I don’t like them enough to sing them because I do this thing
where if I don’t know the words, I won’t sing. – See, not knowing the lyrics

Pop Punk more than some nah-nah, nah-nah, nah-nah, nahs. – I did listen to Blink a lot, but that was, I think, because

We knew it it’s an ultimate classic. So good.
– That song is incredible. – I was doing so good,
and then he started nodding, and I was like “that seems
like something I should do.” – (FBE) You won, how do you feel? – It’s the first challenge
I’ve ever won. I’m proud of myself. – I am really surprised
you didn’t sing at the Blink-182 song.
– Yeah, I am too. But like that last one,
it was probably the hardest one. – (FBE) Since neither of you sang,
we’ve got a little tie breaker. – Ooh!
This is getting exciting. Can we get a buzzer?

So it shows that I’ve got great judgement
at hiring Sierra, I’m a great competitor myself,
because I tied. So really, the only winner here today
is me. – Unbelievable,
