New York's favorite news anchor (and LIVE! with Kelly guest-host) Pat Kiernan took to the Bell House stage last night for a night of 90s themed trivia—he's been hosting these always sold-out trivia nights for months now, and you can expect more 90s nights in the future. Kiernan had joined forces with sponsor TrivWorks in three previous events—one of them benefiting VH1's Save The Music campaign—before an audience poll selected the evening's 90s theme. For his grand entrance last night, he sauntered in to the tune of his favorite 90's hit, "I Want It That Way," dressed in casual attire and adorned with his very own Britney Spears mic.
Nearly 300 competitors crowded in to take on Kiernan's challenge for 90s dominance but only one team left victorious—"A Tribe Called Queens" won in a sudden death matchup by correctly identifying the movie where Shaquille O'Neal played a genie. Surprisingly, that was one of the easiest questions of the night! Seriously, if you weren't completely coherent in the 90s—say, heavily under the influence of grunge—this trivia will leave you in the dust. Competitors get two minutes to complete each round—we collected a few questions so you could test your mettle against Pat's pernicious polls. TWO MINUTES ON THE CLOCK, GO! (And no cheating... Father Canada is watching.):
