Usually, spending a couple of hours with the mechanic isn't highly on everyone's list nor something you generally look forward to doing.

There were plenty of other stars on the carpet, including "Peepshow" stars Holly Madison and Laura Croft, mixed martial arts icon Randy Couture, actor Jason Flemyng, "The Mechanic" Director Simon West, Flamingo Las Vegas comedian/magician Nathan Burton, and the former host of "The Price is Right" at Bally's, Joey Fatone. We asked Fatone about the transition from boy band star to Vegas game-show host: VIDEO.
