This question for me took a lot of pondering, because there’s really just so many amazing celebrities that could double as roommates. After careful consideration, my top three nominees are:
1) Martha Stewart: Why? Because she can cook, craft, sew, bend, glue, create, materialize or fix anything! If I ever needed help sewing a Halloween costume, fixing my ripped dress or finding a creative way to get stains out of my carpet, she would be there to help me out. She creates her own products, too which is an added bonus. Our dorm room would be the homiest, coziest most ridiculously decorated dorm in the hall, and I would love every second of it!
2) Chef Ramsey: I know, he’s quite the tough cookie to get along with. But who needs to get along when you have a ten-star chef in your dorm? I’d just buy all the groceries he could ever need and watch in awe (with my feet up of course) as he cooked up a 6 course meal in our microwave oven. I’d be getting the best of both worlds with him and Mrs. Stewart, with all of the complimentary benefits from home right in my residence hall. I could also learn how to cook amazing recipes out of just a few every day ingredients and take that with me for when I graduate and need to cook for my future family. It seems like a win-win for me. And, if he and I happened to get in a spat, I’d just eat until I was too tired to stay awake, and sleep it off! (See: The Itis- Eating too much and making yourself impeccably sleepy. Also see; Thanksgiving).
3) Steve Carell- Hear me out on this one. This star of “The Office” is hilarious! He always seems to make any situation into a comedic phenomenon which is exactly what a stressful dorm needs; comedy. They say laughter is the best medicine, and I’m sure it would be next to impossible to not split a spleen living with Steve Carell. He could tell me all of the stories of what it’s like to work as an actor in the film industry, and give me all the gossip and news of his celebrity-friends. He could bring me home signed autograph memoirs from Tina Fey and tell me exactly how many cups of coffee she drinks in a day (don’t act like you wouldn’t be interested to know). If he started to annoy me, I’d just tell him to re-inact his “KELLY CLARKSON” scene from one of his most famous movies and laugh at him until I wasn’t mad anymore. How could you stay mad after that?
Who would be YOUR top three celebrity choices and why?
