Q: What is the craziest thing you have ever done?
A: Until I looked up the 40 ft pole, "The Leap of Faith" at Stand Out Productions, I never realized I would be so afraid of heights! The climb was not too difficult but reaching the top was a different story. Trying to position myself before the jump made my heart race with fear. At that moment, I had no choice but to close my eyes, jump, and PRAY for it to be over! This by far was the craziest thing I have ever done. I got through it, but I certainly would not be the first in line to do it again!

Q: Do you cook and/or bake anything? If so, what are your special dishes?
A: I love to cook! I first started cooking from Rachael Ray's "30 Minute Meals." My family enjoys when I cook chicken fajitas along with my specialty - guacamole!

Q: If you were handed 10 million dollars, what would you splurge on?
A: After the loss of my Dad's job, my parents were forced to sell our home, so the first thing I would do with 10 million dollars would be to purchase a new home for my parents and then I would splurge on a white Ford Mustang convertible!

Q: If you could meet one celebrity, who would it be and why?
A: I would like to meet Adam Lambert from American Idol. He has an amazing voice with a background in musical theater, which is something we have in common.

Q: What is unique about you (something no other contestant can say about themselves)?
A: I am comfortable and confident with the person that I am and therefore I can appreciate and embrace others for who they are.
