PLOT: People care way too much about their phones. In I Want My Phone Back, host Alana Johnston and a cast of improvisers take to the streets of Los Angeles to see if contestants will put their mobile devices in the hands of total strangers, for a chance to win cold, hard cash. Alana and her cohorts can log into contestants' social media, taking every liberty as they post, text, and call to their hearts' desire in an effort to wreak complete havoc on their marks. Who will go the distance, and who will yell "I want my phone back!"?
CAST: Alana Johnston | Inessa Frantowski | Blake Rosier
Alana goes so far that a contestant almost pukes, Inessa has a nervous breakdown in public, and Blake very nearly gets hit by a car. Things just got real...and it's only our first day.
Alana discovers a very unsettling dating app in one contestant's phone, while she pushes the envelope too far with another. Meanwhile, Blake and Inessa challenge two dudes to an iPhone slingshot contest which is...exactly what it sounds like.
A substitute teacher risks breaking off his engagement for an amount of money that's truly not worth it and a strip club "owner" gets bilingual with a contestant's grandma. Meanwhile, Blake and Inessa make two PAs fight to the death...sort of.
Alana scratches someone's phone really really badly and ruins what seems like every single friendship for one very unlucky contestant. Meanwhile, Blake and Inessa push a passersby to the brink.
