Clearly this cutie is the whole package; witty, athletic, and a charmer. Whether he’s tackling on the rugby field or tackling a problem set for economics, he’s always “down to clown.” We’re hesitant to reveal this interview, because we want him for ourselves. This classy lad will capture your heart, he’s already captured ours. Ladies, meet Erik Lafrance.

Tell us about rugby-- How did you get involved? When I was a freshman, an upper-classman living on my floor came up to me and said, “Hey, you’re big, you should play rugby.” I had no idea what I was getting myself into, but after getting smacked around for two hours at the first practice, I was hooked. It’s been nothing but rucking and scrum-downs since then.
We hear you have some musical talents, what instruments do you play?
I am a casual player of the ukulele. Those who are well acquainted with me know that my hands…are much smaller than expected. I figured if I have small hands, might as well play a small instrument. I don’t really play in any bands or concerts, but I can do private concerts upon request for all the single ladies out there.
Do you sing in the shower?
Yes. Next Question.
What do you look for in a girl?
Good sense of humor. Good sense of style. Good sense of direction. I like a girl who wears sleeveless flannels, a camo hat, and can pop open a beer bottle using her belly button. I also like girls that are smarter than me, because I like to pretend I’m a trophy husband.
Blondes or brunettes?
Gingers. Next Question.
Describe your perfect date.
I just like to keep it simple. 10 foot-long table on the beach, adorned with candles and flowers, and a mariachi band. I ride up on horseback, shirtless, then we eat a healthy portion of red meat. Later, we go watch Star Wars back at my place. The old trilogy of course.
What's your best pick-up line?
Are you with a rich, sexy man from New Hampshire?
Do you want to be?
What's your most embarrassing moment?
I’d tell you but I’d have to kill you after. Also, you’d probably vomit if I told you.
If you were food, what would you be?
XXL grilled, stuffed burrito from Taco Bell - with steak or beef, doesn't matter.
Favorite movie of all time?
The Departed, because I’m a man.
What would you do if you won the lottery?
Probably stay in bed for the rest of my life.
How do you feel about being nominated?
Well, only a real jerk would enjoy bragging about themselves.
That being said, I love it.
