Cover Girl – Shannon – Issue 113
Whereabouts are you from?
I was born in Canada, then moved to NZ and used to live on a farm up in Warkworth. Now I live in Auckland.
You look familiar — where have we seen you before?
I won Miss Drag Masters 2006 and also the 4 & Rotary bikini comp in 2005, plus I’ve been doing heaps of promo work lately.
Which Hollywood star can you identify with the most?
Cameron Diaz, 'cause she’s really gumby just like me.
You have to leave now to a deserted island and can only take one person and three things, what are they?
My boyfriend, my bikini, a chapstick and a jumper.
What do you look for in a guy?
They have to have a great personality, be active, very sporty and adventurous.
What would we have to do to get you to go on a date with Ed?
Nothing! I’d just go anyway. (S**t I’m in! — Ed)
So what are you driving at the moment?
A Subaru Impreza WRX that I own with my boyfriend.
A WRX is a quick car! ever managed to talk your way out of a speeding fine?
No, I’m not a very good talker! I always get the ticket!
Do you have any hidden talents?
I can play the guitar, and my boyfriend who is an electrician is currently teaching me how to wire up houses.
What’s the funniest thing that’s ever happened to you?
Well I won the 4&Rotary Nationals bikini comp wearing only a Super Liquor plastic bag. My car got broken into at the show, and all my gear got stolen out of it. How’s that for Kiwi ingenuity!
How about an embarrassing moment?
I’m always embarrassing myself doing things like walking into glass doors and mirrors! it happens all the time.
