In the upcoming episode, Bellamy Young (ABC’s “Scandal”) competes against comedian/musician Weird Al Yankovic in the first game, while in game two, actor Tony Hale (“Veep”) and actor Justin Long square-off with hopes of making it to the winners circle.

“I grew up in Roselle and I’ve lived in Piscataway with my husband, Dorryn and my son, Elijah for the last six years,” said Bernard-Simmons.

“I would commute to Piscataway for work and fell in love with the township," she added. "My family is very active in the community. My son plays Pop Warner football, and he will be attending Schor Middle School this year.” 

Bernard-Simmons said that she had been working on another TV project when the opportunity to compete on the Pyramid game show came up.

“I was able to wear yellow which is my power color, on the show,” she said. “I was very excited, and I came to win.”

So, does she make it to the winners circle?
