Drew Scott:

1. I’m a health nut who likes to work out every day, but I am powerless when it comes to Yorkshire pudding, pizza and ice cream.
2. My mom didn’t know she was having twins until right after Jonathan was born and I was on the way. She saved the best for last, four minutes later!
3. In my college basketball days, I had a 43-inch vertical jump, on par with Dr. J and LeBron James. Picture a tall, skinny, dorky guy doing laps with Jumpsoles on.

4. In high school I excelled at problem solving and calculating so much that I actually completed the various grades of math in just two weeks each.
5. I rarely drink alcohol, but when I do I order a dirty Shirley!
6. I was so nervous when I first saw my now-fiancée, Linda,
at Toronto Fashion Week 2010 that my big opening line was “Do you know where the bottled water is?”
7. Jonathan and I briefly worked as mall cops in the late ’90s.
8. I’d love to have twins one day.
9. I can make a delicious lasagna.

11. I studied kinesiology.
12. One of my favorite things to do is play guitar with my dad, who taught me. The student still has not surpassed his master!
13. One of Linda and my favorite combinations is crafts and cooking.
14. We’ve even talked about handmaking our wedding invites and baking our own cake!
15. I dance (almost) every day with Linda for at least one song.
16. I love board games. You’ll find me enjoying board-game nights rather than out at a bar.
17. I listen to podcasts while getting ready in the morning.
18. My go-to clothes when I’m not on set are sneakers, joggers and tees.

24. I love a little — OK, a lot — of karaoke now and then. On our first date, Linda took me to a karaoke place where I sang Lonely Island’s “I’m on a Boat.”
25. I once made Jonathan a suit jacket entirely out of $2 bills for his birthday.
