If you weren’t on X-Play and Cheat,
what would you be doing?
Wishing I was on X-Play and Cheat :)
You’ve been an NFL Cheerleader, a TV and
Radio host, an American Idol semi-finalist
and the singer in a band. what can’t you do?
Let's see...draw, surf, speak French,
standing back flips, sew....we could be
here all day. There's a lot I can't do. I
think the next thing I'm going
to learn is chess. I'm tired of
If you were stranded on a desert
island with only one gadget, what
would it be?
Is the Bible a gadget? I guess not :) Then I would
have to go with an iPhone...I'd have my camera,
music, photos, and hopefully AT&T would have a
cell tower on the island so I could access the inter-
net and call people.
Do you have a favorite
The Contra Code. I know, I know. All you have
to know is up, up, down down, left,
right, left, right, B, A, but who wouldn't
want 30 lives?
You were on American Idol right?
What was that like?
It was cool. Such a surreal experience. The direction of
the show has changed so much over the years. Back
then it was more reality driven...more about the lives of
the contestants, rather than the singing. I actually like the
show much more now. Everything is polished, more
songs are cleared to sing, and it seems to have a more
positive spin to it. I like that.
How did you get into TV?
My first time on national television was back in 2002 when
I was a top 30 finalist on the first season of American Idol.
I remember being on the show and watching Ryan
Seacrest and Brian Dunkelman as the hosts. I thought
they had the coolest job ever! From there, I was hired
onto the second season of the show as a Co-Host/Special
Where are you from?
I'm from Plano, TX, just 10 miles north of Dallas.
What’s your favorite video game?
My favorite video game of all time is
Mario Kart on Nintendo 64. I remem-
ber playing that as a teenager with my
brother. Not only is it a sweet game,
but it brings back fond memories of
spending time with my bro. We would
always fight over who was going to be Wario. I liked his laugh.
How many times have you had to explain
to your parents that cheating in videogames
isn’t necessarily bad?
Ha! Actually, zero. They are just so proud to see
me doing what I love that I don't think they have
even thought about the whole "cheating" aspect.
They would probably be okay with it since they are
impatient like me, and would just want to get through
the game as fast as possible!
Let’s pander to the audience a bit.
Tell us a story about being a Dallas
It was one of the greatest experiences of my life.
I'll never forget it. Cheering at the games was a
blast, learning to dance was so much fun, but the
best part of the entire experience was traveling to
over 10 different countries entertaining our troops.
From Bosnia, to Japan, to Germany, it opened my
eyes to so many different cultures and gave me an even bigger
appreciation for our military and the sacrifices they make day in and day out
to allow us the freedom we all enjoy, but sometimes take for granted.
