TRL Moment of the Week
We held a contest to give away a trip to Sunday's VMA's including flight, hotel, and 2 tickets to the event. It started as a karaoke contest on Monday, and then the 2 finalists came back on Tuesday to answer trivia questions about VMA-nominated videos. As the two girls tied (getting a mere 2 out of 5 correct), we went to the tie-breaker questions: How many miles is it from our Times Square studio to the American Airlines Arena in Miami?
The correct answer: 1,298 miles
Girl #1's response: 2,168 miles
Girl #2's response: 20,000 miles
Yes, 20,000 miles. Which would be close to correct if, instead of traveling south, we measured the distance heading north and going all the way around the earth.
Congrats to the winner, girl #1.
