What do you like most about yourself? 
 My super dry sense of humor.

Name one asset you have that you think the other contestants don’t.
 I did a lot of acting and public speaking in college, so I’m used to being on stage and love being in the spotlight.

 I’ve played the violin for 14 years.

If you knew you were going to be stranded on a desert island and you could bring three things, what would they be?
 A fishing pole, a knife, and of course Tom Hanks, since he clearly has the most experience in a survival situation. Can he bring three things too?

Describe your fantasy motorcycle ride.
 First off, we have to start out obviously with a drop dead sexy man! Someone to really make the trip all worthwhile. I would want to be somewhere foreign with virgin grounds to me.

Occupation: Server
Hometown: Gillette, WY
Bar Where She Qualified: Jake’s Tavern – Gillette, WY

Describe your fantasy motorcycle ride.
 My fantasy motorcycle ride would be a sleek black with metallic blue Streetster chassis. I prefer the hardtail, but the softail isn’t bad itself. They are an absolutely beautiful bike that I will one day own.

What is the greatest asset a girl can have?
 The greatest asset a girl can have I believe is an education. Looks can get you anywhere, but what would keep you there is intelligence.

If you could have a conversation with anyone, living or dead, who would it be, and what would you ask them?
 I know I should probably pick a family member, as I love them all dearly and miss those I have lost. However, I would pick the Duke, John Wayne, to teach me to be the fastest gun around as he always was.
