  • Mia Rodreigez — The girly girl of the High Fives, who is interested in celebrity gossip.
  • Stella Jugelmann — The strategist of the High Fives as well as Leo's older sister. Her strategies often foreshadow the outcome of each game.

  • Brilliant, but Lazy: Mike would sleep and Mia would read one of her magazines.
  • Butt-Monkey: Both Leo and Mike. Tony slips into this sometimes.
  • Expy:
    • Of Foot 2 Rue, obviously.
    • Someone who looks like an older version of Sally Bollywood appears in one episode.
