Two men risk their wives on Ellen DeGeneres's 'Game of Games'

Last Night Now

Ellen Degeneres's new game show, called Ellen's Game of Games, premiered Tuesday night on NBC with two brave men who risked their wives while playing a game called "You Bet Your Wife."

The game is simple. "Here, two husbands bet against each other on how smart they think their wives are," explained Degeneres. "The catch? There is no catch. Three strikes and their wives fall all the way down." The men's wives were casually hoisted above giant pools of lemon meringue pie. NBD.

One couple, Jesse and Katrina, totally slayed the game. Unfortunately for Jevin's wife, she was unable to name more than one Taylor Swift song, which ultimately sent her face first into lemon meringue. Surprisingly, she wasn't even sour about it.

In the end, it was a good thing Jesse put so much faith in Katrina, because she made it to the final round, called "Hot Hands." When Ellen asked Katrina what she and Jesse would do with the money, if they won, Katrina explained that they would spend the money on a really great honeymoon and a downpayment on a house, where they will start a family. So, it made it that much sweeter when Katrina breezed through the images of "Hollywood Hunks," naming 10 celebrities in just 18 seconds, and took home the $100,000 prize.
