MARKY FRESH ($175,000 – $187,000)

The year was 1984 and I was in 7th grade.

On my way to Walt’s Variety on Concession Street, I heard a magical sound that would shape my musical taste – forever!

A rapper named LL Cool J had just released his newest album titled, ‘Radioand ‘Rock the Bells’ was rockin’ my world!

Over the next few months, I boxed up my childhood toys and immersed myself in all things Hip-Hop.

My mother bought me a navy K-Way suit and a book called,‘Breakdancing where “Mr. Fresh and The Supreme Rockers show you how to do it!”

And I desperately wanted to know ‘how to do it’!

3 months later, after hours upon hours of religiously practicing the moves from my book, I auditioned to join a local Breakdance Crew – The Street Rockers and made the cut!

Agonizing over the options, I finally chose my ‘B-Boy name – Marky Fresh.

I spent every free moment I had honing my specialty lockin’ ‘n’ poppin’!

My signature move – The King Tut!

While my parents scratched their heads, wondering what had happened to their little boy,Marky Fresh’ relished in his newfound passion and the camaraderie The Street Rockers provided.

What does this have to do with Match and Fable’s latest role?

Nothing really.
