Check out Parker‘s five secrets below and make sure to give him a follow on Instagram at @officialparkermatthews.

1. When I was a younger, I used to go outside of my house and dance in the rain, pretending to be on set of a music video.

2. I’m an adrenaline junkie and anything daring has my name written all over it.

3. As funny as it sounds, my biggest fear is putting my face in the water without goggles, but I’m not afraid to swim!

4. I used to be a gymnast and a dancer, so I can throw down on the dance floor

5. Growing up, to strengthen my voice, I used to practice hitting high notes and maintaining pitch literally day and night. I’m not sure how my parents put up with that, haha, but thankfully, they did.
