PrankStars Change Celebrity Personalities Instead of Identities
PrankStars second episode had slightly less famous stars in it, but that doesn’t mean there was any less humor on the show. This week’s episode was all about tricking fans into thinking that their favorite stars are weird. Unlike the traditional pranks that use stars as someone else, both pranks let the stars be known as their real selves.
The show starts off with Sakoiya, who is a fan of China Anne McClain. Her mother wants Mitchel to prank her in return for all the pranks that her daughter has played on her. They come up with this fake reality show where they are seeking a new host, but China Anne McClain has to compete with these others kids to see who wins the gig. Sakoiya volunteers to compete with China, but that turned out to be not so good. They make both girls do silly acts to see who does better, but they give China more points for doing less than Sakoiya. Needless to say, this makes Sakoiya mad, and they keep the prank going on for a little longer before taking pity on her. Once the prank ended, you can tell that Sakoiya is happy.
I personally think that this prank was a bit too mean. I felt bad for Sakoiya, since they made China seem not very bright and as if the show was playing favorites. You could tell the poor girl was flabbergasted by this. At least she got to meet her favorite star. I will also add that while they made it clear that China was there, I like the fact that they made her act so different than she really is. That really made it a more interesting than the last time they did not disguise the celebrity. So I say they did a good job with this prank.
Zack was the next victim of sorts. His mother told Mitchel that Zack is one of Adam Hicks’ biggest fans. Of course, as his mother put it that Zack wants to be like Adam. So Mitchel decides to give Zack the chance to be Adam. Zack has to fill in for Adam as his voice for a radio and TV interview. This of course does not work well. Zack cannot understand Adam, since he lost his voice, and when they film the interview Zack talks too fast for Adam. The poor kid makes himself look bad, but they don’t keep the prank for long. During the middle of the “TV interview,” Adam talks, and they tell Zack that it was all a prank.
The poor kid was really nervous, and I certainly felt bad for him. But in the end he at least he got to rap with Adam. I still think that they might have gone overboard with him by making him be the voice of Adam on “TV.” That was a bit too much for a kid, but it sure did bring in the laughs. In the end I suppose it all turned out all right.
I enjoyed this episode more than the first one. I thought the skits were far more fun to watch, and I am hoping that rest of the season will be similar to this week’s episode. I know I can hardly wait to see who are the victims and stars for the third episode. I will also say that I think this show is about equally good as Punk’d, but far more family friendly.
