And the Winner is...

Ok, so I have a case of the “fuckits” today (a term coined by my dad).  I have way too much stuff to do and I ain’t got time to be blogging, so here’s the skinny.  I had to decide a winner for the trivia questions and I had to decide quick. So here is the process. Eleven questions were asked and there was no right or wrong answer for all except three. So I focused on the three that did have specific answers. Those three were question: (6) What state were two of the Ruby Tuesday fan attendees on their way to? (8) What was different about the way Jeanine was sitting while she answered your questions? (10) Who did Jeanine apologize to for being a jerk earlier?

It was simply a process of elimination. No one got all three correct answers so I based the winner on who got the least of the three answers wrong. It seemed the fairest way to decide a winner and I get to climb down off the hot seat of picking the winner.

Using that process it was simple math to decide that Bridgette Burton would be the winner by virtue of getting answer (8) correct. I was indeed sitting on someone’s lap for the longest time answering questions as I ate food. I don’t even remember who she was but I want to give her a shout out for letting my big ole’ ass sit on her lap.

So congratulations to Bridgett! She  will be emailed a $25 Ruby Tuesdays gift card as promised all those months ago and she will also get a free download of That Guy Movie on Christmas day.

For being so awsome,  Kimberly Ponder (@kapesq) and Tishana Hardy (tmarie sweet/facebook) will get free ThatGuy Movie downloads as well.

Congrats to all of them! Free codes to stream the movie on Christmas day will be emailed to each of the finalists.

All the questions and their  answers are below for everyone to see. I hope they don’t mind.  Now I have to get this movie finished.

1. What question or answer do you remember being asked at Ruby Tuesday’s?
I remember people asking the who, what, when, where, why and how of the movie. But you couldn't give many updates because you are still early in the writing process. And you are holding up the Nia show, b/c they don't know if Judah is going to be with Nia or Stacy. (But you know Judah can't get back with Nia yet. You have to draw out their drama and build up more anticipation. Alternatively, you can just give us more flashbacks of when Deon had hair and they (Judah/Nia, Mike/Renee, and Deon/Jerome) were all good friends and were triple dating together.)

2. What did you find out at Ruby Tuesday’s about Jeanine or That Guy that you didn’t know before?
I finally got to know the story behind the Super Soaker. You never gave it up in any of the you tube live shows. So I really felt like an insider by getting that information.

3. What question did you ask Jeanine?
I didn't ask a question. I was late arriving so I sat in the back and was just lurking in the cut like a stalker. Most people assumed I was one of your family members.

4. What was the most surprising thing you heard Jeanine say at the meeting?
Learning about her writing process and how the story is created on an episode by episode basis versus a season or series concept. Like how certain things have to be added to the story based on situations in the actors real lives. Like Mike having to shave for his role in another series. Or being written out of the majority of the finale because he had a conflict with the filming schedule. Not b/c it fit perfectly for how his character is a screw up.

5. What surprised you most about meeting Jeanine?
Not much. She was the same as she is on the live shows. We just just got the chance to talk our questions instead of type them. I was surprised at how much your dad is "Uncle Reggie". He told me to spin around 360 so he could see if I looked like I could be one of your relatives. (Yep. That's Uncle Reggie.)

6. What state were two of the Ruby Tuesday fan attendees on their way to? (Remember, they are now official members, like you.)
I forgot.

7. What didn’t you get a chance to ask Jeanine at Ruby Tuesdays?
I meant to ask her to autograph my That Guy dvd, but I forgot and left it at home. (maybe next time). Also, I would have asked how fans can best help her. What is the best way for a That Guy or J.Daniels fan to show our support besides spending the $3 for the episodes?

8. What was different about the way Jeanine was sitting while she answered your questions?
N/A. She was standing when I finally went to talk to her at the end.

9. Was Jeanine taller or shorter than you expected?
Taller and she had on heels. But everyone is tall compared to me.  Now I am wondering how tall Numa is.

10. Who did Jeanine apologize to for being a jerk earlier?
I don't know.

11.  What does the caption say on the picture you took with Jeanine (you can make up one or create a meme) and send a copy for us to post.
I don't have any memes, but I did send you a link to my J.Daniels Google Drive folder with the pics I took since you said you haven't seen any of your dad's photos yet. (I don't regularly use Google Drive. Let me know if you have an issue accessing the photos.)

1. What question or answer do you remember being asked at Ruby Tuesday’s?
I remember asking  what was Jeanine's end goal. Like what did she ultimately want out of life. I loved that her answer was about giving back to youth and helping them be exposed to writing and the arts. It wasn't superficial or anything. It truly let me know that she is a genuine person dedicated to what her craft can do for others.  

2. What did you find out at Ruby Tuesday’s about Jeanine or That Guy that you didn’t know before?
I didn't know about how they cast the show. It was interesting to hear how the cast members are connected.

3. What question did you ask Jeanine?
I asked a lot lol. But I also asked had Black and Sexy TV thought about coming to Atlanta. (Please come to Atlanta) I already see them expanding globally and I will be a loyal fan to help them get there :)

4. What was the most surprising thing you heard Jeanine say at the meeting?
The most surprising thing was learning about That Guy finale and how her dad helped her write it.

5. What surprised you most about meeting Jeanine?
How down to earth she was. Like I can literally see myself hanging out with her in real life. I think you don't meet a lot of folks who are on such a platform as she is who is like that.  I mean to even do the meetup in the first place was surprising and I knew that I had to take advantage of it. I remember doing a video on my SnapChat like "This is crazy what I am about to do and I am not sure how this girl is about to be" lol But the moment I introduced myself she gave me a big hug and I was like "Ok yeah she is legit"

6. What state were two of the Ruby Tuesday fan attendees on their way to?(Remember, they are now official members, like you.)
 Mmmmmm I know where two of them were from, can this count?? New Orleans and California

7. What didn’t you get a chance to ask Jeanine at Ruby Tuesdays?
Can you read my plays and poems? lol (just kidding but kinda not) But I really got all of my questions answered. I just enjoyed sitting around with everyone and soaking up all the wisdom. It was good to fellowship with all these different people in different stages in life. I really enjoyed the entire experience. I feel as though I will get another opportunity to ask more questions if they come up. (I got an email now..haha)

8. What was different about the way Jeanine was sitting while she answered your questions?
She was sitting on someone's lap at one point. Lol

9. Was Jeanine taller or shorter than you expected?
Taller

10. Who did Jeanine apologize to for being a jerk earlier?
Bridgette

INSTAGRAM CAPTION: Ok so last night I had a real groupie moment and it was a good one. (This is what your 20s are for right? ) This is Jeanine Daniels, one of the co-founders of @blackandsxytv. @msauntieneen put out on social media that she would be hanging out at Ruby Tuesday in College Park. I so want to work with Black and Sexy one day and thought this would be a great opportunity. (Been on the black and sexy bandwagon since 2012 and if y'all not on it go to YouTube now and find the shows!!) I can say that this experience was much more than just networking. She is so cool and down to earth. She sat with us and talked about her goals and aspirations. She shared behind the scenes info about @thatguyseries. She gave advice to us as artists and professionals. It was just amazing to be in her presence and soak up the knowledge she was sharing. Thank you Jeanine for reaching out to your fans! Thank you for sharing your experiences not only last night but in your work. Your stories need to be told. Your words and stories do matter. It was an honor. #blackandsexybaby
