The Watermelon Incident

We'll call this the "Snooki gets punched" moment of 2010. Even before it aired, this scene from the Season 17 premiere of CBS's The Amazing Race went viral. In the clip, contestant Claire Champlin, a Home Shopping Television host, pulls back a massive slingshot holding a watermelon. But the weapon misfires, hurling the melon right back in her face just as her teammate Brooke Roberts says, "Right in the kisser." Reportedly Champlin wasn't even bruised, but here's betting she'll never want to eat watermelon again.
