Meh. It’s fine.
Rex has your standard $12 haircut that you can set your watch to. how boring.
Winner Rob has long flowing hair, much like a proud lion.

I’m a Pats fan, but even without that qualifier...yes.

Publicly Known Fetish?
Ew. Yes. Gross. Ugh.
Winner Mercifully not.
More Likeable Team?
Winner Again, Pats fan here. I can’t vote for Rex. Never ever ever.

Better Fan Interactions?
If there are any, I haven’t heard of ‘em
Winner Rob’s been spotting partying with Nola Locals at least twice this season. He’s in full on Bill Murray mode.
