Paula is sweet, cute and quiet. At least it appears that way until this tomboy firecracker opens up her mouth and steps inside the kitchen. Paula is a perfectionist, and will ride you until you do it her way. Energetic and explosive in the kitchen, Paula makes people quit by yelling at them and making them feel like crap. But this Brazilian native is not a complete tyrant, and says she is kind both inside and outside of the kitchen and inside of the kitchen, when things are done her way.
