Happy Valentine's Day (and Lunar New Year-for all the Asians out there) from all of us at TunerPlayground! For the month of February we wanted to give our fans a taste of what a beautiful model with a hard edged & sexy attitude looks like. Meet Jey Brandice Lee. She can make your heart melt and your breath stop with just a glance. Smart. Feisty. And equipped with a body that will definitely have you fantasizing about having her as your Valentine come February 14th. But too bad you can't have her. Because she's ours all month long. So you'll just have to settle for reading her brutally honest and very revealing interview as you browse through 60 stunning photos of her wearing...well...not much. TunerPlayground. Yeah yeah, we love you too.
TP: So we have to ask, how did you get into modeling? Were you discovered?
JBL: I got started fresh out of High School. Carlos Quintero from iClique introduced me to the scene. Been at it every since.
TP: Oh right on. Do you consider yourself beautiful? What do you think is your greatest asset? What makes you unique?
JBL: I don't want to sound conceited or anything, but I know I'm not ugly. I would have to say my best asset are my eyes. They mesmerize you! ^_^
TP: What was the first major event that you modeled at? What made it most memorable to you?
JBL: San Jose Hot Import Nights. It was my first time at a car show and first time doing runway. Also the first time I saw Christine Mendoza and Sasha Singleton do their thang in a lace bra and panties. I can't lie...I blushed. ^_^
TP: Who is your favorite model or celebrity of all time? What would your fantasy photoshoot with her consist of?
JBL: I gotta give it to Christine Mendoza because she isn't the skinny plastic model type. She's nice and thick, and she isn't big headed like most of the earlier generation import girls. She's the sweetest girl ever. Our fantasy photoshoot...hmmMmm...it would have to be implied nude in a candy land setting. Strawberry syzzzurp and lollipops. Hehe. ^_^
TP: Have you ever used your looks to take advantage of someone? Was it one of our staff? You can tell us. Haha.
JBL: Pssshhh! Noo...never. ^_^
TP: Really? How did you get this feature then? Hahaha. Just kidding. So what are your hobbies? Any hidden talents you'd like to share with the world?
JBL: I can sing. And I can write my own lyrics.
TP: Oh cool. What is your astrological sign? Do you believe in horoscopes?
JBL: My birthday is July 22nd. It's the end of Cancer and the beginning of Leo. I read the Leo horoscopes. They always fit me.
TP: Do you have any weird habits that no one else knows about?
JBL: As a child I had some crazy OCD! But I'll spare myself the embarrassment of any details.
TP: Haha okay, we'll let that one slide. What does a typical day look like for you? Where do you like to go for some time alone?
JBL: I'm a foodie! I eat out all day long. Seriously, every time you text me and ask what I'm doing I' always say "Eating. You?" Haha.
TP: Favorite food? Drink? Place to eat?
JBL: I love Hong Kong style baked pork chop. Baked pork chop with spaghetti sauce over egg fried rice is soooo damn good! I like Jasmine Milk Tea. Yum. ^_^ Favorite place to eat would have to be Sa Rang Bang in Rosemont-best Korean food I've ever had.
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?
JBL: I drive a newer Honda Accord Coupe. Dream car...Phantom baby! Boss status right there. Shit, I'll make sure I hire a hater of mine to chauffeur me around...so I can be like "Bitch! Get to driven!"
TP: Can you drive a stick?
JBL: Yes! I learned how to drive in an Integra GSR. I can appreciate the racing world. I'd love to learn how to drift! Can you imagine a pretty girl traveling with the Formula D Tour? Now that's one bad ass bitch! Hehe. ^_^ I want to learn soon...who's down to teach me?
TP: Does size matter for you? You know we're talking about engines of course. Haha.
JBL: I know a K20 in a Civic is serious business, so I guess that means size does matter. ^_^ I like it big with lots of power behind it. Hahaha. Engines of course!
TP: If we looked through your cell phone, what kinds of juicy things would we find on there?
JBL: Pictures of food. Haha. You know when you eat something delicious you absolutely need to brag and post about it on Twitter. LOL. You'll find Pandora on at all times. I'm a serious music junkie. Aside from that, not much else, I know how to delete evidence. JK! You'll find a massive amount of texts. Some naughty, some nice. ^_^
TP: Do you have any resolutions for 2010? What are they and why?
JBL: I didn't make any, but if I had to make one right now it would be to hit the gym more often like the rest of the US population. Hahaha. But hey! These love handles do come in handy... ^_^
TP: What item of clothing or accessory makes you feel the sexiest?
JBL: Knee high boots...
TP: What has surprised you the most about modeling? What has your most memorable modeling moment been so far? Most embarrassing?
JBL: I'm surprised the most by all the wannabes in the scene. Seems like anyone thinks they can be a model, and EVERYBODY tries. Just because you shake your shit at a car show in a g-string doesn't mean you're a model. The crowd standing around you is just watching the freak show, don't get it mixed up as positive attention. Haha sorry I keeeeeps it real. Every modeling moment is memorable, every event is fun! I love meeting beautiful girls and seeing nice cars, it doesn't get any better than that.
