What brought her to Vegas I own a coffee shop in Montana. I opened it when I was 19. It’s a drive-through coffee shop, and it’s been doing really badly. I moved out to Vegas to make money to send back to my coffee shop.

Not your average job interview You show up and take your clothes off, and they judge you on how you look in your bikini. I had this paper that was supposed to have your number on it for the judges, and I was so nervous I kept folding it and unfolding it. When I got up there and they asked for my paper, I had to unfold it really quick and it was all sweaty and wrinkly. The judges busted up laughing. I think they thought it was cute.

Party personality I’m more of a bar person. I like the conversation, the sit-and-talk.

Weirdest customer request When I was working at Tao, we had to wear fishnets, and some guy paid me $400 to have my fishnets.

Favorite part of her job I love being a part of the party without the hangover. I love Vegas, because you get people from all around the world. I’m from a small town, so there’s no culture. You’ve got your cowboys and your Indians, and that’s it.
