What is your favorite movie? – Hoosiers
What is your favorite TV show? – Almost anything reality, but if I had to choose, it would probably be Survivor.

If you could have dinner with one person from the past or present, who would it be? – My grandfather, Bob Splinter, is the most influential person there’s ever been in my life.
