In between artists, hostess Teresa read sex-based trivia questions, which she recapped at the end of the show, revealing the answers. The winner, with 7 out of 10 correct answers, was Zaka, who excitedly claimed, ” I knew having all that sex would eventually pay off!” She’s now the proud owner of a Tribe of One book and Tshirt.
