When Kantkiss Neverclean replaces her sister as a contestant on the Hunger Games - the second highest rated reality TV show in Peaceland, behind Extreme Home Makeover - she has no idea what to expect. Having lived her life in the telemarketing district's worst neighbourhood, the Crack, Kantkiss feels unprepared to fight to the death while simutaniously winking and looking adorable for the cameras. But when her survival rests on choosing between the dreamy hunk Carol Handsomestein, or the doughy klutz Pita Marlarkey, Kantkiss discovers that the toughest conflicts may not be found on a battlefield but in her own heart, which is unfortunately on a battlefield.

Saturday Night LiveEdit
SNL parodied The Hunger Games in the episode Vergara/One Direction (first aired 4/7/2012). Guest host Sofia Vergara played an overenthusiastic on-field reporter who kept getting the tributes she was trying to interview killed, until Katniss (Abby Elliot) introduces her to nightlock berries, which gives her just enough time to throw back to Claudius Templesmith (Fred Armisen) and Caesar Flickerman (Bill Hader) back in the studio. Caesar then exhorts viewers to stay tuned for the "Hunger Games Puppy Bowl" and plugs event sponsor Tylenol ("Spear in the head? TYLENOL!") before going to commercial.
How The Hunger Games Should Have EndedEdit
The YouTube channel HISHEdotcom, which is famous for making alternate endings of well known movies and TV shows, made an alternate ending of The Hunger Games. It opens with Caesar Flickerman commentating on the arrival of the tributes in the horse-drawn carriages. Katniss and Peeta appear on fire and screaming. The Games then begin with Cato, Clove and other tributes killing each other. Glimmer then shoots Edward Cullen in the leg with a bow and arrow. Katniss shoots Cato in the hand and he is mauled by Mutts. Katniss and Peeta celebrate their win, but Claudius Templesmith announces than there can only be one victor. Katniss and Peeta then threaten to eat the nightlock berries, Peeta eats the nightlock berries and Katniss confesses that she doesn't love him, saying "Have you seen Gale? Hottie!" The video has received over 1 million views.
The Hillywood ShowEdit
The Hillywood Show's parody of The Hunger Games shows Hilly Hindi lip-synching, as Caesar Flickerman singing Fashionista by Jimmy James, inserting the words Hunger Games where the word Fashionista should be.

Katniss twirls around a couple of times and then all the tributes dance with Caesar.
