Every year people predict who will win the Super Bowl. Right now, Las Vegas odds have the Baltimore Ravens beating the San Francisco 49ers.
But the "GMA LIVE!" anchors decided to go about picking the big winner a little bit differently. They turned to a monkey.
Senior biologist T'Noya Gonzales Skyped with Josh Elliott, Sam Champion and Elizabeth Vargas from Moody's Gardens in Galveston, Texas, to let Frankie the Saki monkey make his pick for the winner.
"Frankie is a little bit of an artist," Gonzales said. "At Moody's Gardens, we treat our animals and enrich them thoroughly so we make sure they're stimulated. We basically give them the free will to paint with their fingers on the iPad and that's how they pick."
They put two iPads in front of Frankie, one with the Ravens logo and the other with the Niners logo. And Frankie picked the San Francisco 49ers to take home the win for Super Bowl XLVII.
"Forget all of your stats, forget all of your knowledge, forget everything you've done with your entire career at ESPN," Champion joked with Elliott. "We actually don't want to know who you think is going to win. We want to know who the caffeinated monkey picks."
But Frankie the Saki monkey isn't the only animal making picks for the big game.
Princess, a 26-year old Bactrian camel who lives at Popcorn Park Zoo in Lacey Township, N.J., has her money on the Baltimore Ravens.
"She picked the Baltimore Ravens. I guess she picked the older brother," the zoo's General Manager John Bergmann said of the sibling rivalry this year between brothers, John Harbaugh, head coach of the Ravens, and Jim Harbaugh, head coach of the 49ers.
Elizabeth Vargas is siding with Frankie, since she's "been a 49er fan since way back when Joe Montana was the quarterback."
And as for Champion, he'll just "be watching for the commercials."
