NEW YORK, May 7, 2001 — Jimmy Kimmel, former co-host of “Win Ben Stein’s Money,” is back to congratulate smarty-pants Ben Stein on successfully completing 500 episodes of “Win Ben Stein’s Money” on Monday, May 14 at 7:30 p.m. on COMEDY CENTRAL.
The show’s contestants compete against Stein to win his pot of $5,000 in prize money — the more money contestants win, the less Stein gets to keep. Stein is joined by his smart, sexy and spunky co-host Nancy Pimenal, whose sarcastic wit provides comic relief.
