S02.E07: The Joy Luck Division 3rd Eliminations

The Graduate

School lockers for The Graduate game

When you’re lucky enough to have The Fug Girls on your show, it only makes sense that you quiz your players on iconic movie fashions.

So that’s exactly what we did on this week’s episode when GoFugYourself.com‘s Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan joined Ralph Breaks the Internet co-writer Pamela Ribon.

After the fashion show, they’ll pick out their favorite stars from teen movies from the last 30 years, and parse them out from what characters played by those actors have been up to in the intervening years.
