Huge (Monday, 9/8c, ABC Family)
In this episode, set on "movie night" at Camp Victory, Nikki Blonsky sings.

The network with a bottomless appetite for Gordon Ramsay's antics introduces yet another Ramsay-centric cooking competition (already a hit in the UK and Australia) in which amateur cooks get the chance to up their game.
