The countdown is on—in less than ONE week, "The View" kicks off its 19th season! We thought we’d get to know one of our newest co-hosts Paula Faris a little more since she’ll be hitting the Hot Topics table again soon. She hails from Michigan (hence her teenage celeb crush was University of Michigan's Jim Harbaugh) and you probably know her as co-anchor of Good Morning America’s weekend edition, but what really makes her tick? She answered seven questions to honor seven days until The View’s season premiere!
1. What was your first concert?
"dc Talk. But my favorite concerts have been U2 and Sarah McLachlan."
2. Biggest pet peeve?
"Taking the last piece of pizza from the pizza box and not throwing it away, so when I open it, I'm sorely disappointed there's none left. Not cool."
3. Tell us your guilty pleasure TV show:
"My husband and I just started watching The Americans on FX. We have three young kids and both work outside the home. So, after the children are in bed, we watch a series. Or, simply stare at a wall and enjoy the silence."
4. What’s your song of the moment?
"Unfortunately, it's Wiggle (Chipmunks version). My kids are obsessed with it. And, request it every time we're in the car."
5. One superpower you wish you had?
6. Who’s your style icon?
"I have no style. But, love the effortless, attainable, every day look of Jessica Alba. Plus, she's hot. That said, I'm most comfortable in jeans and a t-shirt."
7. Hidden talent:
"I can drink a bottle of water faster than any other human. Try me.”
"The View" returns LIVE Tuesday, September 8th on ABC!
