NAME: Kate Durocher
PROFESSION: TV Host
1.How do you describe yourself in one sentence? I’m a free-spirit who’s extremely determined, loyal and fiery.
2.How do you know Margie?
She hired me as a host for Face Five
3.Which achievement are you especially proud of? One achievement I’m especially proud of is being accepted to and graduating from the University of Southern California. Moving to California was always I dream I had, but never thought it’d be a reality. I applied to USC on a whim without expecting to hear back and when I did, I immediately started sobbing I was so excited.
4.What moves and encourages you?
My faith in Christ and the community of people I’ve found at my church and in my life who love, support and call me to be better.
5.Are you upset about critique?
I welcome critique and handle it well- how else will I grow without it?
6.Where does your next trip lead you to?
I plan to go to Japan next to visit my best friend who’s working at Tokyo Disney for the next year. I love to solo travel so this would be a great excuse to travel by myself, but also spend time with a friend for a portion of the trip!
7.What can your assistant or help do that your smart phone can’t? Pick out my outfits for me.
8.Are you a night owl or early bird and why?
Both, I pretty much never sleep. But if I do get to sleep, I go to bed pretty early.
9.Whom would you like to dine with present or past (even a historic person)?
Sandra Bullock! I adore her both as a person and as an actress and would love to learn from her.
10.If you would bestow a decoration, order or honor who would receive it?
My little sister, Corinne, for being fearlessly her. She’s bold and unapologetic about it and I admire her for it.
11.What is your favorite restaurant?
There’s a steakhouse in my hometown called J. Alexander’s that will always be my favorite, even if there are way better restaurants in L.A. I go here every time I visit home with my family and it’s a tradition that we get all dressed up and all order our same dishes to share. I get this chocolate lava cake to go and then eat it in bed after our nice dinner out. Going to this restaurant holds fond memories for me and that’s why it’s my top.
12.The best place after a party night out in town?
13.How can you be treated with a culinary delight?
I love anything chocolate or ice cream, or any sweets really
14.How do you relax?
I usually unwind by watching my favorite TV shows or reading a mystery novel. If I need some deep relaxation, I love to go to a guided meditation class or go for a walk along the beach in Venice.
15.If you could be someone else for a week, who would that be?
My Pastor, Kim McManus. She’s the most impressive woman I’ve ever met. Her love for Jesus and her commitment to showing others his love is inspiring. She travels the world doing missions work and I had the pleasure of going to Malawi, Africa with her. She’s spunky, hilarious and never complains. Now that’s someone I’d want to experience being like!
16.Your biggest hero?
My Aunt Cheryl. She’s been my hero since I was a child because she’s the most selfless person I know. She is always giving, even when she has nothing and she does all she can to help others (including working midnights as a nurse her entire life).
17.Which character attributes do you treasure?
Empathy, courage and honesty.
18.Which book did you read last?
I read a ton of mystery novels so one of many of those. And The
19.What is a perfect day?
Wake up early, head to this cute coffee shop on Venice beach that makes lattes with coconut milk, read on the beach for a while and then walk around Abbott Kinney or somewhere on the West Side and end the night with a glass of wine on my rooftop.
20.What are you proud of?
Who I am today. Who I am now is not who I was yesterday, a month ago or last year. I’ve changed and grown immensely with time and each day I become more loving, kind and accomplished. I’m turning into the person I always dreamed of being and it’s been a long road getting here- I’ve been hurt a lot and made a ton of mistakes, but they were all worth it if it meant shaping me into who I am now.
21.Which dream do you want to fulfill yourself?
22.Whats your favorite drink?
Moscow Mule, I LOVE ginger beer
23.Your biggest success?
This past year has been hugely successful for me. I landed two secure TV hosting jobs, have acted in numerous films and commercials, did a big scale modeling gig for a calendar and traveled the world helping others. 2018 is my year!
24.Your biggest down?
I struggle with attachment issues, depression and PTSD and when I allow them to, those things can really hinder me, and for years they did. For years I let those illnesses win, they almost ruined my life. But with time, I’ve developed a relationship with Christ that’s healed all of my wounds and left me much stronger so now, if those things surface again, I know I can fight them with confidence.
25.What can’t you understand?
How Americans and people in wealthy countries can have SO much, but always be complaining, while people in places such as Malawi, Africa have nothing and are INCREDIBLY joy filled. We don’t know how good we have it.
26.Which talent would you like to have?
I’d love to be able to sing better. I’m not the worst, but let’s just say I only mouth the words on the high notes.
27.Share a life wisdom with us?
No matter how low you get or how many times you hit rock bottom, you can always change your life and fight your way back up.
28.Life is too short to?
Allow people to hold you back. If a friendship, relationship, co-worker or anything is preventing you from being who you’re called to be, you need to either address the issue or move on.
29.How do you define luxury?

I always have ice cream in my freezer. I have a serious sweet tooth.

I just try to serve others and use my gifts and talents to do the same.
