Lol! So my question is like how was it with you and Nathan when he was eliminated?

Then one of the girls told me that Derek really liked me,
And that he thought Nathan was in the way so he chose to eliminate him!
I was like, Nathan who?

What the hell was that Paula?
Why did you let her get through?
NARRATOR
How was I suppose to know she say that?
Anyway you have a small crowd of fans awaiting outside!

Are they suppose to have dialogue or did you want that character to do that animation without talking? Because if you want them to just do an animation, the code is @TENELLE is kiss_blow_happy_atcamera

Oh thank you I didn’t see that haha no wonder it doesn’t work, good spotting @Dara.Amarie!!
