Queen of the Nerds: Maria Ramos

Queen of the Nerds: Maria Ramos

Maria Ramos is also known as Queen of the Nerds! Actually, she’s many a fanboy’s dream girl. She’s sexy, loves comic books, is a sick video game player, and she models! We can see a glow behind her and hear the heavenly angel background music “aaaaaawwww” as the Queen comes close to sci-fi, comic, and video game geeks everywhere! She plays Final Fantasy but she’s probably your biggest fantasy! Enjoy!

Where’s home?
Houston, Texas!

Family background?
My parents are Mexican and my great grandparents are French and German

How did you get into modeling?
I did a photo shoot with a photographer friend and posted the photos on line. Ever since then it kind of blew up. I started getting requests and offers from a lot of photographers.

What is it about modeling that you love?
I love being able to create art and expressing myself through that medium.

Best modeling gig so far?
I got paid to play video games and have my picture taken… now that was awesome!

What makes you Queen of the Nerds?
Well, the fact that I  have hobbies in everything that people would label as “nerdy” or “geeky” like sci-fi, comic books, video games, etc!

What do you think is a better term, “nerd” or “geek”? (Maybe you should be Queen of the Geeks! We think it sounds much better! One of the editors here said to call you the “Geek Queen” instead!)
I actually think nerd is a better term. I think a nerd can still be sexy and into sci-fi and comic books, while geek seems like more of a hardcore version of a nerd like a geek is all about sci-fi and that’s it! To me, a geek sticks to one thing to obsess over you could say! LOL! But yeah, “Geek Queen” does roll off the tongue better!

When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
I wanted to be a ballerina. I thought they were so majestic and lovely until I took a class and was like “yeah no this is way too hard!”maria-ramos-sign-ntn

When did you get into video games?
I got into video games ever since I was a little girl. I have two older siblings and we had a Super Nintendo so we were always fighting over who got it next.

Favorite video games? Best scores… anything to brag about?
Oh goodness! That’s a tough one! There are so many! But seriously, the all time favorite I have to say is Kingdom Hearts! I’m a huge Disney fanatic and I love the games by Square Enix so when I saw that Kingdom Hearts had the best of both worlds I was just ecstatic! And some of the best scores in my opinion are also from the Kingdom Hearts games and Final Fantasy games!

Favorite comic book character?
Owl Man! From the Justice League series is #1. I have a thing for bad guys. Haha!

Favorite female superhero?
Wonder Woman of course!

Best comic book story you’ve ever read?
Superman Vs Predator! That was such a bad ass comic! Everyone should check it out especially if you like Predator!

How big is your comic collection?
Not as big as my video game collection. I’m always borrowing comics from people! LOL!

According to you, what’s your sexiest body part?
My smile! I think smiles are sexy and genuine.

Do comic book geeks go nuts when you’re around?
Actually no! They get freaked out by me! They tend to avoid me sometimes. They blush or they just turn around to avoid eye contact. It happens every time I go to the arcade. Haha! I think it’s cute 🙂

Give us a fun fact about you.
I’m a terrible driver! Is that a fun fact? Maybe that’s more of a scary fact LOL!

Best pick-up line used on you?
I think the best one I got was:
Guy:”Hey! Are you doing alright today?”
Me: ” Umm, yeah I’m fine”
Guy: ” You suuuure are girl mmmmMmM”
I only think that’s the best one because it made me laugh so hard!

How long can you stay away from your cell phone without going crazy?
Very long! I am so awkward on the phone that I actually avoid phone calls … now the Internet that’s a different story!

What’s the most common question that people ask you?
What’s my ethnicity. For some reason, people can’t tell what I am until I tell them my full name Haha! Total giveaway!

Favorite upcoming projects?
I’m going to be a featured model for Evil Pastry Studios at the SXSW festival in Austin,Texas! It’s one of the biggest music and film festivals in the state! and I will be dressed up as Poison from the new game Street Fighter cross Tekken!

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Hopefully doing big things like working on movie projects!
