1. What movie can you watch over and over without getting tired of it?

MC: "I could watch Anchorman over and over because it makes me laugh every time I watch it."

2. If someone narrated your life, who would you want to be the narrator?

MC: “I would want it to be Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell) because he'd turn everything into a joke."


3. What mythical creature do you wish existed?

MC: "I wish a pegasus existed. I love horses and I just think that'd be really cool."

4. What food have you never eaten but would really like to try?

MC: “I've never had sushi before but I really want to try it because all my friends love it."



5. What's the most annoying noise?

MC: “My whistle is the most annoying noise. I've been working on my whistle for several years, but all I can do is a really high pitched sound. My coach even banned me from whistling at practice."

6. What topic could you spend hours talking about?

MC: "I could spend hours talking about Star Wars. There are endless Star Wars quotes."

7. What's the most unusual place you have ever visited?

MC: “China is the most unusual place I've been to so far because everything is so different from home."


8. What language do you wish you could speak?

9. What weird food combination do you really enjoy?

MC: :I love chicken and waffles drizzled with hot sauce and syrup."
