Repo GamesThough the concept of Spike TV's 'Repo Games' is slightly disconcerting -- real-life repo men give people the opportunity to win their cars back via a basic trivia game -- it actually makes sense once you think about it. After all, the contestants were getting their vehicles repossessed anyway, why not give 'em a chance to get them paid off instead?

Show creator SallyAnn Salsano told AOL TV in April, "People say to us, 'You must feel so bad because you do have to take some of the cars.' We've been about 50/50, I would say about 50 percent of the people have won Repo Games and 50 percent have lost. That being said, when we show up at their house, they've already lost. It can't get any worse. So it's like we're just giving them a chance to win. Nobody, when we leave, is in a bad space."

AOL TV has a sneak peek of tonight's 'Repo Games' episode, in which one contestant tries to identify an "autocumulous." Can you? Watch the video below.

Watch the Scary 'Repo Games' Shooting Here

Repo GamesWhen 'Jersey Shore' mastermind SallyAnn Salsano pitched the idea for her new reality show, 'Repo Games,' she knew it would be controversial. After all, it follows two brawny repo men as they offer contestants a chance to win back the vehicles they're there to repossess.

But little did they know they would actually be in physical danger. A few months ago, a crazed man actually shot at the production team while they were filming an episode in Las Vegas.

Thankfully no one was hurt, and police arrested the suspect and charged him with attempted murder. The episode featuring the terrifying event airs on Spike tonight, but the network released a sneak peek at the shooting.

The incident will be addressed in the second episode of tonight's 'Repo Games' double header (airing at 11:30PM ET), but you can watch a clip of the shooting below.

If it weren't for SA, we wouldn't have Snooki, The Situation and Pauly D.

And who is SA?

SA is also known as SallyAnn Salsano. But the creator and executive producer of 'Jersey Shore' calls herself SA for short. In fact, she left a message on my cell phone referring to herself as SA in regards to this interview, and I almost didn't call her back until I put two and two together and realized SA was Salsano's nickname.

Anyway, Salsano, er SA, who has also produced reality shows ranging from 'A Shot at Love with Tila Tequila' to 'Tool Academy,' recently spoke with TV Squad about MTV's controversial pop culture phenomenon, which kicks off another summer of GTL -- that's gym, tanning, laundry -- and more on Thursday.
