of you dropping into soup, the soup drops on to you. To celebrate the
board game, let’s play you Bet Your Wife right now. [MUSIC PLAYING] All right, so this is– my producer Kevin comes up
with all these wonderful games. And Joel is his right-hand man. And every time there’s a
new game or any new trivia, Kevin tests out on
his best friend. Lauren, and her wife,
Elizabeth, here. I guess– well, they’ve
gotten pretty competitive. And Lauren and
Elizabeth have been bragging that they can beat
Kevin and Joel at this game. So we’re about to find out. All right, Elizabeth, how
