One on One with Cover Model Melissa Fisher
Where are you originally from?
San Diego, California - Born & Raised
What was it like growing up in San Diego?
I grew up in Santee, a suburban city in San Diego County. I still live in San Diego County now, but I spend a lot of time commuting back and forth between here and Los Angeles.
What are your measurements?
I'm 5'8" and my measurements are 32D-25-35
Give me 5 words that you think best describe you?
What would you say is your best asset?
I would have to say my personality and sense of humor. I'm fun loving and pretty laid back so a lot of people find me easy to get along with. I would also add that my eyes to that list as well. That is what others compliment me on the most.
That's good to hear. How long have you been a model? How did you get started in the business?
My mom actually had me modeling as a baby so I suppose you can say I started modeling at a really young age. As I got older, I went into a “super awkward” stage that was so bad, my mom pretty much told me I shouldn’t model anymore. That lasted four or five years and then everything grew back in to proportion so I started modeling again when I was seventeen.
You got to keep me on my toes, I get bored very easily.
What do you enjoy most about modeling?
The thing I enjoy the most about modeling is the fact that I get paid to travel. In the past several months I've been to Paris, New York, and a few other places. I love to fly and to experience new cultures and see the world and the fact that I'm getting paid to do it just makes it that much better. Also I've had the pleasure of working with amazing people and it doesn't seem like work at all.
Outside of modeling, what are some your hobbies?
I like to have a good time, but I have no problem with keeping it low key either. I would have just as much fun at the club on Friday night as I would at the movies. I think the most important think is who you're with. Sunday Fundays are probably my favorite. Watching football and drinking a few beers is always fun. I also like snowboarding, going to the beach and anything outdoorsy.
Let's talk about what catches your eye. What type of man are you attracted to?
It’s pretty sexy when a guy is ambitious, confident, funny and good at what he does. Generally speaking, the way he carries himself determines a lot.
What trait do you think is most important in determining someone's attractiveness?
Definitely personality. Of course a person's looks is what initially draws me to them but a good personality can make or break it.
What qualities do you think the man of the future should have?
Chivalry. I love when guys opens the door for me. I think it's adorable when guys have manners. Also, they must be responsible. If they are irresponsible or lazy, I'm over it.
What part of a man do you think is sexiest?
I reeeeeeeeeally like a man's back. I don't know what it is, but muscular backs are sexy.
Once you've noticed him, how does a man keep you interested?
The best way to keep my interests is to be independent and not needy. I also hate when guys turn boring. You got to keep me on my toes, I get bored very easily.
In contrasts, what are some of your turn offs?
As far as turn-offs, laziness and a lack of hygiene are probably the two worst things.
Would you say you are pretty comfortable with your body?
Well, because I pretty much live in a bathing suit, I have to be very comfortable with my body. Everyone has things that they are insecure about but as long as I'm happy with it, I could care less what people think. If you don't like it, then dont look
Amen. Since you travel a lot, what is your favorite city to visit?
New York City! I just recently got back from visiting a few of my best friends out there and I loved it. The food was amazing and I loved how everything stayed open late because I'm quite the night owl.
Awesome. Well, it was great getting to know you. Where can our readers find you?
