Danie Skredsvig! Here is a little Q&A I asked Danie after she was crowned 2013 Fitness Fest Champ; EDGE: Were you shocked to find out that you won? Ummm, duh! I was astonished!

I know I haven’t seen it all, but an “actual” medicinal ice-cream? “Paging Dr. Placebo, paging Dr. Placebo. Would you please come to the justification room in the Bullsh*t wing please?” Not to be too harsh but c’mon man!
