Jayme Knightly is a model and a student. She has been in PB as a Coed Of The Week and wants to be a playmate. I was blown away by her natural beauty and the way she carries herself. I like what she does and can’t wait to see what else she does next. So read on and find out why I had interview her for the site.
1. Why did you become an model?
I started, and continue, to model as a hobby. I enjoy the creativity
of styling, setting up a scene, and taking on a new persona.
2. What has been the highlight of being a model so far?
The highlight has definitely been working with Playboy and appearing
in their publications.
3. How did you get involved with Playboy?
My first Playboy audition was for the 2007 Girls of the SEC edition.
The audition was on my 20th birthday, which also happens to be Hef’s
birthday too, so I hoped fate would step in. Just doing test shots was
wicked fun and getting a phone call a day later that I’d been chosen to
shoot was a total thrill.
4. How did it feel to be a coed of the week?
Being a coed of the week for the Playboy Cyber Club was unreal. It
never occurred to me I might be chosen, but I was really excited and
flattered. The amount of positive feedback I got from friends, family and
strangers online was tremendous.
5. How would it feel if you were chosen as a playmate and why should
you be one ?
If I were chosen as a Playmate, I’m sure I’d react as I have for every other Playboy appearance – jumping up and down and calling my mom yelling about it. As far as why I think I should be one, I have already appeared in three Playboy magazines and was coed of the week, so I’d say I look ok. But beyond being pretty in pictures, a Playmate is a representative of the Playboy company which is an aspect I’ve taken seriously all along the way. I believe Playboy is a great institution and I continue to audition and speak highly of my experiences because of that. I’d be a great Playmate because I can take good pictures AND I truly love the company I’d be representing.
6. Who would you most like to work with in Modeling?
That’s an excellent question…I would really like to shoot with Pam Anderson. She is gorgeous and has experience I’d love to learn from.
7. If you could be on the cover of any magazine would it be?
Playboy or Elle. If I were on the cover of Playboy, that’s pretty ultimate given how much the company has contributed to my modeling experience. Elle would be a totally different avenue which I’d love the chance to explore.
8. What do you to keep yourself fit?
If I have a free time I love to play tennis, snowboard and go to the driving range, but my typical week includes trips to the gym to do cardio and lift, maybe take a yoga class, and I walk my dog every day.
9. What is on your stereo at the moment?
In the car I mainly listen to Rock 93.5, they play Shinedown, Papa Roach, Mumford and Sons- good stuff. At the gym I usually listen to Nicki Minaj on Pandora, it has a great mix to keep you going through a workout.
10. What are some of your favorite musical artists/bands?
My musical taste is a complete mix of country, rock, hip hop, a little pop, and whatever else. Huge Papa Roach fan, they do amazing shows. Shinedown and Theory of a Deadman do great stuff. I like Nickelback (judge me if you must), they do great shows too. Keith Urban, Kenny Chesney and Miranda Lambert are some of my favorite country artists. And I’d say Nicki Minaj, Ludacris and Jay-Z are my top hip hop/rap choices.
11. What movies you have seen lately you have really enjoyed?
The last movie I saw in the theatre was Bad Teacher and it was quite good. I am a big fan of Cameron Diaz, she did a great job.
12. What are your favorite movies?
Classic Disney cartoons like Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty.
13. What is next for you?
I’ll probably head back to school next fall to get my nursing degree. In the meantime I hope to develop my own fitness company. I really want to positively impact people’s health and wellness.
14. Who would you most like to work with?
I guess that would depend on what type of project we are working on…
15. If you could be in any video clip who’s would it be?
Lady Gaga, I can only imagine the set and costumes she would choose!
16. Would you ever like to get into acting or hosting work?
Yeah, that would be a fun new adventure to try.
17. What kind of shoot wouldn’t you do?
I wouldn’t do anything I thought was tasteless. My mom sees all of my photos, she is always really supportive, so if I don’t think they would impress her I’m not going to waste anyone’s time.
