Shawn swoops in and steals the show with his story about fridge scrubbing, prompting ML and Marc to accuse him of being an energy vampire, while Joe struggles to maintain consciousness.

Jason, watching on Facebook, offers to help with ML’s volleyball team – the Ace Holes – on their quest for glory.

GEEK OF THE WEEK: Lindsay Lohan, Jake Paul and Kendra Lust were on track to be this week’s Geeks … until ML realized the REAL winner/loser is anyone who took their advice on cryptocurrency.
