christine: My chances…hm’…pretty good! Aah, only kiddin’ all the girls are smoking hot so all I can do is pray for the folks out there to send those votes my way, hope they fancy me more, is all I can say! I made flyers to get votes, went to hand them out at Menlyn mall. I made t-shirts with “Vote for Me” printed on, and I am putting up posters this week to get them votes flying my way.
PIM: What would you do if you win FHM Models. How important is it to your quests as a model?You are from Pretoria. Do you have a beeeg PRETORIA BACKING coming into the TOP 10 lol christine: ;)) Smile from ear to ear! It’s a doorway to endless possibilities! The exposure I will get… and it will definitely boost my acting career! I am going to ask TUKS FM if they’ll support me by doing a little interview with me! Getting all the folks from pretty Pretoria to back me!.
PIM: Speaking of which.Whats a typical day in the life of Christine badenhorst?
christine: Taking every day as a blessing! Going to my yoga class with Master G in the mornings, having a healthy breakfast and doing whatever is planned for the day… Usually I have a photo shoot planned, or a casting in Jozi. I make time for reading, chatting on the internet with friends and horseback riding. Happy days!!!
P.I.M: How do you approach these shoots(fhm top 10) surrounded by a bevy of beauties and the self Realisation that HEY IM TOP TEN and I COULD BE THE FHM home grown Honey for 2009?What a prestigeous title?PIM is proud.

P.I.M: Has shooting for this comp been any different.I mean it was an awesome field and you emerged TOP 10.?What do you guys do now. More Pics.ANY special events you guys lining up or shooting for?
christine: The shoot was a bit more daring than the stuff I am used to. It was definitely steamier than some of my previous shoots. It is an experience and a half, pure awesomeness!

PIM: If you had to have KIDNAP any sportsman/celeb, who would that be ha ha?
christine: I’d go for soccer player Ronaldo – Manchester United / Portugal (better have trained body guards during 2010). A SA celebrity, who else but Ryk Neethling! Purely deliciousness.
PIM: Your dream shoot…Pick a location, a theme ?
christine: Italy, on a hot summer’s day. Italian men staring, while I pose in an unbuttoned white dress, dancing under a fountain in the middle of a village… Or Mexico, a hot, sweaty, gorgeous shoot..Or a shoot on a horse range somewhere. I'll wear a sexy Sheena outfit with cowboy boots and a stunning black stallion by my side! ;)
PIM: Oh and what would you regard as the sexiest part of your body and a guys? :) PIM loves what we see.
christine: Tx PIM! :) My legs and I'll also give it up for my precious puppies!! Hey pretty girls!
PIM: What was the most bizarre and funny come on line that a guy has used on You?
christine:Guys that I have come to know are over all very sweet and respectful, but you do get the once now and then dude with all head and no brains ;) I have a good pick up line for you though… “Are you wearing space pants? Because your ass is out of this world”.
PIM: 2010..in SA...UR THOUGHTS..How do you think we will handle it, ?
christine: I have great trust and faith in our country’s ability to handle the 2010 honorably and with great respect! I am proud of our country for coming this far. South-Africa has come a long way and it is time to show the world that we are united as one and that we are like any other 1st world country capable of hosting the World cup magnificently! … O, and em, I am surely capable of showing Ronaldo a good scenic tour around the neighborhood… ;)
PIM: Tell us about one talent that you have those we never able to guess?
christine: I can focus both eyes to the center of my face…and then focus one in the middle while the other is looking straight ahead…hm’…no for real.. I can draw, well I think I can. All my brothers are great artists. My Uncle François is a well-known SA artist, along with my cousin Robert, AKA: Bobby who is a really gifted painter.

A romantic evening planned with good food and Spanish music playing in the background. Afterwards relaxing on a thick furry white carpet in front of a blazing fire … hmmm.Or, doing anything fun and tasteful here in our home country, I am practically game for anything.
