Q: What is the craziest thing you have ever done?
A: Chasing a 1,000 pound steer across four lanes of oncoming traffic! While at home alone, I got a call that Brodie was loose and was down the street with police officers surrounding him. Needless to say he and the police officers were very frightened, and once I got close to him he ran across four lanes of traffic and I had to run after him. Luckily we both got across without getting hit and I finally caught him after he slipped on the asphalt.

Q: Do you cook and/or bake anything? If so, what are your special dishes?
A: I absolutely love to bake! It is a hobby I inherited from my mom who is an awesome baker. Everyone always loves my fudge brownies and dirt cake.

Q: If you were handed 10 million dollars, what would you splurge on?
A: After paying off my school debts, I would set up my own charity that would enable terminally ill pediatric patients to have the means to do whatever they want as a last wish, and then I would go on a huge shopping spree with my mom.

Q: If you could meet one celebrity, who would it be and why?
A: I would really like to have the opportunity to meet Carrie Underwood, she and I both share a love for country music. Not to mention that I would love to know the secret to how she curls her hair because, I have been trying to style my hair like hers for over a year. I'm interested to find out how she has stayed true to herself while living within in the public eye.

Q: What is unique about you (something no other contestant can say about themselves)?
A: As a skin cancer survivor, I was asked to speak in front of the Florida Senate on a bill concerning the use of tanning beds for minors. The story received nationwide media coverage and I received calls and letters from teens thanking me for what I did.
