Tin and Christian, waiting game
Foy, nervous AF
Carly comes through with the goods
Better believe Zach snagged one
The beautiful women in Kader’s life. So proud
All the good fools
All we were missing was the man of the hour
Double E, on deck
Stella imagines her own pro party some day
Be here sooner than you think
Test driving with a backside boneless. Stella approved!
The suspense was killing us!
And then …. Kader burst forth!
Trust us, he’s in there somewhere
Buried in all that goodwill
Get over here!
The proper picture
He got a little emotional. Totally to be expected
Bounced back tho
Remember when Rowan was the kid on the team?
Next stop on the hug train
Finally … time to eat!
Chicken and waffles and a seven-ply plate
Neck drew it. We’ll let him tell the story
He’ll be fine
Kirby sparks the Boss’s imagination
A nod of approval from the East. Take comfort in that
Mike from Lottie’s sidles up for a John Hancock
Unable to keep his face out of the cake
You only turn pro once!
Best just to bask in it
You need a napkin, dog?
Hey, free cake, am I right?
Yep, a happy day to cherish
These kids. These kids are alright
One more group shot on the way out
Congrats, Kader! You made it!
