The founding members of The Tenderloins came together in their freshman year of high school. When choosing a name for their band, they decided to use a word that would not only be silly, but would make people feel uncomfortable. Well, “nets” are obviously fine.

Brian Quinn’s Girlfriend, Ex Fiance
In her career as an artist, Q has only been associated with one woman, Emily Amick. Emily was a makeup artist on Impractical Jokers. The two were seen together on several occasions in public and there was speculation that they got engaged.
However, things turned sour for Q when Emily had an affair with another man. She later married the man with whom she had this affair. Since then, Q has not been associated with any other women.
