4) When They Surprised Two Major One Direction Fans…With One Direction
Nikki and Sara did two One Direction fans a solid when they introduced the girls to their idols. The girls were brought to the show under the guise that they were going to fill Nikki and Sara’s shoes for a day, so needless to say they were thrilled when they discovered that meant interviewing One Direction.
Sara said, “We were going to have, like, five minutes with [One Direction], or something. And we didn’t know if it would be a very rewarding result, if it was just me and Nikki talking to them about their movie for five minutes, if that would be special enough.”
The Nikki & Sara LIVE team crunched ideas and figured introducing two mega-fans would be more fun.
“It was one of the most stressful and elaborate things we’ve ever done, trying to hide it from these girls and lying to them for a whole day, which was very difficult.”
Difficult, but totally worth it.
3) When They Played “Fun, Fun, Real” with The Cast of Don Jon
Nikki and Sara often take their show out of the studio and on to the streets to ask real people fun questions. This season, though, they took their game, “Fun, Fun, Real,” to the cast of Don Jon.
So, what’s the difference between playing “Fun, Fun, Real” with real people and celebs? You don’t know if the celebs will actually be game to play the game.
“We were really nervous because we didn’t know if they were going to get it,” Sara said. “We had like 10 seconds to explain it to them, and if they’re not on board, and their publicist is standing right there covering them, like touching you, like, stop, no…so we were nervous, but it was so fun and everyone was so game and it was just amazing.”
Everyone was game, but Joseph Gordon-Levitt might have let us all down when he failed to explain why ladies queef. “Joseph Gordon-Levitt was not helpful. He did not have any information at all. We were very upset,” said Sara.
And what about Nikki’s burgeoning friendship with Scarlett Johansson? “Oh, it’s pretty one-sided, like she keeps calling me, no uh, nothing has happened since, but I feel like if I ever ran into her again, she would remember me, and we shared something special. I was always a fan of hers, but now I’m a huge fan.”
