Game Show In My Head: The first-ever contestant is Shalisse Pekarcik from Salt Lake City (who is a personal trainer and cheerleading coach). While in a certain place, each contestant is given verbal instructions by host Joe Rogan. All tasks have a five-minute time limit unless otherwise indicated. For each task completed, he/she wins $5,000. After the five tasks, they get to attempt an even more difficult task to try and double their money, usually with a ten minute time limit. Completing all the tasks is worth $50,000.

1. Take four different family photos with someone else's family by convincing their wife to do so- group hug, family frolic, funny faces, and a pose involving a kiss from their husband.
RESULT: PASS ($5,000)

2. Get somebody to put face cream on their face and cucumbers on their eyes, not realizing that the face cream is actually ranch dressing; they must then dip a cucumber piece into the dressing and eat it.
RESULT: PASS ($10,000)

3. While at a catwalk, they must pick the one person that will make it to the other side of the street first within five tries. They can't tell that person that it's a race, although they can motivate him/her.

A: NO
B: NO
C: YES- PASS ($15,000)

4. Talk to a couple and convince the husband that he's met her before; she must also get his phone number.
RESULT: FAIL (got phone number, but didn't get the verbal agreement)

5. Get at ten people to stand in line at the bottom of a stairway for three minutes straight.
RESULT: FAIL

THE BIG TASK: While in a wedding dress, she must convince a guy to marry her and have him put on a tuxedo that came from a bathroom. Then, he must say his vows, "I love you" and "I do" before kissing her.
FINAL RESULT: PASS (the man that was involved was Michael Ferraro)

She goes home with $30,000!

The other contestant tonight is Craig Scime from Buffalo, NY (who is an entrepreneur that just got married).

1. Get another guy's phone number and take him to his home immediately.
RESULT: FAIL

2. Using a cameraman and a video camera, they must make two unsuspecting people testify about a fake UFO sighting at Hollywood & Highland and admit they were abducted and probed by the "aliens".
RESULT: PASS ($5,000)

3. Borrow a $5 bill from somebody and quickly stuff it in his own pocket and say "Ta da!", thus making it looked like it disappeared; he must also hang on to the $5 bill afterwards.
RESULT: PASS ($10,000)

4. Using a security wand, get a person to stop what they're doing and take off their shoes and socks for them, without telling them it's for security reasons.

THE BIG TASK: Get one person to stand in for a missing diplomat from an imaginary country by having that person wear the traditional country's garb, then have him/her do a speech about why the country loves America so much and take questions from the press before finishing up by giving a personal gift to America.
FINAL RESULT: PASS (the gift the stranger gave was his watch, and the made-up country was Farballa)

Craig wins $40,000, meaning a $70,000 beginning for this new show!
