The RVs arrive in Branson. Amie is thrilled to finally get a chance to see Branson. Amie also loves George W. Bush. The families arrive at their dressing rooms and have to get make-up, props, and a wardrobe for their routines. The Favereys throw a bunch of wings on, which Dylan isn't thrilled about at all even though he gets the best wig of all: a green mullet. "Everybody looks fantastic," Reno greets the families with a creepy chuckle. He then informs them that they'll be performing in front of "several hundred" people. It's the same crowd of people you'd see at a "Nunsensations" show. The entire front row, regardless of age and gender (I'd say race too, but we all know these people are white and whiter), are wearing trucker hats. Reno greets the crowd and introduces the judges. Grading the families on showmanship will be Andy Williams. Grading them on originality is Yakov Smirnoff. God, Yakov Smirnoff. Remember how much he made Night Court suck with his guest appearances? Hilariously, Anslie admits that she has no idea who Yakov Smirnoff is. And finally, judging family participation is some lady who isn't famous at all but is the mayor of Branson. What's up with the mayors being so important on this show? Like last week, when hanging out with the mayor was supposed to be a prize. Weird.
The DiSalvatores go first. Silvio is still wearing his pajama pants from the morning, which is weird. The only one wearing any kind of costume is Mason, who is dressed up as a clown and hates his life right now. The family begins. Silvio is so into this and even plugs NBC like three times for brownie points. He raps and then it's Amy's turn. All she has to do is say her name to the "Name Game" song that everyone knows, but she totally screws up and forgets everything and ends up saying "my name is Amy. Oh, that's my name! Amy from New York." She totally did that on purpose. She claims that she forgot her lines, but I think she just didn't want to say what Silvio wrote for her and this was her passive-aggressive way of getting out of it. Blake gets some feedback on the mic when he raps but keeps going and then Mason delivers the punchline: he's the only normal person there. And he's dressed in a clown suit. Crickets. Andy Williams weighs in that the enthusiasm was there. Yakov feels sorry for the "normal" kid. The mayor thinks Silvio's personality overshadowed everyone else.
