This month we’re featuring an interview with spokesmodel Tiffany Selby! She’s the girl next door you wish you had! She has worked with some of the best model photographers and has been featured in countless promotions and pictorials, not to mention being a Playboy playmate (July 2007). She’s also a Benchwarmer trading card and is a member of the National Bikini Team (just like fellow Diva Whitney Harchanko).
Citynet Magazine: Where are you from/live now?
Tiffany Selby: I am from Jacksonville, FL but I live in Los Angeles, CA now.
What was young Tiffany Selby like?
I was pretty active. I was never a sports kinda girl but I was a cheerleader when I was young and I took dance (jazz, tap, and ballet).
What’s the origin of your family name?
I am French and German.
How did you get into modeling?
My mom enrolled me in modeling school when I was 15 but I never really had a passion for it until I was 18. I started competing in Hawaiian Tropic competitions and networked and slowly got into the business.
Describe the Hawaiian tropic experience.
One of my friends competed and I did it with her just for fun. It’s funny to look at those pics because I had no idea what I was doing. I had on the ugliest bathing suit and shoes. LOL! Then I just got some experience and did them all the time and I finally made it to Hawaii for the US Finals and I got 5th place.
What has been the best experience modeling?
The best experience has been the print jobs. I love the fact that I get to travel and shoot at gorgeous locations and meet really great people.
What has been the worst experience?
The worst experience is having to work with a snobby, bitchy girl and I had to room with her for 3 days!!!! I hate stuck up girls. It makes them ugly.
How does it feel to be a Benchwarmer card?
I absolutely love Benchwarmer!! Brian is an awesome guy (the owner) and they have the best hair and makeup stylists. My cards always look great. 🙂
What do you do in your downtime.
Whenever I actually have downtime I like to just relax and go shopping or go watch rock shows.
Describe your wildest experiences.
Hmmm those are pretty much a blur to me. LOL! But I would have to say my wildest experience would be posing nude with 12 other girls for Playboy for the World Cup Pictorial that I did.
Are you a big partier?
I used to be but now I am just really focused on my career and I have been so busy so I don’t really have the time to party, not to mention I hate the “Hollywood” scene.
Do women get catty around you?
Well, since I have moved to LA I have noticed a little bit but not really. The only time that it was bad was at the US Finals for Hawaiian tropic because it was a competition. I don’t really pay attention to it. It just makes the other girl look insecure.
What 3 words best describe you?
Outgoing, spontaneous, motivated.
What do you think is your sexiest body part?
Probably my stomach because I have had a lot of compliments on it.
Name anyone you would love to hang out with.
Jim Carrey. I love a good laugh and I think that he is hilarious. I love all of his movies.
Favorite upcoming projects?
I am a spokesmodel for the Budweiser Bike campaign so I will be at all of the bike events and everything else is top secret. Hehe!
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
In 5 years I hope to still be modeling and living in California. I am also working on starting a sandal company with my boyfriend so hopefully that will have taken off. I might also go back to school.
