The Gong Show
by Chico Alexander
Host: Tommy Maitland with Wilder Zoby & the Gong Show Orchestra
From Hollywood, where lives can change
in a day and then change back, it's the return of a classic...
It's "The Gong Show"! And here's the host, a guy who may or may
not be Mike Myers under a whole lot of prostheses (C-Note: if he
isn't, he's been doing his homework).
FUN FACT: Zach & Ken starred in
"The Hangover" together. Zach & Will starred in "The Lego Batman
The rules? Heh. What rules? All you have to do is show up and show
out. If the judges give you the full ride, they score you on
entertainment value from 0-10. If the judges give you the Gong,
there's the door. The act with the highest score out of 30 will
win the astronomical amount of 2000 big ones... and 17 little
And as always, a disclaimer: both contestant and non-contestant
acts may appear on this show. Any act not given the opportunity to
be judged and scored featured non-contestant talent.
TONIGHT'S SHOW (with judges' scores)
- Tom Franek, Piano Sutra - he plays the piano... in various
poses... (Will: 3... which becomes a 4, Ken: 10, Zach: 10) - 24
- Mary Bleeds: Mary plays the harmonica... with her friend Midas
in her mouth. Did we mention that Midas is a Chaco golden knee
tarantula? She beats the Gong by YEA much (Zach: 8, Ken: 0, Will:
1 million... shortened to 10) - 18
- The Unipiper: a Scottish sasquatch who performs the 1812
Overture (complete with pyrotechnics) and Ode to Joy on a set of
bagpipes while riding a unicycle (Will: 6, Ken: 6, Zach: 4) - 14
- Married with Bananas: a married couple who do ... very
interesting things with bananas. (Will: 10, Ken: 10, Zach: 10) -
- The Sensei: an elderly black belt who combines martial arts with
disco dancing. Will combines a mallet with a GONG!
- Sal Strange: a Coney Island singer who sings "Tip Toe Through
the Tulips". Ken tip toes to the GONG.
- Uncle Clutch: a "WWE reject" that sings a shock-rock lullaby on
the ukulele (Will: 0, Ken: 0, Zach: 10... he'll give a 10 to
anything) - 10
- Kevin & Elaine: they sing an original song, "Never Gong an
Asian"... with a rap interlude. A very BAD rap interlude. Ken
dances... to the whole song... and right under the wire... here
comes the GONG. I made a funny.
- The Buddy Lee Experience: a 58-year-old whose jump rope skills
pay the bills (Will: 10, Ken: 10, Zach: 10) - ANOTHER PERFECT 30!
- Albert (Bill Lewis): he leads the audience, the judges, and the
host in a round of "Shaving Cream" (Non-contestant talent)
- April Hava Shenkman's Pig vs. the World: She sings... very FAST.
Too fast for the music, believe it or night. (Will: 8, Ken: 9,
Zach: 10) - 27
- The Devoted Diva: sings an ode to Will Arnett to the tune of "O
Mio Babbino, Caro" (Will: 10, Ken: 10, Zach: 0) - 20
And we end tonight's show with a TIE between The Buddy Lee
Experience and Married with Bananas. And in the event of a tie,
the judges have always chosen the winner. This time, the
conference is done in the open, and the winner... MARRIED WITH
BANANAS! They get the check for $2000.17 and the always coveted
never duplicated Gong Show Trophy!

This season, we're moving
some of the games out onto the lawn!
HOLD MY BALLS!: One team member holds two balls. A wrong
answer means another ball must be added. If the balls

relate to answering the last name and what clue rhymes
with the last name.
- At the end of one round of play, Brent leads, 9-2.
BLOCK THIS WAY:

