TAC: What is something you have gotten to do on this journey that you never thought you would have ever had the opportunity to do?
TAC: Kind of touching on the craziness again, the ladies obviously love you. What is the craziest fan experience you’ve ever had?

TAC: You are SO loved in Atlantic City. You guys used to have a long-running show at Harrah’s Resort. What do you like about performing most here?

TAC: Can you tell us what your favorite number is from the show?

TAC: Most recently, Ryan just announced that he is leaving the group. Walter’s blog about him made us teary! How do you feel about this?
