Jeff Thisted and Angelle Tymon Join Veterans Shandi Finnessey and Jessica York as Hosts of 'quiznation' and '100 Winners' Thisted Makes His Debut May 18 as Part of Bob Barker Tribute

SANTA MONICA, Calif., May 18 -- GSN's stable of hosts for its late night participation TV programming block, PLAYMANIA, has grown and now includes Shandi Finnessey, Jessica York, Jeff Thisted and Angelle Tymon. "100 Winners" and "quiznation" can be seen Tuesday through Sundays from 12:00 to 2:00 AM, ET. Thisted, who also works on "The Price is Right," makes his debut on Friday, May 18 as part of a special tribute to Bob Barker's contribution to television game shows.

"quiznation" features a variety of letter, number and word games; trivia games and more for viewers to call in with their answers for cash and prizes. "100 Winners" allows contestants who answer trivia and game questions correctly to choose from one of 100 safe deposit boxes from the GSN vault, each containing a hidden prize.

The hosts will all appear on both series. Finnessey is a former Miss USA from 2004 and also co-hosts LINGO with Chuck Woolery. York can also be seen on RSN and Tymon is a recent college graduate and was a member of the behind-the-scenes team of PLAYMANIA.

Both "100 Winners" and "quiznation" are produced by Game Show Enterprises in conjunction with the U.K.'s Optimistic Media.
