  The rest of season 2 is online for the summer...
Justin Long
"Skylanders Academy"

Nikki Glaser
"Not Safe with Nikki Glaser"

Kal Penn
Arielle Kebbel
"Midnight, Texas"

We're running out the rest of season 2 before season 3 bows Sundays this fall. Quick reminder that the panelist that holds the most incorrect votes at the end of the hour will have to tweet out a lie of Anthony's choosing, and for 24 hours, they will not be able to deny it.

GAME 1: DOGGY DESIGNER TO THE STARS. They first learned to sew as a child, and after graduating from fashion school and teaching, they've turned their talents to dogs. This challenger is the first person to present dog fashions at New York's Fashion Week.
- #1: Kal
- #2: Justin
- #3: Nikki, Arielle (wanted to change it to 1 because, "White House over here is smart!")
CORRECT: #2, Anthony Rubio. #1 is Pol' Atteu, a couture designer in Beverly Hills. #3, Shira Scott Astrof runs an animal rescue in LA.

GAME 2: DAILY AFFIRMATION JESSICA: In 2009, our challenger was the star of THIS video.

- #1: Arielle
- #2: Nikki, Kal, Justin
- #3:
CORRECT: #1. #2 is Delaney McNulty, Jessica's BFF. #3 is Belle Adams, who's been seen on YouTube 23 times.

Arielle & Justin have 1 correct judgment a piece.

GAME 3: DANIEL BURTON. He is the only person in the world to bike to the South Pole.
- #1:
- #2: Kal, Justin, Arielle
- #3: Nikki

But BEFORE YOU GO, each of the imposters from Game 2 has an ADDITIONAL secret that the panel must discern. One of them is a real-life former double agent who helped the FBI catch a Russian spy.
- #1: Kal, Justin, Arielle
- #2: Nikki
CORRECT: #1, Naveed Jamali, writer of "How to Catch a Russian Spy" and a Naval Reserve officer. #2 is Troy Caylak who worked at a brewery in LA.

Going into the final game, Arielle and Justin have 3, Kal has 2, and Nikki is in the danger zone with zero. Final game score is doubled.

GAME 4: TODD SAMS. He is a dancer and Usher's choreographer, winning several
awards for his work.
- #1: Justin, Nikki, Kal, Arielle (so whatever happens, Nikki's going tweeting)
- #2:
- #3:
CORRECT: #1! #2 is Garland Spencer from "You Got Served". #3 is Clinton Shannon Shales, who's the Detroit Pistons' dancing usher.

TWEET A LIE: Because Nikki has 2, she MUST post this on her Twitter and she cannot delete or otherwise deny it for 24 hours:
- @NikkiGlaser: Being a comedian is all well and good, but what I'd like to be is a Kardashian.

Kenny G
Jenny Zigrino
"JZ's New Album" out on Stand-Up Record
Ron Lynch
"The Tomorrow Show"

While you were wondering what Kenny G is doing here (C-Note: okay, just me), we were admiring the Queen's speech. Tonight's #HashtagWars: because millennials are not eating out as they used to, #MillennialFood. Jenny has 1000 to Kenny's 700 and Ron's 600.

In act 2, we have Chips & Dip (songs about chips and/or dip) and tonight's Live Challenge, Optimus Subprime, sponsored by "Transformers: The Last Knight", in theatres now. Given a less-impressive automobile, give us what they would say as a Transformer. Jenny gets 1000 from "Autobots, Transform and lube up!"

It's the International Day of Yoga, so we have Yoga Fire. Ron assumes Downward Facing Loser.

FTW: come up with a line using Kenny's sax as a backdrop. The winner: "Baby, I hope you got your EBT card, because I'm about to eat. Booty. Tonight." And ... YES, it was Jenny!

Another set of comics clown on the news tomorrow. Continue the game online @midnight.

Joey Fatone & his daughter Kloey
playing for Autism Speaks (
Phaedra Parks & her son Ayden
"The Real Housewives of Atlanta"
playing for Phaedra Foundation (
Greg Jennings & his daughter Alea
Super Bowl champion
playing for the Greg Jennings Foundation (

We're guessing this episode falls prey to "Early Installment Weirdness", as round 1's questions are played on the board and the teams are called in from backstage instead of being sat at their couches.

WHAT WERE YOU THINKING?!: Each team is asked two questions that was posed to the kids. Each match is worth 15 points (C-Note: early installment weirdness)
- Phaedra & Ayden are the only ones with points, 15 of'em.

PUSH MY BUTTONS: Each team gets one question that has three possible answers that will be represented by three pictures. Each match is worth 25 (C-Note: early installment weirdness).
- Phaedra/Ayden: who is mom's celebrity crush: Jimmy Kimmel, Mike Epps, or Stephen Moyer? Apparently she loves her some Jimmy Kimmel! They're up to 40.
- Greg/Alea: which instrument does dad play the best: bass guitar, drums, or cornet? They match up on drums for 25 (although there is a cornet on stage... and Cat plays it)
- Joey/Kloey: what does dad do that you wish you could: drive, play with his toys, or lift heavy things? Drive is a match for 25.

