Tanya Hilariously Debates With Ryan About Jingle Ball “Spirit Week”


It’s almost the most wonderful time of the year — iHeartRadio’s Jingle Ball! On Wednesday, October 3, iHeart announced the official announcement for the 2018 lineup will be revealed on Monday, October 9, by ours truly Ryan Seacrest

Because it is always the most fun show, with an equally epic line-up, Tanya Rad wanted to celebrate leading up to the announcement with “spirit week.”

Ryan and Sisanie, however, think we should wait to celebrate spirit week a week before the actual show … 

“You know how we did in high school spirit weeks before like a big announcement or like the homecoming game? We would do like a spirit week here on the morning show and one day would be like crazy hair day and … we’d have different days leading up to our big Jingle Ball announcement next week,” Tanya shared. 

But then Ryan pointed out because it’s Wednesday, it’s technically already half-way through the week …

“It’s all leading up to the announcement or the concert?” he asked. “Tuesday is the announcement … so we start tomorrow? No, I would do leading up to [actual] Jingle Ball. So we do the announcement Tuesday and then the week of Jingle Ball is the spirit week.”

“Excuse me!” Tanya interjected. “This was my idea!”

The fam then took a vote with Engineer Tubbs serving as the tie breaker.

“I think the week of Jingle Ball makes more sense” Tubbs voted, sending Tanya into a frenzy.
