In the show's lightning round, Jarrett was asked to name her favorite boy band...

And when Oakley suggested One Direction, she blanked...

When asked who her favorite TV presidents are, Jarrett said that she prefers Scandal's Olivia Pope and House Of Cards' Claire Underwood to any fictional POTUS.

When shown this picture of a neck injury, Jarrett said...
