We must say, we were very excited about debuting our October featured model because she is simply incredible. Naturally beautiful, amazing in front of the camera, and brimming with a bright personality...these are all ways to describe Candace Roybal, our newest exclusively-signed & managed spokesmodel here at TunerPlayground. We have no doubt that Candace will go very far with her modeling career, and it fills us with a sense of pride when we think about how we'll be there to guide her along the way. But enough about that, let's get onto the good stuff. Scroll down for a very entertaining and personal interview, along with sixty never-before-seen photos. You'll love each and every one of them. We guarantee it.
TP: So we have to ask, how did you get into modeling? Were you discovered?
CR: Recently, I decided to begin taking modeling very seriously and it just so happens that I was discovered by Keith from your company.
TP: That's great. Tell us, how do you feel about signing exclusively with us? What were some of the important factors that led to your decision?
CR: I'm VERY excited to have such a great opportunity like this one be presented to me. I've heard so many wonderful things about TunerPlayground in the past, particularly about how beautiful the models are, and how much you guys love cars and motorsports.
TP: Well thank you. So do you consider yourself beautiful? What do you think is your greatest asset? What makes you unique?
CR: To me, beauty is something that shines from the inside out. Which is the reason why I think that I am beautiful. My greatest asset is my diverse personality...I've never met a person who I didn't get along with. ^_^
TP: That's wonderful. So tell us, who is your favorite model or celebrity of all time?
CR: My favorite model/celebrity of all time is Angelina Jolie. She is absolutely stunning with her looks and edgy personality. My fantasy photoshoot with her would consist of us in all black lingerie with guns, while driving a stolen muscle car. Haha. What do you think?
TP: Sounds great! Tell us, have you ever used your looks to take advantage of someone? Was it one of our staff? You can tell us. Haha.
CR: No! I would never do that. I can have a bit of an attitude at times, but I'm never a mean girl. I promise! ^_^
TP: Haha. Sure. So what are your hobbies? Any hidden talents you'd like to share with the world?
CR: I love photography. It's actually what I'm currently going to school for.
TP: What is your astrological sign? Do you believe in horoscopes?
CR: I'm an Aries! I believe in horoscopes to a certain extent. I think they can certainly apply to anyone, but for the most part, my horoscopes are often on point.
TP: Do you have any weird habits that no one else knows about?
CR: I like to dance in front of the mirror and pretend like I'm in one of Beyonce's music videos. However, the only people who would know about that are the lucky few who've walked in on me. Hahaha!
TP: Haha. Very interesting. So what is your favorite place to eat? Drink? Play?
CR: I love Luck's BBQ in Sacramento. If you haven't been there yet, you're seriously missing out! I could just be saying this because I'm biased and I work there...but honestly, the food there is heavenly!
TP: Alright. You can treat us after we wrap up this interview. Sound good? So what does a typical day look like for you? Where do you like to go for some time alone?
CR: You got it! Hehe. I would say that a typical day consists of me sleeping in for as long as possible and then rushing to get out of the house in order to make it to school or work on time. I usually slave away for hours on end at school and at work. So when I get home I just want to relax. If I'm alone I like to listen to music or go on drives. I always find riding in a car to be very peaceful.
TP: Nice. Our kinda girl. So can you handle a stick? Have you ever thought about getting into racing?
CR: Of course! I love driving stick and prefer it over an automatic any day. I've actually done a few auto crossing events and have found them to be very rewarding. I definitely want to do more! ^_^
TP: Sweet. We'll have to take you to a track day then. Tell us, does size matter for you? You know we're talking about car engines of course. Haha.
CR: Yes please! That would be awesome. And yes, size does matter. However I don't mind a small engine, as long as its turbocharged! ^_^
TP: Haha. You hear that guys? There's still hope for some of you. Just kidding. So, if we looked through your cell phone, what kinds of juicy things would we find on there?
CR: Not much I'm afraid. I hate texting and my phone takes horrible pictures. Not hot at all. Haha.
TP: Doh! What item of clothing or accessory makes you feel the sexiest?
CR: I love wearing shorts that show off my long legs. ^_^
TP: What do you look for in a guy? What would he have to do to get your attention and to keep you interested?
CR: I look for a guy who can understand my sense of humor. I also want a guy with a great personality, and good looks is always a plus too! If a guy wanted to get my attention, he'd need to make eye contact with me, smell irresistible, and make me laugh - this is not easy FYI! I think if a guy can pull all that off, he's pretty much got me. Hehe.
TP: Got it. We've taken notes. Be ready. Haha. So how do you feel about pick-up lines? What was the best line that was used on you? Did it work?
CR: Hehe. I'm ready! ^_^ As for pick up lines, I'm actually a huge sucker for them! I love them and think they're adorable. Guys who use them are usually cheesy and cute, just my type!
TP: Haha. Wow. You're the first to ever say that. So tell us, what gets you in the mood? What are some of your turn-ons?
CR: An intimate back-rub really turns me on. It's always a big plus for me when a guy shows that he wants me to feel good.
TP: So what do you wear to bed?
CR: My pajamas of course! What do YOU wear to bed?! ^_^
TP: Nothing. Hahaha. Just kidding. So what's your favorite position in the bedroom?
CR: Oh! Haha. I guess it really depends on how I'm feeling. If I want to be in control...well you know. ^_^
TP: Got it. Tell us, what is something no one else knows about you that you are willing to let us in on first?
CR: Okay just remember, you asked! I want to be a rapper...but I'm not sure that it'll work out. Wait, why are you laughing?!
TP: Haha. No reason at all. So were you popular in high school? If so, why do you think that was?
CR: I was fairly popular...with all the minorities! Haha. To be honest, I wanted to genuinely get to know a few people well, rather than simply be acquainted with many. High school kind of sucked, I'm glad that I'm in college now, it's awesome. Kids, go to college! Haha. ^_^
TP: Wow. Advocating education. You truly are a unique model. So tell us, if you could have one superpower, what would it be and why?
CR: I want to be able to fly...wait, is that a power? Haha. Just tink of how much time and gas money I would save! No cops up in the sky either. Hehe.
TP: Wow. Haha. That leads us to our next question...do your friends have any funny nicknames for you? If so, tell us about them and the stories behind them.
CR: "Candaddy" is my most popular nickname. I got it during my first year of college from my friends because I had that "I wear the pants" attitude and swagger. Haha!
TP: Do you use Twitter? Facebook? What do you think about social networking sites and how they have affected models these days?
CR: Yes, yes, and yes! I think social networking has been a great tool for those interested in getting themselves out there. It's great for building brand awareness too!
TP: Right on. So what are five things you never leave the house without?
CR: I never leave the house without brushing my teeth first. I always have my car keys, wallet, phone, and iPod with me. I'm often too lazy to even put on any make-up, do my hair, or find a cute outfit to wear. Wait I just realized that I said wallet, how manly of me. Eww! Haha!
TP: Do you like to travel? Where have you been that you absolutely loved? Where would you like to go someday?
CR: I always love visiting new places, and I never get homesick! This may sound lame, but I really liked New Mexico. It was so different compared to California. I enjoyed seeing how people lived there. Someday I hope to visit Spain!
TP: Sounds good, let's go. By the way, where can your fans find you online?
TP: Where can your fans expect to find you with TunerPlayground next?
CR: Everywhere! Let's start now. Hehe. ^_^
TP: Sounds good. It's time that we wrap up. Any last words?
CR: Be sure to visit StayClutch.com, I'm running the website with my boy Jimmy Chu. Show us some love ok? Thanks for reading this and thanks for featuring me TunerPlayground! <3
