Tristan made his debut as a special correspondent for Extra TV immediately following Week 5 of Dancing With the Stars. He did a great job, asked great questions, handled an awkward question with tact, and left us wanting more. We decided that we would offer our valuable assistance and give him a list of questions that he could ask various pros, celebrities, and troupe members. We're fairly sure he will take our suggestions and run with them (run away most likely, but we will risk it).
We hope you enjoy our list of thoughtful and insightful questions, all of which show the signs of what great investigative reporters we would both be.

Snooki, since I do a better job at asking the questions than you do, let's start with this one. What stories has Sasha told you about our Burn the Floor days, and should I be worried that the National Enquirer will run the story?
Sasha and Snooki, how does it feel to be able to fit inside a snow globe?
Farbs, you may be the master of Jazz Dance but I challenge you to a Rumba/Waltz Duel. I’m dancing with my celebrity of choice, and you get to dance with Mama June. I dunno who she is, but the MacManiacs keep throwing her name out there.
Bill Engvall, Dude, did you know that you have now replaced me as the heartthrob of Dancing With the Stars? More women are panting after you than me. I want to be you when I’m 56, okay?
Emma, so what’s it like living in the same house with me? Nah, just kidding. What’s it like dancing with the heartthrob of Dancing With the Stars?
Leah, you crack me up all the time, and I could listen to you all day, but how is it that I’ve never before heard that you have no actual dance training? You might want to share that with the judges and viewing audience.
Leah, wouldn’t you rather have a sexy Irishman as your partner than Tony? I wouldn’t have made you do those lifts in the Contemporary…but then I probably also wouldn’t have been your puppeteer, just sayin’….
Tony, you’ve made it clear that when a pro has a partner with no dance training, then it isn’t really fair. Did you feel the same way with Ringer Ringer Melissa Rycroft?
Henry, why were you in The Great Gatsby instead of me?
Lindsay, Witney, and Tyne,This is for any of you. Did you know that if one of you changed the hair color (or went back to the natural color, if that is appropriate), we could tell who is who?
Witney, lots of MacManiacs are curious about something. When we did the big finish to our commercial bumper in Week 5, why were you looking at the camera and smiling? There were other more appropriate endings to that dance, and you know the MacManiacs. Nothing ever pleases ‘em.
Cheryl, why is it that you didn’t say much in our ExtraTV interview? You were probably figuring out how to ask me to dance with you, right?
Jack, since we’re the only dudes who have cried this season, what do you think about us being this season’s bromance. I never understood why the show kept pushing me and Sean last season, but think about it. Everybody thinks we both talk funny, we’re both handsome devils, and we both probably drive Cheryl crazy.
Brant, Peta, I’m having a tough time coming up with a question for you, but it occurred to me that your initials P and B equal PB which means peanut butter. Was that fate? Okay, forget that one. So what dances will be doing for the Side By Side Challenge and the Trio dance?
Sharna, what do you say we turn up the heat and dance a Lambada that gets everybody talking? I’ve been hearing that people want to see us dance together, and I’m game. How ‘bout it? You do the choreography, I’ll bring the hips, and the MacManiacs will bring the fire extinguishers.
Gleb, a lot of the ladies (and probably the guys too) think you are mighty pretty? Should I be worried?
Bill Nye, You’re the Science Guy which means you’re probably pretty good in math too. Would you explain to the producers that the average age of my celebrities is approximately 60 years old which when compared to the rest of the pros, is approximately 30 years more than the average age of their celebrities, which means that if you explain it to them in mathematical terms 60 minus 30 = 30. 30. Years. Older. Would you do that for me? Maybe then they will get it.
Christina, Did anybody ever tell you what a great team we would have been on Dancing With the Stars? A bunch of MacManiacs have been talking about it for several seasons and here you are, I mean were….but with Mark Ballas. What’s up with that?
Mark, I guess me being in your Trio Dance is out of the question now, huh?
Mark, you and your partner didn’t make it past the halfway point in the competition. Now you know how I feel. I mean, how does it make you feel?
Corbin, Dude, you have so much dance training that I could be your DWTS pro and we would probably win. How ‘bout it?
Karina, Want to be my partner next season? You can be the celebrity. I’ll be the pro. We’ll win this sucker, and I won’t be gone in the first 12 minutes of the show for a change.
Amber, let’s compare knee injury stories. Betcha I win. Oh, and do you think you would win this thing with me as your partner?
Derek, I’ve never been fortunate enough to choreograph a freestyle on Dancing With the Stars, yet you seem to do one every couple of weeks. How do you manage that?
Derek, what does the EWC stand for on your license plates. Oh wait, I get it now… Emmy Winning Choreographer.
Val, since you and I were doing such a great workout at rehearsals this week – with me stretching and you twerking, whadaya say we do our own DWTS Workout Video? We’ll be the new Kym and Karina and call it “Twerking and Scratching/Stretching While Pretending To Work Out With the Pros.”
Hey, Liz, I’m not quite sure how to say this so I’ll just hold up a sign, and you can answer.
Elizabeth, I can do staring contests too. So how does it feel to be eyeballed by an #Irishman?
Val, how do you think I would look as a model for your Valentin collection of urban wear? Yeah, that’s what I thought…
That's it for now, but if Tristan needs more questions, we will be happy to oblige.
