wants to prove that David Blaine’s greatest illusion is fooling the public. In a recent announcement, Lovell criticized Blaine for his “lackluster performances” and challenged him to a duel to “test his skill and entertainment value.” The setup would be simple. Each escape artist performs a dangerous stunt in front of a live audience on national television. After each performance, viewers get to choose the routine that was more entertaining and stunning.
