Sofia, 31, shared that she personally liked "coaches." But Abby doubled down on liking athletes. "Not one that used to be in high school, but one that is,” she stated, at which point Sofia abruptly ended the interview.

Abby said: “If you saw the movie All the Right Moves starring Tom Cruise playing a high school football star, then you will know exactly what I’m talking about. And if you haven't, go watch it, and then you'll know."

She also said she had a high school reunion coming up and that she hoped Tom would be there. “But if he’s not, I heard Tom Brady’s available," she concluded with a smile.
