Tara Babcock

Where were you born, and how was life growing up?
Tara Babcock I was born in Seattle, Washington where I currently still reside. My like growing up was pretty average as far as home life, but I was a bit of a popular tomboy until my mom enrolled me into a modeling school when I was 12. I retained the tomboy-ish interests like video games and hanging out with the boys, but I had also found my passion for beauty and perfecting my appearance. I attended high school at the same time as getting college credits at the community college and at the end of my senior year, I bought my DD's and started modeling!.

What ethnicity are you?
Tara Babcock My ethnicity is comprised of Irish, Welsh and Native American respectively. My descendants were on the Mayflower!.

What would the average person say about you?
Tara Babcock I'm not sure. Everyone has their own opinion about me and as I've seen, it's all over the board! What's yours?

What kind of stuff did you get into after high school?
Tara Babcock I only graduated around 3 years ago and I've been a full time model ever since!

How did you get into modeling?
Tara Babcock I just decided to go for it and it was a success! I am extremely blessed that I have made it this far in such a short time, even living in Seattle and hating to travel! It's a dream!

How long have you been modeling?
Tara Babcock I have been modeling for about 3 years coming up soon! Ever since around the time I graduated high school!

How did you feel being in front of the camera for the first time?
Tara Babcock Fine. It was freezing, though and the photographer wasn't the best. Haha, but it was fun and I was a natural. I've never been shy or reserved and I am a quick learner.

How did you feel walking into your photoshoot?
Tara Babcock Excited!

So would you say you are comfortable now?
Tara Babcock Always have been!

Would you say you are pretty comfortable with your body?
Tara Babcock Yeah, I am! But I am a perfectionist and a huge critic of myself and my work. I work toward perfection in everything that I do. So, when I feel fat am I insecure? No, but am I mad at myself and in the gym the next day? Heck yes!

What would you say is your best feature?
Tara Babcock I have a bunch of cool features, but I love my boobies!.

What's the best thing about being a model?
Tara Babcock The best thing about being a model is that I am doing what I love and when I get to see the proof images from shoots with my favorite photographers, or my face in a magazine at the store... wow! It's amazing!

What do you do differently to set yourself apart from other models?
Tara Babcock Well, I don't drink, party or do things that may hinder my goals, profession or my body. I am an extreme perfectionist and I strive for it in every photo shoot and in myself. If I see a flaw, I work to fix it one way or another, so you can be sure that I am one of the most attractive and well put together models out there!

Aside from appearance and drive I am also intelligent. I am a writer at heart and I only have to see things done once to duplicate them. Alongside modeling I am a photo retoucher, make-up guru, I make clothing from scratch and design my own patterns, I write advice journals on my site as well as articles for impulsegamer.com, I'm great at video games and I'm amazing in the sack! Haha!

Finally, I actually really, really enjoy talking with and meeting my fans! I would never talk down to them in their face OR behind their backs like I have seen many models do in the past. They've gotten me where I am today! I love them!

Where do you hope your modeling will take you?
Tara Babcock I have a few specific goals, but right now I am just improving myself, my site and working on a few new business ventures. I just hope to maximize everything!

Any highlights in your modeling career?
Tara Babcock Some highlights are being on G4TV's Attack of the Show and IGN (because I just LOVE gaming and it's a huge honor) and also being in magazines such as: Ultimate MMA, American Curves, COED Magazine and many more. I have also been featured in a few phone apps and I have my own merchandise line! My biggest accomplishment is my website, tarababcock.com, though. I work super hard and update it all by myself. All of the text, images and HTML... that's all me!

Where can we find you on a typical weekend, if you aren't doing a photoshoot?
Tara Babcock At home playing video games, watching movies, hanging out with friends or at the mall shopping! I love to get non-dairy frozen yogurt!

What keeps you busy away from modeling?
Tara Babcock I am always in the gym! Working hard to get a great body and keep healthy is a must!

Tara Babcock

What do you want to do outside of modeling?
Tara Babcock I want to open my own gym!

Five years from now, where do you see yourself?
Tara Babcock Even more successful! Heh!

What is the coolest thing a fan has ever done for you?
Tara Babcock Well, I have had fans send me lots of money, I have had them send me gifts on my birthday or tell me the SWEETEST things you couldn't even imagine, but my all time favorite thing is when a fan started being a vegan for me... that is the ultimate gift! And of course, he loves it!

Any photographers you enjoy working with or hope to work with?
Tara Babcock Tons, but I don't do the whole favoritism thing... at least not publicly!

