Welcome to part three of our GISHWHES series! In our GISHWHES series, we’ll talk to different Supernatural actors who are participating in this year’s hunt and ask them a few fun questions. One other cool part about this – you can win a spot on their team! You can see the first part, with Emily Swallow – here and the second part with Osric Chau – here.
This time, we talked to Alaina Huffman (Abaddon on Supernatural) who has named her team Team Hells Belles!
G.I.S.H.W.H.E.S. (The Greatest International Scavenger Hunt the World Has Ever Seen) takes place August 5th to 12th.
If you’ve never heard of Gishwhes before, here’s a little background information:
Gishwhes is a 7-time Guinness World Record breaking scavenger hunt hosted by Supernatural actor and Random Acts co-founder Misha Collins. You can compete from anywhere in the world.
The items on the list range, but could be anything from “perform a sock puppet show at a children’s hospital” to “get the word “gishwhes” written on something in space.”
At the end of the hunt, a winning team is chosen to join Misha on a trip! Previous years Misha has taken the winning team to Rome, Scotland, British Columbia, Iceland and more. This year’s hunt, the winning team will join Misha in Hawaii!
We asked a few fun questions to Alaina, which you can see below!
Nerds and Beyond: What do you think your character on Supernatural would bring to a GISHWHES team?
Alaina: Other than total anarchy? Fun! Abaddon is a bit wild I must admit but she’s a lot of fun… if you’re not too sensitive.
Nerds and Beyond: If you had to come up with a new item for GISHWHES, what do you think it would be?
Alaina: I’m saving mine for when I’m asked to write an item… maybe next year huh, Misha Collins? 😉
Nerds and Beyond: What are you looking forward to about this year? Are you nervous?
Alaina: Nervous always. I’m preparing by taking lots of naps.
Nerds and Beyond: What other cast member – who is currently not doing GISWHES – would
you want on your team?
Alaina: I think Jensen Ackles would be a good team mate…he’s fun and not afraid to look crazy having fun!
Alaina also just posted a video with NFL player Marquette King about joining their team!
