    Who do you admire most in the world and why?
    My mother — I’ve come to really admire her more and more as I’ve traveled and lived in other countries. She moved to Canada from Taiwan for her graduate degree and had to assimiliate in a very different culture in a very different language. She’s protective, loyal, and the Queen of Tough Love.

    What’s the most outrageous thing you’ve ever done?
    Honestly, probably going to The Bachelor casting. :) I’m not a big risk-taker and have made most major decisions calculatedly and with my career in mind.

    What is your most embarrassing moment?
    Every time an audience applauds and I’m not happy with how I did. I can’t help but squirm from feeling undeserving.

    Describe your idea of the ultimate date.
    I love conversation and food, so as long as it’s quiet enough to hear each other and the food is excellent…

    If you wanted to really impress a man, what would you do and why?
    Listen. People don’t do it enough.
