Punk'd Failures
This is so interesting...a list of al celebs who denied the show to air their episodes (hollywoodtuna.com)

Failed Pranks
* In December 2003, Kutcher attempted to "punk" WWE wrestler Bill Goldberg by having him think a truck had run over his prized motorcycle, when really it was a replica, but the stunt went wrong when the truck clearly missed the bike. Goldberg quickly realized what was going on, and asked "Who do I have to kill?". Kutcher then revealed himself, as the joke had failed.

* In June 2005, Kutcher failed to punk self-proclaimed King of Crunk Lil Jon. He was boarding a plane headed for Las Vegas, but Kutcher had actors playing customs agents tell him that he was actually headed for Ecuador. Lil Jon quickly identified members of the "customs agents" from previous episodes of the program, and asked for Kutcher to reveal himself.

* According to Kutcher himself, he failed to punk Neve Campbell twice until he finally succeeded on his third try in season 6.

* According to Nick Cannon in the March 3, 2006 People magazine, Ashton grew frustrated because he failed to fool Cannon about 4 times, with last attempt involving a man pretending to be trapped in a gas station. Cannon saw through the joke because he noticed the cameras and was not convinced by the actor's performance.

Juliette Lewis - MTV forgot to air her on Season 4
Constantine Maroulis - Claimed he was punk'd by Ryan Cabrera, who staged a national public radio show offering him 100 million dollars to pose nude in Playgirl
Edward Norton - Denied Punk'd broadcasting rights
Grazielle Oganna - Denied Punk'd broadcasting rights. According to Norton, she will sue Kutcher if the prank is aired

That show is ridiculous...
They never suspect they are being punk'd?
Even I can see the bad performance.

i remember reading somewhere that they played upon his fear of flying, which is a really mean thing to do, in my opinion

I'm surprised that some of the ones that have been aired were broadcasted... like, I felt that Ashanti wasn't too nice... that's just an example...

And, more specifically, I heard that they had parts falling off of the airplane Vartan was on but pretended it was going to take off anyway...what a horrible thing to do! Making someone believe that s/he is going to die isn't humorous .

I don't really get punked. I've only watched it a couple of times but I don't really think its funny. Altho I did love the justin timberlake one but since then its gone totally down hill. If you're gonna make celebritys freak out and look stupid and least make it worth watching.

Yes-- it is a show that play pranks on celebrities. Ashton Kutcher is behind the scenes and tells actors what to do through their earpiece. It puts celebs in awful positions and sometimes they lose their cool or cry which is why they probably won't sign the papers to air their episodes. Anyway, after the victim celebrity has had enough, Ashton comes out and tells them they have been punked.
