1. Do you have any nicknames or pledge names? What are they and what do they mean?
Monger--a monger is something that words cannot describe. Very few people have ever seen a monger, but when you do, you immediately recognize it. The name was given to me a couple of years ago, and the younger guys just keep on the tradition of the nickname without really knowing why. The 'why' will have to remain a secret.
2. Describe this past quarter in three words.
Insane, excessive, intense.
3. Why did you choose to pledge this fraternity?
I pledged DOC originally to party my ass off. I was a first quarter frosh, and I didn't realize what being Greek meant. DOC threw the craziest parties, and that is what attracted me to them. My reasons have definitely changed since then. Being a brother is much more than the social aspect of Greek life, however the initial decision was definitely to party hard.
4. What was your first thought when you realized you were going to be on camera?
I was excited to be on camera because there are a lot of people out there that don't know what being in a fraternity means--specifically a local fraternity. A lot of people view fraternities as "secret handshake," exclusive societies who don't give a sh*t about anyone else. I was excited that the cameras would show the rest of the world that we are simply a group of really close friends who have organized fraternally to accomplish things that individual college students could not. They will show that when everything is said and done, we're just here to have the best time possible while getting the most out of our college experience.
5. Before you pledged the fraternity, how many people had you lived with at one time? Were you concerned about sharing a living space w/ other guys? Why?
Other than the dorms, I had never lived anywhere but home. I wasn't worried at all because living in a fraternity house means living with a group of people who have similar interests and people who you SHOULD call your friend. If you can't be friends with the people you might be living with in a fraternity house, you shouldn't have joined that organization. I was excited about living in the house, not concerned. While intense and sometimes exhausting, living in a fraternity house is something everyone should do at least once.it's a great time.
6. What moment from this quarter do you think will be the most painful for you to watch on TV? Why?
I don't think there is going to be anything painful to watch. Legal issues aside, we didn't do anything that we might regret America watching. We may get in trouble with the university or with the police, however we are a no-nonsense, straightforward group of guys that people will be willing to relate to. We will do some stupid stuff, and maybe some stuff people are offended by, but deep down people will have a sense of understanding.
7. What's your porn star name? (Your first pet's name and the street you grew up on)
It's lame -- Annie Academy.
8. What do you find attractive in a woman? What turns you on?
Honesty, independence and someone I can hang out with around my friends is very attractive.
The Britney Spears meets SoCal look really turns me on. Shoulder-length blonde hair, blue eyes, friendly smile, pierced bellybutton and/or tongue, and the typical Abercrombie beach look. A girl who knows what she wants is also a big turn-on. Dating shouldn't be like babysitting, but a lot of times it is.
9. When the quarter started, were you dating anyone? Are you in a relationship right now?
Ha! College is too short for relationships.
10. What is the one thing you want people to know about you after watching the show? Why?
There is a difference between being an asshole and being upfront. People who hardly know me, or just meet me, can get the sense that I'm an ass. People I truly call my friends know me as the person who will always give them a straight answer, good or bad, when they need one. If you look fat in those pants, I'll say so. Don't ask me a rhetorical question looking for a specific answer, because I'm going to give you the truth. Sometimes it hurts, and sometimes I'm insensitive, but I will never, ever lie to anyone and people close to me respect that.
11. What was the best/most memorable moment for you this quarter?
Las Vegas. The fact that it was with 28 of my best friends, my pledges and MTV made it insane.
12. What is the most important lesson you learned during this past semester? What would you do differently if you could do it over?
I have learned that a person should think about their actions and how they might affect other people before they do them. While this seems like a simple rule, sometimes things are carried out before thinking them through. I can't say that I would do anything over because the experiences we go through prepare us for more important decisions we will have to make in the future.
13. If you had the chance to hang out with one actor or musician, who would it be and why?
I don't idolize anyone specifically enough to put down just one name, but I think living the rock star or movie star life for a night, hanging out with any big name, would be a great time. Booze, groupies, worldwide popularity. Who could ask for anything more? ;)
14. Which night sounds like more fun: Hanging out with a hot girl or going out with your buds? Why?
It all depends on what you did the night before. If you have been hanging out with buddies all week, a relaxing night with someone would be nice. If you just spent the week touring with the Maxim girls, a little testosterone would be in order.
15. If you could choose a theme song for this past quarter, what would it be and why?
Anything with a lively beat that energizes people and makes them want to party it up would fit perfectly. I would stay away from punk because it is too whiny. Maybe something rock, but I still think nothing would intro the energy we have better then a faster, energizing bass line.
16. Who is the messiest pledge? Who's the neat freak? What have you witnessed to back that up?
All the pledges are dirty, dirty pledges.
17. What is the grossest/weirdest/worst thing you've witnessed in the pledge house?
Jordan's bucket of stew. While it was too disgusting to probably even get aired, you'll all just have to take my word for it. Drink up, Jordan.
18. Complete the following sentences:
Frat boys are:
gonna make college better.
Sorority girls are:
your late night entertainment.
19. If you were president of the fraternity, what would you do?
I was president of the fraternity, and I am very impressed with how things are. There aren't one or two things a president can do to make a fraternity successful. It is the continuous completion of sets of tasks, over many years, that makes an org who they are. I wouldn't change a thing, I wouldn't do anything different. I love everything about DOC.
20. What goals have you set for yourself for after college? Are you concerned about the future, or are you ready to rock n' roll? Why?
Typical stuff. Get a job, make money, blah blah blah. Give me close friends, a fun time and everything will work out fine. I hope. ;)
