Howard reported that the 11 performers were set to go and that an audience of 20-30 people was packed into the studio. Bubba the Love Sponge, who came up from Florida especially to participate in Ronnie's roast, said that he prepared for his appearance on tonight's episode of "The Situation with Tucker Carlson" by shaving his arms and consuming water pills, which he claimed helped him lose a few pounds in the past day. Howard proceeded to turn his attention to JD, who he noted was sitting on the floor while supposedly operating the boom mic for the crowd. After demanding that Scott make the necessary adjustments that were needed for the boom mic, Gary mentioned that Ronnie wasn't in his seat because he wanted "to make an entrance." Gary then cued Ronnie, who came into the studio accompanied by two Scores girls and "a civilian;" Dakota, Brooke and Robin. However, as Howard attempted to ask the girls some questions, Ronnie informed him that they'd only talk to Howard if he gave them permission to do so.
