Trista Mikail moved from her hometown of Boise, Idaho to Los Angeles at 19 with the hopes of jumpstarting a modeling career. One of her first big breaks was posing for Maxim France—something that the blonde beauty considers to be one of her biggest achievements thus far. Mikail has since landed shoots for lingerie boutique Honey Biridette and Playboy Portugal, along with a brand ambassadorship for the influencer-driven energy drink company Bang Energy. Read on for her biggest turn-on, dream date and celebrity crush:
How can someone catch your attention?
Someone can catch me attention by being well-dressed, but also by having a dark side.
What’s the worst pick-up line you’ve ever heard?
"Are you a time traveler? Because I see you in my future."
How do you let someone know you’re interested?
I will text back as soon as possible. If I’m not interested, it’ll take forever for me to get back to them, or I just won’t reply at all. I’m usually pretty straight forward.
Tell us about your dream date.
My dream date would be a trip to Bora Bora. I’ve always wanted to go there, I think it'd be very romantic.
What turns you on the most?
My biggest turn-on is when someone kisses my neck and then bites the back of it.
When do you feel sexiest?
When I’m shooting. I go into my own zone, I feel free and confident.
Who’s your biggest celebrity crush?
My celebrity crush is the Joker from Suicide Squad. I don’t think he’s very attractive without the makeup, but with it I think he’s the sexiest guy ever. Yes, I am a weirdo.
What’s on your favorite music playlist?
It depends on what kind of mood I’m in. If I’m about to go out, I like to listen to Mariah Carey. If I’m just staying in by myself, I’ll listen to Lana Del Rey.
Do you have a favorite athlete or sports team?
I grew up watching the Seattle Seahawks with my father, so they’ve always been my favorite football team.
What fashion brands do you like to rock?
My favorite brands to rock are Guess, Fashion Nova, PrettyLittleThing, Tiger Mist and, of course, plenty of designer brands.
What’s your absolute favorite food or meal?
Pasta is life.
Favorite travel destination?
My favorite place that I’ve been to is Lake Como in Italy.
What’s your guiltiest pleasure?
My guiltiest pleasure would definitely be chocolate. I’d marry Willy Wonka just for the chocolate river.
