6:00 It's Almost Christmas Time!

Happy Tuesday and thanks for hanging with Ben, Dana and Giselle all morning long! Ben came into work after noticing an interesting action going on across the street. A woman was peeing against the wall because when you gotta go, you gotta go. Pro tip: Don't make eye contact, although it is hard to look away. Fun fact: Only 11 months until Christmas!

6:15 Want to be skinny and survive a plane crash?

Is there a way to be skinny and survive a plane crash? Ben, Dana and Giselle have all the answers for you! First off, breakfast really is important as long as it's not a donut or a bagel because #carbs. Bananas and oatmeal are good, greek yogurt and eggs are awesome for your body as well. Want to survive the plane crash? Sit as far back in the plane as possible with the whole nose dive thing. Most plane crashes are survivable as long as you run away from the wreckage, fast, in around 90 seconds.

6:30 Geography Game Show

Ben asked Dana, Giselle and Intern Anna some questions about geography. Easy, right? First question: What is the closest United State to Africa? Any guesses? When in doubt, just guess Alaska! Next up: In what American city can you drive south from and end up in Canada? Intern Anna knows...because it happened once to her!

6:50 The Trend 

Oscar nominations are out today and La La Land is getting ready to sweep with 14 nominations. Governor Dayton is doing ok after collapsing on January 24 giving the state address at the Capitol. Alec Baldwin is breaking his own record by hosting Saturday Night Live over Valentine's weekend.

7:15 When the ex hits you up...

Giselle is having a little bit of ex-relationship drama, and it starts with her being recently single and in a very good place about it. The problem? All of her other exes are coming out of the woodwork now that they know she's single again. Ben and Dana are saying this behavior is just a guys' power game, and it's that time of year where all people want to do is couple up for V-Day and break up for Spring Break.

7:30 $1000 Minute 

Jessie played $1000 Minute this morning and those geography questions came back around. Play with Ben, Dana and Giselle every day at 7:30am.

8:15 Get To Know

Emma Stone recently came out and said she sucked on her thumb until she was 11 years old. No shame because it sounds like everyone has one of those kid habits they just can't kick. Ben had a "blankey" he refused to give up until sleepovers started happening in middle school. Dana had "tata" until he went to college because his bed was his home. Sleeping next to your parents during thunderstorms, biting your nails, and all those blankies are nothing to be ashamed about.

8:30 Would You Rather: Gym Edition

Would You Rather always gets fun, but what about when the question is about our sacred time at the gym? Would you rather always smell other people's body odor, or never be able to take a shower after you work out again? Would you rather do burpees for two hours straight or lift weights with raging diarrhea?
