Episode 3
August 4

Tonight on the program, Ant & Dec recreate the climactic scenes of "Dude, Where's My Car?", a woman's shoe fetish goes too far, and a guy who's a light kicker. No, seriously. He kicks lights.

Tonight's Panel:
Former "DWTS" champ and the requisite games host of the panel Drew Lachey (playing for American Cancer Society)
Actor Rondell Sheridan ("Cory in the House") (playing for Stuart House)
Return tripper Melissa Peterman (playing for 1st Witness Abuse Resource Center)
NFL Hall of Famer Jerry Rice (playing for DeBartolo Family Foundation & San Francisco 49ers Foundation)

For Jerry and Drew, this is more than about money, it's about pride, because guess who beat Jerry that season...

First challenger, from El Sobrante, CA... JAMES SOLIS. He's a student who's also in the martial arts. He's got a black belt, and he's going to kick out 60 ordinary push lights in 60 seconds. He hopes.

CHALLENGE Kick off 60 lights in 60 seconds with one foot
    PREDICTION WAGER  
Drew $25,000 SUCCEED    
Rondell $25,000 FAIL    
Melissa $25,000 FAIL    
Jerry $25,000 SUCCEED    

As a reminder, James fails if he misses a light at time OR if his foot touches the floor. So 60 on the clock... THE BET... IS ON!

And after 42 seconds, his foot touches the floor. And he was doing so well. He had six lights he missed, too. So that is a fail.

FAILURE Kick off 60 lights in 60 seconds with one foot
    PREDICTION WAGER  
Drew $25,000 SUCCEED $6250 $18,750
Rondell $25,000 FAIL $3000 $28,000
Melissa $25,000 FAIL $2500 $27,500
Jerry $25,000 SUCCEED $2000 $23,000

Rondell leads after round 1. But there are still three rounds to go.

Next up, from Bel Air, CA, ANNE-MARIE ASHLEY... and she's brought a lot of shoes with her. She's a student and a former Miss Teen California. She has well over 100 pairs of shoes. So far this year, she's spent $20,000. Her challenge: identifying a shoe's designer simply by walking in them.

CHALLENGE Identify 4 out of 5 shows while blindfolded
    PREDICTION WAGER  
Drew $18,750 SUCCEED    
Rondell $28,000 FAIL    
Melissa $27,500 SUCCEED    
Jerry $23,000 SUCCEED    

And it should be noted that none of the shows on display are Anne-Marie's. Okay, the blindfold... and the BET... ARE ON!

First, #7, a pair of Christian Louboutins. Anne-Marie says ... "Christian Louboutin." Next pair, #40, a pair of Betsey Johnsons. Strappy... high... "Betsey Johnson". That's good for two. #24... another pair of Betsey Johnsons. A little bit lower to the ground, though. "Betsey Johnson again!" Three! Everyone's dancing on Rondell. One more. Next pair is #53, Christian Lacroix. Sexy stilettos. "I think you gave me another pair of Betsey Johnsons." NO! One more chance, though... #30. This time... another pair of Betsey Johnsons. Pink. Lots of straps. "I really think these are Betsey Johnsons!" That's win!

And Melissa makes off with a few pairs.

SUCCESS Identify 4 out of 5 shows while blindfolded
    PREDICTION WAGER  
Drew $18,750 SUCCEED $5000 $23,750
Rondell $28,000 FAIL $8000 $20,000
Melissa $27,500 SUCCEED $5000 $32,500
Jerry $23,000 SUCCEED $5000 $28,000

From first to worst, Rondell Sheridan. Melissa is your new leader.

Next up, at 14 years of age, he's already a Junior Olympian (water polo). From Lake Oswego, OR, JONATHAN FRIEDMAN. Jono swims a lot, but his challenge doesn't require water. "I'm gonna stick spoons on my face!" He thinks he can stick 10 of them on his face and hold them for a five-count.

CHALLENGE Stick 10 spoons on his face and hold them for 5 seconds
    PREDICTION WAGER  
Drew $23,750 SUCCEED    
Rondell $20,000 SUCCEED    
Melissa $32,500 SUCCEED    
Jerry $28,000 FAIL    

Those are ordinary spoons, and Ant can't hold onto one. Two minutes on the clock... and THE BET... IS ON!

And after two minutes, the best he can do is seven. So that is a fail. But for the record, he has done this before.

FAILURE Stick 10 spoons on his face and hold them for 5 seconds
    PREDICTION WAGER  
Drew $23,750 SUCCEED $10,000 $13,750
Rondell $20,000 SUCCEED $15,000 $5000
Melissa $32,500 SUCCEED $4500 $28,000
Jerry $28,000 FAIL $3000 $31,000

So right now, it's Jerry in the lead, with Melissa not too far behind.

Finally, a team of lovely ladies that call themselves THE VALET BABES. The LA valets usually deal with a lot of celebrities. They think that they can retrieve Ant & Dec's car from a sea of black cars (here's a hint, it's the Mini Cooper with the Union Flag on it).

That's the challenge, and the bets are locked. Remember, if they damage a car OR if they fail to retrieve AND park the car, they will FAIL the challenge. 2:30 on the clock... and THE BET IS ON!

The strategy seems to be, find the car, make a channel, and drive. Strategy works, because with 18 seconds to spare, the car is on the red carpet and locked as a SUCCEED.

Now let's see who's won the night.

SUCCESS Retrieve Ant & Dec's car from a sea of 50 black cars in 2:30
    PREDICTION WAGER  
Drew $13,750 FAIL $13,749 $1
Rondell $5000 FAIL $5000 OUT
Melissa $28,000 ? $15,000 ?
Jerry $31,000 SUCCEED $5000 $36,000

A moral victory for Jerry, but will it be a REAL one? Melissa's wager is... SUCCEED! She wins with $43,000! So 1st Witness Abuse Resource Center in Minnesota will receive $43,000!

Back for more crazy stuff next week, we hope.
