JFF 2013 Title Goes to UI-Bipeds Hybrid "Jennifer Hudson"

The two top speakers in last month's nationals, Invi Atmanegara from Binus International and Universitas Indonesia's Roderick Sibarani, teamed up as "Jennifer Hudson" and won the 2013 Just For Fun debate, which had movies-themed motions and required participants to use names of celebrities as their team's calling sign. Invi retained the same title that she claimed last year with a fellow schoolmate.

#2 Jennifer Hudson proposed the final motion "This House regrets the poor's successful entrance to Elysium" and outwitted #4 Jennifer Aniston (Magreta Kailla Adenta/UI & Ahmad Naufal Dai/Ex-UI), #5 Steve Irwin (Dennys Kapa/UI & Fauzan Reza Maulana/ITB) and #6 Angelina Jolie (Nisrina Praharso/UI & Bramesada Prasastyoga/Ex-UI). UI's Boby Andika Ruitang topped the speaker tab. The competition also handed out a prize for the funniest speaker that went to Dimas Aditya from Universitas Padjadjaran.

JFF is an annual tournament held by EDSUI at the start of an academic year which employs zany motions. Futuristic motions featured in last year's edition. Despite its quirky nature, the event usually attracts top national debaters.
