Meeting your celebrity obsession isn’t always what it’s cracked up to be — especially when you’re hypnotized.
Double Take follows celebrity hypnotist Chris Jones as he hypnotizes unsuspecting superfans into not recognizing their celebrity idols before coming face-to-face with them.
In an exclusive look at Rippon’s episode, the ice-skater trash talks himself while pretending to direct the superfan, who is acting as a stand-in for Rippon, in a commercial for a sports drink.
“We want Adam to be a hero ’cause right now he’s just an athlete,” the Dancing with the Stars alum says totally straight-faced.
“He’s a hero now for a lot of people,” the fan responds, clearly unaware that he’s talking to the hero in question.
Rippon then encourages his participant to hold the drink, take a sip, and pose as “full Adam.” In response, the fan reclines, winks and flashes a toothy grin, prompting his “director” to ridicule him.
“Can we move on from this?” Rippon jokingly wines, unimpressed.
