Is Jimmy Fallon’s “Wax On, Wax Off” Game Utterly Unwinnable?
The stakes are quite high on Jimmy Fallon's "Wax On, Wax Off," the late-night host's newest twist on an old trivia game. For every correct answer, you get $100! For every incorrect answer, you get a patch of chest hair waxed right off! That doesn't really seem fair, but it gets worse -- all the answers have to come from a pal (not you), the categories are ludicrously hard, and Fallon gets to pick which section your questions will come from.
Can anyone win this game? What about last night's 'Tonight Show' participants, a pair of dart league (giggle) buddies who seem remarkably nonplussed by the entire experience? You already know the answer, but that doesn't mean the whole thing isn't weirdly watchable, especially during those strange moments of hope when it seems like "Wax On, Wax Off" isn't totally rigged.
