And then, there were donuts. The contestants enter a room with, like, thousands of donuts. Everyone is atwitter from the delicious smell. I have to say that usually donuts don't do it for me, but every once in a while a Bavarian Crème sneaks through and it is indeed heavenly. Does anyone even know what that delicious-tasting stuff inside the donut really is? It's kind of like pudding, but also like something much more delicious than pudding. One of life's great mysteries, I guess.
Sami tells the contestants that she's sure they've all heard the expression "dollars to donuts." What the eff does that mean? Well, no matter, because today the contestants can turn donuts to dollars. Inside one of the donuts is a token worth $5,000. They will look through the donuts in rounds lasting a minute. Everyone wants some money. And, honestly, they want the donuts. Conveniently, if they play they also have to pay: in calories. For each round in which they participate, they'll have to eat a donut. Bryan tells us that the donuts were probably the most tempting of all the temptation challenges so far. Sami tells the contestants that if they abstain at first then decide to play in a later round, they'll have to eat an amount of donuts equal to what the contestants who have played every round have scarfed.
Everyone plays in the first round, some with relish, except for Little Miss Willpower Kae. She says that the donuts are hard to resist, but it's not worth it. She brings up the good point that since she's the smallest person there, 300 calories will make a big impact on her. After eating their donuts, the rest of the pack has to dig through huge piles of donuts with their hands. And this is where I'd be out. I hate being sticky. Watching them do it actually makes me feel slightly ill and like I need to take a shower immediately. For round two, Nicole bails, deciding it's not worth it. Everyone else minus Kae eats the donut then dives back into the donut pile. Bill fakes everyone out by yelling, "Oooh!" then follows up with, "My back!" Sami berates the contestants for not looking carefully enough and missing whole donuts. Amy actually dives in a donut pile. Again, no one finds the token.
For the third round, there will be unlimited time. Julie's out, having met her calorie allowance, and Kae and Nicole resist the temptation as well. The rest of the contestants dig around in the giant sticky smoosh pile as Sami yells such helpful bon mots as, "Leave no donut unturned." And then Bill finds it! He's really pulling in the high-ticket prizes. He says he's going to put the $5,000 into some college funds for his kids. Oh, the poor people who have to clean that donut mess. Say a prayer for them.
