As for any fun new skills she had to learn in order to slip into Sandy's boots, so to speak, Amoia reveals she got the chance to "really feel like a cowgirl" when she learned how to rope a bull.

"You kind of swing it around your head and you rope a bull. It wasn't a live bull," she quickly clarifies. "So anyway, I had to learn that and that was super fun."
