Dave Kaplan was featured prominently on Wednesday’s episode of TUF, being the recipient of Sum Yung Guy flavored sushi and an ass-kicking from the dude who fainted during episode 1. But did you know this wasn’t Kaplan’s big show business debut? Nor was it his most embarrassing TV moment. Jackal Shrute Boxe discovered that Dave was also a contestant on The Singing Bee, a short lived NBC gameshow:
Combining karaoke singing with a spelling bee-style competition, this show features contestants trying to remember the lyrics to popular songs. In each episode, six contestants (four contestants in season two) will be selected from the audience to play a series of games that test their knowledge of song lyrics. If a contestant makes an error, he or she will forfeit her chance to get into the “musical chairs”. If a contestant is not in a musical chair when the round is over, he or she is eliminated.
The show is just as painful as you would imagine, and I don’t really expect any of you to get through part one let alone start part two, but if you’re really into it, the second part is after the jump.
Oh and some extra Dave Kaplan douchery right here, where he claims he never ate no jizz, describes himself as ‘super super smart’ and basically comes off like President of the United States of Lameness.
