But the problem was Dan. He had a super shitty attitude and pretty much made a mockery of the whole thing. These were silly little games, but it was about being a good sport and playing along. Dan certainly didn't exhibit good sportsmanship today. Not a good showing for Coach Dan. Just sayin'.
They clapped for Ian for giving it a go. You know, after the hangover vomiting and all.
The first game was called Super Dragon had them each holding two sets of streamers and trying to unravel them. As you can see Dan didn't do that, using his streamer instead to make a headband.
Then throwing his streamer across the room.
Some of these games are the sort of thing you play at bridal showers, but they would be fun at a little house party too. You know, while you're boozin'. The next game was called Skittle Scurry, and they each had on minute to pick up Skittles using only a straw and move them into another bowl.
Ian went first. Dan made a number of comments, like "Taylor is watching...Do it for Kristin....", etc.
Frank went next, and implemented a pivot step to save time on the transfer. Frank wanted to go last, but Dan insisted on going last. We'll soon see why.
Then Dan picked up the bowl of Skittles and threw it across the room, and was pleased that one Skittle went into the bowl. The girls were all pissed at Dan after that. They didn't want to step on them and get them smashed all over the wood floors.
Then they had to try and skewer pretzels and Froot Loops with a stick, using only their mouths. Frank did a bold move by putting skewered Froot Loops inside of his mouth while continuing to work. By this point Dan wasn't even bothering to participate.
Spicy came over to get the count and had to handle the stick that was in Frank's mouth, saying "she's okay with that" and they all laugh. Spicy is all tarted up today in a sexy black dress, sashaying around Frank Eudy. Go Spicy. Do your thing.
I didn't get a good picture of it, but Chelsea had to come over and sweep the floor while this was all going on. She didn't want the Skittles to ruin the wood floors, and for them to get sticky. She said she was pissed about it, and it was obvious. You can see Eddie the camera guy there and they joked that they could just blame the mess on him.
See the label...@Blame_Eddie. Ha ha ha. Now the guys wear oven mitts and have to pop balloons with only their hands. Dan decides to grace the group with his participation on this one. Maybe he realized he was being a royal pain in the ass. Frank popped his balloon immediately and Dan mentioned the advantage of having a wrestler father.
Dan protests about them cheering for Frank, but he's got to be kidding, right? Frank participated in every silly little game and went for it every time. He was a good sport and if there were three Dans up there today, the entire taping would have been a total waste of time.
Then they did a challenge regarding who could blow the biggest bubble. They all stuffed gum in their mouths but Ian had to spit it out, saying it tasted nasty. Frank blew a tiny bubble and he was pronounced the winner. All Dan did is load up with gum.
The last challenge involved them using Oreo-like cookies that they placed on their foreheads and tried to get them to touch their mouths, using only their heads and facial muscles. Frank clarified that they didn't have to eat them---they just had to touch their mouth. Dan just sat there and ate a few cookies, and then berated the crew for not buying actual Oreos...these were a generic cookie.
Ian and Frank really got into it, and the competition got fast and fierce but I think Frank won the point on this game.
No surprise that Frank won the crown today, taking the event. Ian did as good as he could, under the circumstances. And Dan...he was a total asshole.
Frank jokes about going to get bloody mary's with Ian and Ian just groans. Frank says that Ian is ready for a "good siesta" and Ian agrees. They all wave good bye.
***SUGGESTION TO THE CREW*** It might have been fun instead to film them walking around in public, like at the Pike Market, to see who recognizes them and how that goes. I don't know the cost or logistics of a remote shoot like that, but it might be an easier way to fill time and get some value of out of assholes like Dan, who don't want to play. The dynamics of the group are kind of funny---big tall goofy Frank, and small intense sour Ian working the crowd. Add in Dan the Attention Hungry Blowhard and you've got a real winner there, I think.
This would probably not be advisable with Shane and Danielle, however. Hell to the no. Try to keep the crowd away from them.
