During this taped segment,Jason Taylor claimed to be an ardent ship-in-a-bottle builder. “It can be a little tricky at times, but when you finish one there’s a real sense of accomplishment,” hesaid. Marlee Matlin professed to work as a volunteer police officer for the narcotics squad. ShannonElizabethclaimed to be thepresident of the MacGyver fan club. Kristi Yamaguchi supposedly competes not only on the ice, but in hot dog eating contests. “So far I’ve won the regional and sectional hot dog eating contests – now I’m preparing for the nationals,” she boasted.Priscilla Presley upheld that sheworks fora psychic hotline. For Marissa Jaret Winokur, apparently, life’s all aboutsurfing. “For me, catching that big wave is what life is all about,” she said.Steve Guttenberg declared his hobby to be freestyle rapping, with a “street name” ofThe Guttemeister General. Cristian de la Fuente, the big softie,claimed to betotally devoted to his belovedpet otter.
