On The Lying Game, Thayer’s great at playing detective and getting to the root of lies. But now it’s time for Christian Alexander to play a lying game of his own! We put the actor, who was born in Greece, in our “Truth or Lie” hot seat, and this is what he fessed:
I was a good student.
True! Graduated with a 4.0 GPA and was an honor student. (Don’t ask me how much of it I retained though.)
I send over 500 texts a month.
LIE! I send 499 texts each month. One more and my bill would quadruple, so I really try to hold myself back.
I’m a pretty good singer.
LIE! I am quite possibly the worst singer on the face of the planet. I can’t even sing “Happy Birthday” in tune (on tune?).
I had my first kiss in high school.
True! Senior year was my first REAL kiss. Better late than never.
I passed my driver’s test on the very first try.
True! I actually aced it.
I was popular in school.
True. Kind of. I was on good terms with pretty much everyone.
I never forget a friend’s birthday.
LIE! If you don’t remind me several times or if I forget to write it down, I will forget.
My bedroom is usually a mess.
LIE! If you know me, you know I’m a clean FREAK. I vacuum and dust at least three times a week.
I’m an awesome cook.
True! I love to cook as well as bake. Might even consider going to cooking school down the road. It’s the ultimate therapy.
I have a crush on someone right now.
True! But it’s too dangerous for me to say here. I don’t know who’s reading this so I have to take precautions.
Now, Christian, finish these sentences:
The last little white lie I told was…that I never lie.
It’s totally acceptable to lie when…never, really. It’s always best to be honest.
