Rapper Lil Jon and veteran rocker Meat Loaf were eliminated from the hit U.S. reality TV show on Sunday (15May11), leaving Matlin and Rich to compete for the $250,000 (£156,250) grand prize, which will be donated to a charity of the winner's choice.

The Children of a Lesser God star is playing for the Starkey Hearing Foundation, which helps provide free hearing aids to those less fortunate, while Rich is playing on behalf of the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

If Matlin wins, it will be a big boost for her ego - the Oscar-winning actress hit headlines last week (ends13May11) after it was revealed she owes $50,000 (£31,250) to U.S. tax authorities.
