Interview by Hasan Johnson

Ha Candy - Brooke welcome to Ha Candy! You are very beautiful, how long have you been modeling?
Brooke Banx - I think it's been 7 or so years!

Ha Candy - Now a days every girl in a bikini says she's a model lol. What's your definition of a true model?
Brooke Banx - someone who is published and makes an actual income off of it... (Catalogs, calendars, posters, ads, magazines, etc.)

Ha Candy - I know there's a lot of creeps in this business, have you ever met or worked with anyone that turned out to be an asshole?
Brooke Banx -  I've been lucky and most people have been great. There have been two or three questionable situations but everything can be dealt with in a civil manner. Assholes eventually get the reputation as assholes and tank themselves over time.

Ha Candy - You look like you should be on the big screen. Have you ever thought about acting?
Brooke Banx - I've gone out for a few auditions for big roles. I am just not a good actress. I'm too controlled as a person. I can host shows like nobody's business but acting like I'm another person or that I feel a way that I don't actually feel doesn't come easily to me.

Ha Candy - How would you best describe your personality?
Brooke Banx - agreeable , witty and sharp minded, open minded, fair, honest to a fault, ambitious with many ideas, always trying to please but with an intense need for justice as well.  I won't allow abuse of any kind to me, my friends or my family. I've always been kind of a nomad as well. I like traveling and constant movement in life.
Ha Candy - What do you like to do in your free time?
Brooke Banx - traveling, reading,  painting, learning a new skill, learning anything really, working out etc.

Ha Candy - Right now if you had to choose between your career and love, which would it be?
Brooke Banx - I've always chosen career over love. Basing your life around a relationship is dangerous ... People change .. Feelings change ... A career is forever... But sometimes you meet someone who is a game changer. You want to put more attention into them, then into your career goals ...the feeling of being in love is powerful..  The ideal balance is both love and career equally and that takes a little work ...  Luckily you can actually have it all.

Ha Candy - Who's your celebrity crush? We all have one or two lol
Brooke Banx - I'm not a celeb crush type girl .... Celebs are just people like everyone else ..

Ha Candy - Tell us something about yourself that people would be surprised to know...
Brooke Banx - I am finishing up a biology degree to go to either med school or become a CRNA or PA.. I also want to move into fitness modeling ..

Ha Candy - Do you find the women in your profession to be more supportive or envious?
Brooke Banx - supportive ... It is hard to get far being catty or envious ... You have to form a sisterhood ...

Ha Candy - Thanks Brooke for taking the time to sit down with us. Where can our viewers find you?
