The 10 Best Celebrity Game Show Freak-Outs
NBC is trying to bring a little '70s game show flair into the modern era with "Hollywood Game Night," where celebrities and regular folk play party games for cash. The premiere features Jane Lynch hosting a third of the "Friends" and stars from "Buffy," "Lost," and "Veronica Mars" with Martin Short as Charles Nelson Reilly.
Of course, this could be a recipe for disaster. When a non-celebrity walks by somebody famous, their first instinct is to jump up and down and scream. What you may not know is celebrities feel the same way. So they go to the only socially acceptable place to freak out: a game show. So putting all those people together on a game show? This could be the most epic of all meltdowns.
Of course, Kristen Bell is far from the first celeb to lose it on camera...
Neil Patrick Harris is one cool customer. But even the unflappable Barney Stinson will lose it a little under the pressure cooker that is "The Price Is Right".
It may be a while before Paula Deen is invited back on a game show. So you'll have to be satisfied with watching this picture of her spreading her wings, imitating Batman or perhaps Dracula, or possibly even Steve Carell from "Despicable Me."
It is a well-known fact among anthropologists that genteel Southern women will balloon up to twice their normal size when they feel threatened or are asked questions about feminine hygiene on national television.
