  • If you went on a reality TV show, and one of the other contestants shaved your head while you were sleeping, you'd:

    • Freak. I'd probably cry for hours before I even got out of bed.
    • Be shocked. How could anybody be so cruel?
    • Pretend I love it, and then find a sneaky, evil way to get even.
    • Try to forgive him/her. I'm sure it was just an attempt to get attention.
    • Avoid hooking up with anyone from the show until I figure out who did this.
    • Wear a silly hat anytime I'm on camera.
    • Never trust any of the other contestants again. They're all out to get me!
    • Go home.
  • If you saw one of your housemates pick his/her nose, and then eat peanut butter out of a jar using the same finger, you'd:

    • Probably be looking in a mirror. (I would totally do that.)
    • Cry. That is beyond disgusting.
    • Ask him/her to label that jar. The rest of us can open a new one.
    • Be shocked. I've never seen anybody do that before.
    • Wink. (But only if he/she looks good eating peanut butter.)
    • Feel sick whenever I see a jar of peanut butter.
    • Say, "You are so freakin' nasty!"
    • Be excited -- is my housemate a cute little monkey?!
  • If someone edited a few scenes from your life into a funny montage that made you look extremely angry, unstable, or trashy, you'd:

    • Take a deep breath and ignore it -- that's just how reality TV works.
    • Laugh at my own awesomeness.
    • Feel hurt about being portrayed that way.
    • Be really surprised that the editors intentionally made me look bad.
    • Be fine with it, as long as I look hot in the clips.
    • Be amazed at how serious I look. Those editors must be really good.
    • Be so embarrassed if anyone I know sees it.
    • Tell anyone who'll listen that the show is completely fake.
  • Would you flirt with someone you didn't like if it got you closer to winning a big cash prize?

    • Definitely. I hope the person actually likes me, and doesn't suspect I'm faking until after I win!
    • I would flirt with a chair if it got me closer to winning a big cash prize.
    • Yeah, but only as a joke. I'd be like, "Baby, you're too sexy to vote me off the show!"
    • Maybe, but I'm not sure I could pull it off. I might get nervous.
    • Only if I'm sure nobody's feelings will get hurt in the long run.
    • It depends. If I think the person is a total jerk, it would be hard to fake affection.
    • I couldn't do that. It's just wrong.
    • I don't think I'd flirt with anyone on camera. I'd feel awkward if it ended up on TV.
  • On a normal day, without any cameras around, how dramatic is your life?

    • My drama knob is always turned all the way up. That's how I like it.
    • Drama pops up once in a while, mostly around birthdays and holidays.
    • Pretty dramatic at times, because I will NEVER back down from an argument.
    • Well... I'm really sensitive, so I sometimes overreact to things.
    • It depends -- is there anyone cute around? Most of my drama is love-related.
    • It's not too bad. I tend to laugh stuff off instead of letting it get to me.
    • My friends and family provide most of the drama. I'm their calm, stable rock.
    • I don't need real life drama. I watch enough of it on TV.
  • Which challenge would be the easiest for you to win?

    • A battle of wits -- or insults. Either way, if it's a verbal battle, I'll win.
    • Eating a sea creature's eyeballs. (I'd even chew them with my mouth open.)
    • One that involves sharing a traumatic memory. (Bonus points for making the judges cry!)
    • One where the team has to pick a captain. I really think they'll choose me.
    • Dressing up in costume and entertaining little kids.
    • Convincing a total stranger to date me.
    • Performing a stand-up comedy routine about my family.
    • I'm not convinced I could win any of these.
  • And which challenge would you find the most, uh... challenging?

    • One where I'm judged on my manners.
    • One where I have to work with a partner who scares me.
    • One where I have to battle a close friend.
    • One that involves lying to someone who trusts me.
    • One that involves working really hard first thing in the morning.
    • One where I have to work with a partner who's afraid of me.
    • One where I lose points every time I laugh.
    • I'm not sure. These all sound hard.
  • Are you open to trying new things?

    • Why? Wanna hook up somewhere crazy?
    • I'll try anything, unless I think it's a waste of my time.
    • I'm excited to try new stuff, especially if it helps my team advance.
    • I think it's important to try new things. That's how people learn about the world.
    • Sure, unless it's something I consider offensive (which I'll admit is a long list).
    • I'm usually up for it, even if the new thing makes me look silly or stupid.
    • I might try something new, but I don't want anyone watching me.
    • I try to try new things, but I'm not going to force myself.
  • You'd feel the most comfortable in this reality TV scene:

    • Everyone but me is asleep, and I just dragged the garden hose into the house to wake them up. SQUIRT-SQUIRT!
    • I'm curled up on a cozy couch, listening to a housemate's advice.
    • I'm curled up on a cozy couch, giving a housemate advice.
    • I'm hanging out in the kitchen, telling everyone about the strange place where I grew up.
    • The cute housemate and I are relaxing in the hot tub, and none of the camera people are around.
    • I'm in the kitchen, shouting at someone whose personal beliefs are very different from mine. (Sometimes arguing is fun.)
    • I'm home alone, playing a karaoke video game, while the rest of the housemates are out at a club.
    • I'm talking to the camera, confessional-style, about something hilarious that happened the day before.
  • It's evaluation time, and the host starts listing everything you've done wrong so far. How do you react?

    • I'll use the time to think of new ways to drive everyone else on the show crazy.
    • I'll probably cry. That sounds stressful.
    • I don't think I'll cry, but I'll feel like I'm being attacked.
    • I listen calmly. It's just his/her opinion.
    • I'll focus on posing for the camera. I don’t care if the host likes me, as long as the audience does.
    • I'll insult the host right back. Nobody gets to talk to me that way.
    • I'll make a joke about how clueless I am and say, "I need more practice, so don't vote me off just yet!"
    • I felt panicky just reading that. I do NOT want it to happen for real.
