What a Beautiful Girl Wants: Natalie Tenerelli

“A really good hug is a major turn on.”

Yes, she may be a pretty face (all right, a gorgeous face), but Natalie Tenerelli is also tough-as-nails.

You may remember her as a finalist on the 22nd season of Survivor. After proving her meddle in the jungles of Nicaragua, she danced professionally for the Los Angeles Clippers for three years, before settling into modeling.

“I love to challenge myself,” she told us. “I hope modeling gives me more opportunities to shine. As for longterm, I’d love to have my own swimwear line.”

She certainly knows how to model it. Here, Natalie sounds off on what catches her eye, what to do on the first date and what to never do in the bedroom.


How can a man catch your attention?
Acts of kindness. When I see someone give to the homeless or help someone on the street, yep, I’m intrigued!

What’s the worst pick-up line you’ve ever heard?
I was at the airport, and Smokey Robinson walked by me and said, “All I gotta say is ‘ooohhhh.'” I can’t say it was the worst, but it was definitely memorable.


How do you let a man know you’re interested?
I make time for him. Life gets really busy and chaotic, but when I am interested it’s not hard to devote time.

What’s your ideal date?
It starts with opening the car door. That’s a must! Honestly, we could do whatever as long as it’s a good time.


What about a man turns you on the most?
A really good hug is a major turn on. I feel like I can tell a lot about a man by his hug skills.

When do you feel sexiest?
Laying on the beach in my swimsuit with a piña colada.


Which part of your body do you like to show off most on Instagram?
I like to keep it mostly classy on Instagram, but every once in a while I sneak a booty shot in there. I mean, why not!?

What is your favorite thing for a man to do in the bedroom?


What should a man never do in the bedroom?
Ignore my desires. Leave your ego at the door!

Any sexy fantasies?
I don’t kiss and tell.


Lastly, what’s your guiltiest pleasure?
Pickles! I love pickles. I even drink the pickle juice straight from the jar. Don’t hate!
