'Don't' Episode 3: Two teen boys bring their divorced parents to the show to try and win $100,000
Things are about to get wackier on the ABC show 'Don't'. In the upcoming episode, two brothers bring their divorced parents together again and try to win a series of crazy challenges. Hosted by Adam Scott, the show features snarky commentary by Ryan Reynolds, who makes his presence felt on the show, even if we can't see him.
The official synopsis for the episode is titled 'Don't Parent Trap On National Television', reads, "Brothers Javier and Jabriel McIntosh from Atlanta, Georgia, bring their divorced parents, Angela and Eric, together again and attempt to win $100,000 by competing in challenges – “Don’t Turn the Car Around,” “Don’t Play Ball in the House,” “Don’t Beat Yourself Up,” Don’t Be Shocked” and “Don’t Look Back."
It has been just three episodes, but we've gotten to see the strangest things that people have done for money. In the first episode, one of the family members had to stand in front of tires while the rest have to answer questions. If they get it right, the tires would roll down and avoid hitting the person in the face. If they don't, well, the tire would knock the person down. Another challenge saw the contestant walking on a treadmill while Scott kept handing him chilies, including jalapenos and finally wasabi. The participant was not allowed to drink water until the challenge was completed. There was also a 'Don't Blink' challenge, which they all failed.
In the second episode, one family member had to hang upside down, while his family threw balls at him. If he caught them, they would earn money. If the balls destroyed anything in the house, they would lose money. Another challenge saw them running into signboards. Scott asks the family a question with a multiple choice. In front of the family, there are four STOP signs, which have option A, B, C written in front of them. One of them gives an answer and then they have to run through the corresponding signpost called 'STOP'. If they are able to run through it, then their answer is correct. If not, they're wrong.
Well, wacky is as wacky does. Tune into your dose of fun and laughter on ABC, Thursdays at 9 pm.
