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.
