Question: If there were no rules in your life for one day and you could be outrageous, what would you do?

Brook's Answer: "I would eat everything in the world. You do not understand. I will eat everything twice. "


That is the smartest answer ever! Outrageous = something that means you are doing excessively that the common wisdom will judge unappropriate ; a pageant girl has a sculptural body and weight fluctuations is something she had to handle in a healthy way.

Moreover, her answer was so funny that she entertained all the audience! I think she can do politics. And I remember that she gave the answer very fastly within 1 or 2 seconds. I love this girl! Not the prettiest MU but the smartest.

She should be number 1 of your top 10
The best so far because sometimes the line of questioning is different, and mostly answers are already fake just to go with the right answer. we know what is right and what is wrong. But sometimes, you have the right to twist the questions, sometimes you can argue or dis agree with it. This is the best answer for me with those silly questions, they we're answered with a silly answer as well... Laugh out loud

Q: What is something that you have done, that you will never do again?

That's just life, but something I've done that I've probably regretted would be picking on my siblings growing up because you appreciate them so much more when you're older, you get closer with your family. Everybody fights with their siblings, right?! But I don't regret it.
