What is your favourite book and why?
Au Nom du Père et du fils (Francine Ouellette) – this French-Canadian book describes well the battle between the conservative church mentality versus the progressive thinking of the sciences during the 19th century in Québec. All this is mixed with the relations between the First Nations and the French colonists. History is one of my passions.

Who is your hero?
My grandfather Louis-Philippe Savard. He started from nothing in a small city of Lac St-Jean. He had no education and didn’t know a single English word. He read a lot of books, moved to Montréal and became a great businessman. He traveled all around the world and even met the Pope Jean-Paul II. He died three years ago, but he will be my hero forever.

Special talent(s)?
I love to dance!

What is your most embarrassing moment?
Probably when I was a waiter in a resto-bar during university and I spilled a full pot of boiling hot tea on the back of a very old lady. She was so nice to me, but I felt so bad for her and mad at myself. It was the worst moment ever.

What is your biggest fear?
Needles… I hate blood samples and vaccines. Even though I’m not watching it, I might faint.

What is your biggest date fear?
Anything involving needles! Ha ha!

What is your guilty pleasure?
I like Backstreet Boys songs. Every time I’m singing Karaoke or doing a LipSync Battle, I usually choose, ‘’I Want It That Way’’.

What would an ex say are your three worst attributes?
Lack of patience and communication, and spending too much money

If you won the lottery, what would you do with your winnings?
Have my own restaurant, buy a Lamborghini, buy a neighborhood and build houses for all my closest friends and family, travel around the world and donate money for suicide prevention.

What is your greatest achievement to date?
It can sound a bit weird, but I would say happiness. I am happy in every part of my life right now and I’m the reason for this.

What are your three best attributes?
Loyal, generous and funny
