PIM: Hi Yolandie Thank you for gracing PIM.........all the way from the Pretoria. (am I correct)Tell us more about yourself?Are you a girl next door or Adrenaline junky?
yolandie: I'm definately an adrenaline junky. I love fast cars, bikes and activities like bungee jumping. Life's too short to miss out on the fun stuff.
Tell us more about your modelling. How did it start?
I started modelling when I was 9years old, but only did it for a year. 2 Years ago me and one of my friends went for a photo shoot just for fun. I entered FHM and here
we are now.
PIM is honored to have you! Your ambitions and goals as a model? Where do you see yourself in ten years time?
I love photogenic modelling and would love to be a model for Guess. I'm not too comfortable with the cat walk, so I doubt whether I would go into that. I'd rather have my pictures taken and at the current moment I'm furthering my studies and the modelling is kind of a breakaway from reality.
What do you like most about modeling? What do you like least?
What I like most is the confidence one develops by challenging oneself. By taking yourself out of your comfort zone, one starts to learn new things as well as one's strengths and weaknesses. What I dislike most about modelling is the inner fighting amongst participants. Modelling is mainly focussed on external looks, but models should never forget the importance of being beautiful on the inside as well. After all, external beauty fades while internal beauty last forever.
So you are part of the FHM MODELS 2010 Top 100. Tell us more about being in the top 100 in SA.
How do you fancy your chances.I see theres some tough competition there?
Yes, I couldn't believe it when I received the mail that I'm under the TOP 100. I'm very happy and fortunate at the same time. There is definitely very tough competition. South Africa is truly blessed with beautiful women. The models are beautiful and it will be a huge personal accomplishment to be under the TOP 10.
So suppose you win FHM MODELS Yolandie, you are probably on a stringent fitness regime. What are you doing to maintain that hot bod?
Well, I must confess...I love chocolates and I really had to cut down a bit. Going to the gym helps me to stay focussed on my goal.
Back to the FHM models. So is it tough. What have you been doing in terms of getting them votes. Give us a brief itenary on what you have to do to compete in this comp 100%. Are you doing alot of shoots, promotions etc?
Being a financial manager takes up a lot of my time. So I don't really have the time to do alot of shoots or promotions. I therefore depend heavily on my friends and word of mouth to earn those votes.
Your dream shoot…Pick a location, a theme ?
I would love to do a shoot in Venice, Italy. Theme: La Dolce Vita
Oh and what would you regard as the sexiest part of your body and then a guys?
The sexiest part of my body ..... uhm, I would have to say my eyes because through my eyes I see alot of sexy.....hahaha
Where can we find you on a typical weekend if you not doing a modeling shoot:
Definately in a movie, at a braai with friends, walking my dogs or on a speedbike.
What was the most bizarre and funny come on line that a guy has used on you?.
LOL.... one guy came to me asking if I arrived in that blue car? I replied no....
Then he asked: do want to leave in it?
If you were a tour operator and had to entice people from around the World to visit South Africa , Pretoria Town in particular. How would you promote it?
I will definately take them to Loftus first and show them the home of the best rugby team in the world.........hahahah. I think then we can continue to important landmarks such as the Union Buildings, the Voortrekker monument, etc. A stop at a few water holes will be very appropriate so that visitors can meet the friendly people of Pretoria.

What will you do if you win FHM MODELS 2010 and how important would it be for you to win such an elusive competition?
I will be at a loss for words! It will be a big surprise and honour. I will use it as a platform to promote "being woman". By that I mean.....I will encourage all women to have a positive impact on their society. To remind them what powers they posses and how they can influence people around them to make South Africa better.
