Each issue, two on-air talents from two different Zimmer Communications’ stations will take on a seemingly simple challenge to see who comes out on top. This issue, Liz from Clear99 and Kat from Y107 went head-to-head to see who has the better hand-tortilla coordination. Click here to see a video of the full challenge!

Each DJ gets one tortilla, fills their mouth with water and prepares to perform rock-paper-scissors before each round to determine who will get slapped. If the contestant spits the water out of their  mouth after being hit, they lose!


Liz from Clear99 came prepared, trash bag in hand, ready to take on the spray. While Kat from Y107 was concerned, not knowing what the competition would consist of, but prepared to take on the mysterious challenge, nonetheless.


Liz and Kat started the first round with an unexpected ending. While the goal is to get your competitor to spit out the water post-slap, Kat’s hilarious spirit brought Liz to her bursting point even before the slap occurred. And just like that, it was round two. While Liz continued to win in rock-paper-scissors game after game, slapping Kat (lightly) in the face with her tortilla, Kat held her own, keeping the water in her mouth. After several attempts to get Kat to break, it was finally Kat’s time to turn the tables with the tortilla. After one final slap from Kat, Liz couldn’t handle the hilarious hit, spitting her water out again, declaring Kat the final winner.


Liz: “I honestly forgot the rules of the game and I thought I had won, but clearly I had lost.”

Kat: “I love Liz, but I knew I was willing to do whatever it took to win, even though I feel so bad!”
