I can sing in French. I can make a chicken out of a towel. That’s about it.

Jonny Orsini
Flirting with older women, dancing like a goofball to 90s hip hop music.

Lisa O'Hare
"SPAVING"- spending whilst saving at the same time. Very special skill!

Making a perfect soft-boiled egg.

Many people don’t know that I am a contortionist, and I can crush cans with my shoulder blades.

Ben Fankhauser
Dialects, licensed driver, great with children.

Phillipa Soo
I make a really great risotto, and will knock your socks off with my chocolate chip scones.
