Thank God it's Thursday.

6:15 - The Bachelor

The upcoming Bachelor contestants has been announced along with their occupations, or aspirations, in some cases. Bachelor Nick will be looking for love among women who are aspiring dolphin trainers, unemployed nurses, and food truck owners (we're rooting for her).

6:30 - Dunkin' Donuts is 0pen! 

Dunkin' Donuts is open in New Hope! The next one opens near Ben in Roseville.

6:50 - The Trend 

A list of the most overpaid actors is out and Johnny Depp tops the list for the second year in a row. Adrian Peterson might be making a comeback to the Vikings only if they have a chance at the Super Bowl.

7:15 - Officer Schmidt 

We answered some of your cop questions this morning like that time when Ben's "friend" went over 100 miles per hour. What about those dealer plates? Porch pirates are a real thing during the holidays. How to avoid them?

7:30 - $1,000 Minute 

Amanda played a great game of $1,000 Minute -- not getting any wrong but just passing on a couple. Play with us at 7:30 a.m. and when we replay at 9:30 a.m. every day.

8:15 - Get to Know 

Lindsey, from Audi Minneapolis and Audi Saint Paul hung out with us in the studio, and we talked about about our choices for Ben, Dana and Giselle's Person of The Year. Ben's nominating Lindsey for letting him take an A4 for a spin. Harambe topped our list because it was really his year, and we're not sure we could have gotten through 2016 without him. Twenty One Pilots, "Felisch" from KARE 11 and Intern Anna's parents are all on our list as well.

8:30 The New Dating Trend Will Shock You 

It's not just about dating one person anymore. According to eHarmony Australia, the average single person is dating six (yes, you read that right) people all at the same time. Were B, D and G really that surprised? Not really, because with Tinder, Bumble, Twitter and just good old fashioned communication people are talking to their ex, their booty call and those four other random people.

9:30 Thirsty Thursday 

We welcome our friend Ethan from Lakes and Legends back on the show. They will be celebrating their first birthday this weekend with a giant party and craft market. You can get your holiday shopping done and your drink on, all in one place! Ethan stopped in with their bourbon aged stout and a cranberry saison, but we're most excited about though their winter warmer that will be on tap this weekend at their anniversary party. It will really warm you up!

9:50 The Weekend Shenanigans 

Join B, D and G tomorrow night at Fine Line for the Battle of the Bands.

The Calhoun Square tree lot is open all weekend long, so go get your Christmas on and do something really good for the community.

Celebrate one year of brewing with Lakes and Legends this Saturday starting at 12 p.m.

If you want more chicken wings in your life, check out Wing Thing 2016 at Eastlake Craft Brewery on Sunday.

9:50 - Rap Up

Don't forget the Daily Rap Up with Chaz Kangas (@chazraps) who freestyles a secret word and recaps everything we talked about previously in the show.
