Sultry model Alexandra Shadowens is the epitome of sexiness. The blonde bombshell hails from the Midwest and has scorched up Maxim and a plethora of other sites throughout the web. Why? See for yourself…
Where are you originally from? I am originally from a “village” of 1200 people called Cobden in Southern Illinois.
What was it like growing up in such a small place like Cobden? Being as Cobden is so small, it was a very rural area, so you not only knew everyone in town, you also know everyone in the county. Everyone is friendly (when I went home to visit two businesses I went to with my puppy Jameson gave him doggy treats). When someone flashes their tail lights or head lights at you it’s code for either (a) your headlights aren’t on (b) there’s a cop ahead or (c) there’s a deer near. The traffic isn’t bad and you aren’t constantly getting honked or yelled at by other drivers. It is hard for people to understand the simplistic lifestyle lived there but the same people you judge will be the first to lend you a helping hand. I’m proud of being from Southern Illinois.
What were you like growing up? Growing up I was the awkward girl, I used to be so obsessed with my schoolwork that I would stay up really late to do homework that wasn’t due for days. I was constantly doing extra credit and was involved in many groups in school including Beta Club. Then, I entered high school and became rebellious, I spent my time trying to grow up too fast and that I did. However, I am glad that I went through that phase at a younger age as opposed to later in life which is what I have noticed in some adults. After that lifestyle bored me, I began running in beauty pageants to prepare myself for college, overcome my fear of public speaking, and to focus more on giving back to the community.
What is your ethnicity? I am Caucasian. That is all I know.
What are your measurements? I am 5’4” (fun size) 32-22-32 and about 105 pounds 🙂
Give us 5 words that you think best describe you? I am going to be honest here, I was a little intrigued as to what my friends would say about me so I asked them to describe me in 5 words and these were the most common answers: Intelligent. Beautiful. Loving. Underestimated. Considerate.
Do you have any hobbies or special talents? I love cleaning & cooking, I don’t know if those are considered hobbies but it is what I chose to do in my free time to clear my mind and feel a sense of accomplishment. I am a people pleaser so I love hosting parties and entertaining.
How would you describe your personality? I am a true Gemini. I get bored easily, am very social, embrace change, and like to think I’m clever. I am constantly changing my hair, my style, and have moved at least 10 times the past 5 years. If you research Gemini traits it pretty much describes me to a T.
What would you say is your best asset? I would say my sense of humor is my best asset, but I think that I have been most complimented on my eyes, which are the window to my soul so I will take that.
How did you get started in modeling? I was working at Show Me’s (a tank top little short style restaurant) and shot for their calendar. I was very pleased and surprised to get the cover & month of June. I had a lot of great people in my life at the time that encouraged me to pursue modeling further.
What do you enjoy most about modeling? I absolutely love to travel, meet new people, and experience the lifestyles and cultures of different people. I have met some of my best friends and hold very fond memories from my modeling adventures.
Out of all of your features do you have a personal favorite? I currently have a poster posing with another model in stores such as Spencers, FYE, and all over the internet. The feedback & support I have received from family, friends, and fans really makes me happy. My friends have sent me pics of them posing by the poster from all over the country, it is very amazing to think that I have been a part of something that could be around for longer than I.
If you could be on the cover of any magazine which magazine would you want it to be? This is tough to answer because I am very grateful to be in any magazine, I love them all.
Let’s switch gears to learn more about what makes you tick. What type of man are you attracted to? I love the Bradley Cooper type (or at least the roles he plays) tall, sarcastic, witty, funny, and intelligent.
What trait about a man do you find irresistible? I am a sucker for guys that can make me laugh. There is something so great about being around people who don’t take life and everything so seriously.
What body part of a man do you think is sexiest? This would just depend on the man. Everyone has something amazing and sexy about them and I never look for a certain physical trait.
When it comes to your taste in men, pick one: “the bad boy” or “the nice guy”? I would chose the nice guy! I have fallen for a “bad boy” before but they are like fixer uppers. To think that you can make them change their bad boy ways to have a real relationship is unrealistic. So they are cool to hang out with, but not to take home to the family.
How does a man keep you interested once he’s caught your attention? Like I said before I find a sense of humor to be a key component. Also, I really don’t think that surprises every now then hurt either. When I am interested in someone I always think to myself ” what is it that I can do that no one else has ever done for them and wouldn’t normally think to do”. So, with that being said I like to get them a thoughtful gift. For example, an ex of mine loved Nike Shox but he had very large feet (I think a size 14) so it was hard for him to find shoes he actually liked as opposed to what fit him, I went online and custom ordered him a pair of Shox in his favorite colors.
Let’s take it up a notch, are you the quiet type in the bedroom or the loud one? Well I guess that would depend if I were actually in a bedroom or not. (lol). I like to be adventurous but sometimes that calls for being quiet so you don’t get caught.
When it comes to men, what are some of your turn offs? I am very health and body conscience so I am not attracted to people who don’t take care of themselves. I feel that if you can’t commit to make yourself healthier and better that it shows a lack of self worth. You have to love yourself before you can love anyone else.
What’s the most memorable thing a guy has done to get your attention? I have always loved Tom Petty and as a complete surprise he got me tickets to go on one of our first dates to see him and we had really REALLY good seats. It was so surreal I have no idea how he pulled that off.
Do you have a quote that you live by? “You come to love not by finding the perfect person but by seeing an imperfect person perfectly.” I strongly believe that you can find good in anyone. Positive reinforcement is such an amazing tactic to use in life.
What is your favorite city? I would have to say I LOVE Jamaica, which I realize isn’t a city. But it is such a lovely place, the locals are so wonderful and it is filled with beauty.
What is your favorite sports team? The Chicago White Sox and of course the Chicago Bulls!!! I really enjoy watching court side (Bulls) and from a box (Sox).
