You Just Got Punk'd: 6 Quintessential Star Stings in Honor of BET's Reboot


You Just Got Punk'd: 6 Quintessential Star Stings in Honor of BET's Reboot

From 2003 to 2007, one man had the most feared name in Hollywood: Ashton Kutcher.

The actor earned his reputation as one of the biggest pranksters in Tinseltown with the launch of Punk'd, his hidden-camera prank show that set out to trick the biggest stars around.

Though the show was revived back in 2012 for a one-season run with new host Justin Bieber, it's been far too long since we could watch celebrities accidentally break things, get their property "repossessed" and – on one memorable instance – even be accused of kidnapping. Luckily, our long prank drought has finally come to an end: Punk'd finally returns to TV Tuesday thanks to BET.

While we're sure that the new hosts DeStorm Power and King Bach will surely play plenty of practical jokes that will rival Kutcher's classics, we figured we'd help them out a bit by rounding up some of the quintessential Punk'd pranks, just in case they need a little bit of inspiration.

No, you're not being Punk'd: The hidden camera series is coming back!

BET announced Thursday that it's reviving MTV's reality show Punk'd – though there's no word on whether host Ashton Kutcher is putting his trucker hat back on to prank his celeb friends, according to The Hollywood Reporter. (We're guessing he's a little busy with his baby daughter, burgeoning tech empire and that chicken-stealing lawsuit.)

In honor of #ThrowbackThursday, here are five of our favorite Punk'd stunts from its glory days: 2003 to 2007, plus a special installment in 2012.

Girls just wanna have fun!

Zoë Saldana's pal Gabrielle Union says the newly single actress is doing "great" after her recent split from Bradley Cooper.

"She's awesome," Union, 40, told PEOPLE on the red carpet before hosting the 2013 BET Honors – airing Feb. 11 at 9 p.m – at the Warner Theater in Washington, D.C., on Saturday.

Union – who rang in the New Year with the Words actress in Miami – calls Saldana, 34, "dope" and says the duo has a blast whenever they're together.
