Each couple proudly walked towards the stage set up at the end of the gym after striking a pose for the camera. Next the contestants were seated the student body representatives hyped up the crowd by playing a game they called “Bird Box Musical Chairs.” Instead of calling the game just plain musical chairs they added “Bird Box” to the beginning because it is the name of a popular Netflix movie starring Sandra Bullock. The movie is about the characters being blindfolded because of mysterious entities that make people go crazy if they make eye contact. This created a huge buzz on social media creating a “Bird Box Challenge” where people do everyday things blindfolded, like in the movie. Two students from each class played musical chairs blindfolded which left everyone in the audience laughing as they scrambled for chairs.
