Why did you flip the switch?!
00:02
No, don't you zen (beep) me. Go over there!
00:08
We got shanked (laugh)
00:10
I went from this is a nice peaceful game of golf
00:13
with Shawne Merriman,
00:13
and now Shawne Merriman's going to kill me.
00:16
I want to know what's going on!
00:17
Calm it down.
00:18
How can they top this though, honestly?
00:19
Can you get Shawne Merriman?
00:20
[Male] Season two.
00:21
I know, right?
00:23
Yeah, we have this ran in with the video line,
00:25
and then stick it up here.
00:27
We'll throw a bunch of leaves around it so it's real hidden,
00:29
then we're rocking.
00:31
We're out here playing a nice little game of golf.
00:33
Shawne comes up and hooks on with us.
00:35
With Shawne, well, yeah.
00:37
I just thought it was cool that he was playing with us
00:38
and it was kind of weird.
00:40
And here comes Clyde with a new cart
00:41
to change out with the guys.
00:43
The cart is going to get out of control
00:45
when we switch it out, come at me,
00:47
I'm going to fake an injury,
00:48
and it's going to run over Shawne Merriman's clubs.
00:50
I'm going to find a way to make sure that they think
00:52
it's their fault.
00:53
[Male] We're all standing in the control room van
00:55
out in the bush over there, and then it all started to begin
00:57
and it started to unfold. It was crazy.
00:59
Go cart, go cart, go cart.

MC, I
01:06
(Beep)
01:07
I feel like I'm going to pass out.
01:08
You're good, I'm a first
01:09
You're fine, you're fine.
01:09
And I'm watching all this interaction go down
01:11
between Shawne Merriman and Judd.
01:13
You were too close.
01:13
What the hell, to my cart?
01:15
I know. Hey, relax.
01:15
Judd and I especially go way back.
01:17
I know he's got a crazy temper.
01:19
Do you want to threaten me right now?
01:20
(Beep)
01:22
Hey! Hey! No!
01:23
I was like, Oh gosh, we're going to die.
01:25
We're going to die.
01:26
Oh (beep). (Beep) got real.
01:27
(Laughs) Yeah!
01:28
I just wanted it to be over.
01:31
Shawne?
01:32
You been shanked.
01:33
Ooooh, you guys just got shanked.
01:36
Oh, you mother (beep)
01:38
(screams and shouts)
01:42
Judd felt totally responsible for the entire thing,
01:44
even though he didn't even do anything.
01:47
Yeah, it was pretty good.
01:49
How'd you? (laughs)
01:52
[Shawne] Oh my God!
01:53
No way, that's a
01:54
That's a camera?!
