Miss any of The Big Jim and Anna Show today? Here's what happened... in Cliff Notes form.
HONDA OF WESTPORT 7:40A COUPLE’S COURT: BESTIES
BFF Week kicks off with Terry who knows that her best friend Jackie has been lying about her age for years- Now, she has gone so far as to throw herself a “30”th birthday party but Terry wants her to come clean and tell their mutual best friends that she’s really 41. Should she have to? Ultimately the audience agreed with Jackie- It’s no one’s business how old she is and she doesn’t have to tell anyone anything if she doesn’t want to.
TRIPLE SHOT OF INFO ESPRESSO

WOULD YOU CUDDLE A STRANGER?
London has a new cuddle workshop where you pay about $50 American dollars to cuddle with strangers- Big Jim and Anna agree that they’re not cool with cuddling with strangers… We sent our intern Zimmerman out to the mall to ask people to cuddle with him and got their reactions- Check out the podcast to listen to their response.

Big Jim and Anna had some predictions for last night’s big night. Here are the results::
- How many times will Biebers arrest be mentioned? Over/Under is 10. Big Jim says more than ten, Anna says less.
ANSWER: NONE. Anna wins.
- Will there be a hologram used of a dead artist? Jim says yes, Anna says no.
ANSWER: NO HOLOGRAM. Anna wins.
- Who will “blow up the Internet” with their choice outfit? Anna says Beyonce, Big Jim says Rihanna. Both agree that it will because they will look stunning, not ridiculous. (Jim does think that Rihanna will be very daring though)
ANSWER: RIHANNA DIDN’T EVEN SHOW UP. BEYONCE’S OUTFIT AND PERFORMANCE MADE TWITTER GO CRAZY- Anna wins.
Hmmm… we see a pattern… Anna wins.
