It’s now clear that Jon is our top contestant. We love working with him and it appears he loves working on the show and interacting with the fans. We work really hard to cast the contestants that appear on the show and we have worked with Jon for years now. We don’t hold our contestants to contracts that they can only appear on The Splat! Show, we don’t do that. So when we were approached by another site to ask if Jon would be interested in appearing in one of their videos we of course asked Jon and he said as long as it was ok with us, he would love to! So Jon went and filmed with them. It was a nice day out for Jon, even if he got Gunged but we were really looking forward to Jons return to his natural Gunge home on the Splat! Show. So in this show, we welcome back Jon with some fantastic brand new games. This is Jon’s Homecoming special, his season 16 solo show!
This Show Features…
Jon’s Catch Up Spin
This is was Jon’s first full Splat! Show appearance for a while. He was last seen on Splat! during a private session earlier in 2018 but this show marks his first solo show for the season. We catch up with Jon with an interview. But there is a catch. After each interview question he has to spin the Splat! Wheel. Where the wheel stops is what Jon will get. As this is the start of the show the forfeits were on the tame side but still fun and messy. The game ends with a tanking!
We have featured a game called Mucky Duckies in season 14 but this version is completely different. Jon has to fish out the rubber ducks from the vat of gunge before the time runs out. Each duck has a number written on their bellies. The remaining ducks left in the vat after the time runs out will dictate the forfeits Jon will receive…will he get the tanking too?
The Splat! Show Phone-In Battle
The Splat! Show is now interactive! If you are a fan of the show and want to help get our contestants gunged you can now take part in our Phone In Battle just like Tim did! Tim rang in LIVE during the filming of the show to try and get tank Jon. Jon did his best to fight our viewer LIVE on the show but did he succeed and stop the tanking or did our viewer on the phone release the tank!? If you want to take part in a future Splat! Phone-in Battle you can apply by emailing us at email@example.com
Balls To That and Ring Toss Double
The day before this shoot Jon took part in his first ever round of Balls to that with Adam (you can see that in Battle Royale) and was disappointed that he did not break our season record. So he asked if he could have a go at the game and try and break the record. So we granted him his wish. We also added on a game of Ring Toss too. If Jon could get all the color rings over the corresponding colored pots over two rounds he would avoid the Gunge…how does he do? Watch and find out!
Finale – The Splat! Wheel Of Torment
The Splat! Wheel is back for the finale of Jon’s Homecoming Special and this time it’s much more cruel than when it first made an appearance in the opening segment. Now the Wheel is the wheel of torment! Jon has three spins of the wheel and wherever it lands, thats the mess he will get. Cold water soaking, beans and a mega gunging await! A fitting end to Jon’s homecoming!

For you it’s probably mid/late May but at the time of writing it’s late April and Splat has just wrapped on one of its more experimental shoots. Splat doesn’t rest on its laurels. There are always new games to play and new ideas to try out… but there’s a snag. How do you try out new ideas and iron out the wrinkles when doing a retake isn’t really possible? When I did the Halloween show last year it was really more a way to try a few ideas and see what was possible but as I’d actively been involved in designing them it wasn’t really a fair test. Really you need someone who’s comfy on camera, comfy with Splat, happy to wait around whilst things are ironed out and experienced enough that we can trust him to make the show work, even if the games don’t.
In short… you need Jon.
Interval – we film a segment for separate release. It involves a costume, a set of questions that possibly could have been worded better (not my doing for once!) and a bucket of cold gunge. Yes. I feel really guilty when I blast him and no I feel no guilt for making Pete take a final decision. I’m sworn to secrecy over the rest of it though. It does however contain Jon delivering what I thought was a perfectly timed line of pure dry humour. Unscripted and unplanned I wanted to applaud him for nearly making me go easy on him.
