let's talk a little bit about the election here. i read that "wheel of fortune" has been earning a lot of money from political ads, almost $18 million so far in this election. it even seems like trump may have been able to slip one of his ads into one of the puzzles. take a look at this. >> 500. >> "u"? >> yeah. well that fills that out. [ ding ] >> yuuuuuuuge! >> there you go. [ applause ] >> jimmy: "yuuuuuuge!" of course, a lot of people have had a hard time getting a a handle on what donald trump actually stands for in his campaign. and the pundits themselves are even having trouble explaining it. just check out what this one guy said. >> with mr. trump, it's very clear. i can't create -- gene and i were talking in the green room. i can't create any parallax between the points of light that he throws out during his campaign stops. you know? >> right. >> where all the lines come together and i can see what is the motivational impulse back here.

you're the greatest. what is the show about? because you can describe it better than i can. >> yes. we have four decorated military heroes, we've got a navy seal commander, a sergeant from the united states army, a 19 year gunnery sergeant from the marine corps who's a female and badass, and we got an army ranger sniper and they're each going to lead teams of four normal civilians through these military teambuilding challenges. now, you watch the crazy, outlandish reality competition series, there's just a really good moral dna to this because if you listen to the military heroes we've got, they think there is a large gap between military folks and civilians. and these guys have so much real life experiences being in some crisis situations. >> jimmy: yeah. >> and having to manage large groups to move efficiently. so it's basically that passage of knowledge so these civilians can kind of learn through these mentors and evolve through this challenge and if they can make it to the end, well they get a a hefty paycheck. they could win up to a a million bucks. so it's really cool to see these really decorated heroes pass on some knowledge that has really been kept to the
military to these civilians and let them solve these teambuilding exercises in a way that's -- nothing like its on tv. it really is a special show. >> jimmy: and the guys that you have learning the lessons, whoever did the casting deserves an award. because that, i mean, you got some real characters. >> there's all different types of personalities. >> jimmy: there's characters on this show. >> yes, there is. >> jimmy: yeah.
