When we visit New York, we fill our stomachs with halal cart and Shake Shack, party like rock stars at clubs like Tao and Marquee, and meet some of the sexiest girls The Big Apple has to offer—like Christine Elle! We've heard about Christine over the last couple of years from seeing her model at local shows. During the week of the New York International Auto Show, we finally got a chance to meet the Jersey-raised girl; plus, she had a couple hours to spare in between modeling at the show and her day-to-day job as a critical care nurse, so we set up a photo shoot at the famous Standard High Line hotel. From her down-to-earth personality, hard work ethic, and undeniable sex appeal, we know you'll enjoy her as this month's spotlight!
What's your ethnicity?
I'm American with mostly Filipino roots and Chinese 'n' Spanish blood.
How'd you get into modeling?
I've always been fascinated with cars. I once helped a friend out by modeling for his booth at a local car show to get a free pass to the event. I ended up falling in love with the whole scene! And because I'm only 5'3" with tiny feet, I've found success in live/promotional, commercial print, and shoe modeling.
What car do you drive?
I drive a '95 Mazda Miata, which completely fits my personality.
Have a nickname?
"Christine the Machine" because I'm always on the go and looking for a new challenge. No time for weakness!
Favorite part of your body?
My tummy, but we have a love-hate relationship. Because I love to eat and my belly is the first place I show weight, I have to work extra hard to keep it toned!
If you were stranded on an island, what are three things you couldn't live without?
Good company, good food, and alcohol!
