This week's challenge was all about risks. It seemed to us that everyone really committed to taking that beyond just the song lyrics, whether it was Johnny "Bettin' His Life" on reggae or Jewel getting just a wee bit risqué with her outfit. But who knew the biggest risk of all would be Jackie trying to do a country accent.
No. 1 Most Effective Way to Busk
Be loud. Jackie turned her gift for gab into a Hook Challenge win by seemingly just drowning out all the other performers to get the majority of the crowd's attention (and dollars). Scotty could hear her all the way from his part of the pier and had to acknowledge the brilliance of her busking abilities. Alas, her luck did not hold out...
No. 1 Most Predictable Song Choice
As soon as the Hook Challenge was revealed, we knew someone would title their song "Risky Business." We were then proved correct within about ten seconds thanks to Nick. And while it's not a bad song title, his strategy to insult the people walking by and demand money from them seemed questionable (and indeed did not pay off).
