Secrets We Learned About 'The Project' On Its 10th Birthday

There's nothing we love more than a trip down memory lane, especially when it involves blooper reels, on-air LOLs, and learning about off camera moments.

The Project's 10th Birthday episode brought us all that and more with old co-hosts, guests and an open bar in the background just to add that sprinkle of mayhem.

A lot has happened in the last decade on the beloved news/comedy show which none of us can believe first starting airing all the way back in 2009, so we tried to keep track of some of the best 'Project' ~moments~ from the anniversary bash.

What a time!

During a live cross from the UK, Lisa told Carrie she'd be bringing her home a  souvenir -- a one-piece swimsuit that featured Prince Harry's face, and strategically placed beard, on the fabric.

Waleed's eyebrows rose into the stratosphere and Lisa proclaimed her undying love when Carrie cackled and made a cheeky joke about Brazilian waxes.
