"So here's 3 ridiculous shots for you to choose from. Tell me which one is your favorite (photo 1, 2, or 3) and what the 'thirst trap' caption should be."

"Just completely over the top and ridiculous, but who gives a damn!" Brooks added before telling the internet to "feast your eyes on this senseless carousel!"
