Power and Persuasion

Keegan-Michael Key welcomes billionaire CEO and star of "Shark Tank" Mark Cuban to explore how business-savvy, powerful brains might be different from others, and how power can manipulate the way we think. Cuban and Key undergo a series of challenges involving split-second decision-making via rapid hiring and firing, memory mastery and a ruthless game of "Simon Says." Plus, actor Colin Hanks demonstrates the halo effect by disguising his identity to become a pretentious artist. Mentalist Lior Suchard manipulates the audience to move pendulums with their minds, and Cuban tests his mettle in the Gauntlet's mental obstacle course.
