Meet our host, Mike, and his competitors, Lori and Ledoux. Mike believes that he is able to escape the trail of this bloodhound and his owner.

If Mike is unable to escape the bloodhound, Mike will eat dog food. If Mike succeeds, Ledoux will have to watch Mike dance and trash-talk him. Either way, things were going to get weird.


Mike did a lot of research and discovered that dogs can smell people's body odors and dead skin cells. This means Mike had to alter the way his own body functions.

Bloodhound owner Lori wanted Mike to have a 30 minute head start so that his scent would linger. They agreed Mike wouldn't go farther than half a mile from the starting point.

Waiting one block away are three of Mike's accomplices. Who are these people?


Mike does what everyone does when they don't want to be smelled. Step two, take your clothes off and cover yourself in vaseline.

Vaseline stops a lot of skin cells from falling off of your body and makes you look like a walking booger too.


Honora brings out Mike's unwashed laundry that he gave her two days ago. Mike's accomplices separate the laundry into three piles and place them onto three radio-controlled cars. These little dump trucks will keep his laundry close to the ground during the entire getaway.


Mike stumbles upon several overflowing trash bins and realizes that they could be useful. Mike presses his feet against them to leave his scent everywhere. Step five, use your environment as an opportunity.
