‘The Misery Index’: “How Did It Get In There” Recap
This past week on The Misery Index, two more contestants joined Jameela and the Impractical Jokers to win some money. “How Did It Get There” featured Christian and Brittany. Christian’s embarrassing moment was being pantsed on stage. Brittany’s embarrassing moment is walking into a glass door while trying to impress a guy and knocking herself out. Q and Murr are paired with Christian. Sal and Joe with Brittany.
The experts choose two scenarios and each contestant is given a different factoid they must rate above, in the middle or higher than the scenarios given. The first moment is being sprayed by a skunk at 37 or having wet dreams of your dad at 54. Brittany is shown a young couple. They are on a cliff and the girlfriend is afraid to jump off. Her boyfriend pushes her off. She screams “I’m breaking up with you”. It rates at 59 on the scale and wins $500.
For his turn, Christian is shown a drunk man who places an eel in his rectum and must go to the emergency room to have it surgically removed. It’s 70 so he wins $500 as well.
Christian must choose which is worse a 20-year-old whose father tried to circumcise him or a teen whose father tries to kill him with a chainsaw. He chose circumcision. It ranked 78. The chainsaw was 83.
Next up, Brittany must choose between Cardi B’s leaking butt injections or being treated by an 18-year-old fake doctor. She chooses Cardi B that is ranked 64. The doctor was 71. Neither won this round. A clip of Murr’s allergic stripper punishment from Impractical Jokers is shown. Christian ranks it at 48. Brittany gives it a 56. It’s really 52. They end up with a tie. To eliminate a contestant another round is played. A pimp dies before an election and is elected anyway. Christian chooses 43, while Brittany picks 46. It’s actually 57 so Brittany wins.
The Big Prize Chance
Brittany wants to win the $30,000 grand prize so she and her children can travel to Dubai. Sal is her partner. For $5,000, a traffic jam in China lasted for 11 days. She chooses 27 to 57 it was 79. She loses this round. For $10,000, a man wrecks his car into a business while trying to time travel. She picks 28 to 48 it is 51. She loses again. For the final chance of $15,000, a woman catches her husband cheating. She cuts his penis off with scissors. He is taken to the hospital and its reattached. She sneaks in cuts it off a second time throws it out the window where a animal eats it. She picks 88 to 98. It ranks at 92. She wins $17,500.
