During rehearsals, one of Ari’s team members, Ryleigh Plank, shared her shock and delight at meeting Kristin, noting that she had just been watching her TikToks.
“Oh, I got my Slurpee!” recalled Kristin, a devoted 7/11 fan.
“I love the video, I think I know it by heart,” Ari chimed in, before launching into her pitch-perfect Cheno: “She’s like, ‘It’s National Slurpee Day. I’m very excited. It’s my favourite day of the year!'”
“That was dead on!” Kristin said, cracking up.

On Monday, a source told ET that Ari has been loving her first season on “The Voice” so far, despite the sometimes agonizing decisions she has to make as a coach during the Battle Rounds.
“She has looked up to the coaches for a while and she and Kelly have really formed a strong friendship,” the source noted. “Ariana loves that this allows people to see her talents beyond her singing — she’s a writer and producer, and very knowledgeable about music. [She] is also having fun and loves joking around with the coaches.”
