    Unless Sing Your Face Off is a literal description of what happens on the show, most TPS readers probably won’t be checking it out.

Players get fined $5,000 for the first offense, $10,000 for the second, $15,000 for the third, and $30,000 for the fourth. Has this reduced the amount of flopping? Of course not! Players who […]
