From our brothers across the Atlantic, say hello to Maxim South Africa's latest cover model, Chloe Wilton.
This beguiling Brit really is the total package. She's an accomplished college athlete who has a taste for extreme helicopter skiing, but still stays in touch with her spiritual side through Buddhism and yoga. And of course, she has the sort of head-turning looks you've come to expect from all of our cover models.
Check out her scorching-hot shoot in the gallery above, and read up on what Wilton considers to be an ideal date, her love of Don Julio 1942 tequila, and passion for academia in the Maxim South Africa interview below.
Tell us a bit about yourself Chloe. Where did you grow up?
I was born and raised in Buckinghamshire in a house full of boys, but now I reside in London. My family is of Irish and Mediterranean heritage.
When did you first start modeling?
I have been modeling on and off from a young age. I landed my first job in an equestrian goods catalog at the age of 11. But growing up I was very focused on my studies and only turned my attention back to modeling recently.
What do you do to unwind in your free time?
I love to meditate and do yoga. Also traveling really helps me unwind, I'm based in London - it's great, but it can get hectic, I love to go somewhere new or immerse myself in nature. I'm a big fan of skiing, I started when I was two, helicopter skiing is my favorite. I also find scuba diving brings me a great sense of peace.
Sources say that you excelled in college. Tell us about that.
I have a 2:1 Bachelor of Arts degree in Social Sciences, from the University of Bath. While studying, I captained the University Swim Team in my second year of studies, I also had a place on the prestigious University of Bath netball team. I have always been an avid sportswoman and have competed at national level for a number of years across swimming, netball, athletics, horseback riding and skiing.
I was a bit of a nerd and teachers pet at school - I've always been super passionate about learning. I went to university to study sociology, and I'm planning to start my Master’s degree next year.
Let’s talk men. What do you look for in a man, and what is a major turnoff?
I love spontaneous, driven and fun - it's important they can strike a good balance between fun and serious. I love men who know how to party. Also flowers, and men that know how to kiss, like really well. Otherwise, I'm quite open-minded - I don't have a profile I look for in terms of looks, it's mostly about charisma and a good pair of shoes. Bad shoes are a big turn off, sloppy un-passionate kissing, and obnoxious personalities. I don't mind a little bit of grooming, but over the top I don't like.
What is your ideal date?
My ideal date would probably include a nice sushi dinner, a bottle of 1942 tequila and getting wild at a house party together, or a cuddle on the sofa with takeout - it's all about the company, if I'm with a good guy, I'm happy anywhere.
What is the one quote that you live by?
Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared. (I’m really interested in Buddhism).
I am sure that modeling has its ups and downs. Has anything cringe worthy happened to you?
Luckily I haven't had anything too major happen to me in terms of embarrassment. Maybe you could include a couple of wardrobe malfunctions and nipple slips streamed to nearly a million viewers - but that really didn't bother me. I'm comfortable with my body, I like being naked and we'll all humans here!
What are your plans for the upcoming year?
My goals for 2017 is to enjoy life to the fullest, travel as best I can, meet new people, and be the best version of myself - master a few more advanced yoga moves and smile every day.