SMASH THE BUZZER! This season, we've moved the game to
the new outdoor set - with a pool of balls.
- Kayla still leads, 23-20.
- Team Kayla gets I Touch Myself and Natural Woman for 4
more, 27 total. Team Brent gets Midnight Train to
Georgia, Locked Out of Heaven, I Kissed a Girl, and
Sorry for 8 more, 28 total.
WHERE YA GOIN'? Each destination is worth 5 points.
- Lauren gets Super Bowl, tattoo parlor, car wash,
Target, Dairy Queen, bathroom, and Notre Dame for 35
points and a total of 63 for Brent. Kayla's team needs
eight to win. Matt gets zoo, Neverland, Costco, earth,

by Chico Alexander & Chris Wolvie
Host: Chris Hardwick
After a brief preview earlier this
summer, The Wall is back with more money for more deserving
teams... like Aaryn & Milton of Baltimore. Aaryn & Milton are
looking for money for him to live the rest of his days and for her
to pay off her medical school loans.
After the Freefall round, they end up with $65,004 after running
out the last three questions, and Milton is taking that money
behind the Wall, while Aaryn plays the balls.
ROUND 2: Freebies drop from #5 and #7, giving her another $125,001
for a total of $190,005.
- Q1 (1): a) Bradley Cooper b) Ed Helms c) Zach Galifianakis: in
"The Hangover Part II", which actor played a character who got a
face tattoo similar to Mike Tyson's? Milton goes with B... and
he's right for another... dollar.
- Q2 (DOUBLE 5): a) Arizona b) Colorado c) New Mexico: featuring
over 500 launchings over the course of nine days, the world's
largest hot air balloon festival takes place every October in
which US state? Milton takes a guess on A... but it was C, so
we're going to see money go away... $175,000 worth.
- Q3 (TRIPLE 4): a) Pasta Fazool b) Pizza c) Fettuccine: Which of
the following dishes was not mentioned in "That's Amore"? Milton
goes over the song and goes with C... RIGHT for $55,100, putting
their round total at $70,106.
But as you know, the Wall gives, and the Wall takes away. The two
Reds drop... $1... and $100 for a final halftime take of $70,005.
ROUND 3: Free Greens go in #7, #6, #2, and #5... $100... $1
MILLION... $50,000... and $400,000 for a total of $1,520,105.
- Q1 (2): a) Sapporo b) Okinawa c) Nagano d) Kyoto: An annual
tradition in Japan is gathering to watch the blooming of the
sakura, or cherry blossoms. A popular viewing spot is Maruyama
Park, located in what city that served as Japan's capital for over
1000 years? Milton tries A... but it was D, and back comes...
- Q2 (DOUBLE 6): a) Ford b) Dodge c) Toyota d) Pontiac: Oprah
Winfrey famously kicked off the 19th season of her talk show by
giving everyone in the studio audience their own car. The model
audience members received was a G6 from which make of car? Milton
ruminates about Dodge Caravans before locking in D... and he's
right for $400,010!
- Q3 (3): a) Latin b) Greek c) Hebrew d) Aramaic: Currently housed
at the British Museum, the Rosetta Stone is an artifact inscribed
with Egyptian hieroglyphics in two different forms & words in
which other language? Milton went with C... but it was A. Good
move in holding out the triple balls. She only loses $100,000. ...
Heh... only $100,000.
The contract is for $125,004 - the original $65,004 plus $20,000
for each correct answer. It's jet-tubed to Milton before we drop
- #7: $10
- #6: $500,000
- #2: $10
- #5: $500,000
So the Wall this episode is worth $520,095. Will they take the
sure thing of a quarter of that money or go with the value of the
Wall? Milton... RIPS UP THE CONTRACT! They have $520,095!

