This year has been full of exciting challenges that have allowed everyone, including celebrities to take part in hashtags like #JuJuOnTheBeat, #WaterFlippingChallenge and now the #MannequinChallenge.
The women of Destiny Child proved to be a strong contender for taking home the challenge crown when they presented their version of the challenge via Kelly Rowland’s social pages. High Schoolers first brought the challenge to light when the creative group froze to the throwback, “Ice Cream Paint Job” by Dorrough.
But it was Rae Sremmurd who helped catapult the challenge into the social ethos last week (Nov.3rd) when they executed it perfectly before performing their hit song, “Black Beatles.” With this challenge taking over the internet within less than a week, there have been many takes on what it means to look like a mannequin.
Check out the best challenges we’ve seen so far below.
NFL Network Crew
The NFL crew took on the mannequin challenge in a fun way by having the entire studio freeze. It even features one of the members holding still with a football in their hand while in a bent position, because sports.

Ayesha and Stephen Curry
America’s favorite Golden State couple took on the challenge in a way that was true to their heart. The couple who is always known for cooking up the good stuff took the challenge to a restaurant. Look closely as you might miss Steph who is subtly sharing shots with the bartender and of course Ayesha who is in a chef’s attire.

Kevin Hart & Friends
It wouldn’t be a challenge unless the hilarious Kevin Hart put his twist on it. The comedian took his challenge to the gym with his friends. As seen in the video, they all look like fitness mannequins hard at work. Especially Hart who is in a squat position, staying still while lifting weights with a funny facial expression.

The comedian took a simple approach to the challenge by going into a men’s clothing store and posing with the mannequins themselves. Can you tell the difference between the mannequins and Blackson?

McDonald’s – Fast Food Edition
I’m lovin’ it! All of the workers get in formation except the woman at the very last second who didn’t seem to get the memo. Other than that, from people freezing from flipping burgers and a full circle of McDonald’s restaurant, this one is one for the books.

High School Girls Basketball Team
This all-girls basketball team put in real effort when doing the challenge. There is variety in this challenge which is what makes it worth mentioning. From a girl recording to two people about to high five and of course the rest engaged in the sport, it deserves a thumbs up.

All Alone Edition
In this All Alone edition, it features dolls as mannequins. There are no better mannequins than dolls themselves who can stay still. Of course, there is someone at the end who does a pretty good job pretending to be still until he bursts out into laughter.

Pole Dancing Edition
These dancers have strong stamina! They were able to hold still for the challenge for over a minute while on the poles, in the air, and upside down. I believe a round of applause is in order.
