Describe your ideal date?
DB: I’m a beach guy. I would love to go down to the beach and get a little dinner. You know, kick off the flip-flops and just walk with my girl... maybe run across some sea turtles giving birth, a couple whales jumping, and then pitch a tent on the sand and just call it a night.
ML: I would go to dinner somewhere like Jake’s downtown, then we would go to a sporting event.
SE: Go to dinner at Buffalo Wild Wings. Then we would go do something cute. Maybe something like laser tag. And then I would drive her home, and give her a little kiss… but that’s it.

DB: Please see above.
ML: I used a cookie cake and rose pedals to ask a girl to prom… in the rain.

Can you cook, and if so, what is your signature dish?

SE: Oh I’m a great cook – my signature is sausage and mac.
What’s your signature dance move?
DB: You know it’s hard to narrow it down… but my signature would have to be what I call “the Boggs.” It’s like: you have two shake-weights in your hands, and you turn them horizontal, and then you put a Thizz face on.

SE: Not jealous… I just care.
How do you cope with heartbreak?
DB: Oh no, don’t do it to me. I guess, just a lot of tears. And you know I enjoy food anyway, so lots of food. I’d get a big ol’ bowl of chili con queso, mix a few tears in there… and just cry and eat. I’d eat it with a spoon, don’t even need chips.
ML: I just kind of try and move on. I talk to my roommates, or talk to a close friend so I can try and move on. We have to get over it some time right?
SE: McDonalds and friends.
