Get To Know Jayma Mays

This Throwback Thursday, instead of bringing you guys my typical red carpet makeover, I thought I'd add a little spice to the mix. A little ginger spice if you will; with this redheaded beauty, Jayma Mays!! (See what I did there?)  

Jayma is best known for her germaphobe character, Emma on Glee. You can now catch her in upcoming roles on The Adventures of Puss in Boots on Netflix and Mena, a thriller film starring Tom Cruise! In the meantime, check out this hilarious Q&A and get to know my good friend, Jayma a little bit better.

Would you rather have permanent Cheeto dust fingers, or have a popcorn kernel stuck between your teeth for the rest of your life? 

That's too easy. Cheetos fingers. That's like heaven. Next.

You're on death row— what's your final meal?

A steak and two dirty martinis then exactly the same again.

What was the last song you sang at karaoke? 

Benny and the Jets. Which you think is a really fun song choice until you realize about 30 seconds in that it's a five minute song and you just keep saying "Be-be-be-benny" over and over again.  So exhausting. Now I know why they made Elton a Sir.

What’s your infamous party trick? 

I can keep one eye still while the other one moves around.  A skill I developed over the summer when I was about 8 years old. I can also sing Benny and the Jets.

Which president is the sexiest? 

VERY difficult question, Jamie.  I thought I would pick off of their facial hair.  Right now I would say Taft is in the lead with his very steampunk/hipster cool mustache.  I like Taft's tufts.

If you made it to the Olympics, which game would you dominate? 

Shot put. Stupid question.

Morning mantra? 


You love to cook and bake. Let's be honest— who would win in a bake off between you, Gordon Ramsay and Martha Stewart? 

ME!!!!!!!!!! Mwahahahahahahahaha! Right this second, I literally have four meringues in the oven for a massive pavlova. A pavlova that could take over THE WORLD!

Biggest thing you miss about working on Glee?

Does it sound selfish if I say my wardrobe?

What project are you working on now? 

Playing the voice of Dulcinea on "Puss in Boots" (Netlix, ya'll). And I just finished a role playing a foul-mouthed Attorney General in a movie called "Mena". My Mom is gonna wash my mouth out with soap when she sees it.

Where can people find you? 

You mean like stalkers? They don't need to find me - I'll find them.
