This Girl Took Jimmy Fallon To Her Sorority’s Formal

This Girl Took Jimmy Fallon To Her Sorority's Formal

The following is an actual text conversation I had with my sorority’s special events chair in the days leading up to formal.

“Hey, are you bringing a date to formal?”

“Stop pressuring me.”

“Veronica, I need to submit the final list of names to the venue, and I can’t tell them there will be 212 people and one shower head as you’ve written on the signup sheet.”

“You’re being a real bitch, you know that?”

“Are you drunk right now?”

“Are YOU drunk right now?”

“It’s 2pm on a Tuesday.”

“Stop judging me. I’ll find a date.”

So you see, the anxiety that comes with searching for the perfect date is real. And while my shower head was non-portable and inappropriate — possible grounds for termination, actually — there are fictional date options that won’t get you in trouble, and make for much better pictures.

A Phi Sigma Sigma named Niki Russo at Montclair State University brought Jimmy Fallon to her sorority’s Gatsby themed formal this year. Sort of. The two made a beautiful pair.

He took cute candids with her.

Took some time to pal around with her friends’ dates.

And snuggled up close when the night came to an end.

And as for their relationship now? Everything’s coming up roses.

I’m rooting for Niki and Jimmy until the day I die.
