Ashton Kutcher Says 'Punk'd' Lost $300,000 in One Episode Because the Prank Didn't Work


Punk'd was everyone's favorite guilty pleasure of the noughties. I mean, what's better than watching Ashton Kutcher prank some celebrities? 

After appearing on the most recent episode of Hot Ones, Kutcher was quizzed on how he managed to convince celebs to let them air footage of the pranks, and how much money the show lost when one prank went wrong. 

"We never aired a single episode that a celebrity didn't sign a waiver to say, 'It's OK to air this," Kutcher said when asked about privacy concerns by Hot Ones host Sean Evans.

Kutcher went on to reveal that he would often show celebrities the final cut of the show to get their permission to air what was filmed.
