Episode Summary

EDIT
Episode 101: "Jayson Storm"
AIRED:
Jayson is a 21 year old aspiring actor living in Los Angeles, California. His life was going smoothly until he decided to try his luck for $15,000 dollars. Jayson's new "best friend," Jack, is going to make his life a living hell. Jack first enters Jayson's life when the young, Hollywood wannabe is having lunch with his girlfriend, Michelle, and another female friend. Our man Jack regales the two real friends with extremely embarrassing and (completely made-up) stories about Jayson's youth. Jayson plays along--remember he's got to in order to win the cash--as Jack turns up the gross-out factor. Eventually, Jack gets Jayson to eat a booger off of his finger. Later, when Jayson leaves for the bathroom, Jack tells Michelle that Jayson had multiple threesomes and he is known to be unfaithful. Michelle is understandably shocked to hear such information about her sweet, innocent Jayson. When Jayson returns, Jack quickly grabs him and drives him off in a beat up Volvo. Michelle tries to call Jayson while the two men are driving away, but Jack doesn't allow him to answer the phone. Michelle and her friend are stuck with the bill at the restaurant. Later that night, Jack picks up Jayson at his acting class. Jack pulls into the parking lot driving the Volvo, which is covered in Jayson's headshots and resumes. Jack steps out of the car with a bull horn and begins to hand out candy bars wrapped with Jayson's picture to all of the other actors. Jayson's acting teacher gets really annoyed and threatens to call the police on Jack if they both do not leave. Eventually, Jayson and Jack leave, but on their way out they throw candy bars at the acting teacher. The torment continues at a popular Hollywood restaurant, where Jayson works as a waiter. Jack rolls up to the front door with the head-shot-covered Volvo and calls out to Jayson on the bull horn. Jayson comes out to reluctantly greet Jack, who then commands him to take the bullhorn and announce that he is quitting. The manager of the restaurant doesn't look very amused as Jayson and Jack drive away, throwing candy bars out the window. With thirty two minutes left in the game, Jack really tests Jayson's commitment to the $15,000 dollars. Jack calls up Michelle and tries to make some small talk. Next, Jack hands the phone to Jayson and tells him to say to Michelle: "It's over." Jayson takes the phone and breaks up with his girlfriend. Later, after Jayson has lost his girlfriend, quit his job and pissed off his acting teacher, Jack hands him $15,000 dollars in cash. Suddenly, Jayson's permanent frown has turned into a smile.moreless
