This episode is titled “Battle of Champions,” but the twist is that two celebrities are returning champions, not the contestants. One of whom is very annoying. The losing civilian may receive something frightening: a Celebrity Fusion portrait. Okay, emcee Jane Lynch’s being tongue-in-cheek, but that prize is freakier than a Zonk.
Also, celeb bookers were thisss close to arranging a Zack/Kelly Saved By The Bell quasi-reunion as Mark-Paul Gosselaar sits on one of the couches next week. Oh, well.
Onto the recap!
- Kadi Prescott from Chino, CA is a marketing analyst and (sigh) Twilight fan.
- Gary Dell’Abate – bigger Parks & Recreation sensation than Amy Poehler.
- Tiffani Thiessen – isn’t wearing a white collar.
- Anthony Anderson – cringe-inducing returning champion.
- Jennifer Brady is a college grad from Highland Ranch, CO and Harry Potter fan (whew).
- Adam Scott – ready to party down.
- Pete Wentz – part time pizza aficionado.
- Yvette Nicole Brown – she’s the other returning champ. That’s nice.
