The Jonas Brothers seem to have let their competitive nature get the better of them yet again as they set out to determine who the almost athletic amongst them are. The musicians have set aside their current profession to promote the Tokyo Olympics in a peculiar yet hilarious way.

As a promotion for NBC streaming the entire event, the Brothers set out to live in a nutshell, the life of an Olympic athlete. They will compete in various sports and disciplines such as races, cycling, hurdles, and more to determine who the most athletic one is.

As part of this entire promotion, the three released a sneak peek into their live Question and Answer session. In this, they were posed with some straightforward questions about the Games. While many may not expect much out of this, it surely was entertainment, to say the least.

The first question posed to the Brothers- Joe, Nick, and Kevin- was to name as many Olympic sports as they could. Collectively, they could only name 15 out of the 400 plus events. Joe Jonas jokingly named Beer Pong as one of his guesses! 

Joe Jonas named Alaska as a country that hosted the Olympics

Although, this wasn’t the only questionable part of the Q&A. The Brothers were asked to name countries that have previously hosted the Olympics. Given their ages, Rio 2016, London 2012, Beijing 2008, Athens 2004, and Sydney 2000 come to mind. 

The three started with Montreal. The 1976 Sumer Olympics were held in Montreal but Kevin Jonas quickly corrected thr two and named Canada as the ‘country’. Greece, the USA, and Brazil were also named along with a desperate call for Tokyo which didn’t count. However, the moment arrived when Joe named Alaska. 

A state belonging to the USA, Alaska has never held any edition of the Olympics, summer or winter. There is the World Eskimo-Indian Olympics (WEIO), but that’s besides to topic of discussion. “That’s…no,” Nick replied to his brother disappointingly.

The Jonas Brothers were then asked to name as many Olympic athletes as they could. Michale Phelps, Serena Williams, Shawn Johnson, Katie Ledecky, Shaun White, Lindsey Vonn, Nastia Liukin, Sanya Richard-Ross, all of whom represented the USA. 

One would think of Usain Bolt in that list, but the Brothers gave it their best shot. Fans are eager to see the trio compete amongst each other in what is expected to be a comedy overload. ‘Olympic Dreams’ will be streamed on NBC on July 21, and there are high expectations of the Jonas Brothers and their athletic prowess.
