6. What's the most embarrassing thing that's ever happened to you during a game?: During the UCLA vs. Cal basketball game, and the miracle shot that won the game, a few of us dance girls ran across the court celebrating the victory. Little did we know there were 0.1 seconds still on the clock! Who knew?

8. My favorite professional sports team is: Angels baseball.

20. Describe the worst date you ever went on: The worst date I've ever had was probably the LACK of a date on Valentine's Day last year. I've had some pretty good dates since then though!
