The Hot 10: Janel Parrish

This Oahu native is one of the prettiest girls on television, and she’s not going anywhere.

Janel Parrish is what you call a “triple threat.” She started her career singing and dancing in musicals, but is better known (to just about every teenage girl in America) as the maniacal and psychotically named Mona Vanderwaal on ABC Family’s Pretty Little Liars. Now, you can catch Janel as she dances her way to a Mirror Ball Trophy on Season 19 of Dancing with the Stars. Maxim spoke with the starlet about what she’s looking for in a partner.

I feel most sexy wearing workout clothes. I definitely enjoy a sexy pair of tights and a tanktop.

My girl crush isLea Michele. Her confidence is so sexy and I would love to have a career like she has. Maybe I could be a crossover artist.

My ideal date would probably be drinks somewhere. If you go get drinks, that way you can have good conversation and be able to decide if you want to hang out after.

A man can get my intimate attentions by being a really good kisser. Simple as that.

My favorite curse word is the “F” word. It can be used in any situation, good or bad.

For a man to be groomed, I think it depends on the guy. A man should always smell nice, and his clothes should never be wrinkled. I don’t mind a beard though, as long as they have the confidence to go with it.

My favorite food is pepperoni pizza, for sure. It’s my go-to comfort food, and it’s just so delicious.

To get my attention, a man should wear jeans and maybe a tight v-neck. For a first date, it’s nice to keep it cool and casual. It takes a little bit of the pressure off.

My most prized possession has to be my family. If I had to pick a material possession though, oh my God, it would be diamonds. I’m obsessed. I have diamond rings on my fingers at all times.

As for what’s next, I’m still shooting Pretty Little Liars and hopefully winning a Mirror Ball Trophy!
