Question: I have to win this bet with my friends. I told them the preview for tomorrow night's The O.C. is deceiving, and Mischa Barton is not returning for the Chrismukkah episode. But they are convinced that she is. There is an amazing dinner at the Cheesecake Factory riding on this. Make it happen, man, make it happen.

Answer: Congratulations, Ryan! You just won dinner for one at the Cheesecake Factory! As an added perk, if you mention Ask Ausiello to your server, you'll also receive a free slice of Chocolate Oreo Mudslide Cheesecake.*
