I’m gonna go with Noah. -Wait, wait.
Can I change, too? Because now I’m thinking about,
like, personality. -Yeah. Right? -So you’re telling me you want
me to rewind Zac Efron and replace him with Noah
right now? Is that the final answer?

-Wait. Oh, wow. -Audience, make some noise if
you think it should be Noah. -Oh, wow. -Make some noise if you think
