Comedian Eric Andre sat down with Jon and Tia to flex his home-state knowledge in the “Florida Man Challenge” – a game where the hosts tested Andre’s familiarity with Florida by making him guess which wild headlines came from the Sunshine State. The stakes of the game were high. With each correct answer, Jon had to throw back a full shot of ranch dressing. Unfortunately for Jon, Eric Andre knew Florida all too well.
