play called Hubba, Hubba, Quiz, Quiz where we have hunks– [OOHING] We have hunks compete to
see who’s the smartest. And today, I’d like
to try something new. I have a writer named
Jason, who went to Harvard. And I know this
because he mentions it every chance he gets. Hey, Jason, come on out here. [APPLAUSE] Hi, Jason. How are you? Just great. Good. You’re wearing your
Harvard sweatshirt I see. All right, so I want to see how
well you do against the hunks today, all right? It’s time for a new game we’re
calling Hubba Hubba Harvard Quiz Quiz. [MUSIC PLAYING] All right, let’s bring
out your opponents. Matt and Chris, everybody. [CHEERING AND APPLAUSE] I see you have a
T-shirt under that. You didn’t want to wear
a T-shirt like they had? Just I would get cold
in the studio, so– OK, all right, Matt,
you’re our returning champ. You were like the Ken
Jennings of hunks. And so– and you’re
new Chris, right? I’m new, yes. Nice to meet you. Nice to meet you. All right, and of
course, there’s a fancy man who went
to Harvard there. All right, all right, we’re
