Hey, Casey, congrats on your MAXIM cover. How does it feel?
I’m so excited! I never would have thought I’d see my face on the front cover of such a prestigious magazine.
Tell us about the shoot.
It took place on the Gold Coast after I won the 2015 MAXIM Australian Swimwear Model of the Year (aka ASMY) competition and I’ve never felt so important having so many professionals fussing over me making sure everything was in place and perfect. It’s something I’ve never experienced but could definitely get used to!
You pose in some fine swimwear. Have you ever had a bikini wardrobe malfunction?
Yeah, a while ago when I was at Wet’n’Wild in Sydney I went down one of the slides on my back and when I got to the bottom my bikini top had untied itself and looked more like a cape than a bikini.
Supergirl! Who was the last person to see you naked?
Probably my sister Abbey. Coming from a family of all girls we are very comfortable in our own skin.
When do you feel sexy?
I feel sexiest when I’ve trained, eaten well, had a productive day and am squeaky clean after a refreshing shower.
Tell us a bit more about yourself.
From the age of six to 15 I trained in gymnastics and acrobatics. I trained over 20 hours a week while juggling school and what little social life I had and competed in numerous state and national competitions before representing Australia at the World Age Games in Portugal. Once I quit gymnastics I learnt what it was like to be a normal teenager and definitely made up for lost time hanging out with friends, trying new sports and partying.
What went through your mind when you won ASMY title?
I honestly couldn’t believe it, I was genuinely shocked. It was a very tough competition as there were so many beautiful and unique girls. So for me to take it out was extremely exciting and I was overwhelmed.
How has your life changed since your big win?
There have been so many more modelling opportunities, with offers to go to other countries, and I’ve had extra exposure and recognition (for being a model) on my social network profile which has increased with brands wanting to support me. I was also the cover girl for the MAXIM Machines special edition released just before Christmas and I’ve judged some of the 2016 ASMY heats so far. Life has been busy!
