The guys teach music classes and participate in a focus group. Murr and Q ask the questions, while Joe and Sal go undercover as group members and provide them with embarrassing answers that Murr and Q wrote, to see if they can get through the whole survey without refusing to say an answer.


Face the Music

Goal: Get the student to sign up for another lesson.
Loser: Joe

This was a Double-Down Challenge, meaning that you get two losses if you lose this challenge. The jokers were teaching music classes with an instrument and tried to get someone to sign up for their class. There was also a humiliating song on the boombox that must be played.

Hocus Focus

Goal: Read all the answers written for you by the moderator.
Loser: Q and Murr

One joker would ask questions and the other joker would have to answer them. If the answerer answers all the questions, the asker loses. If the answerer doesn't answer all, the asker wins. Q and Murr were askers and Joe and Sal were answerers. The answerers both won.


Loser: Joe
Punishment: Joe performed at The Borgata as an escape artist. He had no idea what to do and was placed in a water tank while in a straitjacket, steel chains and rope around his legs. He was attempting to get out, but was obviously failing and people left. He didn't get out and was embarrassed.
