Dannie Riel is the new hotness in the modeling scene. We recently attended a show where the Canadian model was the headline girl. No bullshit, the line just to get a signed photo of her was close to a hundred people long. If you’ve ever met her, you know why; she’s smart, bubbly, funny, fit and fione! Enjoy our Christmas present to you here, plus peep an in-house video we produced of Dannie at youtube.com/superstreet.
1. First off, what’s your ethnicity?
I am a French Chink! I can understand Cantonese which works in my favor since most assume I wouldn’t be able to. I also can speak a little Chinglish.
2. Where do you call home?
Proud to be born and raised in Winnipeg. Second home is Toronto and I currently call Vancouver my hometown!
3. Do you have any interesting hobbies?
I am a homebody —taking care of two Yorkies is also a full-time job! But nowadays, my hobbies would include cooking, cleaning, yoga and traveling with my love.
4. Have any guilty pleasures to confess?
Macarons, bacon, red velvet cupcakes, milk chocolate, brownies, fresh breads and cheese!
5. If you were stranded on an island, what’s one thing you couldn’t live without?
I’d say a pig. You can prepare pork many different ways and will keep me alive and happy.
6. What do you order at the bar?
Nothing. I pop bottles young money to the death of me! (Sorry baller… -Ed)
7. So how much do you know about cars?
I wouldn’t be able to mod a car but I sure know how to drive!
8. What car you drivin’ now and what’s your dream car?
My first car was a red VW Golf. Yes it was standard as everyone should be able maneuver! Now, I drive a red X5. My dream was the Audi R8, but ever since I’ve seen the concept NSX...Sorry R8!
9. What’s the worst job you’ve had?
My dad had a hair and beauty salon in an old mansion and I was in charge of cleaning it every Sunday. It wasn’t gross to me but very difficult if anything. I’m a clean freak and cleaning a place with hair everywhere is impossible! Okay...cleaning the toilets grossed me out at first but Cinderella got used to it, right?!
10. What are your worst turn-offs?
I can deal with bad breath—it happens to the best of us, but nasty breath? Barf! Also, guys who have too much self-confidence. There is an elegant way to carry yourself with confidence, find that balance before we cross paths. You don’t want to get put in your place by me!
