While it's unclear whether Ryan will be there for only a one episode stint as a guest or play more of a recurring part, his presence acts as a welcome support for his friend and co-star.

In a clip the TV host shared, he was seen in one episode hiding behind a wall, with him reading out a clue to one of the contestants.
