Tomorrow is Oscar night, and you know what that means… it’s time for the Oscar pools! Those pools for those of us who have little to no interest in football, (ie: Actors)…

It’s also time for Hank to step up to the plate and put up his choices for who’s going to win, under threat of drag… This year will be a little different though. Hank isn’t the only one in this year. I, Mr Jitters will be going head to head against the Mr. Beast himself. The loser will have to put on the worst red carpet dress of the year…
