Job: Bartender at Relapse Theatre
Relationship status: Single
Rachel claims she doesn't watch TV or go to the movies. Instead, she prefers the immediacy of improv and stand-up. In fact, she spent so much time hanging out at Relapse Theatre after moving to town that the bar manager put her to work mixing drinks. Born in Canada, raised in Rome (Georgia, unfortunately), she's also a full-time fashion student at the Art Institute of Atlanta in Decatur, where she wants to learn the skills to become a stylist or clothes buyer. Rachel came to Atlanta a couple years ago for a boy. But now the only significant other in this cutie-pie's life is her new Great Dane puppy.

What's the lamest pickup line anyone's used on you?

If you could live in any movie, which would it be?
What's the first album you bought with your own money?

What's the best way for a customer to hit on you?
Not to. [Laughs] Just not being too "hitty-on-y," if that makes sense. I hate it when people are really obvious about hitting on me, just turns me off. You just gotta be cool, I suppose.

What's your sexy-time soundtrack?
I was just talking to someone the other day about how I don't have a sexy-time soundtrack, and everyone was making fun of me. I've never gotten sexy with the music, I guess. Other people have. I haven't really, though.
Have you ever been dumped? If so, what was the reason?
Yes, I've been dumped a few times, just things didn't work out. I don't think there was a reason ... 'Cause I'm a bitch. [Smiles] I was dumped 'cause I'm a bitch.
What's your pettiest relationship deal-breaker?
People who breath really heavily through their nose. Or snore. Can't do it. Or people who, when they watch TV, they laugh like this: "Ha Ha Ha," every two seconds.
What would you order for your last meal?
Eggplant Parmesan, I love eggplant.
How much would you charge to murder a stranger?
It'd have to be at least $1 million. I wouldn't do that cheaply. I don't think I could murder someone. It would be pretty scary.

Beastie Boys. Everyone loves the Beastie Boys — I hate them.

That game makes me anxious, with, like, the president or something that would be fun.

Oh yeah, who doesn't?

Boots, I wear boots. I like heels, too, but boots are more practical.

At Relapse, where I work.

Not counting rent or bills, where does most of your disposable income go?

I want to own a line of boutiques in places where I have family so I can always be surrounded by people I know and love.
If you had to spend a million dollars in one afternoon, what would you do?
I would probably buy myself a car, first off, and then get my friends and see what kind of trouble we can get into. Maybe buying a house would be a wise decision.
Have you ever stolen a friend's boyfriend?
No, that's terrible.
