Tonight, two more people inherit the
earpieces, the hidden cameras, and the challenge... Earn $50,000 by
doing the crazies stuff imaginable.
First up tonight is Ron Ramsey, a
33-year-old single dad and telemarketer from Detroit.
TASK 1: DIRTY JOBS WITH RON
RAMSEY. Sit down in a Porta-potti that hasn't been cleaned in a
month. While sitting, you have to get someone to do three things...
1) Hand you some reading material, 2) hand you some tissue, 3) and
engage in a one-minute conversation. (PASS, $5000)
TASK 2: SLEEP LIKE A CHILD.
Pretend to fall asleep on someone's shoulder for 30 seconds. You
only get three tries.
Try 1... FAIL.
Try 2... SUCCESS! (PASS,
TASK 3: SPY FOR ME. Craw under
someone's table and convince them to spy on his cheating girlfriend
AND get them to take a picture of her. (PASS,
TASK 4: CASH PHONE. Using a cell phone headset, get strangers
to answer three questions asked passively. The three questions...
- What former boy band member sings "Sexyback"?
- Spell "belligerent"... (B-E-L-L-I-G-E-R-E-N-T... Time up) (FAIL,
TASK 5: IDENTITY THEFT. Get
a stranger to write down his drivers' license ID and take his
thumbprint. To win, he must say, "I need to borrow your identity for
a second." (FAIL, $15,000)
And now it's time for the Final Challenge. Complete this, and the
$15,000... becomes $30,000.
FINAL CHALLENGE: A FUNERAL...
IN MY HEAD. Ron has a hearse and a problem. His hearse is broken
down. To double his money, he has to get someone to load his coffin
into their vehicle and then deliver it to its final resting place.
Before he does that, though, he has to pause for a moment of silence
and a final group hug.
Within the 10, he manages to find
someone to haul it away in their cab. And... a drive off? Come on,
drive off... GOT IT! That's $30,000! And a cabbie has a new friend,
but that's the world of the game show in your head.
Next on episode 2 of the show is
Michael Rinzler, a 36-year-old marketing executive for a toy
TASK 1: STRIP SEARCH. Get one
guy to tell you if they're wearing boxers or briefs, what color they
are, and they have to show you their underwear. "The irony of this
thing is that my underwear is chafing me right now." (PASS,
TASK 2: HE'S JUST NOT THAT INTO
YOU. Convince a woman to dump your angry girlfriend, played by
Joe. She must tell him that she was with him last night, that he is
getting too needy and over-emotional, and that the relationship is
TASK 3: DATE MY MOM. Meet
Betty. She's your mom for this challenge. And she's just been stood
up for her blind date. Convince one stranger to pose as "Paul", a
rich Ivy League doctor, and to go on a date with her. (PASS,
TASK 4: CHEAT! (BUT DON'T NUDGE).
Convince a woman that you are a private detective and you need her
help to investigate a cheating husband, played by "guy on phone".
She needs to flirt with him. You need to get three pictures...
holding hands, fondling his hair, and a hug & kiss. (FAIL,
TASK 5: PAY LESS.
Convince a woman to sell you the shoes off her feet for $20. (PASS, $20,000)
Final challenge for $40,000...
FINAL CHALLENGE: AN INFOMERCIAL... IN MY HEAD.
Convince someone to sample a smoothie that you've invented AND give
a testimonial. The only problem is... the ingredients read off like
the LAST game show related job Joe Rogan had... You know. If you can
get a positive testimonial for all three smoothies, then you double
your take to $40,000.
- Smoothie 1: Raw garlic, sour mix,
and horse radish.
- Smoothie 2: Beets, raw onion, and vinegar.
- Smoothie 3: Ground up raw fish.
He gets a couple of takers, but no
one willing to say anything about the smoothies that can be
translated into $40,000... so it's a FAIL. No $40,000, but he still
has $20,000... that's enough money to go get some mouthwash for the
game show in his head.
Two more people next week.
