Let's be truthful for a second.
The only reason Tomi Lahren has been amplified over the last couple of years is that to some people she's pretty.

I have to wonder if Noah sends all of his guests cupcakes after a show. I wouldn't even be shocked if, by next week, the two of them are dating. Sometimes people are into sleeping with the enemy.
