Will she stick to type on the Heartbreak Island?

Yes I am! 

Describe yourself in three words.

Fun, loud, partier.

What is the most surprising thing about you? 

I guess that I work for a construction company and spend my days in a hard hat! 

Describe your ideal date.

My ideal date would be a beautiful dinner in town followed by delicious cocktails then dancing the night away. 

Describe your ideal partner and what qualities they’d have.

Funny and sarcastic! I need someone who makes me laugh, is hard working, adventurous and wants to travel.

Reationship deal-breakers? 

Cheaters, and someone with no goals in life, they need to be ambitious. 


Someone who is funny, kind, romantic and a people person.


Someone rude, too into themselves, controlling and boring. 

Who is your celebrity crush?

Zac Efron.
