No one ever said that competing in Hollywood Game Night was going to be easy!

NBC's hit game show series is back for a second season, and this time host Jane Lynch is ready to throw some extremely difficult games at this year's wild and crazy celebrity contestants.

"We have some new games, but we're not messing up what made it great," the Glee star recently revealed to E! News. "You really do feel like you're at a party with these people. This season, there's a lot of new celebrities where people are having fun and the line blurs between celebrity and friend and they all just become gamers. "

We've snagged an exclusive hilarious first look at Monday's all-new episode of Hollywood Game Night as the Spice Girls' Mel B tries to lead her start-studded team to victory, but struggles with a tricky tongue twister. 

In the surprisingly difficult memory game, Link in the Chain, the contestants must quickly guess the word that their team captain is describing to them.

However, in true HGN fashion, there's a big catch: Before they guess the word, the players must rename each and every previous answer in the round as well as put them in the correct order. To top it all off, each of the words begin with the same letter, making transforming their long-winded answers into a giant workout for both their memories and their tongues.  

Take a look at our exclusive clip above as Mel B, joined by her teammates Brooke Camhi, Nate Berkus and Erika Christensen, battles with her brain and tries to complete the chain as fast as she can. (Spoiler alert: Parenthood's Erika Christensen puts everyone to shame with her amazing memory.)

Hollywood Game Night airs Monday at 8 p.m. on NBC. 

(E! and NBC are both part of the NBCUniversal family.)