TP: What do you look for in a guy? What would he have to do to get your attention and to keep you interested?
JBL: I like a guy who handles his business, the work hard but play hard type. ^_^ He needs to be smart and good with his hands. He has to like the import industry like I do. Acrylic wearing, dunk rocking, hip hop loving guy with a cute face. If he's wearing Ecko and Jordans (played out) and he has no ambition and no plans beyond who's driving to the club this weekend then he better keep it moving baby! LOL. Nothing typical, he has to be a unique individual.
TP: How do you feel about pick-up lines? What was the best line that was used on you? Did it work?
JBL: Damn. Whenever I hear one I always try to remind myself to remember it for when the time comes that this question gets asked, but they always slip my mind. Sorry! I guess that means they don't work if I can't even remember them. Haha. ^_^
TP: What is the weirdest thing that has ever happened to you on a date? How did the rest of the night go?
JBL: This one time i was so bored on a date I texted another guy to come pick me up and told the guy I was with that a girlfriend of mine was coming to get me from the restaurant because there was an emergency (it was my attempt to avoid hurting his feelings). Well turns out, the guy absolutely insisted on walking me out and he saw that the "girlfriend" picking me up wasn't a girl at all. LOL. We didn't speak after that. I'm pretty sure he figured out that I wasn't interested.
TP: Haha wow, poor guy. So what gets you in the mood? What are some of your turn-ons?
JBL: I love the perfect cologne! Kisses on the neck get me every time. This might sound really weird but I also like ice cold lips on my body. I'm usually the aggressor but if a guy can take control then that's a real turn on, oooh baby! ^_^
TP: On a scale of 1 to 10, how wild are you in the bedroom?
JBL: Haha. Umm. 20. ^_^ It's the Mexican in me. We get it on!
TP: What do you wear to bed?
JBL: Choniez (underwear) and a t-shirt.
TP: We ask this with every model we feature, so no need to be shy. Favorite position?
JBL: Arms behind my back, face in the pillow...LOL. Just kidding! I like missionary style with a JBL twist to it. ^_^
TP: Hahaha right on. So what is something no one else knows about you that you are willing to let us in on first? And your answer above doesn't count. It has to be something else!
JBL: I prefer not to wear a bra. I hate them! I have hella panties and only a couple of bras. I hate feeling restricted. I like to just be freeeee! ^_^ All my girlfriends think I'm weird, but bras are just so damn uncomfortable and annoying!
TP: Damn. If only more girls shared your point of view. There would be more happy guys in the world. Haha. So were you popular in high school? If so, why do you think that was?
JBL: Umm. Not really. I kept it low key. I didn't kick it with people from my high school. I was too cool! LOL. Just kidding. The other kids just weren't interested in the same things as I was. There were lots of drama queens and wanksters too. I got all of my haters from there, so if they're reading this then "Ayeee F*CK ya'll. Ask your boyfriend if he's worn out that poster of mine yet." Hahaha. Just kidding. Sorta. I'm so mean huh? ^_^
TP: If you could have one superpower, what would it be and why?
JBL: I'd want the ability to read minds. It would come in handy in all sorts of situations. Professional and sexual. Hahaha. ^_^
TP: LOL. So do your friends have any funny nicknames for you? If so, tell us about them and the stories behind them.
JBL: Elissa Alva's been calling me "teeny" since we were little kids. No mystery there, I'm really petite.
TP: Do you use Twitter? Facebook? Myspace? What do you think about social networking sites and how they have affected models these days?
JBL: Funny you ask, I was just thinking about that recently. I think we have it a lot easier nowadays. The social networking sites are like free publicity for us. But on a negative note, we have to deal with a lot of fake profiles and online hating. Websites like Myspace, Facebook, and Twitter can make a model's career, but certainly damage it as well.
TP: What are five things you never leave the house without?
JBL: My blackberry. ID. Debit card. Lip Gloss. And a bottle of water. Haha.
TP: Do you like to travel? Where have you been that you absolutely loved? Where would you like to go someday?
JBL: I REALLY want to travel! I want to go anywhere and everywhere. Someday I want to go to Europe, Latin America, and Asia. Why didn't you guys take me with you to Japan?
TP: Next time! We already made plans remember? Hehe. So where can we expect to find you next? When will you be modeling with TunerPlayground this year?
JBL: Anytime anywhere you guys invite me. It's always a party with the TunerPlayground Crew! ^_^
TP: Where can your fans find you online?
TP: Alright, 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!
JBL: Shout outs to all of my fans, my beautiful sistaaa Elissa Alva, the magnifico Keith Selle who always delivers bad ass photos, 916 Squad (honda_hien), and last but not least, Tom and the rest of the TunerPlayground staff for featuring me for the month of February. I'll be your Valentine all month long! ^_^ JBL <3'z JDM!
