  1. Congrats to Juan!!
    How did he find q°7??? I spent ages looking for this one!!! Anyways, congrats^^

    When is the next contest?

  2. The answer for question 10. was not correct, because Kate claims, that she wasn’t the little girl on that commercial, and she does not know how it is. Her first role was not in that commercial therefore.

  3. That was question 9
    It is correct: kate did make that sugar puffs commercial (she had to dance with the monster, tee heeee^^). But once on a show they surprised her by showing a commercial which was shot with another girl. She did not immediately tell that the girl wasn’t her because she did not want the reporter to be embarrassed and fired. Now she has of course revealed that it wasn’t her on the video, but she did work for that commercial…

  4. Congratulation Juan! :D

    LoL…I didn’t understand the last question, I thought “Out of her filmography” means…what’s her fav. movie WITHOUT her…

  5. Congrats Juan? How did you find question 7?! I spent AGES looking for this one. Congrats on your prizes! They’ll be super!
