Meet Paris Nichole, the December 2011 winner of our 2012 Miss TransWorld WAKEBOARDING Model Search. We recently sat down with this 22-year-old model and student from Orlando to find out how long she’s been riding, what she looks for in a guy and how you might go about convincing her to board your wake boat.
You grew up in the Orlando area and now live here. What’s your experience been with wakeboarding? Well, I grew up in Winter Haven, and there isn’t much else there to do but play on the water. I first wakeboarded in high school and I’ve been exposed to a lot of wakeskating, but I have yet to be convinced to try it.
Do you have a favorite pro rider? I have to pick a family and say the Bonifays. They come from Polk county and they’re both a lot of fun to be around. They had my heart when I saw them in tights at a roller rink party.
Tell us a little about your modeling experience. What have you done in the past and what do you hope to do with it in the future? I started at 18 as a hobby but somehow I’ve managed to make it my job. Best job in the world I would have to bet. I’ve made a lot of amazing friends from it and had a lot of fun and that’s all I could want. Future? I don’t pretend to know what will happen tomorrow.
Looks like you’ve done some pretty active modeling campaigns in the past. What do you like to do in your free time? In my free time, I just like to lay low. I’m a chill person. A movie on the couch with a glass of wine or soaking up sunshine somewhere. I also love to paddleboard and kayak.
Turn-ons? A good smile. Someone that’s just a happy person.
Turn-offs? Someone that takes himself too seriously. You have to be able to laugh at yourself and goof around.
What would a guy have to do to get you out on his wake boat? Promise me some fun and sunshine with a lot of space for me to lounge.
