Q: What is something weird about you?

A: I hate ceiling fans. I don’t like to watch them spin, and I hate when you turn them off because it keeps spinning. If I step on a crack in the sidewalk, I have to walk with one foot on the left of the sidewalk and one foot on the right of the sidewalk to even it out. I can fit my fist in my mouth, and someone else’s fist in my mouth — that you’ll probably see in the show.

Q: What is your favorite pickup line?

A: You go up to an Aggie and you say, “Does it hurt?” And they say, “What? When I fell from heaven?” And you say, “No when you didn’t get into UT?” It’s probably not the best way to pick up girls, but oh well.

Q: Who is your role model?

A: My dad, because he embodies the qualities that I don’t have, but want to have. He’s got the biggest servant’s heart and has great work ethic.

Q: If you could bring someone back to life, who would it be, and why?

A: If I could bring anyone back to life, it would definitely be Uncle Ben from “Spider-Man.”
