George Takei and his husband, Brad Altman, are boldly going where no gay couple has gone before: The Newlywed Game.
Takei, who played Mr. Sulu on Star Trek, and his husband are the first same-sex couple to appear on The Newlywed Game. They will be on the new season premiere episode October 13.
“I never dreamed that we would be on the show,” said Takei. “So this is both a delight, a surprise and a wonderful indication of where society has come.”
Takei and Altman, who have been together for 22 years and were married September 14, 2008, will be joined on the show by Christopher Knight (The Brady Bunch) and Adrianne Curry (America’s Next Top Model), and Damien Gurganius and Nicole Brewer (The Biggest Loser: Couples 2).
Hosted by singer Carnie Wilson, the new season of The Newlywed Game will feature celebrity couples including Dancing with the Stars’ Edyta Sliwinska and Alec Mazo, and Lauri Waring and George Peterson of The Real Housewives of Orange County.
