Get Familiar With Karen Vi


Get familiar with Karen Vi (a model and singer from San Antonio, Texas) via this “viral” video by IceJJFish that is so ridiculous yet so mesmerizing because she’s in it looking se*y.

According to thatraw.

Name: Karen Vi

Height: 5’4

Weight: 118 lbs

Measurements: 34-24-35

Profession: Student, promotional model

Piercings/Tattoos? ”Absolutely none! I love the all natural look on skin.”

Got any guilty pleasures? “Drenching my food in hot sauce. Once I start I just can’t stop.”

Secret no one knows you have? “I’m a big classic rock girl, and probably know and can sing along to ALL of the same songs your parents grew up with.”

Weirdest thing you’ve ever done? “Beat the video game Zelda twice in a day on the old school Nintendo 64, boy was that intense.”

Do you have any unusual talents? “I imitate voices. Original ACDC singer Dennis Laughlin, Pat Benetar, Shakira, Britney Spears , Ginuwine, Smeagel from Lord of the Rings. Yeah let’s not get into that…”

Special skills? “I can sing my lungs out!”

Is there a part of your body that you’re most proud of?
 “My bu**. When I was young and developing at a such a fast pace, I would cry to my mom and ask her why she gave me this huge thing. What the hell did I know? Now all I do is thank her!”

Tell us about yourself. (This one is IMPORTANT!) – “When I’m not in front of the camera, at work, or out, I’m usually at home, without makeup, and relaxing with my dogs while watching a movie. I love a good laugh, the taste of beer, shooting some paint b*** on the field, and watching live music. I’m an animal/dog lover, and a big time foodie. On my downtime, I enjoy hanging out with my family, shopping with my friends, working out, the outdoors, traveling, dancing, and reading. I’m an adventurous ball of energy!”

What work are you most proud of? Why? “Being published in the swimsuit issue of San Antonio Trends magazine. I didn’t make the cover, but the fact that I was on a full page of one of those glossy sheets meant everything. My heart still skips a beat overtime I flip through it.”

How did you get into modeling? “Many girls have known modeling was their dream since they were five and have fantasized about the glitz and glamourous life, but I never really wanted to be a model. I grew with a big family that consisted of mainly boy cousins, and I could always be found jumping off trees, running around getting dirty, and basically finding things to do that consisted of someone getting hurt in the end. I revealed my girly side when the time came, but I never kept up with or had an interest in the modeling industry as a teen. It wasn’t until I was 19 and I received an invitation through the mail to participate in Miss Texas USA 2008. It cost a ridiculous amount of money and I didn’t place, but challenging myself stroke a fire in my competi*ive spirit, and from then I went on to win Conexion’s Hottest Latina 2009 for the San Antonio Express News and placed 2nd in Miss San Antonio American Beauty the following year. In a way, I’m glad that I grew up the way I did because both the guys and my father gave me my adventurous, kick ass, thick skinned side, which can help in the modeling industry when it will try to push you to do things that are beyond your limits. You just have to learn to say no, and to this day I have had to a couple of times.”

In terms of acting, what kind of actor do you think you are (a leading lady, a character actor, etc)? “I can play anything from the girl next door to the se*y protagonist to the girl you pass by on the streets in the background, but I prefer to be the funny one.”

What are your long term modeling goals? “A gig in entertainment and show hosting.”

What advice do you have for models just starting out? “DO NOT compare yourself to other women. There will always be someone in this world who is prettier, smarter, more fit, and more beautiful, but the key is to know who you are as a person and what you can bring to the table.”

Confidence Tip: “When in front of the camera, act like you’re the baddest b**ch on this Earth, even if you have to fake it!”

Who do you look up to in the modeling industry/who inspires you? “Raquel Welch, one of the most famous models/se* symbols of the sixties who was only 5’3. I can relate because we are both peti*e and have a curvy body, proving that you can be under 5’5 and become a successful model. I think that most women can relate to my height because in the US, 70% of women are 5’5 and under, including most swimwear and lingerie models because of their proportionate sizes. You don’t have to be a runway model or wafer thin and tall to look good in designer clothing, that’s what sky high platform heels are for!”

What would be your dream job in modeling (traveling, working for someone you’ve always wanted to work for, etc)? “To be a ring girl, a guest blogger on a se*y magazine like Cosmopolitan or Maxim, or get re-published. If I had any of those, I could die happy today.”
