OFF AIR WITH DEAN FRIEDERICH

If you could know the absolute and total truth to one question, what question would you ask?
Were Ross and Rachel really on a break

What’s a random award or recognition you feel you deserve?
I don’t mean to toot my own horn (well, toot toot) but I can parallel park like a BOSS!

What is your most-used emoji? Definitely any kind of laughing emoji. I’m way too easily amused at some things sometimes!

What’s your guilty pleasure?
I’m the biggest sucker for really corny reality TV.

If you could eat only 3 foods for the rest of your life, what would they be?
Pasta, braaivleis and caprese salad. Caprese salad doesn’t get the recognition it deserves!
