What a Beautiful Woman Wants: CJ Franco

“I’ve never heard a pick up line I didn’t like.”

Model, fashion designer and stand-up comedian CJ Franco is seriously gorgeous, but that doesn’t mean she takes life too seriously. Take the interview below, for instance. The Santa Cruz, California-bred stunner jokes that someone can catch her attention by “tripping me,” describes the setting for her dream date as a “Taco Bell drive-through,” and says she’s been jamming to a “wind chime playlist.”

Perhaps it’s Franco’s killer combo of irreverent wit, undeniable beauty and entrepreneurial spirit (she founded woman’s athletic wear company Neon Beige in 2015) that’s helped her continue to crush life on three fronts since we last checked in with her. Read on to learn about Franco’s A-list actor crush, favorite football star and more:
