    Q. What has been the most romantic thing you have done for someone...Dumbest?
    A. The most romantic thing I have ever done for for one Valentine's Day, I covered a girl's entire bedroom floor with rose petals and lit candles and asked her to go out with me.
    Dumbest thing---probably forgot someone importance's name....and then when I said their name, it was wrong, and I ended up looking like an idiot.

    Q. If you could make one difference in the world and be known for that; what would that be?
    A. I would want to be the first hearing person to play a deaf actor in a movie just because the deaf community needs exposure... and people need to be educated about the deaf world as well....Instead of being frowned upon because it's a handicap issue, which I don't really look at it that way

    Q. If you did become famous what kind of music would you like to sing?
    A. Probably something along the lines of Pop/Rock...I would love to work with Rodney Jerkins or the Neptunes.

    A. Well, that's kind of a hard question to ask, considering I don't want to go into the music business...Ummm, but if I DID want to go into the music industry, I think that I would bring a lot of soul, edge and pop into the music world. I'd like to be a John Mayer meets Justin Timberlake type of thing. Something new and different that no one has seen before.

    Q. What is the Most embarrassing thing that has happened to you?
    A. Hmmm, a lot of embarrassing things have happened to me during the show, actually. One time, me and Ryan Starr were at a club and this guy puked all over us, so we had to walk out of the club covered in this alcohol vomit concoction. It was disgusting and embarrassing.
