Q: What is the craziest thing you have ever done?
A: Parasailing off a small boat 50 feet in the air over the Florida ocean. I was petrified of heights and my cousin actually forced me to go parasailing with her. After a while of begging, I finally gave in and overcame my fear. I feel accomplished in knowing that I overcame my fear, and I now know that the sky is the limit.

Q: Do you cook and/or bake anything? If so, what are your special dishes?
A: I am not really the best cook, the microwave is my best friend, but since my job at the bakery I've come to really love baking. My favorite and best recipe is my "Ooey, Gooey" Chocolate Cake.

Q: If you were handed 10 million dollars, what would you splurge on?
A: Besides my two favorite cars, the 330xi BMW, and pink Lamborghini, I would travel to every country and see as many places as I could, stopping of course to pick up a souvenier at each place. I would then buy my parents and myself our dream home and build my brother a football field in the backyard.

Q: If you could meet one celebrity, who would it be and why?
A: The greatest honor would be be to meet the President. He holds the most powerful position in the country and to have the opportunity to be in his presence would be unforgettable. Secondly, President Obama has broken barriers that people thought could never be done. I would love to ask him, how he overcame those obstacles that faced him.

Q: What is unique about you (something no other contestant can say about themselves)?
A: One thing I don't think any other contestant can say about themselves is that I can take my right arm and stretch it over my head, under my chin and up to touch my right ear.
