Hi everyone! After some great matchups yesterday, we move on to the Midwest Region. That's right, the Midwest Region is going up... on a Tuesday. Sorry.

(1) Kevin Durant vs (16) KFOR Social Media Bandit
(8) Street Outlaws vs (9) Lawton Rappers
(4) Sir John Michael vs (13) The Judicial Branch
(5) Jack White's Guacamole vs (12) Hipster Food Foragers


(1) Kevin Durant vs (16) KFOR Social Media Bandit


(1) Kevin Durant

Who he is: Badass basketball playing man.

(16) KFOR Social Media Bandit

Who they are: The Twitter account of your mom's favorite local news station

Weaknesses: You've already read all those stories on Twitter.



(8) Street Outlaws vs (9) Lawton Rappers


(8) Street Outlaws

Who they are: Reality show stars who aren't actually outlaws and often don't drive on streets

Strengths: An... erm "passionate" fan base.

Weaknesses: Actual real professional racers hate it.

Who they are: Rappers... from Lawton.

Sir John Michael

(4) Sir John Michael

Who he is: King of the school bus.

Strengths: "If life gives you lemons, fuck life" is my new TM mantra.

(12) Hipster Food Foragers

What it is: The extremely media savvy people behind the restaurant "Nani."
