"On a show like that you're suddenly showing the internal: your techniques, what have you learned, what have you mastered, what have you done, and how you can adapt to a situation. And I totally love that. I love that kind of challenge, to fix things that go wrong, to change a situation while a clock ticks. I want to make it work. That's something I always have in me: make it work."
