What’s your ethnicity?
I’m Half Filipino and Half Irish.
Do you relate to your Filipino side?
I lived in the Philippines for a while and I got in touch with my Filipino culture and my family. I have a good amount of Filipino friends right now as well.
Who would you go lesbian for?
I gotta say Adriana Lima. She’s Brazilian. She’s so sexy you can’t go wrong with her.
Who’s the hottest guy on the planet?
Chris Hemsworth. Thor. He’s hot.
What are the secret hotspots in Vegas?
For food – Pho Kim Long. It’s really good and it’s an industry spot. Get the chicken wings. Other than that nothing comes to mind. I’ve been here for so long that I don’t even go clubbing anymore.
What do you do besides modeling?
I’ve worked as a bottle popper before and right now I’m a cigar roller and a ring girl at the World Series of Fighting. I’m definitely familiar with the nightlife industry.
Are you single or taken?
Single. I’m just so busy career-wise that I don’t have time for a relationship. If it happens it happens, but you know that saying “If you go looking for it then it won’t happen.” I’ve dealt with so much bullshit in my life that I know what I want and what I don’t want.
I think that only works for girls. Guys need to get out there and pursue.
That’s true. Guys do need to do the pursuing. But I feel like girls are always the ones pursuing these days. Girls have so little self-esteem nowadays and are always going out there and pursuing guys. They need to stop doing that.
I heard it’s hard to date guys in Vegas.
No my ex was the nicest guy in Vegas. But I have dated a few douchebags here though, honestly.
Where would you meet guys? At the club?
HELL no. Definitely not the club. I have no idea where.
What do you need in a guy?
Sense of humor. Smart. I want to talk about politics and they need to know how to contribute to the conversation. As far as looks I don’t have a certain look. Personality goes a long way. They can’t be ugly as shit though, there has to be some kind of attraction. I’m not going for ugly bald dudes.
Have you ever liked an uglier guy?
Yeah, well not really. But I’d go for someone like Seth Rogen or Kevin James. Their personality & humor sets them apart. Definitely not someone like Mike the Situation. No guidos.
What’s your #1 dating tip for guys?
Open the car door. OPEN the GODDAMN car door. My ex, he was the first guy to actually do that and it really set him apart. I was like, “holy shit what is this?” when he did that. If you do it you might be one of the few guys that actually opens the door for her and she’ll remember you.
I feel like girls these days with poor self-esteem let guys walk all over them. I don’t do that. You better open my damn car door.
