Plot Synopsis

Unsuspecting members of the public are secretly dared to pull a prank on their unwitting companions with absolutely no time to prepare. If they agree to participate, they must obey all instructions given through an earpiece from a secret control room nearby. With the opportunity to prank their way to cash and prizes, these everyday people will be shown no mercy as they are tasked with pulling off some of the most ridiculous behavior ever caught on hidden camera. Howie Mandel is an executive producer of this series. DEAL WITH IT returned for its second season on Wednesday, March 19, 2014 at 10:30pm ET/PT on tbs, with an episode that featured Howie Mandel and Nick Cannon. Subsequent episodes in Season 2 featured celebrities and comedians, who helped feed pranks to contestants, including these stars: Heidi Klum, Roman Atwood & Dennis Roady; Tom Green & Iliza Shlesinger; Kendall Jenner, Kylie Jenner & Gary Owen; and many more, like Kelly Osbourne, Arsenio Hall, Bill Engvall, Kevin Nealon, Giuliana & Bill Rancic, Alex Mandel, Chris Jericho, Bob Saget, Orlando Jones and Moshe Kasher. On Friday, October 24, 2014 at 9pm ET/PT on TBS, DEAL WITH IT returned with 10 additional Season 2 episodes. Howie Mandel and Nick Cannon (again) were the celebrity guests in the first episode back, with two pranks: a mother who takes safe sex lessons too far; and a boyfriend's attempt at communicating after biting his tongue. Later episodes in the second half of Season 2 featured these stars: Bobby Lee, Ross Mathews, Jerry O'Connell, Marlon Wayans, Jack Osbourne, Kym Whitley, Jessimae Peluso, Andrew 'King Bach' Bachelor, Jeannie Mai, and more.

Then, in the season finale, Marlon Wayans directs a contestant who introduces his wife to some people he met on an alternative lifestyle website that specializes in cuddling parties, and then Mo Mandel helps a contestant who has his hands full when his favorite client shows up and proposes an item to cross of her bucket list.
