Congratulations to Erica Ocampo from Los Angeles, California! The 22-year old beauty is currently in Bali with her boyfriend, professional surfer Warren Metcalfe. What tipped the scales in Erica’s favor was the fact that she did her steamy photo hoot in the sand at Keramas, one of Bali’s most popular surf spots. We caught up with Erica to find out a bit more about Miss May 2010…
I’m an actress and model.
How’d you find out about the Model Search?
Justin Coté wrote me! [just doing my job, I’m not a stalker!]
If you could go on a surf trip anywhere in the world, where would it be?
Hmmm… Well right now I’m in Bali and it’s pretty amazing! But I would love to visit the Philippine Islands, Australia, and Fiji.
You’d bring your boyfriend, right?
Haha maybe I should! He’s the sexiest surfer in the world.
Do you surf, if so, where’s your favorite spot?
I love to surf and my favorite spot right now is Padang Padang.
Did you do your photo shoot at Keramas on Bali? What was that like?
I shot at Keramas for a sunrise shoot so it was really early and we arrived at 4 a.m. before pretty much everyone. I hardly slept but didn’t care at all because it’s one of my favorite beaches and it was so beautiful and totally worth it. I had so much fun out there!
What do you find attractive about surfers?
There’s so much more inside than what the eyes see.
What’s your ethnicity?
I’m half Filipino and French.
Tell us something about you most people don’t know:
-I was born and raised in Los Angeles, CA.
-I had straight A’s in School my whole life—I’m smarter than you think.
-I have a black belt.
-I was the youngest makeup artist to ever start a career with MAC cosmetics and got discovered as a model by working there.
-People think I’m shy sometimes but you can ask me anything.
Last good joke you heard?
My friends Claudia and Denim from New Zealand always crack me up! I love the way they talk and they’ve got me saying stuff like “heaps” and “reckon.”
Will you send us some photos of yourself in your new bikini from B. Swim?
Of course! Thank you so much, I’ll make sure to wear it to my next photo shoot!
I’m featured in Far East Movement’s “Like A G6” music video (see below) as the lead girl; make sure you check it out because it’s my favorite song!
