Happy June! Normally we write a superbly witty introduction when our monthly Featured Model debuts, but frankly we're barely hanging on this month with all of our client obligations and back to back traveling. So we've decided to make up for it by simply getting to the point and releasing sixty never-before-seen photos of our newest exclusively-signed & managed model, Leticia Loera. Enjoy!
TP: So we have to ask, how did you get into modeling? Were you discovered?
LL: Back in the day, fashion designer Dee Aguilar hit me up on Myspace and asked me if I wanted to model for one of her fashion shows. And of course I was like "Hell yes!" From then on I started doing more shows, photoshoots, and promotional events. Dee put my on the map and now you guys are making me shine! ^_^
TP: That's great. Speaking of which, how do you feel about signing exclusively with us? What were some of the important factors that led to your decision?
LL: I'm super excited! I absolutely love the import scene, nothing's better than hot chicks and fast cars. But I have to say it all started when I was 17 and saw the movie The Fast & the Furious...haha. I'm not going to lie. But I truly am grateful to be a part of a team that I feel I am compatible with and for TunerPlayground to give me the opportunity to do what I love!
TP: Aww. Thank you. Do you consider yourself beautiful? What do you think is your greatest asset? What makes you unique?
LL: My self confidence has definitely grown throughout the years. I used to be this shy little girl but I have learned you just have to love yourself for who you are and work with you have. I think my greatest asset is that I laugh all the time, like literally all the time, even at myself...haha...I am a pretty chill person and it doesn't take a lot to make me happy. And I would like to thank my parents for making me look unique because even though I'm Mexican, people usually struggle to guess. ^_^
TP: What was the first major event that you modeled at? What made it most memorable to you?
LL: My first major event that I modeled was for "Solo Boxeo" by Tecate, televised by Telefutura. I was a Ring Girl and they had us wear the cutest outfits. I just remember the rush and excitement before going into the ring and strutting my stuff.
TP: Neat. So who is your favorite model or celebrity of all time?
LL: I love Eva Longoria! She is so beautiful from head to toe and I have been in love with her ever since the first season of Desperate Housewives. So my fantasy photoshoot would be on the set of Desperate Housewives in her yellow house inside the huge tub she has in her bathroom. Getting a little wet never hurt anyone right...? ^_^
TP: Goodness. We need to make that happen. Haha. Tell us, have you ever used your looks to take advantage of someone? Was it one of our staff? You can tell us. Haha.
LL: Never! Haha. I wouldn't want someone to actually turn things around and be taking advantage of me instead...or would I? ^_^
TP: What are your hobbies? Any hidden talents you'd like to share with the world?
LL: I love getting dolled up and doing photoshoots. Hanging out with my family and friends, shopping, playing COD Black Ops (I kick ass!), watching movies, sketching fashion designs, working out and making YouTube videos.
TP: What is your astrological sign? Do you believe in horoscopes?
LL: I am an Aquarius! I even got my sign tattooed on my left wrist. It's true what they say about us though, we are spontaneous, sarcastic, original and just a little rebellious! ^_^
TP: Do you have any weird habits that no one else knows about?
LL: Haha...ok this is going to sound totally weird! But I have the habit of checking out guys eyebrows...haha...I don't know why. If they are too bushy then I get turned off, and if they are too thin then the guy might be gay so I'm not going to holla...haha. ^_^
TP: INTERESTING. So what does a typical day look like for you? Where do you like to go for some time alone?
LL: Let's see...if I'm not working at Hooters or doing promotional events then I'm at school most of the day. And most likely I'll take a nap when I get home before jumping back into homework and some "me" time. The best alone time for me is taking a long bath or being in my comfy bed with my headphones on and listening to my iPod.
TP: That's nice. So what is your favorite place to eat? Drink? Play?
LL: I'm a sucker for sushi and sake bombs! So my favorite spot is Arigato's Sushi in Sacramento. And I could play anywhere because I'm the life of the party! ^_^
TP: Right on. So can you handle a stickshift?
I think it's hot when a girl drives stick, so that's why I had to learn! ^_^ And do you mean have I ever thought about getting into racing, legally? Where's the fun in that? Hehehe.
TP: Does does size matter for you? You know we're talking about car engines of course. Haha.
LL: YES! Because big engines make cars go fast right? Hehe.
