                                          What’s up with the girl sitting down the whole segment behind Hailey? I’d be stoked to see Jimmy Fallon 😂

                                          That first girl, Mary, Jimmy interviewed is a great fellow pal of mine. So proud for her, she should be very lucky and grateful to have participated.
                                          This is surely something she’ll never forget, lol. Love you, Baskin Robbins girl, ha!
                                          And thank you Roots for that freestyle for her! Was lit!

                                              Jimmy, Dunkin’ Donuts and Baskin Robbins are the same place, it’s not like they went to two different locations.
