As the mini family reunions go on and B/M pumps in the crowd noise to mask the fact that the audience got bored three minutes ago, the Graphic of Stupid says, "Parent Trap," and MayorSteve tells the kids that the "game show" is called the Parent Trap. Road Rules is a Stee Trap. Floaty Theo says something about an atomic bomb and that he and his mom are like "a couple of ducks caught in the headlights." Where does Theo drive where there are ducks all over the road? No, seriously where does he drive? I want to make sure I never take my car anywhere near that city. Manipulative editing makes Theo and his mom look more uncomfortable than they are. MayorSteve introduces the parents. Oh man! When introduced, Holly and her mother go twin Scaryteeth. A big ol' Scaryteeth duet. Too much. Must fast-forward. Damn, Laterrian's mom looks like she's about twenty-eight. She's actually kinda hot. Holly looks like she has more miles under her hood than MamaLaterrian. Mayor Steve exiles the kids to his "sound-proof dungeon" while he talks to the parents. Dungeon? I think MayorSteve just Freudian-slipped out a little too much information about his off-air personal life. The crowd "ooohs" (read: B/M sound-editors) as MayorSteve tells the kids that their parents will be asked some questions and then they'll be asked the same questions and whoever dude, it's the fucking Newlywed Game. We get it. Floaty Msaada is once again relegated to doing to the exposition, explaining something about each question they get right being worth a "star" (no Cheek Stars of death, I hope) with a possible twelve stars -- however, she looks totally confused, like she's reading cards and doesn't really understand. And indeed, what is not explained (and never becomes any clearer) is whether or not they are working as a team, and why only twelve points when all counted there are like thirty-six answers between the six teams and blah blah blah. Who cares? They do stupid shit. They do it well, they get paid. Next.
