Super Catch 21: Robert doesn't get any 21s with two Power Chips and seven chances, so he settles for $1,000.

The Gong Show: On the judging panel tonight are Steve Schirripa, Andy Dick and Brian Posehn.
Dave comes out with a fake wig on.

Act #1: The VaVa Sisters do an extreme stripping act.

STEVE: 210
BRIAN: 499
ANDY: 329
TOTAL: 1,038

Act #2: Estevan Ramierez decides to let his PECS dance...but they'll be quickly dancing out of here, because Steve gongs him.

Act #3: Tino Ferraro from Vegas does a surfboard act and shortly adds some impressive jump rope moves to the mix. Then, he stands on a series of heavy silver boxes, and Brian is this close to gonging him...but he doesn't.

STEVE: 252
BRIAN: 350
ANDY: 175
TOTAL: 777

Act #4: Colin Campbell plays the bagpipes and rides a unicycle at the same time...Andy and the gong, however, say it's no good.

Act #5: Jake Chris plays the guitar and does a stand-up routine at the same time while a lady is dancing. Steve gonged him a second too late.

STEVE: 150 (5 for the man)
BRIAN: 50
ANDY: 500
TOTAL: 700

Act #6: Mona Lott does a Pat Benetar impersonation with "Hit Me With Your Best Shot". Midway, this person strips to reveal targets on the pecs/boobs and the tits, as well as a sticky suit, and Dave and the judges throw tennis balls at the targets! Unfortunately, the act gets gonged at the last second.

Final Act: Auggie Foss has some fun with the yo-yo.

STEVE: 500
BRIAN: 400
ANDY: 450
TOTAL: 1,350- WIN!

As an added bonus, he got to eat a Subway sub with spokesperson Jared Fogle making an appearence.

The Act We Didn't Have Time For: Dave Juskow as a "human firecracker".
