Happy Anniversary to us! TunerPlayground began exactly two years ago this month with some simple ideas and two people who were deeply passionate about cars, models, and the subculture surrounding them. Since then we've worked hard to adhere by the very principles that we were founded upon, which at its very core has always been about discovering and developing new and upcoming modeling talent. And although our company has grown to encompass the automotive, motorsport, modeling, nightlife, and entertainment industries from coast to coast (as well as in parts of Asia), this September is no different. Meet Amy Vang: she's five feet four inches of pure talent. Beautiful, outgoing, and full of ambition and confidence. We believe that she'll go very far - which is why we signed her. And to prove it, we've released over fifty exclusive photos of her and an in-depth interview just so you can see for yourselves.
TP: So we have to ask, how did you get into modeling? Were you discovered?
AV: I started doing pageants in 2008 and from then on I met photographers and started networking. The rest is history.
TP: How do you feel about signing exclusively with us? What were some of the important factors that led to your decision?
AV: I was extremely excited to become an Exclusive Model with you guys! I've always idolized the beautiful & smart women of TunerPlayground. It's an amazing feeling to be included in the company now.
TP: Well we're happy to have you. So do you consider yourself beautiful? What do you think is your greatest asset? What makes you unique?
AV: I believe beauty comes from within. We're all beautiful in our own way. I think my greatest asset is my smile. ^_^ My perspective on life is what sets me apart from everyone else out there. I like that I think differently.
TP: What was the first major event that you modeled at? What made it most memorable to you?
AV: My first major event was SpoCom San Mateo. I had an amazing time, it was very memorable.
TP: Who is your favorite model or celebrity of all time?
AV: My favorite model of all time just so happens to be the very first one you guys ever featured: Stephanie Ly! She has such a sweet demeanor, and she's so beautiful. My fantasy photoshoot with her would consist of sexy lingerie and teeny tiny bikinis. Hehe. ^_^
TP: Wow. We need to make that happen. Haha. So have you ever used your looks to take advantage of someone? Be honest.
AV: Honestly, yes. I do it all the time. In fact, while you were busy looking at my breasts, I stole a quick bite of your cookie! Hehe. ^_^
TP: LOL. So it was you! Haha. Tell us, what are your hobbies? Any hidden talents you'd like to share with the world?
AV: I'm a dancer and a book worm. Talents? Of course! Everything I touch turns into gold! Hahaha. Just kidding. I think confidence is sexy. We all need more of it!
TP: We agree. So what is your astrological sign? Do you believe in horoscopes?
AV: I'm a Libra baby! So I believe I am a fair and just person. As for horoscopes, I think sometimes they could be true, but in the end, I decide my own fate.
TP: Do you have any weird habits that no one else knows about?
AV: Haha. Umm. I hate washing my hair. My hair really has a mind of it's own, it does what it wants, when it wants. That's weird enough right? Haha.
TP: Sure. Haha. So what does a typical day look like for you? Where do you like to go for some time alone?
AV: Haha. I wish I had some time alone! My average day consists of work from 7am-4pm, then class until 10pm, then homework. Boring huh? But you gotta do what you gotta do. Get your money honey! Hehe. ^_^
TP: Haha. Yep. Favorite food? Drink? Place to eat?
AV: I love Vietnamese food. I crave it all the time. So any Pho place is good. As for drinking and playing, I love to spend as much time as I can with my family and friends, so wherever they are is where I like to be!
TP: Since we are an automotive interest website and most of our readers are motor-heads, we have to ask, what do you drive right now? What would you say your dream car is?
AV: I roll in a 2005 Scion TC 5-speed. I've narrowed my dream cars down to either a Lamborghini Gallardo or a Porsche Cayenne Turbo.
TP: Nice. We like that you can drive a stick. Is it safe to assume that you like to drive fast?
AV: Yes! Baby, I was born to drive fast cars. ^_^ I also like to ride bikes. I've never owned one, but I plan on getting a Kawasaki Ninja soon.
TP: Oh nice. A girl that likes to ride. Hehe. So does size matter for you? You know we're talking about car engines of course. Haha.
AV: Of course! The bigger the better. ^_^
TP: If we looked through your cell phone, what kinds of juicy things would we find on there?
AV: Lot's of games, text messages, and sexy pictures. Hehe.
TP: What item of clothing or accessory makes you feel the sexiest?
AV: Jewelry! I love to accessorize. The right pieces make everything come together.
TP: What has surprised you the most about modeling? What has your most memorable modeling moment been so far? Most embarrassing?
