CAN YOU BRIEFLY INTRODUCE YOURSELF TO OUR READERS?
Hey! My name is Katelynn Ansari, I’m a model, host, ring girl, comedic actress, and cupcake lover. I’ve been modeling for 3 years and recently started acting and hosting events. I just love being in front of the camera!! I love being active so im usually out hiking, paddle boarding, at the gym, or playing with my puppy. I love my job, i get to travel for work and have fun doing it!
WHERE DID YOU GROW UP?
I grew up in Orange County, CA but currently live in Los Angeles, CA for work. I love LA, it feeds my need to try new things and meeting new people but Orange County represents my personality. I’m very laid back and easy going. I could spend every day at the beach if I didn’t need to work!!
HOW DID YOU FIRST BREAK INTO MODELING?
I got my first break working for Monster Energy as a Monster Girl at Supercross. Working for such a large company really helped get my face out there but my networking skills and relentless hustling got me to where I am now.
HOW IS THE INTERNET CHANGING YOUR CRAFT?
The internet is just amazing, I dont know how models did it before this! Instagram is basically my online portfolio and I get so much work through my website it’s ridiculous! The internet is a great way to connect people from all over the world.
WHERE DO YOU DRAW YOUR INSPIRATION FROM?
I draw my inspiration from myself really…and Cameron Diaz. I think you have to draw inspiration from yourself because you have to be unique…that’s why I coined “CupKates” as my nickname. To stand out you have to be different. As for Cameron Diaz, she was a model turned actress and ultimately that’s my goal!
WHAT PART OF YOUR BODY ARE YOU MOST PROUD OF?
My boobs…they’re real
WHAT DO YOU DO FOR FUN?
I hike, do hot yoga, enjoy sunday brunch (with mimosas), or mini getaways.
ARE YOU MORE OF A LOW-KEY PERSON, OR DO YOU LIKE TO LET YOUR HAIR DOWN?
I’m a low key partier. If I’m going to party I’d rather be at a dive bar in my flip flops and jean shorts than at a hot new night club in heels and a dress. If I’m partying, I’m drinking and letting loose, not standing at a table on my best behavior
GIVEN YOUR LARGE MALE FAN BASE, DO YOU EVER RECEIVE ANY STRANGE REQUESTS OR GIFTS?
Oh yeah!! some guy asked for my old shoes, another asked me to throw pie in their face, and a lot of my fans send me awesome gifts…I recently got a juicer and a gift certificate to a nice steak dinner…yummy!!
WHAT IS YOUR ULTIMATE GOAL IN LIFE?
Just to be happy and have unforgettable memories. I have my college degree in advertising so eventually I would like to get into that but as of now, im just taking life as it comes and enjoying it while its here!
WHAT ARE YOU CURRENTLY WORKING ON AND FOCUSED ON?
I’m focused on my hosting and acting career. So far, all is going great!
