One of the reasons Bubba was in the studio was to "shock the balls" and his two subjects, Richard and Sal, came in to get their shocks. Howard then explained Bubba was duct taping dog collars to Richard and Sal's testicles and acknowledged he was concerned with the effects the shocks might have on them. However, Bubba assured Howard he has performed the act a number of times before, and he'd never experienced any problems.
Bubba noted he was going to administer a shock to Richard, and then give one to Sal, and the game would continue, with the number of shocks given increased by one for each round, until one of them "tapped out."
Howard added the winner of the contest would get an invite to Robin's party, while the loser would have to stay home.
When Richard got his first shock, he yelled and described the pain as feeling like "a tiny, little midget hand was pulling his balls two feet down," but added it wasn't as bad as he thought it'd be.
However, when Sal had his testicles shocked, he described it as if "a switchblade" was stuck into him. Artie then asked to hold the controller, but, when it was handed to him, he chose not to administer any shocks.
Gary also pointed out Richard was inadvertently shocked twice, which meant Sal should either have to take another hit, or Richard would be the one to go to Robin's party. Sal responded he wanted to tie the score and gave Bubba permission to shock him again, which he did.
