{ INTRODUCING... STEFANIE }



Most memorable childhood moment: I was staying at a hotel and hung my swimsuit out to dry on the deck. Next thing I know it fell off the deck and we were 3 stories up. So my cousin and I went down to get it and we found a $50 bill. We decided to be honest and turn it in to the front desk. They said they would mail it to us if no one claimed it. A week or so later they actually mailed it to us and we were shocked! We were so excited to spend it!

Your best physical feature: My eyes

Your best quality: I have a positive attitude!

Why are you ready to find Mr. Right? I have had every dating experience imaginable. The stories keep getting better and better. It makes for good laughs and I will be rich off of the book I write one day, but deep down I want it to end.

What would your last boyfriend say about you? Stefanie you are AMAZING, BUT..... ( I hate the word AMAZING with a passion.)

Most embarrassing moment? I currently intern for 101.5 The Eagle. I love it! I do random jobs for them. One job was to run the board in the studio while the DJ was out on their remote at Ogden Subaru. So one day after the DJ said his little schpiel I forgot to turn him off. So the music is playing and he is talking to me thinking he is no longer on air, UM BUT HE IS. So everyone could here his end of our conversation and I felt so stupid and so did he obviously!

Greatest accomplishment so far: I tried out and made the team CLOG AMERICA. I currently dance with this team and have for 4 years. Every summer we tour to Europe for a month and dance in festivals with countries from all over the world. For example last year I went to Greece and Turkey and this year I will be going to Belgium, Paris, Pamplona (Running of the Bulls), and Portugal. It is one of the greatest experiences of my life.

What is one of your quirks? If I didn't have to sleep I wouldn't. I don't like to sleep.

Worst Date: I was on a blind date that was not going well at all. We went to Desert Star Theater and they asked if anyone was on a first date. Of course my date raises his hand. The host comments on how I am sitting so far away from my date and how it looks like an awkward first date (it was). Then he proceeds to tell everyone who is on a first date to stand up and dance to the song they played. Then they wanted us to kiss at the end of the dance. I refused!!

Best Date: I loved when my date taught me how to snowboard in Park City (one of my fave places on earth). It was night boarding and the view was a dream! It was so fun because he was really good and a great teacher! Then we ate at my fave Mexican restaurant up there! I loved it!

Did you serve a mission? I served in Brasilia, Brazil. If so where did you go and what would the elders say about you? They would say I was a good sport when they switched houses with us one Friday and the power went out in our new house because they forgot to pay their electricity bill. Thank goodness on the mish  - you don't need light because when you get home at night and you are so tired you just crash. You want the water in the shower to be cold because the weather is soooo hot! You have no food in the fridge to go bad because the members feed us. And our hair goes up anyway because it is so hot! If it would have happened here at home, no power for the whole weekend would have been an entirely different story!

What did you study in school and why? Where did you go to college? My undergrad was in Elementary Education at BYU because I always wanted to be an Elementary Teacher just like my Grandma. Then I did Grad School at BYU in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages because I know how it feels to learn a second language.

What is one thing that not a lot of people know about you that you want to share here with the world? In 2002 I taught a clogging team and we were given the opportunity to perform in the streets of Olympic Square during the Olympics. One day as we were coming off the stage we were approached by Pat O'Brien and Access Hollywood. They had the Barenaked Ladies with them and we taught the Barenaked Ladies how to clog on Access Hollywood!

I had the honor of serving with Stephanie on a mission trip in Haiti where we visited some orphanages and shared a room together. She was a shining light for me and the best roommate ever; with her radiant smile and amazing friendly attitude and her beautiful blue eyes. You couldn't pick a better bachelorette. She's vibrant and full of life with a sweet, warm heart!!!

whippoorill said...

I would love to see Stef as the next Mormon Bachelorette! I've only met her once but she was so kind and genuine. Just from her video, I feel that she would have realistic expectations about men and also be able to love and appreciate her future man so much more because of what she's experienced. She is young at heart but wise with experience. I really hope you decide to pick Stef. Your # of viewers would go THROUGH THE ROOF; not just because she a hottie, but also because of her sense of humor, engaging personality & contagious positive energy!
