We recently caught up with the 2014 Miss Hooters International Ashley Dill from Chattanooga, Tennessee for this exclusive interview.
Q: Describe your bikini for the shoot and why you like that particular style, cut, etc. Be as specific as possible with the brand name and even the suit name if you know it.
My bikini from the shoot was a Waterbabies bikini. I love all of their styles so I mainly buy Waterbabies. The style was Scrunch butt blue with pearls and sequins, and a brown sequin scrunch butt.
Q: Most memorable moment on the shoot (Tell me about the day)?
My most memorable moment was getting to play in the fountains and playing around with everyone. I love anything that I can have fun with.
Q: When did you start modeling and how were you discovered?
I just recently got into modeling about a year ago. The Hooters swimsuit pageant in Vegas was my first time actually getting to shoot and ever since then it has been something that I realized I love doing and want to pursue.
Q: What was your first big break in the industry?
I don’t know if you could call it a big break but Hooters International Swimsuit Pageant was definitely the starting point to all of this and I am so grateful for that experience because it has truly changed my life.
Q: Not including shooting with us, what has been your favorite job so far?
My favorite part has been getting to travel and be a part of Hooters Calendar Tour. I never imagined I would be at this point. It is a very humbling experience.
Q: What is your favorite swimwear company or companies and why do you like their swimsuits?
My favorite is Waterbabies bikinis. I love all of her styles so I mainly buy Waterbabies.
Q: Tell us something interesting about yourself that most people do not know (the quirkier, the better!)?
I feel like there isn’t a lot that people don’t know about me. I am pretty much an open book but if I had to choose I would say that I am not as girly as most people think. On camera I have my hair and nails done and I am on my best behavior but my everyday life is filled with watching sports and hunting and fishing. I was a big tom boy before all of this started up!
Q: If you could be doing any job in the world for the rest of your life, what would it be and why?
My dream job is being a sports broadcaster! I am currently in school working on it. My two favorite sports to watch is baseball and basketball. I am a diehard Atlanta Braves fan and I can’t get enough of the Golden State Warriors—yes, I have an East Coast and a West Coast team!
Q: What is your favorite movie of all time and why?
My favorite movie of all time is “Gone with the Wind!” I think that the way Rhett Butler and Scarlett O’Hara are together is the sweetest thing in the world. I love everything about that movie.
Q: What Super Powers would you like to have and how would you use it?
My super power would be to have rhythm. Like I want to fight crime and instead of beating people up, I will just challenge them to dance offs. I want to be the Chuck Norris of dancing!
Q: What are the Top 3 songs playing on your iPod right now?
I listen to a variety!
1.) Ed Sheeren, “Thinking Outloud”
2.) Eminem, “25 to Life”
3.) Eric church, “Sinners Like Me”
Q: What is your work out routine if any?
My workout routine involves a lot of walking at an incline and just trying to stay active throughout the day. I have started doing a lot of yoga as well.
Q: Favorite food and how often do you eat it?
My favorite food is anything southern fried! My favorite place to eat is Cracker Barrel and everything on their menu is my favorite food.
Q: What is your drink of choice?
My drink if choice is coffee. I tend to use a lot of energy throughout the day!
Q: What does Fashion mean to you?
Fashion to me is my favorite flannel and leggings. My closet is a colorful variety of flannel, I would make a hell of a lumber jack.
Q: What models do you look to for inspiration and/or admire and why?
I love Cameron Diaz. I love her personality and outlook on life and I can relate a lot to it. I think it is all in your attitude in front of the camera rather than your face.
Q: Favorite designer and why?
I don’t have a favorite designer. I’m more of a bargain hunter for sure.
Q: What celebrity do you resemble or get mistaken for the most?
I hear a lot of Olivia Wilde, if only I was as gorgeous as her!
Q: Where can we see you next? Do you have any upcoming events, photo shoots or appearances that your fans can see you at soon?
I just recently landed a spot as the host of a high school sports show in Chattanooga, called “High School Sports Zone,” so I am extremely excited.
Q: You have new customers to Hooters, in Chattanooga, Tennessee, what on the menu do you recommend to eat, drink and where they should go party after to meet some lovely ladies?
I would definitely recommend the Daytona shrimp and a cold beer because nothing beats it after a long day! As far as places in Chattanooga to go to, Raw Sushi Bar and Nightclub has always been a Chattanooga favorite.
