Ube is a purple yam that people often confuse with taro. It's got a vanilla, nutty flavour.

Meet Erica — a singer you may recognise from your FYP; Angelo — known for his funny videos and voice impressions; Arville — the most trusted physio on TikTok; and Dominic who is known for his vibrant makeup looks on Instagram!

The ranking method follows our scientifically accurate tier system: Super God (3 points), God (2 points), OK (1 point), Meh (0 points) and Nah (-1 points).