Which internet websites would you say you spend most of your time at?
Tara Babcock www.tarababcock.com for sure! After that, www.abercrombie.com and www.facebook.com!

Do you travel much for your modeling?
Tara Babcock Yeah, sometimes only once every couple months, sometimes a few times a month, but I try to keep it to a minimum.

Do you like all the traveling?
Tara Babcock No, not until I get there. It is just a huge hassle and I can't eat, work out or do the things I usually do when I am away. I miss my car, my super large make-up vanity and everything else. I also hate planes and the airports!

If you could travel anywhere, where would it be?
Tara Babcock I would go to Vegas right now. I just miss it. I only get to go once or twice a year and that place always amazes me.

If you could play lead role in any type of movie, What kind of movie would it be?
Tara Babcock I wanna be murdered... brutally. But I would also like to do a drama... not that that would be realistic with my look.

Do you have a favorite Car?
Tara Babcock My car! I love all cars, though! Sports cars, lifted trucks, classics! I have a mini scale model of a 57' Chevy in red and white on my entertainment center.

Do you have a favorite drink when at clubs or bars?
Tara Babcock No, I don't drink.

How about a favorite food to go along with the drink?
Tara Babcock Vegan Tofutti Cuties! They're non-dairy tofu ice cream fudge sandwiches! SO AMAZING! Better than the animal byproduct that's for sure... and way less pus... EW!

What kind of music are you listening to these days?
Tara Babcock I love heavy metal, but I like all kinds of music sometimes!

Tell us something you got away with?
Tara Babcock I used to be a bad kid when i was younger. I would shoplift a lot. I have no criminal record and I've never been arrested... heh!

Which celebrity would you like to meet and why?
Tara Babcock Ben Affleck. Started out as a joke about me thinking he's sexy. I'm not sure if it's true anymore or not. I think it's the role he plays in movies that's hot.

Best pickup line you've ever heard?
Tara Babcock Well since I have to keep it rated G, I'll say "Wanna have [interc######]?"

Worst pickup line you've ever heard?
Tara Babcock They are all terrible!

If you could be a super hero, what would that superhero be like?
Tara Babcock I would want to read minds! It would make everything so much easier!

What the worst prank you've ever played on anyone?
Tara Babcock I dunno, I've never really pulled any elaborate pranks or anything. Mostly just scaring people. I wanna try the saran wrap on the doorway and the butter on the floor!

What the worst prank anyone has ever played on you?
Tara Babcock I've never been pranked!

Find a lamp and out pops a Genie, you get one wish, what would it be?
Tara Babcock I would ask to be 5'1"!

Are you single now?
Tara Babcock Yes!

Give us the dirt on your dating life. Any first date rules?
Tara Babcock I don't really date. I am less about love relationships and more about friends and benefits... safe and exclusive benefits! The idea of a traditional relationship is a bit flawed to me and what I'd want in a guy is a bit unattainable, but I'm not fully opposed to it. I'd like a fairy tale!

Do you kiss on the first date?
Tara Babcock Of course! Why not? If he's hot!

How many kids in high school have asked you out?
Tara Babcock Not many. I was kinda intimidating and after 10th grade I started college, but a lot of guys hit on me there.

Should a person call right away or wait a few days?
Tara Babcock Doesn't matter, do what you want. I don't judge little actions like that, but I prefer text unless I REALLY like you.

What kind of guy bugs you?
Tara Babcock Skinny guys that think they're cool. I hate the type of guys that does TOO much in the way of looking good to where it's conceited and he starts looking girly. I also hate undeserved big egos.

What does a guy need to do to make you stay?
Tara Babcock Be super buff and cool and hot! Sweet is always good too!

What's the worst place to meet a guy?
Tara Babcock A club, that's why I never go unless I am paid. Eeek!

On a date... What does the person have to do to make it perfect for you?
Tara Babcock Be hot, be yourself, have fun and be great in bed!

Do you have any dreams or goals you're shooting for?
Tara Babcock Just wanna keep perfecting myself, my career and my life! I just wanna be comfortable in life and happy with the people I love around. I've never been Miss Prada Bag or the one who cares about how much money you have. I like nice quality, good looking stuff, but within reason!.

Where can we expect to see you at in the future?
Tara Babcock You will see me in a lot more magazines and website features (like this one at Modelbee! Thanks!) and at a lot more events! Come see me at Glamourcon 52 this year and visit my super hot site: tarababcock.com!

Do you have anything to say to your supporters and your future fans?
Tara Babcock Thank you so much to everyone! I think I already expressed earlier a bit of my gratitude to all of you who have helped me get where I am today! I couldn't do it without you and I love each and every one of you!
