PIM: Tarrin You from beautiful Cape Town Tell us about yourself, How did the journey to modelling Begin?Tarrin: I’m just your average down to earth, girl next door kind of gal and I guess it all started when I went on a journey to better myself as a person but mostly physically at the end of 2010, I lost 25kg and competed in my first fitness show.
Wow! What are some of your goals of being a model. Where would you want to be in ten years time? I would like to be a featured athlete on the simply shredded website and grace the front cover of SA Fitness & Lifestyle Mag (well hopefully a few magazine in ten years time)
You quite into fitness comps. How did you get attracted to competing in these events.? I have always been the girl who sat and admired the girls on the front cover of the fitness mags and one morning I decided enough was enough, instead of wishing to look like them I was going to make it happen. I set a goal to lose the weight, tone up and get stage ready!
Is it hard work to get into shape for these comps? It is hard work and more so mentally, you have to really wrap your mind around the dieting part. I can for one say it is hard work because I wasn’t blessed with the perfect genes, I have to work hard to keep myself in good shape.
How do you prepare for them? Do tell? I train twice a day at 5am and then again at 5pm, morning cardio on an empty stomach and then resistance training at night. I prep my meals the night before to take with me to work or out if I am out and about on the weekends. The diet is the most important thing on the journey to any comp and that can make you go insane, no carbs for 8-10 weeks before a competition, they call it a beauty competition but I can tell you now there is nothing beautiful about the preparation until that moment you walk on stage and that is when you realise why it is beautiful and all worth it!
What would you say was your proudest achievement? My biggest achievement in my mind thus far was losing 25kg and getting my body fat from 39% to 8% to compete in my very first Fitness show.
Wow Again. If PIM wants a 6 Pack, What do you recommend we do? Abs are made in the kitchen, change the way you eat!
Speaking of which. What’s a typical day in the life of Tarrin Hagan ? Wake up and be awesome 🙂
If you could cook PIM any meal and desert to blow us away. What would that be? This girl can cook hey – I make a mean lasagne and even though it isn’t much of a desert everyone raves about my Red Velvet cupcakes…send me PIM’s HQ addy I might send you a batch if you lucky.
If you had to have KIDNAP any sportsman/celeb, who would that be ha ha? Cristiano Ronaldo – enough said!
Your dream shoot. Pick a location, a theme? A beach shoot anywhere in Thailand would do thanks, I am totally in love with Thailand.
Whats your secret when you in front of the Camera? Picture the camera man and crew naked then I don’t feel so uncomfortable and alone hahaha
Oh and what would you regard as the sexiest part of your body and a guys? I would have to say my eyes and on a guy well those V-lines will do the job thanks!
What was the most bizarre and funny come on line that a guy has used on You? Baby you must be a screen door cause your body is banging, I couldn’t help but laugh after I looked at him all funny, I let him buy me a drink for the effort LOL
What’s one great thing about Cape Town? The people and of course there is nothing like when you have been away on holiday or business and you fly back home, that first glimpse of Table Mountain is enough to leave anyone in awe.
Tell us about one talent that you have that we never able to guess? I’m not sure if you would consider being able to tie knots in a cherry stick with my tongue a talent, but I can do that…want to see 😉
What’s your favourite fashion brand? Louis Vuitton
If you had a million rand, What would be your first purchase? Really? Only a million?…If I was being irresponsible I would really like to buy an Audi R8
Favorite Food and Drink: Anything Italian or Thai will do and I would have to say a Vida e Chocolate Frio
If you had to get someone drunk quickly, What would you order them at the bar he he he? Mmmhhhh a double Stroh Rum and cream soda, it actually tastes a lot better than it sounds and does the job, Oh and if it isn’t the kind of establishment that sells cream soda then a lemonade will do 😉
Favourite perfume on you: Hypnotic Poison, I would so do me!
One wish you would like to come through? To meet the person I am going to share my life with…I know he is out there, I just think he got lost. Would PIM please give him directions LOL
A quote that you always live by: Never a failure always a lesson
If we snuck into your bedroom, what could we find you sleeping in? Depends on the weather, nothing mostly or boy shorts and if it’s cold I will add a t-shirt
What type of music have you been listening too lately: Mostly trance, I gym to it.
Last movie you watched? The Impossible
What do you do to feel sexy? Go to a salon and get pampered, Hair, nails, waxed the works… then I feel sexy and on top of the world.
PIM loves your tattoos, Tell us about them. Are u getting any more 🙂 Thank you, I have 5 and they all symbolise something in my life for eg. The Thai writing down my right side, when translated says “She fly’s with her own wings” just a symbol to say that I don’t conform I am me, I do my own thing and yes the plan would be to get maybe 1 more but they so addictive.
If you could be anyone famous in the World today, who would you want to be and Why? Angelina Jolie, she is beautiful, has a gorgeous husband, she has money and balances her family life and work life and still manages to do her CSI (Corporate social investment) work
What do you think of the Playboy Brand in South Africa? I think it is kind of cool, it’s classy yet tasteful. I think there is s stigma attached to brands such as Playboy but we have other magazine’s in SA, like Cosmopolitan who also show boob and have articles on sex, so what is the difference really.
Describe your day if you did not have your Blackberry/I phone/smartphone? Only one word comes to mind – LOST
What do you prefer on a guy.Boxers or Briefs? Briefs, tighty whities
Whats your take on friends with Benefits.? Been there done that, someone always ends up getting hurt.
Are you single? To mingle
Whilst we on the topic, How important is a guy’s dress sense to you? VERY! Yes I like a guy for his personality but there is nothing better than a guy who has a great dress sense – instant attraction.
So PIM can spruce up and impress someone like you. What’s your ideal man? If you were Channing Tatum in Magic Mike, I would be SOLD! Ok all jokes aside, my ideal man is someone who is caring and affectionate, a good sense of humour is a must, but he must be able to be serious when it is needed. A man who knows what he wants out of life and is able to take charge and not expect me to always choose where we eat dinner. I’m a bit of a romantic so if he has romantic qualities that would be great and without being fussy could he please dress nicely as well, oh yes and smell nice *weak at the knees*
If Tarrin wanted to impress PIM, What would you do to blow PIM away on a date…Details please,,,from dressing up to activities ?Mmmhhh that is a little bit difficult as I am not sure what PIM likes, you are not giving me much to work with here…romance or adventure…I’d like to wear a tight little black cocktail dress with stilettos though – would that impress PIM?
Indeeeed 🙂 Where would we see you soon? On stage at the IFBB Battle of the Titans in the bikini line up.
Good luck Tarrin PIM wishes you all the best in the future Thanks you guys
