TYE: So I've got my high end, I've got my low end. This is tough, because, how do you fill it out? I have my eye on a couple of picks, but my heart is telling me that I gotta go with Zac Hanson.

JASON: Zac Hanson! The young gun.

TYE: I'm getting a little MMMbop in there.

AMAYA: All right. I'm also going a little new-school, and I'm going to throw in some Max George, from the Wanted.

BRAD: Good choice.

WILL: So far, I've got two great dancers, but my band needs a bad boy. I'm choosing Zayn from One Direction.

AMAYA: Is he… the bad boy?

WILL: I don't know. I think so. Doesn't he look like the baddest one? I'm making him the bad boy.

JASON: Very surprising turn of events. Erika's up.

TYE: Joey Fatone is just sitting there, Erika.

ERIKA: And he will stay sitting there. I'm going with Nick Jonas.

JASON: The youngest Jonas!

WILL: You just made things tough for Amaya.

JASON: I honestly think Erika's band might be my favorite so far. You have Wanya, Slim from 112, and now Nick Jonas, in the same band. This is tough for me now -- I really wanted Max George.

TYE: Oh, wait, wait, wait!

JASON: It's not your turn, man.

TYE: No, wait. Hold on. I chose the wrong Hanson.

ERIKA: So we're going back?

TYE: I meant to choose Taylor Hanson. I put Zac first, but Taylor is who I need. I'm glad I got that sorted out.

ERIKA: Thank goodness no one else grabbed Taylor Hanson.

JASON: So wait, why Taylor over Zac? Why is it that urgent?

TYE: There's a HUGE difference between Zac and Taylor, dude. And if you don't know what that difference is, then we shouldn't be doing this.

JASON: Okay, so now that that's settled, I'm going to pick a veteran. He lives on Dream Street. I got Jesse McCartney. His new single's pretty hot, by the way.

WILL: Nick Carter is just sitting there, by the way.

BRAD: Yeah, he is just sitting there. Okay. In no particular order, I'm going with Robbie Williams

JASON: Good choice. International superstar.


BRAD: Yes, international superstar. And next, I'm going with Liam Payne.

WILL: Pretty high heartthrob factor.

JASON: Okay, so I think I want to go old-school again. Nick Lachey is just sitting there. I see Nick Lachey, and you know what? He's joining my team. That's a dream far beyond Dream Street.

TYE: I'm trying to figure out which One Direction members are left…

ERIKA: Hmmm…

JASON: Erika, I want to point out that there is one Boyz II Men member left.

ERIKA: Oh, Nathan's left? That's kind of sad. Honestly? I can't choose between Drew Lachey and Ashley from O-Town.

TYE: Drew Lachey?

ERIKA: That's the one I liked when I was younger! I'm going with Ashley from O-Town.

JASON: Oh, I'm so mad. As soon as I picked Nick Lachey, I was like, "I should have picked Ashley Parker Angel."

ERIKA: The fact that you know his full name…

WILL: Okay, I'm just going to pick up this power player that's still on the board. I'm picking up Nick Carter.

TYE: Good call.

AMAYA: I'm up. Lance Bass, please.

JASON: Fair. Okay Tye, you have two picks in a row, and they are your final picks.

TYE: This is challenging because I'm basically rounding out the rest of the boy band.

ERIKA: I dare you to choose someone from All-4-One.

WILL: Wait, which Jonas Brother has been taken?

TYE: Nick, only Nick. Everyone is eyeing Kevin right now. Oh wow, this is super tough. I'm going to go with Joe Jonas for my fourth pick.

BRAD: I was hoping he would slip, man. That's definitely who I wanted to round out my team.


TYE: I feel like I'm pretty strong right now. If I stopped right here, I would definitely have an arsenal of hits. However, I feel like, rounding it out, the bad boy is important, and I'm a little squeaky-clean right now. I'm gonna go for an old-school bad boy, and throw in Donnie Wahlberg.

JASON: Great pick. "Blue Bloods" star Donnie Wahlberg.

AMAYA: It's my turn, and I'm going to seize the opportunity. I'm going to go with Zac Hanson. Tye let him go, and I need a musician, and some hair.

WILL: Okay, final pick. I have to round it out -- I have a Latin star, an R&B star, I have a British star who's the bad boy, and I have a clean American star. I'm going to go for the Middle America housewives. I'm picking Kevin Jonas.

AMAYA: Bravo!

TYE: For a second, I thought that Kevin would be left on the playing field.

WILL: I had to make sure all the Jonas Brothers were picked up.

JASON: Erika, you're up. There are still three 112 members on the board, including "Q."

TYE: Before you pick, I want to point out that only one member of New Edition has been chosen.

ERIKA: You're right. Which one is the creepy one? I can't decide. I want to go with Lil Fizz.

JASON: Is Lil Fizz the final selection?

ERIKA: No. I think I'm going to go with Michael Bivins. You get the New Edition songs, you get the Bell Biv Devoe songs. I would love to see the boy band I created.

JASON: Okay, it's my last pick. I also feel like I new a bad boy -- you got Harry leading the way, and it's very clean from there. There are not that many bad boys left. I might take a Wanted guy.

WILL: Amaya already stole Max.

JASON: Nathan Sykes is the best singer, though. You know what? Screw it. I'm going Chris Kirkpatrick.

TYE: That's a very controversial pick.

JASON: It's the dreadlocks, sure, but also the JC connection on my team. I feel like that's a strong pick.

BRAD: Final pick. I'm currently deciding between all the members of Big Time Rush.

TYE: Dude, Ralph Tresvant from New Edition is just sitting there.

JASON: Also worth pointing out: no Mindless Behavior members chosen. No Roc Royal. Also, J-Boog from B2K is available.

BRAD: No, I'm definitely picking someone from Big Time Rush, because they can all sing individual parts and are all talented people. I am leaning towards Logan Henderson. Definite heartthrob. Give me Logan.
