MOLLY BLOOM: Hi, it's Molly Bloom, host of Smash Boom Best, and I have an exciting announcement to share. Smash Boom Best will be back with a whole new season this February 1st, and we're kicking it all off with our 100th episode.

Can you believe we've made 99 episodes so far? And we've got a whole new pile of exciting matches coming up in the new season, such as hippopotamus versus dragonfly, pogo stick versus unicycle, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles versus My Little Pony--

MAN: Yeah, dude.

BOY: Never fear!

MOLLY BLOOM: --and Pegasus versus centaur.


I'm definitely going to have to limber up for all of this juicy content, and what better way to limber up than a montage? Before we dive in, let's review the rules of the game.

ANNA WEGGEL: Faster, Molly.

MOLLY BLOOM: Sorry, producer Anna Weggel. Every debate consists of four rounds of argumentation, the Declaration of Greatness, the Micro Round, the Sneak Attack, and the Final Six.


MOLLY BLOOM: After each round, our judge will award points to the team that impresses them the most.

ANNA WEGGEL: You've got to go faster than that!

MOLLY BLOOM: But they'll keep their decisions top secret until the end of the debate. Whew.

ANNA WEGGEL: Better. Now watch out for incoming logical fallacies.


Look out! It's a circular argument!



ANNA WEGGEL: Oh, no, a slippery slope.

MOLLY BLOOM: Not today!


ANNA WEGGEL: [GASPS] A red herring.

MOLLY BLOOM: Get out of here, bad debate techniques.

ANNA WEGGEL: Quick, Molly, which do you like better, sand or grass?

MOLLY BLOOM: Um, um, um, both are great.


ANNA WEGGEL: No! Blobfish or naked mole rats?

MOLLY BLOOM: Um, neither?


ANNA WEGGEL: Incorrect. Soup or sandwiches?

MOLLY BLOOM: Don't make me choose!


ANNA WEGGEL: Fine, but only because you're the host. Now wrap it up, pup.

MOLLY BLOOM: OK, which sides do you think will come out on top? There's only one way to find out. Tune in on February 1 for the first of 16 new sizzling smackdowns. See you soon, Smash Boom besties.
