CASUAL DRINKER: "I'm like PJ in that I'm not super high-maintenance," says Spiro of her tomboy alter ego. "But she could certainly drink me under the table any day of the week."

HEAD OF THE CLASS: "I'm passionate about travel," says Spiro, who taught English for three months in a village in Tanzania in 2005. "I'm in awe of the AIDS workers in Africa who teach there, year in and year out. That experience changed my life."

CHECKMATE: "I used to play chess when I was a kid and participate in national-level tournaments with the geekiest guys.
