The Producers


"Dream Team in the back...go wait under the bus." Mariah Volz said while posing for the group picture.

"Hey, I'm a suburban dad," Chandler Reed said while dancing in the restaurant.

"This is what I get for talking," said Jessica Larson as we learn we are at a karaoke restaurant just for Jess and the other HTV songbirds who had mentioned they wanted to go to just such a place during the trip.
