Meet inline skater Terence Cheung, 20. Terence is originally from Hong Kong but he's been living here for the past 16 years, he's even gonna be serving NS soon, so he's pretty much Singaporean. Terence has tons of inline skating accolades and is ranked 19th overall in the world. He's represented Singapore in international competitions (in fact, he just got back from somewhere, and in a few days is flying off to Hai Ning in China for the Inline Slalom Asia Cup.
Why did you join OMG?
A friend recommended that I join the show. So I came to Mediacorp for an audition.
What will you be doing on the show?
I'm gonna be doing an inline slalom around 20 cones. It's like a dance and although it looks easy, its actually very physically demanding to do. I'll probably start with easier moves and work up to more difficult tricks. I'm gonna try and give a good performance by synchronising with the music.
Oh and what music will you be using?
Its a mix of classical and K-pop - "Shock" by Beast.
What will you do with the $50k if you win?
Give it to my parents? Maybe? :) I don't know, haven't really thought about it so much.
Who will you be challenging tonight?
Maybe the Vertical Dancers, because I want to watch their performance. Maybe C-Murda? He's a good dancer, it'll be nice to watch. Maybe the beatboxer? Cos I want to see what else he can do.
Any strategy to prolong your life on the show?
My strategy ah? Is to pick random people so that they don't know who is gonna get challenged. But I won't challenge David Lin. Confirm he will win, he is a judge's favourite. But overall, I just wanna try and have fun on stage, and give the audience a good performance because inline skating is different.
Do you have a favourite judge?
Jeanette Aw. Its a pity she is not on the show anymore :(
