    Dave tricks teenage Oscar® winner Anna Paquin into getting in a magician's box, claiming he was going to show her a trick. Once he had her locked in, he takes off her shoes and tickles her feet. Also, Dave challenges Millionaire Basketball Winner Tom Gates: if he makes his shot onstage, Dave will give him $10,000; if he doesn't, he has to host the show. He misses. So does a decidedly un-athletic Mary Tyler Moore. But Paquin hits, and Dave gives her the ten grand.moreless
