There’s no doubting that Jade-Marié Porter will get your imagination running – she’s hella feisty and here as our LW Babe of the Week.
Full name: Jade-Marié Porter
Day job: Corporate/ Part-time student
Likes: Not giving a damn
Special talents: Can probably Snowboard better than you.
Give us a quick introduction to Jade-Marie?
I’m that girl that’s dancing on the table at the club but also the one curled up on a couch reading philosophical theories in her spare time. I’ll also take up any opportunity for an intellectual debate.
What does a day in your life usually consist of?
I wake up ridiculously early. I make sure to watch the sunrise each morning and sometimes I meditate, then I’m off to gym. I start work at 8am (traffic kills me but I blast hip-hop and have a trap party in my car every morning, so I don’t murder someone on the road). I end work at 5pm and I’m off to gym again. At night I used to get insanely high but I gave up all intoxicating substances, so I listen to my music and do some work/ study (Personal training and Bcom). Gone are my days of endless partying because now I have to be an adult and stuff you know?!
If you could play any lead role in a movie, which would it be?
I’d be the female version of Jordan Belfort in Wolf of Wall Street. Why? Uh, have you seen the movie?!
What do you think people’s first impression of you is?
Probably that I’m loud, confident and genuinely don’t care what your opinion of me is.
How do you see yourself spending this Summer season?
Bikinis, sunsets and good (sober) vibes – oh and I’m aiming on not wearing pants at every opportunity I get (pants are so overrated).
What are weekend’s made for?
My weekends used to consist of partying until the sun came up, but since my lifestyle change, I do a lot of cool stuff. I love hiking, and outdoorsy things. I also have a weekend house on the Vaal River, so I’m out there having myself a time Wakeboarding, Jet-skiing and all those dope things.
Tell us something that you think would surprise us?
There are twins somewhere out there with half of my DNA. I donated my eggs to this lovely couple and she conceived twins (God help those parents if they have to handle two kids like me, my parents can barely handle one).
What goes through your mind when you are posing for the camera?
“Damn, I could really do with a cheeseburger or something… this photoshoot prep got me hungry AF”.
How would best explain sex appeal?
Confidence. When a guy knows exactly what he wants and takes charge, I honestly love it. I’m hella feisty, so I need someone who can put me in my place.
You walk into a nightclub, which guy grabs your attention first?
The artsy-looking one with tattoos and long hair. I’m a sucker for pretty boys, that’s my type.
What would you rather be doing right now?
I’d rather be on the beach somewhere tropical being served a fresh coconut by some bronzed beach God whose English vocabulary is limited to “Yes Princess”.
What do you find is the best way for your to relax and unwind?
I love running [laughs], that sounds so “I’m such a perfect and healthy model omg”, but for real, it helps me clear my head.
What’s the first thing that comes to mind when we mention:
Late nights? Long, deep chats on my couch outside listening to my favorite music, arguing existential theories and philosophies. Oh, sometimes late nights include partying so hard that the club kicks you out at 7am but hey – all about balance.
Good times? Laughter. My friends are amazing and you know we’re having a good time when you laugh so hard you can’t breathe (it’s normally comparing those unsolicited dick-pics we receive).
Sensual? Like what makes me feel sensual? Music. Sexy, baby-making music.
Attraction? Undeniable energy attraction, when you’re so attracted to someone your auras have a little party across the room even if you’re not looking at each other.
Tease? Me. [Laughs] yeah not even gonna lie about that one. Definitely me.
Spontaneous? [Laughs] every night out with my baes. We’re a group of six best girl friends and we’re called “The Baes” – yeah, I know, sounds like we’re trying to be in a Mean Girls movie or something but the name just stuck because that’s what we call each other. When we go out together you know things are about to get wild.
