10 questions for Bachelor Pad participant and stunned contestant Rachel Truehart


Are you ever curious about the real lives of politicians, celebrities, local newsmakers and athletes? Who are their mentors and who would they really like to meet?
Each Tuesday, ABC Action News asks 10 questions of a leader or celebrity. They're fun questions that let you get to know the person.
This week, bachelor fans we have a treat for you! Rachel Truehart answers our 10 questions.
Rachel was among the final four in this third season of ABC's hit reality television show "Bachelor Pad." Truehart teamed up with Tampa's Bay's own Nick Peterson after her beau on the show Michael Stagliano was voted off.
Truehart was so broken-hearted she contemplated leaving the show early, but as viewers witnessed, Peterson convinced her to stay.
In what could be described as a disturbing Bachelor/Bachelorette/Bachelorette Pad finale,Truehart was left not only broken-hearted, but stunned when Peterson decided to "keep" the $250,000 and not share it with his partner.
Peterson claimed he won the game all on his own and deserved to keep the money for himself. He also said none of the other contestants ever backed him. He also stressed this was a game, and he was in it for the $250,000 dollars and not just $125,000 dollars. Truehart, as well as the other game players, were visibly stunned as was Bachelor Pad host Chris Harrison.
In the clips after, Truehart confronted Peterson on their promise to stick together. I must say my heart is broken for Truehart as well, especially if there was an agreement made between the two contestants.
Peterson did ask Truehart to answer my 10 questions, apparently before his stunning decision.
I enjoyed reading her answers. I hope you do as well.
1. What is your all time favorite movie or song?
I could never pick a favorite song I have hundreds! But my favorite movie would be anything with Will Ferrell; Anchorman & Wedding crashers being top of that list!  I love to laugh and anything that comes out of his mouth just kills me.
2. Do you have a Smartphone? If so, what's your favorite app?
I do have an iPhone and my favorite app is either Harbormaster or Scramble with Friends. I play them both daily!
3. Who do you count as your mentor(s)?
My parents of course! Cheesy I know but they have always been amazing role models and the people I look up to most.
4. What was your very first job?
Waitress at Friendly's
5. If you could change one thing about yourself what would it be?
Physically, my teeth! I've always been SO self conscious about them. Personality wise, I wish I cared less about what other people thought. I hold back in fear of being judged by others.
6. What do you consider your greatest success?
All the friendships I have made and continued throughout my life.
7. Tell us something about you most people don't know?
I know just about every word to every Eminem song (watch out when you get me into karaoke). I used to own Marshall Mathers dolls (when I was in college) along with having most of my room wallpapered with posters of him, I was beyond obsessed! Oh and I still have my blankie from when I was a baby and sleep with it every night, it's falling apart but I can't part with it.
8. If you could have dinner with any three people, living or dead, who would they be?
My dad's father who passed away when he was a teenager and so obviously never got to meet him and always wished I had gotten the chance to.  Sarah Jessica Parker so I can ask her a million fashion questions and pick her brain about her amazing & daring style. And OK I have to do it (celebrity crush warning ahead) Ryan Gosling bc I have a HUGE crush on him and think he seems like the sweetest guy, and he's kind of attractive.
9. What is in your fridge right now?
LOTS of condiments, plain non-fat greek yogurt, Unsweetened vanilla almond milk, eggs, low fat cheese, some fruits & veggies (that have probably all gone bad) and seltzer.
10. If you could have a different career, other then what you're doing now, what would it be?
A Stylist! I love clothes & playing dress up so being able to do it as a career would be kind of awesome.