TATTLE TALES: While the kids are away, the adults get extra personal. Each question is worth 40.
- Phaedra & Ayden are at 80. The guys are still on 25 a piece.

WHAT DO YOU MEME?: The big stars will have to get their little stars to say a set of words and images within 45 seconds. They can't say the word or the red no-no words. Each one is worth 30 points.
- Joey/Kloey lead off with chicken dance, ice cream, and gorilla for 90, 115 total. He said "super" for "superheroes".
- Phaedra/Ayden get Bermuda triangle, lion, said "high school" for cheerleader, and run out of time on "traffic signal" for 60, 140 total.
- Greg/Alea get golf, cake, teddy bear, and ninja for the full 120, 145 total.

SUPER SKETCHY: A drawing will be the answer to a question. Value starts at 250 and decreases as the time goes down. You have five (C-Note: early installment weirdness) chances to guess and three seconds per guess.
- Joey/Kloey: What does dad do that drives you crazy? "You make Roscoe lick me" somehow escapes him.
- Greg/Alea: what family challenge does Alea always win? Greg gets a headstand for 146 more, 291 total.
- Phaedra/Ayden need 152 to win. Their question: how is mom handy around the house? She says "cleaning poop out of the toilet" for 156 and the win with 296!

But no one's a loser on this show, because both runners-up will take away $5000 for their charities.

Cutthroat Kitchen

Host: Alton Brown
Official WebsiteFacebook
  Tonight in Hell's Other Kitchen, Alton welcomes Lakeisha (high school executive chef), James (Oklahoma City executive chef), Kelsey (Rockland, ME line cook), and Ben (Cleveland farmer & chef/owner). Today's guest judge: Simon Majumdar.

ROUND 1: WAFFLE BREAKFAST SANDWICH. Ben pays $15,100 to have Kelsey and James both work at an egg-table prep station, James pays $7100 to have Kelsey do everything backwards (cook waffles in your pan, cook everything else in your waffle maker), and Lakeisha forks over $7700 to have Ben choose one of two ingredients that Waffle Bob was holding onto to replace the ingredients they shopped for earlier. Money well spent? For Ben, maybe, because James is outta here.

Meanwhile, Kelsey still has $25,000, Ben has $9900, and Lakeisha still is on $17,300.

ROUND 2: KOREAN BARBECUE. Kelsey pays $10,000 to have everyone else work from a crowded table, where they couldn't touch any of the spoons, Lakeisha retaliates by spending $8500 on American side dishes that Kelsey had to use. Kelsey buys $500 worth of a rhythmic gymnastic ribbon that Ben had to use for the rest of the round.... which really throws off his rhythm, because he's gone next.

Going into the final round, Kelsey has $14,500 to Lakeisha's $8800.

ROUND 3: GELATO & PIZZELLE. Lakeisha spent all but $600 to have Kelsey use only the tools attached to Alton's statue, while Kelsey spent a comparative pittance - $700 - to have Lakeisha source her ingredients from pizzas.

So who gets the W in this week's episode? ... Interestingly enough, they BOTH DO! Kelsey wins $13,800, and Lakeisha takes away $600.

Ryan goes with suns to pad the lead with $980 to $350. For $2500: Who was born first? Gerald went with Confucius, while Todd went with babysitter. Gerald... is right to win, $2340 to $980.

  Last week, we had America's Grocery Bag as a Mystery Box.... and three of them had to cook out of them TWICE. Mark Togni failed to make the cut, so we're down to 19 as we head to Huntington Beach.

ROUND 1 TEAM CHALLENGE: In two teams of 9, the cooks will have to prepare dishes of either rockfish or striped sea bass. Rockfish is easy to mess up, while sea bass is temperamental that demands absolute attention. Dishes must have the protein, two sides, and a sauce. You have 60 minutes to prep and plate for 101 lifeguards who will vote for their favorite. Losing team heads to a Pressure Test.

Brien, as winner of the last Mystery Box, gets to choose which team he will lead AND his protein.

RED (CAPTAIN: Brien): Adam, Cate, Eboni, Heather, Jason, Necco, Newton, Sam, Yachecia - Sea Bass
- Crispy Skin Sea Ball with Bamboo Rice, Eggplant, Corn Dalad and Sweet Chili Sauce
BLUE (CAPTAIN: Jennifer): Caitlin, Daniel, Dino, Gabriel, Jeff, Jenny, Paige, Reba - Rockfish
- Cajun Rockfish with Broccoli Rabe, Green Beans, Potato & Beurre Blanc

WINNER: by an almost 2 to 1 margin, the RED TEAM!

Back at the MasterChef kitchen, the judges exempt Jeff (Gordon), Daniel (Aaron) & Reba (Christina) from...

ROUND 1 PRESSURE TEST: Aaron's pork chop dish with grilled nopales picadillo and prickly pear sauce. Pay attention, because you will have to recreate it in 45 minutes.
- BOTTOM TWO: Jennifer Williams, Paige Jimenez
- ELIMINATED: Paige Jimenez.