AV: I love modeling! The biggest surprise for me was that it's really a lot of hard work. It takes time, consideration, and thought to produce good pictures. My most memorable moments have been meeting all the important people that have helped me along the way. As for an embarrassing moment, so far I've been lucky. Cross your fingers! ^_^
TP: What do you look for in a guy? What would he have to do to get your attention and to keep you interested?
AV: Good teeth and hygiene, and most importantly, a good personality. I need a man who can make me laugh, and keep me tuned in. I hate being around boring people. A guy has to at least know how to carry on a good conversation.
TP: How do you feel about pick-up lines? What was the best line that was used on you? Did it work?
AV: I think pick up lines can be appropriate if they're used in the right context. Haha. But they can also be pretty annoying. I remember this one time, a guy tried to impress me by quoting a scene from 2 Fast 2 Furious. He took his eyes off the road and looked me in the eyes. Sadly though, he almost hit a tree. It was pretty damn funny. ^_^
TP: Hahaha. That's hilarious. So what is the weirdest thing that has ever happened to you on a date? How did the rest of the night go?
AV: Hmm. I rarely go out on dates, so this is hard. Okay I remember now. I went out with this one guy who was EXTREMELY HOT! Everything was going well until the weak sauce started to get drunk! I ended up having to drive him home, and on the way back, he threw up all over my car! Luckily I had an extra t-shirt to give him. And a breath mint. LOL. I never talked to him after that night. Yes. I need a man who can hold his liquor!
TP: So what gets you in the mood? What are some of your turn-ons?
AV: Hmmm. Music. Cuddling. And a bottle of Grey Goose will do it! Hehe. Oh, and I love guys that smell nice. ^_^
TP: On a scale of 1 to 10, how wild are you in the bedroom?
AV: I can honestly give myself a 20. Come on now, a girl like me has to be able to get down right? Hehe.
TP: Goodness. Haha. So what do you wear to bed?
AV: Oh hunny, you should know that I enjoy being in lingerie all day long, and that I also love being naked. I almost never wear anything to bed. Occasionally I'll have on a pair of lacy panties, but honestly, they don't stay on for too long. ^_^
TP: Wow. We need to start taking naps with you. Favorite position in the bedroom?
AV: Hehe. This is a tough one since I like so many different ones. I guess being on top would have to be my all time favorite!
TP: Haha. That seems to be a popular one. Okay. Switching gears now. Were you popular in high school? If so, why do you think that was?
AV: Not at all. I was really anti high school when I was younger. To be honest I'm not really even sure how I graduated. Haha. But here I am!
TP: Right on. So if you could have one superpower, what would it be and why?
AV: I'd want to be able to read people's minds. It would be pretty cool to know what everyone is thinking. ^_^
TP: Do you use Twitter? Facebook? Myspace? What do you think about social networking sites and how they have affected models these days?
AV: Yes! I am in EFFIN LOVE with social networking sites! I don't know how I can live without them now. I'm on them all the time, so follow me babes! As for affecting models, I think they've helped us to reach out to fans, friends, viewers, and to create a support system for our careers.
TP: So what are five things you never leave the house without?
AV: Cell phone. Credit cards. My car. Snacks. And drinks. Haha. I can be a hungry little hippo sometimes! ^_^
TP: Do you like to travel? Where have you been that you absolutely loved? Where would you like to go someday?
AV: I love traveling! But unfortunately I haven't been able to do much of it. Although I do love Southern California, especially San Diego. I love the warm sunny beaches. The one place I MUST go to before the end of the year is Hawaii. I also hope to go to go to Italy with my Mom soon. I've seen pictures and it's absolutely beautiful there!
TP: Where can your fans find you online?
AV: Search for me on Myspace, Facebook, and Twitter: "msamyvang" ^_^
TP: Where can your fans expect to find you with TunerPlayground next?
AV: My plan is to be at all of the NorCal and SoCal events with you guys for the remainder of the year. And I can only begin to imagine all the incredible things that we'll be doing together in 2011. We're going to do it bigger and better than before, so stay tuned! ^_^
TP: Sounds like a plan. I think it's time that we wrap up. Any last words? Shout outs? Feel free to plug yourself and your friends as much as possible...ready? Go!
AV: I want to thank everyone that's been supporting me all these years, especially my family: Chao, Ying, Julie, Tony, Mai, Kevin, and Devin. My wonderful parents, my mentors and friends. All of my Myspace and Facebooker friends, everyone who believes in me, and of course, all the awesome viewers out there - you guys rock! Be sure to follow me on Twitter and support me at my events. Special thanks to Tom and Keith for the opportunity, you guys are awesome! XOXO ^_^
