In this second edition of the CBS prank show "I Get That a Lot," airing Wednesday at 8, (the first aired on April Fools' Day), celebrities trick everyday citizens in a case of supposed "mistaken identity." Working ordinary jobs, these celebrities confuse customers who can't decide if it's the actual celebrity or a look-alike.


Who doesn't know who Rachael Ray is? The food show and syndicated talk show star arguably has one of the most recognizable faces in America, but she puts others to the test by turning up behind a dry cleaner's counter.

Paris Hilton works at a gas station; Julie Chen ("The Early Show") takes orders at a yogurt shop - possibly to the dismay of her husband, CBS president and CEO Leslie Moonves; Snoop Dogg admits drivers to a parking lot; skateboarder Tony Hawk helps surf-shop patrons; and KISS' Gene Simmons plays a psychic.


"It was one of the hardest things I've ever done, to purposely be a bad employee. It was like breaking my brain," Ray says. "It was an all-computerized system, and I kept breaking the machine. I couldn't figure out how to spin the stuff around to find the right clothes. It was nerve-racking to try to learn a new job and perform it at the same time. I'd love to go back and take another stab at it, now that I'm more relaxed with the concept of failing people."
