S05.E06: J-School Dropouts

Brides and reporters take the front seat in this week's contest! Returning from our summer Blockbusters episode, Vandy takes on newcomers Seraphina and Brigid in three rounds of pop culture trivia. Round one allows us to reminisce on our favorite pop culture weddings, before a decidedly less celebratory round two, where we take unethical pop culture journalists to task. A tense lightning round caps it all off!
