Q: What is the craziest thing you have ever done?
A: When I was a little girl, I used to read a book called "How to Eat Fried Worms" by Thomas Rockwell. One day, I wanted to try this out myself, so I ate a worm that I found in the back yard after it had been raining. It was in the dirt and I ate it just to see what it would taste like. It wasn't what I expected. It wasn't very tasty, just slimy and a bit crunchy.

Q: Do you cook and/or bake anything? If so, what are your special dishes?
A: Yes I cook. I love making my traditional Ethiopian dishes like shrimp and scallop tibs. My special dish for baking I call Brownie Explosion, which has chocolate icing, vanilla ice cream, whip cream, caramel, fudge and last but not least - topped with fresh strawberries. YUM YUM

Q: If you were handed 10 million dollars, what would you splurge on?
A: First and foremost, I would thank the kind soul who gave me the money. Secondly, I would give some to my family and friends and charities. Finally, I would travel, shop, buy a Theme Park and hire a personal chef.

Q: If you could meet one celebrity, who would it be and why?
A: Well I already met Donald Trump, so I'd like to meet Angelina Jolie, an Oscar Academy Award Winning Actress because she seems to be very interesting. She began visiting refugee camps around the world and came to be formally appointed as a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations High Commissioner for refugees. She also works hard in her craft, while maintaining her home.

Q: What is unique about you (something no other contestant can say about themselves)?
A: I have a birthmark on my right knee that is shaped like 'lips'. When I was a little girl, my Mother said I was kissed by an angel.
