If music is your first love, what is your second?
My second greatest would definitely be dancing, I used to be so into bboying (breakdancing) and the dancing fever never left me, to be honest! I absolutely love a great dance track, and though I don't really know what I'm doing sometimes, I do my best to dance presentably ;) After all, dancing is an expression, and if it looks awkward and disjointed... you get the idea!

I started dancing really late (16) when I attended my first high school dance, and it really stuck. I was just grooving and being a dance dork when Bomfunk MC's Freestyler started playing and a bboy (breakdancer) started doing his thing. Man, was I blown away! I picked it up and...

Joined my first dance crew at the age of 16,
Participated in my first 'battle' (danceoff) a couple months later,
Won my first battle that same night,
Joined Special Style Sex Machine (crew name) at the age of 17,
Joined Rhythm Attack (crew name) at the age of 18.

The road was tough, and I have sadly not participated in the scene much at all these past years, but the passion stayed and I'm just enjoying the movement and the dance. What better way to unwind? =)

Secret Single Behaviour : What do you do on your own that no one knows about?
Oh haha what a question! I love to...
Gym n Swim! That lethal combination really does it for me, nothing like a quick/long dip after a gym session. Of course, with enough time I could do more like tan after the swim or sip some juice while taking a break from swimming... but the basic combination is gym, swim. Say it with me, gym, swim. Nice!

Smell vapor inhalers. I know it's bad for the nostrils, it definitely makes my day that much clearer and easier. I've been trying to curb this one though, inhalers are not good for you!

I eat burgers from the outside in, a habit I picked up after I ate my first Mcspicy Double. Dang those burgers used to slide out from the sides ALL the time! I had to keep the meat in by biting all around the circumference and making my way to the center. That said, it's something I do, and I'm sure many of us do the same! (I do!)

I look out car windows and imagine the limits of the windows represent the crosshairs of an invisible, but all-destroying laser. It's activated by the touching of my big and second toe. Tons of fun, with enough imagination! It really IS. (LOL, this is hilarious!)

summerr's take :
Theodore is such a humble guy. He's actually a very good dancer. I saw that on Choreo day. Everyone was really surprised at the ease with which he moved! Great stuff.

He's also got a voice that can melt the heart! Girls, you definitely wanna bring this one home to meet the 'rents. He has impeccable manners, is oh-so-polite and oh-so-cute.

Take a look at this vid that he recorded with Gabrielle, his voice is so smooth! Love it!

  1. CUTE!! I will support you!

  2. never talk back to judge Ken. just smile and accept it.

  3. Dear Anon,
    It is one thing for Ken to comment on a contestant's competence and another his/her morals or integrity. I guess it not only impacts the receiver, the people around him but also reflects the calibre of a judge unworthy of the respect from contestants and viewers.
    I fully support Theo's courageous stand, true to his beliefs and principles in the face of the judge's disregard. To this, Ken could only reply "I think you should stop this nonsense", for the lack of words.
    Theo's composure awakens the majority of us who too often stand by (like yourself) foolishly while insults to our morals and integrity are poured at us. This sets apart the heroes and the cowards of society.

  4. A nice guy with a good character! Thumbs up!

  5. Yes, the judges seems to think that "Moment Of Truth" series was on the air. Perhaps the question asked would have been appropriate if is was indeed.
    Well tonight, it appears that they have been told off, hence tried to explain lengthily to the audience (and another tv station?) on a remark made in last week's spectaculars.
    Please continue to check yourselves. "The truth hurts".
