Dancer of the Week
Texas A&M's Kailey Claborn takes a break from dancing to declare her love for Pazookies, Duck Dynasty and Leo DiCaprio
Hometown: Keller, Texas
College: Texas A&M (Junior)
My friends would be surprised to know that I: Have a serious fear of heights. It even makes me nervous to watch movies that have scenes with people on tall buildings, mountains, etc. I once had to do a “trust fall” in high school and I felt like I was going to have a heart attack.
The top three items on my bucket list:
1) Skydiving, to hopefully cure my fear of heights
2) Travel the world
3) Do mission work in Africa
The most embarrassing thing that’s ever happened to me during a game: One time I was running across the court to throw a t-shirt into the crowd, and I tripped and almost face planted. Luckily I caught myself before I hit the ground, but my stumble definitely didn’t go unnoticed. My face turned bright red and I tried to act like nothing happened, but multiple people came up to me after the game to tell me how funny I looked.
My favorite app: Instagram! I am obsessed with pictures, so I love being able to put different filters on them.
My celebrity crush: Leonardo DiCaprio. That man stole my heart in Titanic and hasn’t let me down since. I talked to him once on the beach in Cabo and it was probably the best day of my life. He is just as beautiful in person as he is in the movies!
My worst date: This guy I had been hanging out with asked me to come over for dinner at his house. I didn’t like him more than a friend and thought he was having a group of people over for dinner, so I agreed to stop by. When I walked into his house, he had made a nice dinner for two, with candles and everything. I felt so awkward—I wasn’t expecting the night to turn into a date! So I went to his roommate’s room and made him come eat with us. The guy wasn’t too happy about his roommate sitting in on our “romantic” dinner. Needless to say, he didn’t ask me out again ☺.
Three people I’d like to have dinner with (living or dead): Beyonce, Katy Perry, and Denzel Washington. I am obsessed with the music and performance ability of Beyonce and Katy, and Denzel is my all-time favorite actor.
My favorite people to follow on Twitter: A friend and I are obsessed with a fake Bill Nye account called @yaboybillnye. I’m pretty sure we’re the only two people that die laughing at his tweets.
The coolest people who follow me on Twitter: I guess the most interesting person is Johnny Manziel—or as most people know him, Johnny Football.
If I had to watch one movie or TV show over and over, it would be: Duck Dynasty. It’s one of the few TV shows guaranteed to make me laugh out loud every episode.
If you looked at the “most played” songs on my iPod, you’d see a lot of: Variety. I love hip hop, country, pop, and acoustic music.
My worst habit: Biting my nails, especially when I am stressed out. You can always tell when I have a round of tests, because my nails look terrible.
The talent I’d most like to have: Singing. I like to act like I’m a good singer and obnoxiously belt out my favorite songs, but it’s usually painful to hear.
My favorite professional team: Dallas Cowboys. Even though they’re going through a rough patch right now, I love football and I have to support my home team. I would much rather watch my Aggies play over any pro team, though!
My one guilty pleasure: A PAZOOKIE. It’s a giant chocolate chip cookie with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream on top. It tastes like heaven.
I’d want my last meal to be: Chicken Fajitas. I love Mexican food!
