Who gets the news before the rest of the world?
Definitely my mom. She was thrilled when I told her I was a finalist, and she's always very supportive of me. Then my dad and then my older brother. He was more hesitant about my entering the competition than anyone else.

Understandably, because now he's going to have to deal with all these guys trying to snag a date with you.
It's funny. He was in a staff meeting, and his colleagues were discussing what they can't talk about in the workplace. One of his coworkers stood up and said, "You can't talk about his sister!" 
He gets stuff about it all the time, but I know he's happy for me.

What made you decide to enter the competition?
Being in Maxim has always been one of my main goals in terms of modeling. As soon as I turned 21, that's what I wanted to do, so I am extremely proud and excited to get to represent the magazine.

You don't think all the accolades will go to your head? You can yell and scream at us. It's cool.
No. I don't ever look at myself in that way. I see myself as Dessie who lives in Apollo, Pennsylvania. When I'm at home or work, I don't really wear a lot of makeup, and I like to have fun and be comfortable and not always worry about my appearance. But I can look good when I want to!

Was there any moment in the competition when you thought, Wow, I can't believe this is happening? 
The week in Vegas with all the other finalists was the experience of a lifetime. The shoots were awesome, but my favorite part was meeting all the other girls, because we got along so well.

Thank you for being so respectful and encouraging! You guys kept me going.

We hear you're single. Would you ever date a Maxim guy?
Definitely! With me it's pretty much what you see is what you get, so long as a guy can be himself and be honest with himself, he has a good chance with me.
