Who is the most inspirational person in your life?



BROOKE:My mom is the most inspirational person in my life. She approaches every situation with a huge heart and an unbelievable amount of compassion. She's the type of person that can make anyone smile, and I can only hope to be half the person she is.

ASHLEE:My parents are my inspiration. My mother who taught me the value of patience and my father who taught me the importance of hard work.

What is your biggest fear?

BROOKE:Clowns! I do not like clowns at all!

What is your most embarrassing moment?

ASHLEE:Oh my, I have too many to count because they happen on the daily. One that comes to mind would be back when I was cheering for the Utah Flash, a loose ball hit me right in the face in front of thousands of fans and I blacked out. I was so embarrassed!
