NEW YORK -- Wendi McLendon-Covey of "The Goldbergs" is now hosting a new reality show called "Repeat After Me"!

If you want to see celebrities saying and doing crazy things to unsuspecting regular people, look no further.

McLendon-Covey says that she and the writers come up with situations and hilarious lines to arm the celebrities with laugh-out-loud moments.

The everyday people are not aware that they're on camera until it's absolutely necessary!

This week, the host of "The Bachelor, Chris Harrison, makes a home improvement store worker really earn his paycheck.

McLendon-Covey pointed to Scott Foley (ABC's "Scandal") as one of the funniest stars they've had on so far, because he was able to stay completely straight-faced during the segment.

McLendon-Covey doesn't have a whole lot of time to herself these days because she also stars as "Beverly Goldberg" on ABC's "The Goldbergs". She said that she and the rest of the cast were particularly proud of their "Goldberg's Day Off" episode that spoofed "Ferris Bueller's Day Off". If you haven't seen it yet, you'll want to check it out online!

You can watch "Repeat After Me" on Tuesdays at 8:30 p.m., and "The Goldberg's" airs Wednesdays at 8:30 p.m. both on ABC!