TP: If we looked through your cell phone, what kinds of juicy things would we find on there?
LL: I'd say that you would be one lucky fella...haha. But you have to try and unlock it first!
TP: What item of clothing or accessory makes you feel the sexiest?
LL: A bra. Lace panties. And a robe.
TP: Nice. So what has surprised you the most about modeling?
LL: Modeling is tiring! I usually like to get my grub on after a long shoot.
TP: What do you look for in a guy? What would he have to do to get your attention and to keep you interested?
LL: I look for a good sense of humor and for someone who is responsible and family oriented. The guy also has to have his own friends! My family is a tough crowd so if you can get along with them, that's a plus! To keep me interested, just make time for me and keep the sparkle going. ^_^
TP: How do you feel about pick-up lines? What was the best line that was used on you? Did it work?
LL: "Baby girl do you have a license? Because you are driving me crazy!" Haha. Pickup lines are certainly funny, but they don't work on me. Just be your smooth self guys!
TP: What is the weirdest thing that has ever happened to you on a date? How did the rest of the night go?
LL: I stay away from creepos so luckily I haven't had an ackward date yet. Don't jinx me! ^_^
TP: Haha. So what gets you in the mood? What are some of your turn-ons?
LL: Just give me the "it's going down" look, kiss me like crazy and take control... Some turn-ons for me are, smelling like the cologne Gucci by Gucci (yummy!), dressing the part, and treating me like a queen!
TP: Duly noted. Haha. On a scale from 1 to 10, how wild are you in the bedroom?
LL: I'm definitely a dime! And after too much liquor that is probably a conservative rating. Haha!
TP: What do you wear to bed?
LL: Some super hero panties and an extra small t-shirt.
TP: What's your favorite position in the bedroom?
LL: Doggy style. ^_^
TP: Haha nice. 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.
LL: Hmm. I could eat cereal all day every day. I never get sick of it. Haha!
TP: Were you popular in high school? If so, why do you think that was?
LL: I wasn't the most popular girl in high school. I certainly wasn't as loud and outgoing back in the day. But boy, has that changed! ^_^
TP: Right on. Haha. So if you could have one superpower, what would it be and why?
LL: The ability to read minds! That way I'll always know when to say the right thing and can have a little fun while I'm at it.
TP: Do your friends have any funny nicknames for you? If so, tell us about them and the stories behind them.
LL: I got my nickname "Letty Boo" from Danielle, my manager at Hooters. One day she called me that and it stuck. A popular one in Elementary school was "Lettuce" because kids were mean. Haha. ^_^
TP: Aww. Haha. So do you use Twitter? Facebook? Myspace? What do you think about social networking sites and how they have affected models these days?
LL: I use Facebook more than anything else. I'm addicted! I think it's a great way to socialize, network and be linked to people in the industry you're working in. Social networking is the present and the future. I was discovered through it and I'm making my career through it. By networking with the right people, the opportunities are endless.
TP: Amen. So what are five things you never leave the house without?
LL: My phone. Keys. Debit card. Nude lipstick. And my sunglasses.
TP: Do you like to travel? Where have you been that you absolutely loved? Where would you like to go someday?
LL: Traveling is the best! I was just in Mexico last month. I was in Tijuana and Rosarito. It felt like a home away from home with all my peoples. ^_^ I would love to hit up Brazil after watching Fast Five...hehe. Oh and definitely Tokyo Japan someday. By the way, shout out to Japan, stay strong!
TP: Definitely. So tell us, where can your fans find you online?
LL: Find me on Facebook! I'm also working hard on my new website which should launch soon. I'll definitely make an announcement on my FB page first!
TP: Where can your fans expect to find you with TunerPlayground next?
LL: I plan on competing at Redline Time Attack this summer in the Miss Redline Search Contest. So stay tuned!
TP: Sounds great. It's time that we wrap up. Any last words?
LL: Okay! First I would like to thank my family for always being there for me, especially my sister Elli and my brother Johnny, sorry for the wrinkles. Thank you to Tom Tran for believing in me and for helping me through my tough times. To all of my friends who have been there, especially Jessica, Yari, Alex, Erika and Mykies! To Keith Selle for making me look good and for being an amazing friend. And to everyone else at TunerPlayground for making my dreams come true! I love you guys! ^_^ XOXO
