Like I said last week, Episode 500 will be delayed a bit, but while we wait we'll be publishing the long-delayed You Bet Your Ass, our game show we filmed in front of a live studio audience. A couple of clips from the show have made it to publication (Episodes 107 and 108) but as you can tell from the low episode numbers, I've been sitting on this footage for a loooon time. Almost seven years, in fact: the show took place on February 22, 2009. I'd met Johnny and Kat, the emcees, barely a month earlier while shooting Bush's Last Day, so it's actually kind of impressive that we were able to put together this whole thing so quickly.
So why the long delay? Well, one disadvantage of arranging a big, complex shoot quickly is that there's less time available to vet the players. And I was horrified to find that one of the males had a really, really offensive tattoo, and I'm not easily offended. This was a symbol of hate, and while the dude in question assured me that he no longer subscribes to that ideology, it still made me feel sick to my stomach, and I sat on the footage rather than publish it. But I've gotten a lot of pleas for its publication over the years, and I think it's finally time.
Four girls were the contestants, and they brought their boyfriends, who participated in some of the games and forfeits. The players included slinky Katherine and pudgy Kitty, who've never appeared at LostBets.com. There's Daisy, who's made three appearances, in Episodes 087, 138, and 140. And then there's Zayda, veteran of nearly two dozen episodes, fan favorite, and another girl I've gotten tons of requests to see more of. Well, here she is.
We're going to be publishing a total of four games (six were played, two have already been published.) First up will be Episode YBYA1, published next week.
The game was Hi-Lo Trivia, which is a cool game that we need to use more often. The four girls were divided into two teams of two: redheads versus brunettes. The winning team's boyfriends get to come onstage and give the losing girls a good groping, in front of their boyfriends and the audience.
The boyfriends of the losers get a chance to take their revenge, though, in YBYA2. While their girlfriends have to stay naked (again, in front of everybody in the audience) their boys take on the winning girls from YBYA1 in a game of Beer Pong. The losers get leaned up against the wall and paddled hard by the winners. No promo for that one yet. It'd spoil YBYA1, since the losers of that one are standing stark naked and exposed throughout. I'll publish the promo for YBYA2 next week, after YBYA1 is published.
But here's a promo for YBYA3.
It's a free-for-all game of Strip Basketball, to two losers. As if being fondled and paddled for a gleeful audience wasn't humiliating enough, the losers of this one must sit on a couch and masturbate themselves with toys. I can think of few things more mortifying to have to do in front of a cheering crowd.
The promo for YBYA4 will be published next week along with the promo for YBYA2. (Technically, YBYA4 was the pie-eating contest published as Episode 108, and YBYA5 and YBYA7 were part of Episode 107. Rather than cause confusion with skipped numbers, I'm just renumbering the unpublished ones.) But those who've been paying attention have an inking of what it involves. Suffice to say that it gets way raunchier than even forced masturbation.
