Chicken tenders are truly one of the world's greatest engineering marvels of man-chicken teamwork All the fun of fried chicken with none of the bones to remind you that it was once a cluckin' creature – That's why I majored in engineering We never did anything with chicken though It was quite a disappointment, that's why I'm doing this now

– When do we get to make chicken fingers? – But which chicken strip reaches the tip of craftsmanship? There's only one way to find out It's time for ♪ Chickity fingers the fingered chicken ♪ ♪ Have a guess as to which one we're lickin' ♪ We're going to be blindly tasting six rounds of fast food chicken fingers and ranking them on a scale of one to 10 We're gonna take the average of our two scores to determine the best one – Okay but we're also gonna be playing against each other to see who can accurately finger the chicken finger restaurant from which the chicken finger originated and whoever gets the most restaurants correctly will assume the role of the Masked Finger – Uh-oh

(chuckles) The tenders we're gonna be tasting are KFC – Popeye's – Raising Cane's – McDonald's – Church's Chicken

– And Carl's Jr – All right let's get rippin' into some drive-through chicken – Yeah – [Rhett and Link] Round one – As you can see, we can't

– And all the chicken tenders will be brought to us on the patent pending Chicken Finger Bringer Thinger Bring it in! – Oh yeah There it is Oh that's a crunchy one – Oh wow

– Very crunchy finger – Now I'm not a chicken finger God I never get chicken fingers – Oh really? – No – Sadly Bojangles' is not in our repertoire today

It was so hard for us to get ahold of it But I just wanted to give 'em a shout-out – The first thing I'm thinking is I should eat chicken finger more, that's pretty good – Okay then what do you rate it? You really like it? – I don't really like it, but I like it – I don't love it, I think it's going too hard with the crunchy

That's the outer fried– – Too much crunch, huh? – Yeah I think you can have too much crunch, so on a scale of, am I going scale of one to five or one to 10? – One to 10 – Okay I'm gonna give this It tastes good though, I'm gonna give it a six

– Oh you know what, I was thinking six – I know – I enjoyed it, but I think that you can do better chicken fingers – I know where this is from 100% – [Stevie] Okay three– – Whoa, really? You know? – Oh yeah

– Okay – [Stevie] Two, one – Popeye's – Church's Chicken (chuckles) – Since when you got a Church's finger? – Remember when we used to go to Pullen Park? I'd always swing by the Church's Chicken before we'd go over there

– Okay – [Rhett and Link] Round two – Bring it in – Give me that finger There it is

– Wow, okay – This one, it seems to be a more honest cut of meat – Huh! Yeah that first one was dishonest, that's what I was thinking the whole time – I'm saying it– – It's like a strip of chicken – It's a strip of chicken that seems less processed than the previous one

– I don't disagree with that – It's higher quality I actually don't think it tastes better though – Can you bring it back in 'cause I agree with your assessment but I don't think it tastes great – [Link] Yeah

– Oh I got to a juicy part – Oh you likin' it better? – There's a juicy part in the middle – Well I didn't get a juicy part in the middle Is it like what, like a Gusher? – Yeah bring Link's Gusher in – It's like a gushing chicken finger? – Show him the Gusher in the middle

He's gotta go deeper You know what I'm talking about, you get a little gush? – I didn't get a gush, man – Ah, wrong chicken That's an honest gushing chicken But I feel like they could have done more

I think they're trying to let the chicken sing a little too much – Yep, yep, and it's just clucking – Okay I've got a little bit of a shot in the dark here – What's your rating though? I give it a four – I give it a five

– Oh okay, I know where this is from too – Really? – Yeah – [Stevie] Three, two, one – Raising Cane's – Carl's Jr

Never been to Raising Cane's – That's why I said it 'cause I've never been there – [Rhett and Link] Round three – Rhett I wanna tell you regardless of the outcome, I'm having a great time – Oh yeah I mean we're just eating tenders

– We're livin' the friggin' dream – We're having people bring us tenders– – Look at us – On sticks I don't even know what it looks like I haven't even seen it, that's the beautiful thing

– What if in first grade Miss Locklear said, "Okay class, you two guys in the back, "you're gonna make a living eating tenders on the internet" – I would have been like, "What's a tender?" – I'd be like, "What's the internet?" – All right bring it in – Ow There it is That was a pointy one

Mm (Rhett chuckles) There's a little something in this – That's a good piece of chicken! – Something in this batter, it's good And different – Oh, hold on

Bring it back – What is this? Hmm That is tasty I hear some weird noises over there What's happening? – I stole the tender

– You took the whole thing? – Yeah – You like it that much? – Oh man – You gonna give it a 10? – No – You gonna give it a nine? – That's not how this works – You gonna give it an eight? Or are you going with a seven? – I'm gonna give it a nine

– I think it is a great chicken tender and I don't think I've ever tasted it before Man – I hope that's not like– – I'm gonna give a nine too, it was really good – [Stevie] Okay ready to guess? – And I'm– – Ugh, I don't– – Man – Yes? – [Stevie] Okay, three, two, one

– KFC? – Popeye's – It might be Popeye's It feels like a place that's dedicated to chicken – I didn't taste 11 herbs – I thought I tasted at least 10

– [Rhett and Link] Round four – Okay tenderize us (Link purrs) Oh, mm – [Link] Okay – Whoa

That's crunchy, man – Yeah that could do some damage You could like put that on the tip of a spear and use it as an abrasive – Hmm, it has a familiar taste A little too salty

– I think it tastes pretty good though – It's good though, I mean all of them have tasted good – The meat itself is very tender Man I've had this before I don't think KFC is that crunchy

I associated KFC with more of a softness – Yeah – As well as the herbs and spices – That is a good tender though – I've had this before

– I'm gonna give it a six – I really like this I'm gonna give it an eight – Okay I got my guess

– Man, where is this from? – [Stevie] Three, two, one – Popeye's – McDonald's? It can't be McDonald's – [Rhett and Link] Round five – Love me tender

This one, very unique taste I would say it's almost like a burnt taste in the flour – A little dry Doesn't taste very honest – I'm not lovin' this chicken tender

– No ♪ I'm not lovin' it ♪ Maybe it's McDonald's – Is that a hint because that's what I'm thinking – Oh yeah? – I'm gonna give this one, this is my least favorite I've had so far, I'm gonna give it a five – I'm gonna give it a four

– It's a little dense and it's a little, I don't know, I don't like the way this is all working together Tastes a little processed – To me it's just got a burnt taste, period I mean that's the problem – Burnt period, I'm done

– Oh gosh, what am I gonna do? – Ready? – Yeah – [Stevie] Three, two, one – [Both] McDonald's – Well we agree – Yeah we do

– [Rhett and Link] Round six – Last one – The final finger – Okay It's a flatter one

This one's much more honest than most of the others as well – Yeah this is honest, can I get some more? – Mm, I don't love it I don't hate it I kinda, I kinda six it Let me have another little nibble

Come on now, come on – I actually am fond of this one I'm like eight fond of this one I like it, I like the honestness and there's a pepperiness in the batter They're not trying to overdo it too much

Yeah, seems like high quality chicken, I'm gonna give it a eight – Oh wow an eight – Yeah – All right I'm ready to guess – [Stevie] Okay, three, two, one

– [Both] Carl's Jr – Oh we agree, let's remove the masks Come back into the real world where people don't feed you chicken fingers just because you open your mouth, and let's find out what you already know Who won – Guys I'm really proud of you today
