  • [Singing opera warm-ups]

  • --Okay so I did a little vlog research while I was preparing for

  • this one and I saw on Laura Osnes's vlogs because she's the loveliest that

  • she does a one-minute plank every show and I tried to figure out where to put

  • it in, and this is my only break. I actually just put this costume on across the

  • stage came up here use the restroom because it's my only chance and

  • so now I'm gonna try and get a plank in. Okay.

  • --Just made it. Now, I have to go back to the other side of the stage.

  • Okay so I have to go in a second, but I just wanted to give you a quick little

  • tour. Look! I have lights now up in my room that Andrew just put. Here's my

  • amazing fan art. Got my phantom doll up. Some more beautiful fan art. I love it so

  • if anyone has more please send it in. These are my parents. They dressed up for

  • Halloween on a cruise ship, and I adore this picture. Oh my gosh. I got to go

  • I'm gonna go do my second act. Bye!

  • --Got Sarah Snyder. --Hey!

  • --Team dresser extraordinaire. There she is.

  • Elizabeth Wells. You've already met the wonderful Kailey. And I'm wearing a Santa

  • hat cos you know we're making a video.

  • --It's the holiday season. --The holiday season.

  • --A whoop-die-do,

  • --Do we have any Christine secrets or bloopers we'd like to share with the

  • viewers at home? --Besides my $10 lipstick?

  • --So many. --That's a good secret, too

  • Hey Kailey, have you ever fallen down on stage?

  • [laughs]

  • --How dare you?!

  • --I've fallen a lot on stage.

  • I fall down probably more than anyone has

  • fallen down ever on stage.

  • --I don't think that's true.

  • --Honestly, it you said that but it might be true.

  • --Are you on tonight because it might be...

  • --But honestly the but the worst one, the worst one, was during Rodney's first week

  • here. It was like our second show on together okay right and Paul was on for

  • Phantom. And he goes, he yells at the end, just like go now and leave me!

  • --Oh because Paul... a little earlier. --Yes, so literally, I

  • turn to run away and I tripped on the dress and my legs get tangled.

  • --Because the epic.

  • --It's epic.

  • --It's like so many layers and so my legs got tangled in the

  • layers.

  • --I was watching you from the travel...

  • --Rodney is holding my hand still...but I am flat on my

  • stomach on the ground and I tried to crawl, but I can't crawl because I can't get my

  • legs out! So, I'm just laying there literally

  • nailing my way to the sides. Like clawing my way to the side,

  • --And Paul meanwhile was like, Go.

  • --Meanwhile --Seriously, go, Christine!

  • --Meanwhile Paul is standing there just like

  • just like watch watching me die. And poor Rodney, poor Rodney, has both of his hands

  • on my hands and is literally dragging me off. --So funny.

  • --Honestly, that's one of the worst falls that I had,

  • but like one of many.

  • --So of course I could not have an

  • episode about team Christine without featuring my favorite member,

  • my little Mia Belle, who really likes this camera right now. She's my little

  • pup. You'll see more of her. I hope you all enjoyed, and I'll see you next week!

  • Thank you so much! Bye!
