Alfonso Ribeiro Hosts ‘Fresh Prince’ Reunion

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The Fresh Prince Of Bel- Air cast is reuniting on TV – and the stakes are high.

Tomorrow (Oct. 22), Alfonso Ribeiro – aka Carlton Banks – will welcome his former co-stars James Avery, Tatyana Ali, and Karyn Parsons as contestants on his GSN game show, Catch 21.

Ribeiro was happy hosting the blackjack/trivia showdown rather than partaking in it.

At one point, players must sabotage one another’s hands, which made his former TV dad, James Avery, squirm.

Ribeiro says Avery “didn’t want to take out” either one of his beloved TV daughters, so he opted to lay low.

Despite the sweet competition, Ribeiro says the match-up was even since Avery is “very smart,” Ali knows her pop culture trivia, and Parsons is a card shark.

Back in the Fresh Prince days, Ribeiro and the crew would play poker after tapings and Parsons would join.

The cast also took a few trips to Las Vegas together, though Ribeiro is much better at blackjack today.
