Memphis native Christen Dye has come a long way since competed in Maxim.com's Hometown Hotties competition. The Select Model Management-signed beauty now splits her time between Tennessee and Los Angeles, influencing for brands like Ignite (Dan Bilzerian's cannabis and CBD venture), Fashion Nova and Revolve, as well as shooting tour content for country star Dierks Bentley. Read on for Dye's biggest turn-on, favorite NBA team, and the absolutely awful pick-up line someone actually tried on her.
How can someone catch your attention?
Be tall...ha, I'm kidding. I love when someone is outgoing and funny. If you have a great sense of humor and instantly make me laugh, I am all in. Communication is key for me. I want someone I can vibe with and talk to. I hate forced conversations or no conversation at all.
What’s the worst pick-up line you’ve ever heard?
Well, to be honest, my DMs are pretty scary! One of the worst was this guy who said "I am on death row, and I wanted to know if I could eat your ass for my last meal."
Yikes! How do you let someone know you’re interested?
I start giving them my time. I'll make time for texts, calls and dates when I actually am interested in someone. I am always traveling, on the go, and busy. So if I’m making time to include you in my life, I’m interested!
Tell us about your dream date.
Traveling anywhere! I love to go places. Take me somewhere I've never been and just experience it with me. I love firsts, and I love getting to share moments like that with a special someone.
What turns you on the most?
I love when a guy shows me off! There is nothing sexier than when a guy is proud to have me by his side. Hold my hand, grab my hips, and don't be scared to show that I’m there with you.
When do you feel sexiest?
I feel sexiest when I'm shooting. I don't know what it is about being in front of the camera, but I feel super empowered and sexy.
Who’s your biggest celebrity crush?
Chris Hemsworth. I've watched Thor: Ragnarok probably a hundred times...and not just because I love the movie.
What's on your fave music playlist?
If we're going off my "Most Played" playlist its Drake, Post Malone, NLE Choppa, Fabolous, Roddy Ricch, The Weeknd, DaBaby, etc. I love hip-hop. I'm also super obsessed with Khalid. He's my go-to.
Do you have a favorite athlete or sports team?
Yes! I love basketball. I’m a big Boston Celtics fan.
What fashion brands do you like to rock?
Basically, every brand Revolve Clothing carries, like Majorelle, Tularosa, NBD and Camila Coelho. I'm also super casual and love sweats so basically any brand that has cute loungewear. Of course, I also love Chanel, YSL and Louis Vuitton.
What's your absolute favorite food or meal?
All food! I am such a foodie. I will eat anything. If you want the key to making me instantly happy, just bring me a chocolate milkshake.
Favorite travel destination?
Anywhere with a beach. Bora Bora is pretty amazing, loved going there. I will take anything that has sunshine, water and sand, though.
What’s your guiltiest pleasure?
Binge-watching shows on Netflix. I travel so much for work that when I'm home I love just chilling and watching episode after episode of whatever show I'm on at the moment.
