Open Caption: Total Blackout Turns Out the Lights to Turn On the Frights

So I don't know if you actually caught any of last night's The L.A. Complex premiere, but Nick's jokes really ARE terrible! That poor guy is better off fixing cars for forlorn actresses, if you know what I mean. But I love that some of you toyed with that notion in your caption suggestions. Way to play it! I also thought it was funny that he looks a little bit like a young Nick Kroll and his name is "Nick." Anyway, here are your winners from yesterday's contest:


From Mate:

Nick: "This is totally how porn careers start."


From FringeFanatic:

Nick: "Canadian?"
Abby: "How can you tell?"
Nick: "Your eyes aren't yet haunted by the soul-sucking vacuum that is L.A. ... That and your Ontario plates."


From Taccado:

Nick: "Seems like the body needs a little bit of work."
Abby: "Yeah, the car is a little banged up."
Nick: "I wasn't talking about the car..."



Today's Image: Total Blackout

Imagine what Fear Factor would be like in the dark and you've basically got SyFy's new show, Total Blackout. I, personally, get nothing out of watching other people squirm (it's so boring and unnecessary!), so I definitely won't be watching, but if you like Jaleel White, you might consider it—because he's hosting this thing! Go Urkel! Go, go, go Urkel! In the still below, a fearful woman dips her hand into what appears to be a box full of cockroaches. I bet she wished she was touching that pineapple to her right, instead. Also, what's with the bodyguard in the back? Post your best caption ideas in the comments!

Check out all of our recent winners on TV.com's Open Caption Pinterest Board.

Guard: Commander Urkle, the subject is staying away from the fruit. I repeat, she is stauing away from the fruit. Duh!

I was going to congratulate FF for thinking like me, but now instead we get to fight to the death... through trivia! I'm down. ;-)



I doubt FF will be too upset, he and I both got one of our captions chosen for this contest (his chosen one was not Psych-related, but mainly a statement of fact).

A new reality TV show from SyFy was warmly welcomed when it was revealed the show is filmed in complete darkness. However, joy turned to anger when by the audience heard about the existence of night vision cameras.

When the contestant was asked later, "What was the most disgusting thing about touching that?", the cockroaches responded, "She was as sweaty as she was obese."

(This is kind of mean, but...)

Bodyguard(?) in the back with arms folded thinking to himself: 'From the looks of her I'll bet she'd be more terrified if she reached in and pulled out the pineapple...'
