Tattoos, Tacklers & Treehouse Dwellers
Once again, welcome to the Bank of Hollywood. Your
panel is comprised of Candy Spelling (wife of the late Aaron Spelling), Vanessa
Rousso (Poker Player), Melody Thornton (Pussycat Doll) and Sean Patterson
(Wilhelmina Models president). Bryan Callen is the host.
Let's get started with...
Client: Adrienne Smith and the New York Sharks
Looking for: $65,000
Reason: Represent the United States in the first annual Women's Tackle Football
We see footage of their play. The $65,000 is actually not the whole amount
(which is $200,000), but it would be a big help to them. It would also help them
focus more on training and less on fund-raising. Sean likes the fact that they
only want a part and not all of it, so he says yes. Melody also says yes, while
Vanessa, who says it's just too much money, says no. Candy says that football is
a dangerous sport, but she says yes anyways. It's 3-1 yes, and the women score.
Client: Tanni Williams
Looking for: $14,675
Reason: Help herself with talent lessons, etc. to be a big star.
Tanni sings 'Amazing Grace' for the group, and she does sound good. She sings in
the outside mall for tips and her parents can't support her. Sean wants her to
sing something with Melody and they both reprise 'Amazing Grace'. Tanni pales in
comparison with Melody (who has a great set of pipes) but she does hold her own.
Vanessa is concerned that she'll lose her childhood and Melody is concerned that
the music industry is not a nice place. Candy knows what her daughter's
obsession is and how hard it is. She says yes, as does Vanessa. Sean wants her
to enjoy childhood, so he says no. Melody makes her promise to be strong and
she, in tears, says yes. She gets hugs from Melody and Vanessa and maybe a star
is born. TRANSACTION: GRANTED
Client: Brent Loudermilk
Looking for: $11,250
Reason: Wants to swallow 21 swords at the same time.
He wants Candy to help. Sean wants to know why people would to it, and Brent
says that people will watch. He swallows a 27 inch sword and Candy pulls it out.
Sean tells Brent that he'd be very popular in West Hollywood. Heh.
Sean says that he's too afraid to give out the money and says no. So does Melody
and so does Vanessa (who says that she can't support a one time stunt). So
that's enough to slice up Brent's hopes. TRANSACTION: DENIED
Client: Dan Stasiukiewicz
Looking for: $65,250
Reason: Wants to become a professional boxer
He can sing while punching a bag. He can sing...off key. Badly. He wants to sing
with the entourage and be a complete package - singing and boxing. He currently
makes $45,000 in the physician industry. Dan complements the whole panel on
their looks and Sean says that it's the cheapest thing he's heard all week.
Vanessa would have said yes, but adding the singing to it makes him sound like a
phony. Candy, think that starting at 30 is way too old, so she says no, and
Melody also votes him down. That's 3 no's, and Dan's dreams get knocked out.
Client: Shanika Paterson
Looking for: $31,250
Reason: Wants to remove her tattoos and become professional.
Shanika has over 11 tattoos on her arms and sides. Her mom was a single mom and
she was a wild child. Sean says to find her wild cousin who led her down this
path and smack her upside the head. Shanika says it's cheaper to get one than
to remove one (where Sean says "with all due respect, duh"). Shanika wants to make sure that her
relatives don't go the same path she does, but the last time that she got a
tattoo was a year ago. She's now 28, so she started at 11 and had 17 years of
mistakes. The last one is he biggest one. Shanika says to judge her on the
little girl who's ready top break free. Melody falls for it and says yes.
Vanessa appreciates the regret, but she says that she is how she treats others,
and her skin shouldn't dictate it, so she says no. Sean points out that she got
one a year ago, and for that reason, he votes no. It's down to Candy, who says
that she doesn't have any proof that Shanika won't do it again, so it's a no.
Client: Brian Ecker
Looking for: $9,750
Reason: House removal and add a Jacuzzi to his house...his TREEhouse.
Yes, he lives in a treehouse. Brian says it's independant and free, and he's
going green. It's in the backyard of his parents house and I'm sensing that
Frank Moresca has a new playmate. He's 39 and likes to be there to support his
80 year old parents. His doctor recommended the jacuzzi and the house insurance
only covers his parents house. Candy worries about the tree and Brian says that
the house is now supported by uprights. Vanessa doesn't want to judge people
based on a lifestyle, so she says yes. Candy says that his 80 year old parents
can help him out (wha?) so she says no. Melody doesn't want him to be an
enabler, so she says no. We need a yes from Sean, who has already wondered why
they are even discussing this. 'I must be completely insane about giving this to
you because I vote yes'. So we have a 2-2 deadlock and we go to deliberations.
Client: The Vaswani Sisters, Preeti and Jaya
Looking for: $25,093.75
Reason: A website dedicated to Bollywood Dancing
They says they would be the first group to teach Bollywood Dancing (They
aren't). They also want the money to take tours and do recruits. They would
stream the video and make a $9.95 monthly subscription fee. They have classes of
100 people. Vanessa has a website, and hers only cost $10,000, so it's a no form
her. Melody says that there's more that they need to do, but she says yes? She
does, but Sean and Candy both think the asking price is too high and they say
no. Bollywood on Bank of Hollywood goes the same way as Bollywood Dancing does
on America's Got Talent; absolutely nowhere. TRANSACTION: DENIED
Client: Roger Tinsley...aka 'Dangerman'
Looking for: $31,750
Reason: To continue his campaign to promote literacy to undereducated kids in
We see video of him helping out kids. As for the money? $6,000 goes to the
video studio, $3,500 to an illustrator and $1,500 to a website. Sean is worried
that the money is going more towards advertising and less towards education.
Roger counters that by creating a positive African-American role model, that he
can make a difference. The logo is trademarked so he can eventually make money
from it (right now, he's getting it from grants). Sean wonders if it's to much
money and he votes no. Candy is also worried that the money is more promotional
than pro-educational and votes no. Vanessa hasn't been shows why the money is
needed to fund the program, so she also votes no. Danger man has been foiled by
the Bank of four. TRANSACTION: DENIED.
Now we go back to Brian Ecker. The panel decides...to help Brian out with the
money. So Brian gets his Jacuzzi in a treehouse, which sounds sort of neat if
you think about it. TRANSACTION: GRANTED
That's it for this episode. a New hour of pandering starts next week.
