“We were on that ride where the seat spins while the actual ride is spinning, and I’m wearing a one-piece. And all of a sudden the whole entire top falls off!” says the 20-year-old, who hit mainstream radar after her sexy Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue cover. “I’m holding myself, laughing, turning bright red, but a lot of people are watching, so they kicked us out of the Santa Monica Pier — it was so embarrassing.”
Pause, then the kicker: “You wouldn’t think that would happen with a one-piece!”
The blonde beauty’s curves have conjured up many admirers and romance rumors, including speculation that she was dating NFL quarterback Mark Sanchez and this past year was chatting up New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow.
She addressed her relationship status, saying,
“I’m going to be less emotionally involved this year.”
As for her ever-growing appeal, she says, “I grew up in Florida riding horses, so for the majority of my life I was either in boots and jeans or a bathing suit. … I understand why my male followers like me.”
Thankfully, those fans can expect a few more bikini-heavy photoshoots from the Florida girl.
“It’s like any job,” she tells GQ. “You find your strengths and play them up.”
