Shiri Appleby’s Superfan Submits 50 Questions & Gets Them all Answered

Lifetime’s “UnREAL” stars Shiri Appleby and Constance Zimmer answered questions submitted by fans via Twitter.
Maybe that was the initial plan, but instead the duo surprised one fan and only answered his questions. Even better the video was captioned “Shiri Appleby and Constance Zimmer answer UNREAL superfan @earlbny’s twitter questions.”

We asked Eric (@earlbny) how he felt being called the superfan by Shiri Appleby and Constance Zimmer and why he submitted 50 questions in the first place.

After I saw the tweet asking fans to submit question to Shiri and Constance. I came up with a question or 2 or 50. I was bored at work and just started tweeting questions. Little did I know they would answer only my questions. I still can’t believe it. When I went to the SAG event I got to talk to Shiri and Constance. Shiri told Constance that I was the superfan. I nearly lost it. My first reaction was OMG Shiri knows who I am. I was freaking out. I am still freaking out. I have now officially met Shiri six times. I never thought I would ever meet her let alone six times.
