Episode 3

Our celebrity magicians perform comedy magic for a rowdy and drunken college crowd. One of the contestants faces a severe handicap that may ultimately result in their elimination.

Episode 4

They have won the hearts of children and collegiate scholars, but can they win the heart of grandma?

Plus, a surprise switcharoo of the coaches sends shockwaves through the competition.

In their most death-defying challenge yet, the remaining celebs are forced to deal with their greatest fears in Phobia magic. As the winner of the previous week's challenge, Tommy is given the special power of assigning the escapes, and his choice infuriates Hal and shatters their friendship.

Episode 7

After six weeks of learning magic and surviving difficult challenges and eliminations, the final two contestants hit the road.
