What does being on 'Deal or No Deal' mean to you?

Being a "Deal or No Deal" model is more than opening a briefcase and looking pretty. You're a part of changing someone's life. Watching the families and contestants freak out when they win thousands of dollars is thrilling! We get to be a part of it. We get to work with the best host on television. We get to be a part of the "Deal or No Deal" family that is so happy and nice! Shows like this don't come along every day. This is a once in a lifetime show and I'm HONORED to be a part of it.

My favorite thing about acting is the message you bring to life.

What do you love about acting?

My favorite thing about acting is the message you bring to life. I love entertaining and playing different characters...but more importantly, I love seeing people's emotion when they watch your work. I did a video with Eminem that was really dark. It was about a sensitive subject that made you think. People cried watching the finished product. That's what acting is to me.

What is one goal you have yet to accomplish?

I want to be on "Impractical Jokers" so bad! I've always wanted to fill in for one of the guys and play pranks on random people. Also, I want to have a baby in a couple of years. Being a mom is going to be a dream come true.

What has your experience working with the other briefcase models been like?

I've never been around so many incredible women in my life. This experience has been surreal. I feel like I'm in the COOLEST sorority on the planet. The support, laughter, kindness and generosity is unbelievable. It doesn't feel like work at all.

Do you have a side hustle?

Being that I was a professional dancer for years, I teach dance sometimes at a studio where I grew up called "Expressions Dance Company." Besides that, I am a full-time actor.

What is the most adventurous thing you've ever done?

I drove cross country with my fiancé in a day and a half. 3,000 miles in about 36 hours. It was madness, but so much fun. We took turns sleeping in the passenger seat and barely stopped. I wouldn't do it again because it was very tiring, but I had a great time.

If you had to pick one other briefcase model to be on a deserted island with who would you pick and why?

#13 Mahogany Lox. She and I are the same person ... we will make the same jokes at the same time, look at each other and just die laughing. We dance like nobody's watching in between commercial breaks.
