Q: If you were forced to become one member of the Fellowship of the Ring from “The Lord of the Rings,” who would you be and why?
A: I don’t think you would have to force anyone to become a member of the Fellowship because they’re awesome. But I choose to be Frodo because we’re both short and kind of a big deal.

Q: Would you be willing to eat a bowl of live crickets for a year of free school?
A: I would be willing to do that, because that’s only like 30 crickets for 40 grand, but I would have to be allowed to douse them in Nutella.

Q: What did you want to be growing up, and what do you want to be now?
A: I wanted to be a pro tennis player, but I only made it as far as division three, so we know how that worked out. Either that, or I wanted to be a paleontologist. Now I want to become a physical therapist.

Q: Why is tennis the greatest sport of all time?
A: Tennis is the greatest sport for a number of reasons, but I’d say the main reason is because if you hit the person with the ball, you win that point.

Q: Your choice: hitting the whip or the dab?
A: Dab all day.

Q: What are the top three places you like to visit in Minnesota?
A: I would want to go to [Quarry Park] to cliff jump or to the State Fair because they have good food there. Those, or I would go to the airport to leave for somewhere warm.
