Gertrude's chef competes on 'Hollywood Game Night'

The last time The Sun visited with Doug Wetzel, he was arm-deep in sauerkraut, preparing for the annual "KrautFest" at Gertrude's restaurant, where he is the executive pastry chef and, as owner John Shields calls him, the "kitchen czar."

But Wetzel cleaned up real good, judging from an NBC publicity photo, for his appearance on "Hollywood Game Night."

Hosted by Jane Lynch ("Glee"), the show has two celebrity teams, each captained by a civilian like Wetzel,  compete in various parlor-style guessing games. Celebrities play for charity; civilian contestants can win up to $25,000.  

Wetzel, who is contractually obligated not to speak about what happened on the show, plays on a team with celebrities Billy Eichner, Mekhi Phifer and Andy Richter. The opposing team's celebrities are "Hot in Cleveland" actresses Jane Leeves, Wendy Malick and Valerie Bertinelli.

The show with Wetzel airs on NBC tonight at 8 p.m.
