Can't really objectively say if anyone's a beauty, or handsome, or eccentric. Not liking these subjective questions.
I usually don't either, but I was bored of going through the usual litany of questions and thought I'd see if I could find a shortcut. I was thinking along the lines of scandals the mystery guest may have been involved in and settled on "eccentric." Just a fleeting whimsy.
