McHale is from Teaneck NJ which means that she probably got out to NYC a lot. Lots and lots of Chinese people in NYC, so I'm guessing that she's heard the language more.
She may also just be good at languages.
I just hope she won't lose to Minella she can lose to whoever she wants, but not to Minella.
