Jay is the second character, unlocked at level four. When grinding, if there are any nearby coins, Jay can pick them up.
Evie is the third character, unlocked at level seven. Instead of front flips, she does backflips, which earn 200 points per, as opposed to the standard 100. Her double flips are worth 1000, as opposed to the standard 500. Simply put, her flips are worth double.
