A thing of beauty is a joy forever; Its loveliness increases; it will never Pass into nothingness. ~ ~John Keats. 1795-1821
Michelle…Great to have you on Pim. You are one of PIMS top 100 in the FHM Models 2009. Wow? How did that campaign begin for you. Were you ecstatic when you got the news? how do you fancy your chances.?To be honest, a couple of friends had said to me I should enter this competition, so figured why not, it’s something I have thought about entering for a while now. I couldn’t believe that I was picked for the top 100 when I got the call I asked the person like 3 times if this meant I was really a part of the top 100, I was over the moon! There are some very beautiful girls in the competition making this a difficult question to answer…I really want to see myself in the top 10 and hopefully winning this!
Whats a typical day in the life of Michelle Pinho?
Wake up, have some All Bran and then hit gym to get me going for the day. Then off to the office to grip on all the day has to offer in the media industry…once I’m done with work, it’s off to the gym I go. After that it’s home time with a healthy dinner waiting for me. Depending on what day it is will depend on if it ends of with college in the evening. If it’s the weekend it normally ends off with good friends and drinks to finish off the week.
Back to the FHM models. So is it tough. What have you been doing in terms of getting them votes. Give us a brief itenary on what you have to do to compete in this comp 100%. Are u doing alot of shoots etc.
Well if I told you what I am up to with regards to “marketing” myself for the competition I would have to kill you…lol…I cannot divulge in such delicious information in case of the “competition” having a quick squiz! But if you must know, with all the work, gym, and studying, along with the part time modeling I do, there hasn’t been much time for me to sit down and actually give much thought to the random voting party, etc, I have been relying a lot on my facebook group http://www.facebook.com/groups.php?ref=sb#/group.php?gid=30351562074
So suppose you win FHM MODELS Michelle , you are probably on a stringint fitness regime. What are you doing to maintain that hot bod?
At the moment I gym twice a day, normally 30 min to an hour of cardio in the morning and weight training in the evening, as well as an extremely healthy eating plan…luckily I don’t have a sweet tooth making healthy eating a piece of cake…
If you could KIDNAP any sportsman,who wud that be ha ha?Kimi Raikkonen
Your dream shoot…Pick a location, a theme ?
For the cover of an international magazine (like FHM) in swimwear on some exotic island with white sand and blue blue seas, cos I love being in my bikini…
Oh and what would you regard as the sexiest part of your body and a guys?
My stomach – it’s naturally toned and tanned.
On a guy – definitely his stomach (a hot sixpack).
What was the most bizarre and funny come on line that a guy has used on You?
Bizarre would be: “Every time you walk past me you make me cry…because your ass is like an onion”
Funny would be: “If you was a booger I would pick you first!”
2010..in SA…UR THOUGHTS..How do you think we will handle it, ?Are you optimistic about SA and the future in retrospect to the economy, change of presidency etc?
I think that the 2010 would be really good for the economy, bringing a lot of foreign currency, thus ensuring the boost we need. The beauty about 2010 is that it will open up the floodgates to tourism in our country even long after the 2010 is over, as many people around the world do not see our country as a tourist destination. Well with all the resignations happening within the ANC and this new party getting started brings reassurance to the people of South Africa that we are alive with possibilities and it shows us that democracy is very much a part of what the people of South Africa and of the world are all fighting for to this present day. Look at the USA elections, President Barak Obama has made a historical arrival as the 44th president of the United States of America, this is definitely going to have a ripple effect throughout the world, just like when President Nelson Mandela fought for our freedom that we strive to keep. So yes I’m very optimistic about the future of
Whats the most dangerous or daring thing that you have ever done?
I have never tried bunjee jumping, although I am keen to go sky diving…but til now the only daring thing I have done was taking my mini on a skidpad, doing handbrake turns and all that other advanced driving stuff. Not very extreme but loads of fun.
Whats ur favourite fashion brand? Ed Hardy and Guess and Bvlgari
If you had a million rand, What would be your first purchase? Clear Heels…lol…disgusting…I would purchase a trip to Milan for fashion shows and a major shopping spree
Favorite Food and Drink? 24 hour wimpy at 3am and favourite drink…Jagerbombs!
Favorite perfume on a guy? Jaun Paul Gaultier and Guess
Favorite perfume on u? Black XS
Favorite clubbing and Hangout? St Tropez and either my place with a couple of good friends, good music and good food!
One wish you would like to come true? If I had one wish, it would be for all my wishes to come true
Would you say a woman can learn how to be a model, or modeling is something in the genes? you have it or you don’t have it at all? Why do you think so?
Modelling is definitely something that comes naturally, there are not many girls that can get infront of the camera and feel comfortable.
If you could be anyone famous in the World today, Who would you want to be and Why?
Olga Kurylenko – the new Bond girl in Quantum of Solace. She is so hot and she gets to kick ass next to some of Hollywoods finest and of course she makes Daniel Craig look hot.
Are you single? Whilst we on the topic. How important is a guys dress sense to you.? So PIM can spruce up and impress someone like you
Yes I’m single, Mr Right just isn’t looking hard enough for me…Dress sense is so important, a guy with a nice pair of jeans (true religion / guess they fit the best) and maybe a pair of supergas and a nice t-shirt or shirt in a colour that shows off their tan..yummy!
Whats your ideal man? The rugged Cave Man look, or the sophisticated Gentleman. or someone different perhaps?
Chilled and laid back with a really good sense of humour. But if I had to choose between cave man or sophisticated gentleman I would go for the sophisticated guy.
If PIM had to take Michelle Pinho on a date. What would we have to do to blow your socks off lol?
Go diving at sadwana bay and end off at sunset having cocktails and dinner under the stars.
lol.Good luck Michelle. A pleasure to have you on PIM. Best of luck with the Modelling
