1 When two complete strangers each agree to take on a one-day gig - You're going to be a security guard.
- I am dying to get a new assistant.
it's business as usual until their paths collide, and these temporary assignments turn into all-out supernatural surprises.
- My God! - No! It's the most elaborate hidden camera prank show ever devised.
What the hell? Double the stakes What is that? and double the scares.
And, there's only one person with his finger on the button when you least expect it.
Alright, let's cue another scare.
This is where fear meets funny.
You're on my prank show, Prank Encounters.
- Did you know? - No! This is Prank Encounters.
Alright, guys.
Who's ready to party? Pretty nice place, right? This is a very special Prank Encounters starring yours truly.
Today, we've made up a story about Stacey, a little girl who's about to turn eight years old and, wouldn't you know it, Stacey is a big fan of mine.
So, when I got her letter begging me to be the guest of honor at the party being held at her house, I, of course, said yes.
However, the family's gardener, Julian, was going to warn me not to come.
But, Stacey's not-so-stable dad, Jerry Well, he made sure that didn't happen.
The good news is: none of this is real.
The bad news: we won't be telling that to these two, who have the important task of making sure Stacey's party goes off without a hitch.
Good luck with that.
Ashanti believes she's taking on a one-day gig to help out a party planning company.
She'll be helping out planner Becky, being played by Mary, to ensure that every detail of Stacey's celebration is up to Jerry's insanely high standards.
Meanwhile, across town, Kelsey's been in touch with my fast-talking manager, Eddie.
She's agreed to be my personal assistant for the day and to tag along to the party.
Ashanti and Kelsey have never met, but their paths are about to collide at the most terrifying kid's birthday party ever.
Everyone they're about to meet today are actors, and it's all being caught on hidden camera.
