Why do you want to be on ATJ? It doesn't take the most brain energy to do what I do. It's not the most exciting stuff. So, an opportunity to go somewhere exciting, it's great.
Why do you think you can win ATJ? I see myself as a warrior, someone who is strong and capable.
What are your strengths? I'm very adaptable, mentally and also physically. My body can be put through a lot of strain.
Weaknesses? I get emotional and I start to cry. I'm a bit of a weeping willow. But it's more of a physical thing.
What are your best qualities? I refuse to be mediocre. I refuse to do anything half-way.
Worst? I'm not focused enough, so I'm scattered in a million directions.
What are your biggest fears? Failure, base jumping, drowning, falling and sharks.
