  • Alejandro F was chosen by kitchen staff Drinka for, among other things, his good manners, his willingness to try new foods, and his “cute dimples.” 
  • Several staff members, upon hearing the description, displayed utter astonishment when their name was not subsequently announced as the Chief.  Several dimple-related debates and comparisons ensued.  Order was quickly restored by Director Jeff before the TP Olympic Award Ceremony began.

In an excruciatingly close competition that came down to the Flag and Cheer competitions, the “Kenya Catch-Me’s” narrowly defeated the “County D Decepticons” by a score of 120 to 118!
