CARL: And we’re back! This is Carl Drake, play-by-play commentator for NBS Broadcasting, coming to you live from the Nosy Bee. Next up is Mary Lovingham Thomas, MLT to her fans in the NB1 circuit.

TOM: That’s right, Carl. This is Tom Hicks, color commentator for NBS Broadcasting, and you may recall MLT’s incredible performance in the semis two years ago, when she ferreted out both an unintended pregnancy and an extramarital affair.

CARL: She lost the semis to Karen Smiley, who went on to win the Nosy Bee overall that year, in a very controversial round.

TOM:
That’s right, Carl. But with Smiley banned from competition for two years due to being caught with nosiness-enhancing substances, MLT may be on track to take the crown at long last.

CARL:
She still has to go up against Carolyn Washington, the Madwoman of Second Baptist, in this round, though. It’s not gonna be easy.

TOM:
That’s right, Carl, MLT is going to need to ferret, wheedle, gossip, and grasp her very best if she hopes to make it to the top of this year’s very competitive pile. What do you think will be an early sign, for her?

CARL:
If MLT can successfully figure out which of these eligible single people, if any, are dating, it will put her in a very favorable position for the quarterfinals.
