Cassie Scerbo said of her training for the show: They trained us a month ahead of time, on the beach, running through sand, doing crab-walks and pull-ups, everything you can imagine. It was torture! Then we also trained on the different apparatuses. They taught us the appropriate posture and technique, just the basics. And then we have the doubles come in and do the things we arent allowed to do, like flips and jumps (seventeen.com).
Other parts have followed, including roles in CSI: Miami and Teen Spirit. She has also sung the National Anthem at sporting events.
Cassie Scerbo is also the youth ambassador for BOO2Bullying. I think cyber-bullies are cowards and embarrassing people, and whether you can see them or not, deep down they know what theyre doing is wrong. No matter how much they try to act like they dont, they do. She added, Im a big believer in Karma. If youre spreading hate, then youre going to get some hate back in your life. Just be a good person, spread love and youll get the love back (cambio.com).
Cassie Scerbo said she had been bullied in real life, but looks at it as a form of flattery. If someones bullying you and actually taking time out of their day to try and hurt you, then hey, youre like the center of their world. I would just be like, Cool, thats obvious Im doing something right if you want to bully me.
