What a Creep 

Season 5, Episode 3

Clark Gable

With his big ears and a thin mustache, Clark Gable is one of the most recognizable movie stars in the world. From “It Happened One Night” and “Gone with the Wind” to “Mutiny on the Bounty” and “The Misfits,” Gable acted in 60 movies over 37 years.

He’s also a womanizing creep who cheated on every woman he was in a relationship with and reportedly raped one of his co-stars.

Season 5, Episode 5

Reverend Jim Jones “The People’s Temple”

What a Creep: “The Houston Astros” (Season 5, Episode 4)

What a Creep

Season 5, Episode 4

The Houston Astros

Here’s the pitch: In the 2017 season, the Houston Astros used TV cameras to steal signs from opposing team’s catchers, and communicate the signs to their hitters in real-time by banging on a trash can. It sounds kinda stupid, but it’s a big deal. The Houston Astros won the World Series in 2017, due in no small part to their cheating.
