Ive seen you whipping around with ease on your kick scooter at Globetrotter games. Do you think you could beat Shaun White in a skateboarding competition? HA! Maybe in a video game, but not on a real skateboard. But thats OK, because he couldnt beat me in a dance contest.
How did you learn how to dance? One day at the beach, I had sand in my shoes and shorts. I was hopping and bouncing around, flailing my legs and feet to try and get rid of it all at once. People were watching and laughing, so I turned it into a dance routine.
Favorite TV show? The Amazing Race. Those people get to go all over the world and have cool experiences, just like me, Flight Time, Wildkat, and the rest of the Globetrotters.
If they made a movie about your life, what actor would play you? Zac Efron, the guy who plays Troy Bolton in the "High School Musical" movies. Hes not quite as good-looking as I am, but hes about as close as anyone can get.
What kinds of things do you do to get ready for a Globetrotters show? I drink plenty of water before (and during) the show, because its important for energy and to stay healthy overall. Special K also taught me some great stretching exercises that I do to get ready so I dont hurt any muscles. Then I listen to some cool music to get my feet moving and get me pumped up, like Shake It, by Metro Station or Lose Control, by Missy Elliot.
Favorite Globetrotter move? I think its awesome when Scooter spins the ball on his head, but it makes me a little dizzy
If you could have any animal in the world for a pet, what would it be? I would say a kangaroo. That way, I could keep all of my costumes and props in its pouch.
What is the strangest thing a fan has ever asked you to sign? One time, a boy asked me to sign his forehead. I wonder what he thought when he looked in the mirror and saw eibolG
Do you have any hobbies? I like doing anything outside that involves running and jumping around, just being as active as I can.
Where did you hide my hat? Hey! Who let Big G get on here to ask questions?
If you could be a tree, what kind of tree would you be? Why would I want to be a tree? Its too much fun being Globie!
