The Contest


Episode Info

When George's mother catches him pleasuring himself to her copy of Glamour magazine, he pledges to swear off the deed entirely. Doubtful of George's will-power, Jerry offers to make things more interesting by putting some money on the line. When Kramer and Elaine catch wind of the wager, they decide that they also want in on the contest to determine who among them is the "master of his [or her] domain." Thus begins one of the most popular and critically acclaimed episodes of the series. Frasier's Jane Leeves returns as Marla the virgin, one of the many tempters who also include John F. Kennedy Jr. and a nubile nurse and patient in George's mother's hospital room. Originally broadcast November 18, 1992, "The Contest" was the 11th episode of the show's fourth season.
