commercial break

DeShae formerly lived in New Orleans but as things shut down she moved to Oakland to live with her grandparents.

DeShae wants to keep her dad and has faith in Jimmy so she's swapping her 50:50 to keep Darrian.

$64,000: Which of the following has never been a flavor of Ben & Jerry's ice cream?
A - Honey, I'm Home
B - Go Fudge Yourself
C - Economic Crunch
D - Marsha Marsha Marshmallow

During the commercial break she and Jimmy discussed ice cream - both of them have banana as their favorite, and Darrian works in an ice cream production facility. DeShae eats a lot of ice cream but none of those flavors. B sounds like something Ben & Jerry might use. DeShae's phone-a-friend isn't in the ice cream business. C seems a bit insensitive; she says she doesn't hear much about honey ice cream. DeShae is going to use a lifeline but has to decide which one. She asks her dad.
Ask the smartest person results:
He works with ice cream but doesn't eat it. A is the "calmest" one of the four. DeShae says she wouldn't put marshmallows in her ice cream Darrian would say A.
DeShae makes that her final answer.
Answer: B (Go Fudge Yourself)
