The Fab Five

Season 5 contestants

 

Five Mormon Girls from Morgan Utah

From a dairy farm in rural Utah where life consisted of raising wheat, cows, and family, came five fabulous sisters who could accomplish daily dairy chores in the morning and dance like wildfire at dusk. Nearly three decades of dancing has brought tours, trophies, husbands, and kids. Ultimately, the sisters' lives have been filled with smiles and tears: their father lost his farm to economic hardships, a child with severe Cerebral Palsy and another with kidney disease, but through it all, family and dancing were there. Win or lose, The Fab 5 are forever family strong.  NBC.com

Terri Ferran Terri Ferran grew up in a small Colorado town that offered little in the way of entertainment. She escaped through reading (and later on a Continental Trailways bus), and although the town didn't have a library, she eagerly anticipated the coming of the Bookmobile and would check out stacks of books at a time.

She moved to Utah as a high school senior where she joined the LDS Church and met her husband, Tod. She dreamed of being a writer but took the safe route of becoming a CPA. She finally got brave enough to quit working in the safe world of numbers to pursue her dream of writing and also to spend more time with her children. She got her first book, Finding Faith published in 2007 and is excited to be living her dream of writing in real life.

Amy Freeze
meteorologist
Yes, that really is her name!

Amy Freeze is the weekend meteorologist at WABC-TV in New York. She was the chief meteorologist for Fox owned-and-operated station WFLD in Chicago from 2007–2011.

Freeze has certificate number 111 from the American Meteorological Society as a Certified Broadcast Meteorologist—she was one of the first 20 women in the world to receive this certification. In addition, Freeze has her National Weather Association and American Meteorological Society Seals of Approval. She is a three-time National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences Emmy Award winner.

Before joining WFLD, she worked for NBC's WCAU in Philadelphia for four years. During that time she went to the plaza in New York City to fill in for the "Weekend Today Show". She also worked in Denver at both KWGN and KMGH. She began her broadcasting career in Portland, OR at KPTV. Freeze had a cameo appearance in the "Scrubs" episode My Life in Four Cameras. Freeze uses viewers' digital photos capturing the weather, including them in her forecasts as "Freeze Frame." Amy created "The Freeze Factor"- a special segment where she rates the next days weather on a scale of 1 to 10.

During her time in Chicago, Freeze used to visit about 10,000 area students each year giving weather presentations on tornados and severe weather. She hosted the first ever Weather Education Days for MLB's Chicago White Sox, the Chicago Cubs, and for The Chicago Wolves Hockey team.

Freeze was the first ever female sideline reporter for Major League Soccer working for the Colorado Rapids, LA Galaxy, and the Chicago Fire. She currently does sideline reporting for the Chicago Fire.

Freeze has a website that teaches the reader how to record weather information of his or her own (see External links). Her Master Thesis (from the University of Pennsylvania) is an exclusive concept called the Stormwater Action Alert Program which she created during her research in Philadelphia. She has presented on the topic to many environmental groups.

Freeze is a Latter-day Saint. She met her husband, Dr. Gary Arbuckle, when she was a cheerleader at Brigham Young University and he was Cosmo the Cougar. She received a degree in communications from BYU and a degree in meteorology from Mississippi State University.

Jenny Jordan Frogley She's opened for Ray Charles, substituted for both Aretha Franklin and Gladys Knight and sung at Radio City Music Hall and Opryland . . . .
Pick up a local CD and chances are very good that she might be singing back-up vocals or an individual song or two  she appears on close to 100 albums.
      And if you play the "King Kong" video game, hers is the last voice you hear before you die.
