowing down your choices? Ahead, astrologers share the game show you should watch, based on your zodiac sign. Keep reading to find out if you should tune into Password, Family Feud, The Amazing Race, or something else entirely.
Aries: The Challenge
Daring Aries will take on anything that comes their way. The Challenge, filled with high stakes, intrigue, and social triumphs, will immediately capture the attention of these fire signs.
"They'd not only enjoy watching but probably start imagining themselves in the contestants' shoes," says Raquel Rodriguez, astrologer and founder of Your Zodiac. Given that Aries are competitive, athletic, and adventurous, this show will hit all the right notes for them—especially when it comes to seeing who gets eliminated.
Taurus: The Price is Right
It's no secret that Tauruses love luxurious things. And with the prize selections on The Price is Right ranging anywhere from jewelry to a car to a European excursion, they're sure to be interested.
"Methodical Taurus would have the patience to perfectly guess prices on The Price is Right games like CliffHangers, Check Game, and Lucky $even," adds astrologer Bella Nguen, who works as an astrology columnist at Indielogy Magazine. Their practical nature will have them guessing right every time—and, of course, never going over.
Gemini: Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?
Geminis love learning new things almost as much as they enjoy putting their quick thinking to the test, which is why Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? is definitely the game show they should watch.
"Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? would keep them engaged with its range of questions and fast-paced decision-making," says Rodriguez, who adds that the mental gymnastics required will be a thrilling experience for any Gemini.
Cancer: Family Feud
A light-hearted, funny competition show that pits families against one another? Family Feud is right up Cancer's alley.
"The low stakes, good-natured competition satisfies their desire for kindness and decency," says Alice Smith, astrologer at Alice Smith Astrology. Cancer loves spending time with family, so it's likely they'd make a whole event out of watching an episode, even playing their own version.
Leo: Let's Make a Deal
The whole premise of Let's Make a Deal has audience members dressing up in costumes in the hopes that they get selected to play the game. It's all about being the center of attention, which Leos crave.
Smith says Leos love to dress up and put on a show. And with new, outlandish outfits on every single episode, these fire signs are sure to be entertained. Plus, Leos love rooting for others, even if they're complete strangers, so they'll want to know who ends up winning the big prizes.
On this game show, contestants come up with one-word clues to help their partner guess the "password" correctly. "Virgos appreciate a game show like Password because they're the editors of the zodiac," says Smith.
The whole idea appeals to Virgo's appreciation for precision, exactitude, and conciseness, adds Smith. They'll definitely get excited when a correct guess is made and cheer for the person playing.
Libra:Wheel of Fortune
Like Gemini, Libras need mental stimulation. They also love balance and harmony and don't want to watch something super intense. Wheel of Fortune happens to tick all these boxes.
Rodriguez says they'll appreciate the equal chances given to each participant and the blend of luck and skill involved. Plus, they'd have a fun time trying to solve the word puzzles before the contestants.
"Tenacious Scorpio has the physical and mental grit needed to outwit, outplay, and outlast on Survivor," says Nguen.
Scorpios are determined and keep things close to their chests. They'll enjoy all the little secrets and gameplay moves that something as intense as Survivor has to offer. Even if they aren't the ones competing, they'll be coming up with strategies and figuring out how their favorite contestants can win the whole game.
Sagittarius: The Amazing Race
It's not a shock that adventure-loving Sagittarius should watch The Amazing Race. In a show where teams travel all around the world, these fire signs can live vicariously through them while also learning new things.
"Sagittarius is a fiery mutable sign, which means that they're spontaneous and do their best when they get to figure things out as they go," says Smith. "They don't want to overplan because they know that things change, and that's exactly the kind of spirit it takes to win a game like The Amazing Race."
Capricorn: The $ 100,000 Pyramid
Capricorn has both the logic and the skill to excel at something like The $100,000 Pyramid. "Their ability to make rapid connections between topics gives them an edge in this word association game," says Nguen.
As leaders who strive for success, Capricorns will always come up with the correct clues to bring their team to victory. They'd have fun watching, knowing they'd be one of the smartest people in the room.
Aquarius: Win Ben Stein's Money
As a sign that doesn't want to be like everyone else, Aquarius would probably watch something that's not currently airing. And Winning Ben Stein's Money is right in their wheelhouse.
Nguen describes these signs as quick-witted and says they could outsmart anyone while debating trivia, which fits the energy of the show. They have a lot of knowledge about various things and would be able to hold their own without a doubt.
Pisces: Name that Tune
Pisces loves escaping reality in any way they can. And since they're pretty whimsical at times, Name that Tune is a perfect game show for them to watch. These fish are proud of their wide-ranging taste in music, so they'll have fun guessing right along with the players.
"Therefore, Name that Tune provides the perfect opportunity for them to call upon and showcase their vast knowledge," says Smith.
