Mike Richardson is a hard man... He burps,
scratches, and would rather play on his computer than with his daughter... But
that's going to change if he wants to win thousands of dollars for his wife...
because Mike is about to receive a Hidden Agenda.
And the person on the giving end is his wife Marni
of Lindenhurst, NY.
TASK 1: Metrosexual Makeover
There's a mud mask, cucumber slices, and
tweezers. If Mike uses all three on his face, it's worth $2000.
FAIL. Onto plan B... Force-feed him the task.
Note: it's never a good thing when a man says, "It burns." That works
TASK 2: Five Good Reasons...
Mike has to write out five reasons why he loves
Marni for $200 a reason. Even if it's unfit for broadcast.
1) She's beautiful inside and out.
2) She's thoughtful
3) She's classy
4) She's a good mom.
5) She's forever true.
That's $1000 ($3000 total).
And she gets a bonus prize package from L'oreal.
TASK 3: The Lindenhurst Tea Party
$2500 says that you can't have a tea party for
your daughter Emily.
Marni's plan of attack: a fake tea party contest.
It works up until offering the stuffed animal a tea. After the break...
FINAL TASK: Tutu Much
- For $1000: Get Mike to fold all of Joe's
- For $2500: Get Mike to face his fear... and pet a rat.
- For $3500: Get Mike to put on a tutu to pose and pirouette.
Joe poses as "Eileen's" "brother-in-law" to help
out with this task.
Mike complains his hands are too big to fold.
That won't win the money. Neither does half-assing the task. Mike goes all-in on
the next attempt.
The rat... isn't going to get petted. Sorry.
That's a miss.
Meanwhile, Mike's best friend John enters the
fray to provide us with an audience. All Mike's gotta do is dress and pose like
a complete tool. And to help him: The Ballerhino Male Tutu. Mike... won't do it.
John decides to do it. And that gets Mike in a tutu... That gets Debi onto the
scene with a check for $10,000 cash money.
More hidden cameras and more Hidden Agenda next
week. ... Oh dear.
