Monica’s got some moves
Monica van der Bank is an Afrikaans girl who likes to sokkie… we’d like to shake things up with her!
1. When and how did you get into modeling?
When I was in grade 10 I took part in Miss Tygerberg and was crowned second princess. I got a modelling contract but decided I wanted to go to Infinity Models instead.
2.What agency are you currently with?
I’m with Infinity Models in Cape Town and Ice models in Durban
3.Best job you’ve ever done?
I did a job for a Russian company… absolutely loved doing the ad for them. I believe it’s not about the best job, but it’s about which job you enjoyed the most.
4.What are the biggest misperceptions that people have of models?
People tend to think we are stupid and that we hardly eat anything.
5.Worst pick up line ever?
Excuse me; do you have your phone number? I seem to have lost mine.
6.What do you look for in a guy?
He must have ambition and be caring, loving, faithful, adventurous… someone who loves God.
7.What, in a guy, puts you off?
A guy who is rude, a fighter, drinker, smoker or is self centered.
8.How do you handle all the attention you get from guys?
Accept the compliments and then ignore them when they start getting over eager.
9.What do you do to stay in shape?
I’m an athlete so I train at the track every day and I go to the gym three mornings in the week.
10.Describe your perfect night out?
Having dinner and wine with my friends and I’m Afrikaans so I absolutely love to sokkie.
11.Worst date you’ve ever been on?
I’ve been on a blind date as a favour for a friend – just to get to know the guy before being his date for a dance…. It was the longest two hours of my life.
12.Choose: Dinner and a movie/Drinks and clubbing/Staying at home…
Dinner and a movie, but with my friends I’m the wine and sokkie type.
Inception, What Happens in Vegas and The Notebook.
The Shack and I also love Tess Gerritsen books .
Lamborghini Aventador and Range Rover Evoque
17.Have your read 50 shades of grey?
No and I’m not interested in reading it.
18.Ever been part of the mile high club?
19.Lights on or off?
