Ben, Dana and Giselle's replay: 10/18/16

Compliments from Canada, money-saving tips, and gender-role reversal.

We kicked off the morning with some small talk about how Giselle is making a little extra cash on Poshmark. Then we randomly moved into finding the "thief" in the building who stole single Ben's Sriracha and eggs from yesterday, because everyone wants left over eggs. Just kidding, he just didn't look hard enough and we located the eggs for breakfast. Thank goodness!

Canada Thinks We're Pretty
It has been a rough year for America, between how many people we've lost too soon and this mess of a presidential election. Our good buddy up north, Canada, is the friend we make fun of a little, but they will always be there for us. To help America feel better, Canada wrote a little song that we played to help all Americans start their day with a smile.

We Can't Save Money

We checked out the biggest things that we waste money on for the sake of convenience: entertainment or just down right stupidity. Do we ever want to know just how much we are spending on Ubers, eating out, and boutique workout classes? No we don't. There is hope for us though, because there are so many helpful apps out there to help us save. Our favorite goes to Cartwheel from Target.

The Trend

A popular and insanely expensive ticket might be coming to Minneapolis. Billy Bush is officially leaving the Today show, and Bob Dylan is ghosting the Nobel Prize committee.

Female Proposals

We heard about a new trend that is going against the tradition. We talked about the feels we get when talking about women proposing to their boyfriends, is it becoming a thing of the future? What about those red flag moments when the guy just can't commit? We gave some advice, and our idea of why this could be a good or bad thing.

$1000 Minute

Mitch kicked off $1000 Minute this morning and he took home a little cash, but I think he was more excited about the $50.00 gift card to McDonald's for that all day breakfast life.

Get To Know

This morning on Get To Know, we wanted to know more about some gender roles you wanted to see reversed. First and foremost, Ben wants to be the little spoon once and a while! Dana is definitely digging Rom-Coms more than what society says is cool. And what guy doesn't want some moobs (*see man boobs).

Green Day Lyrics

We played another new game called "Complete the Lyrics." A lot of people tried, but it was Mitch who was able to finish up the lyrics and he's going to Green Day in April.
