What is the worst smell in the world?
Ha ha – the farts of my crew. (Points at mechanics) The smell is so amazing…
Have you ever knowingly broken the law (speeding doesn’t count)?
Yes yes sure. But only speeding. I didn’t steal – I never stole nothing
Do you have a favourite joke?
Oooh, no I didn’t make so many I don’t like a lot the jokes. But I do a lot maybe in the car when it is slippy – practical jokes
How much is a pint of milk?
One Euro – the expensive ones. And the normal one maybe 70 cents
Legs or boobs?
When were you last naked outdoors?
In Finland, for new year, in the snow.
Who is the most famous person in your phone contacts?
Maybe Justin Bieber on my Instagram? But on my list, maybe Valentino
Is Ricky Gervais funny?
No I don’t know him
On a scale of one (baby smooth) to ten (Ron Jeremy), how hairy is your arse?
