Have you seen hideousness?
It's called Hole In The Wall and it's on Fox. If you watched any football over the past few weeks, then surely you caught the previews for it. Well, two nights ago, Jeremy and I accidentally watched this train wreck. And when I say accidentally, I mean, we saw that it was coming up next after football, we both looked at each other excitedly and said, "Are you thinking what I'm thinking?"
It turns out Jeremy wasn't thinking what I was thinking which made it all that more awkward when I had to put all my clothes back on. He was under the impression that we'd be watching Hole In The Wall. And I'm glad we did.
I don't think I can accurately describe the 30 minutes that we spent viewing this spectacle of a show. Jeremy and I sat there, fully clothed, in stunned silence watching six adults in silver space suits and helmets jump up and down and make complete asshats of themselves. It was amazing.
If you aren't familiar with the concepts of this game show, let me walk you through it. There's a giant wall. There's a hole in that wall. You must jump through the hole. If you miss, you fall into what, as best as I can tell, is a giant vat of lemon-lime Gatorade. And let me just tell you, (spoiler alert), they ALL fall into the Gatorade.
But if you take away only one thing from this post, let it be this. Throughout the entire game, in the moments just before the wall with the hole starts moving closer to the contestant, the announcer says in the most serious and dramatic voice he can muster, "Get ready for the HOLE!" This had me and Jeremy in stitches all night. I mean, where would you EVER hear that phrase? Well, other than at the end of a really, really good blind date.
