Ice-T Goes Up Against Blake Shelton on Barmageddon
The Barmageddon holiday special featured Shelton in a Santa costume, reading a new version of “The Night Before Christmas” that went, “‘Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the bar, not a drinker was stirring — except for the star.”
During the episode, Shelton played a round of Holiday Sharts with guest star Ice-T. The game is a take on darts, in which players try to pop balloons on the wall and then guess the message it spells out. Shelton and his partner ended up being right.
According to People, the holiday special also featured several other festive games such as Merry Axe-Mas, Doodle All the Way, Little Drummer Boy (and Girl), Reindeer Games, and Christmas Carol-okie. Shelton kept his Santa costume on throughout the show.
Jelly Roll Says His ‘Spirit’s Broke’ After Losing
On Monday night, Barmageddon also aired a non-holiday episode on its usual network of USA. The episode featured country star Jelly Roll going up against comedian Gabriel “Fluffy” Iglesias.
The stars played a round of Four Play, which is a life-size version of foosball. Jelly was paired with Shelton, while Iglesias teamed up with co-creator Carson Daly. Iglesias and Daly ended up winning, prompting Jelly to apologize to his partner.
“I am an athlete, trapped in an alcoholic’s body,” Jelly said, according to Entertainment Tonight. “My spirit’s broke.”
You can catch new episodes of Barmageddon Season 2 Monday nights at 11/10c on USA. The game show is filmed at Shelton’s bar Ole Red in Nashville.