Holy smokes, did Lisa get paid
yesterday or what? She'll try and keep the momentum going
San Bruno, CA
editor & writer
JEOPARDY! ROUND: Languages of
Europe, Questioning Movie Titles, A Cheesy Category Gun Talk,
Recent History & Biography, Low Tech.
Lisa starts with $200 Recent History & Biography, finding the Daily Double under $1000
Gun Talk. She bets $1200 on this: today meaning a short-lived
success, it refers to a misfire in a flintlock's powder. "What is
a flash in a pan?" RIGHT for $4400! She ends up with $5400 to
$3600 for Daniel. Natasha is on $2800, giving her freedom of the
board to start...
DOUBLE JEOPARDY!: The Young Pope, 1990s Emmys, Diseases Named
After People, "W"ords, Playwrights, High Tex.
.. with $1200 Playwrights, finding the first Daily Double under $1600.
She wagers $3500 on this: the part of a vessel shown or an area of
the strike zone where a battle hits the ball best. She blanks on
the wheelhouse, leaving her with $1700. She can make up for it
with $1600 Diseases Named After People. She bets $2500 on this: in
Wilson's disease, this metallic element collects in tissues & can
be detected by a brownish ring around the cornea. "What is
mercury?" No, it was copper, leaving her with $1200. She ends up
with $2800, but with Lisa on $15,800 to Daniel's $14,000, she can
very well spoil.
FINAL JEOPARDY! in "Europe 1962": Rudolf Abel & this American are
most associated with Germany's Glienicke Bridge on February 10,
1962. Correct response: who was Francis Gary Powers?
Lisa is right to win another $28,001, giving her $62,402 for two!

Host: Andy Cohen
After a brief respite for golf,
friends, we're back at the giant heart stage with ANDY, a
29-year-old video production manager from New York who happens to
share his name with our intrepid host. In addition to being the
most right-swiped person in New Jersey on Tinder, he was offered
People's Sexiest Man Alive. His three, with scores on first
impressions (his score on her/her score on him):
- Meghan: 26-year-old hair stylist from Cinnaminson, NJ who is
about as far from the Jersey Shore as you can get. (3/7)
- Chelsea: 25-year-old marketing coordinator from New York City
who is a self-describe "Irish-Italian meatball" (9/3)
- Madison: 29-year-old attorney from NYC who is a former member of
the US Gymnastics Team (7/7)
That date in the shark tank seemed to do it for MADISON, but the
audience went another way. They went with... CHELSEA. So will Andy
pick the $10,000 OR another date with Madison? He picks... Chelsea
and the $10,000. This is ... not going to end well. But we'll get
to that. Right now, though...
... we meet CHERESE, a 33-year-old HR generalist from San Diego
who likes to date artists, but has an issue with getting them to
commit. Her three, with scores on first impressions (her score on
him/his score on her):
- JP: 32-year-old pharmacist from Los Angeles who's attracted to
three B's - brains, booty, and belief. He likes dating
African-Americans & Latinas (4/9)
- Jeff: 27-year-old entrepreneur from San Diego who is a
self-proclaimed geek who likes gold spelunking (8/10)
- Ricky: 31-year-old marketing specialist from Los Angeles who's
in no hurry to be a "sugar daddy" (10/10)
Cherese picks... RICKY! The audience picks... Somebody else! It
was JEFF. So how do we make this decision even more awkward? We'll
get there, but first, Cherese picks... another date with RICKY!
Ricky, on the other hand, wants something a little more permanent.
He gets down on one knee and proposes! "Yes?!" It isn't $10,000,
but someone just won this show!
FUN FACT: 27 couples on the original "Love Connection" ended up
- Cherese & Ricky are still engaged and getting ready for the next
step - the parents.
- Andy fell for Chelsea, but Chelsea thought bringing a friend to
the resort was a put awkard. She hasn't spoken to Andy or his

Noah Huyler bidding on a DSLR camera. The $1199 camera goes to
Pamela, who can take many pictures of her firepit table with
chairs and a trip to Iceland (6n @ Centerhotel Thingholt) if she
connects the Secret X. Freebie goes top left. She gets one extra
from a $130 cooler/warmer. That goes bottom right. Secret X has to
be in the middle.... it isn't. It's on top.
Pateeser Jackson goes down and up thanks to a $1264 set of small

Pocket Change. The $20,843 car is $1.75 today. He has his initial

take it to Argentina (6n @ Auberge du Vin) if he wins Flip Flop.
