Character Interview! 

This is kinda sorta like the Newlywed Game...if you haven't seen reruns of that old TV gameshow, the idea is that couples are separated and asked questions - and told to answer them as they think their partner would respond...to see how well they really know each other. On with the questions.

Jesse - how well do you know your crush? What would Brooke pick from the following?

1. Chocolate or peanut butter? Chocolate
2. Heels or Mary Janes? Heels. Maybe even red ones…
3. Skydiving or deep-sea diving? Skydiving
4. Running a red light or slamming on the breaks? Running a red light, no question
5. Country music or classic rock? Country
6. Risking it all or playing it safe? Risking it all

Brooke - your turn - how close was Jesse to getting these right?

He was pretty close…
1. Definitely chocolate
2. Neither—flip flops!
3. Wrong. Deep-sea diving.
4. Running a red light, but I’m sure it was only yellow.
5. Country

6. Risking it all!

Start your engines…

Eighteen year-old Jesse Copeland learns of a local car race sponsored by his father’s nemesis, Shep Bradley, and the prize money might be enough to keep his family from losing their home – if he can win.

Brooke, Shep’s daughter, is also aiming to compete, with or without her father’s approval. She’ll do whatever it takes to persuade Jesse to make her car race ready. Both are driven, both are risk-takers, and soon it’s more than engines getting fired up. Jesse tells himself their relationship is strictly business, until it isn’t.

Can two star-crossed lovers overcome a family feud as old as Ford vs. Chevy, or will the competition become too explosive for these racing hearts?
