It is time once again for Drew vs. You, and this week's challenger left me head over heels, in pain.

This week on Drew vs. You, we are at Washington-Marion high school. I'm here with Aaliyah Ardoin, she's a sophomore and she has challenged me to a tumbling contest. Now, what do I need to do to be a successful tumbler? 

Just try hard? 

Aaliyah started taking gymnastics when she was 5 years old. She placed 7th in a national competition at age 10, and last summer, she won the jump-off and the tumble-off at the McNeese cheerleading camp. And this was just a warmup.

I - N - D - I - A - N - S.

Okay, so I think we've found the sport where I have absolutely no hope of ever getting any better. Aaliyah, do I have any future as a tumbler? 

No.

Not even the toe touch? 

Not really.

Okay, I guess that does it for this week's Drew vs. You.
