I love my school, but I almost went to:
Jackson Community College, but I need a university degree for my major and obviously couldn't give up cheerleading. So naturally, I went with the decision to be a Bronco.

My best physical feature is:
My lips!

If I had to watch one movie on loop for ever, it would be:
The Notebook.

If you looked at the "most played" songs on my iPod, you'd see a lot of: Audioslave! I love running to all their songs.

My worst habit is:
Swearing. I smile like a saint and swear like a sailor.

My gameday superstitions are:
I never wear matching socks on game day.

I'd love to trade places for a day with:
Jessica Alba.
I would love to know how it feels to be that gorgeous.

The talent I'd most like to have that I don't possess is:
To break dance.

These three things top my bucket list:
To get into the Guinness Book of World Records, buy my parents a cottage on a lake and visit every monument in Spain.

I'd want my last meal to be:
Mashed potatoes with a ton of butter and coffee with lots of creamer.

The most embarrassing thing that's ever happened to me during a game is:
We were pumping up the football guys right as they were barreling out of the gate onto the field, as they were charging at us. There was a mixture of the cheer team, dance team and color guard all just scrambling off the field hoping the players wouldn't trample us. At about the time we reach the touchdown posts, we are supposed to tumble, but with all of the people I freaked out and bailed mid-handspring and backward rolled. I jumped up only to see another one of my teammates pointing and laughing. Luckily though, I don't think that many other people saw in the midst of chaos.

Three things I'd take to a desert island are:
A lifetime supply of Hooters chicken strips with blue cheese, my puppy and my iPod.

My favorite sport and professional sports teams are:
Hockey and the Detroit Redwings.

My one guilty pleasure is:
Hershey's Cookies 'n' Creme. Mmmmm. So good.

My celebrity crush is:
Adam Sandler

Five people I'd like to have dinner with (living or dead) are:
, Will Smith, George Lopez, Tyra Banks and Adam Sandler.

My friends would be surprised to know that I:
Can almost speak fluently en Espaņol and I can hula hoop on my knees on a table in a circle.

The next risk I want to take is:
To go white-water rafting.

The reality show I'd do best on is:
Well, I would love to be on America's Next Top Model, but I'm only 5-foot-1, so I think I'd do best on American Idol.

The worst date I've ever been on was:
When I brought my date over to meet my parents before we went to dinner, my dad brought out his shot gun and started cleaning it. Already scared, my date looked around and noticed my dad's target in the shape of a human with a red dot on the heart. He then asked my father why he was cleaning his gun and my dad replied with a sly look and said, "Just protection..." After that he never asked me on a date again and all the other guys were scared to ask me out.
