'Celebrity Show-Off': Adam enters semi-final after getting saved by celebs for his drunk horse-buying video
TBS's 'Celebrity Show-Off' is just two weeks away from the finale where a participating celebrity will take away the winning title and the championship belt. Up to this week, the celebrities that are a part of the show are Jason Mraz, Tori Spelling, Kevin Smith, Gabi Butler, and Adam Rippon who just joined the show last week after NeNe Leakes' elimination. The show requires celebrities to create engaging shorts for TBS's YouTube channel. Every week a new episode by all celebrities is uploaded to the channel and based on the engagement that each video drives, one top, and two bottom celebrities are announced.
The fate of the celebrities at the bottom then lies with the safe ones who vote to save one and send home the another. This week, Gabi, who joined the show two weeks ago, and Rippon were in the bottom and with two votes against one, the latter is the one who continues to be on the show for at least another week. For his first video, Rippon created a show titled 'Welcome to the Neighborhood: A Tiny Problem'. In this hilarious video, a confused Rippon displayed the cons of making decisions while being too drunk to function as he accidentally adopted a horse instead of a dog."
Rippon's video brought in a lot of laughter and was well-received by the fellow celeb participants but it didn't manage to gain enough engagement on the network's YouTube channel. Butler's Hibachi Grill cooking with a cheerleading twist also didn't pass off as engaging to the audiences. It was now up to Tori Spelling (who also ranked number one this week), Kevin Smith (whose 'Son in Lockdown' series is loved by all), and Jason Mraz (whose antics with his avocados on 'mranch' is loved by the audiences) to save one celebrity who they'd like for to stay in the competition. Before they could vote, Gabi and Rippon were given a chance to make a pitch so that they could be saved.
"The reason you guys should keep me because next week's episode I am making fun of all of you and that's not something you should miss," said Gabi. This was startling to Mraz who quipped that it was not a really nice pitch. He went ahead to vote against her saying that he would "have to raise a leg on this one and say goodbye to Gabi" as her video had a lot of health violations as she cooked using her feet. Tori too voted against Gabi as the Hibachi grill in the latter's video had triggered her PTSD that she developed after being severely hurt by the cooking plate years ago.
Butler couldn't move to the semi-final episode next week however, she did win some money for her choice of charity, Feeding America. "Hunger is obviously a huge issue in America and since I've been a young girl have wanted to solve hunger so I chose this charity," said Butler about the organization before she bowed out.
'Celebrity Show-Off' airs Tuesday nights at 10 pm ET only on TBS.
