Lil' Romeo Joins Other Young'uns On 'Hollywood Squares'

Would you trust an 11-year-old rapper when big money is on the line?

A game show contestant faced that predicament recently when rapper Lil’ Romeo participated in “Young Stars Week” on “Hollywood Squares.” Luckily, the contestant didn’t trust him.

“I bluffed,” Romeo said in a “Hollywood Squares” press release. “They didn’t believe me, but even if they did, it’s a game so it’s cool.”

Lil’ Romeo fans can see the young rhyme slinger’s bluffing skills when the segments air December 24-28.

Country music star Billy Gilman and opera singer Charlotte Church also took part in “Young Stars Week,” along with a herd of young actors, including Alex D. Linz (“Max Keeble’s Big Move”), Alexa Vega (“Spy Kids”), Cole and Dylan Sprouse (“Big Daddy”), Evan Rachel Wood (“Once and Again”) and Mae Whitman (“One Fine Day”).

The show’s producer, veteran actress Whoopi Goldberg, remained in her center square spot for the special tapings.

Gilman had better luck convincing a contestant than Romeo, according to the press release. “I bluffed and they believed me,” he said. “I was a little nervous at the beginning because I didn’t know if I would know the right answer, but I had a feeling that this would be fun and it is.”

Lil’ Romeo, the son of rapper/No Limit head honcho Master P, released his self-titled debut album in July.
