Topical Storm was the first challenge in the Third Season episode Junk in the Trunk. The goal was to get the most votes to support a presentation that had little to do with the topic.


Joseph "Joe" Gatto and Salvatore "Sal" Vulcano lost with 0 votes and after the presentation, Sal was scolded for laughing through it. The presentation was about African elephants but had little or nothing to do with the subject. At one point, Joe even admits that some of the slides should be taken down. When people asked how it was relevant, Joe and Sal said that the next slide would explain it. However, the next slide just said "END".


Brian "Q" Quinn and James "Murr" Murray were the other team. Topic was supposed to be about meditation, but was a fail. One of the slides had a dog barfing diamonds which one woman got as diamonds in the rough. They were about to get no votes but one woman hesitantly voted. They got 1 vote and as a result, they won.
