This Tenacious College Student Could Teach A Master Class In How To Win At Musical Chairs

If she asks you for your seat … you better give it to her.

College students do some pretty amazing things with the time they have on their hands. They plot elaborate pranks, cram six naps into a day, or, in the case of a one internet-famous Maryland student, hone their musical chairs skills to the point that they have no rival.

Though this game of musical chairs served as a mere exhibition to entertain a Terrapins basketball crowd, it was clear that this competitive student showed up to win. In the tradition of MMA grapplers, she finds her advantage once her opponent is put on the floor. From that point forward, it’s less a matter of moving her competition and more a function of ripping the chair out from underneath the hapless also-ran.


Of course, this is a risky strategy when the adrenaline is pumping and the seat in question is a folding chair, ready to snap a player’s fingers without any notice whatsoever. Fortunately, despite a winded victor and a runner-up lying prone on the ground, the players were no worse for wear.

Still, this video will certainly establish the champion as a young woman who’s not to be trifled with when she says you’re sitting in her seat.

In August, the Recording Academy hired their first female CEO, Deborah Dugan. Ten days before the Grammys, Dugan was placed on administrative leave for misconduct allegations after a female employee said Dugan was "abusive" and created a "toxic and intolerable" work environment. However, Dugan says she was actually removed from her position for complaining to human resources about sexual harassment, pay disparities, and conflicts of interest in the award show's nomination process.

Just five days before the Grammys, Dugan filed a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and her claims are many. Dugan says she was paid less than former CEO Neil Portnow. In 2018, Portnow received criticism for saying women need to "step up" when only two female acts won Grammys. Portnow decided to not renew his contract shortly after. Dugan says she was also asked to hire Portnow as a consultant for $750,000 a year, which she refused to do.
