In honor of our special edition, and as a tribute to Texas, we decided to bring back the good ol' Up Close Model interviews, and what better place to start than Texas? Miss Callie won the second round of our online model-search contest, which awarded her this great opportunity. This 5'4" Fort Worth, Texan, loves two things: steak and football. Now that's a true Texan. For more photos, visit www.minitruckinweb.com.

When did you start modeling? I started back in early 2004.
What do you like about modeling? I like the confidence and motivation it has given me. It has also made me a much stronger person.
Goals or future aspirations? My main goal would be to be featured in Maxim or Stuff. I have no idea what happened to FHM, but that was one of them, and now it's gone. Just more magazines, calendars, and host events.
What are your most memorable modeling experiences? Memorable would be traveling with American Iron Horse to Daytona and Las Vegas-amazing hotels and drinks. Not to go too far into detail, but I had such a blast with my girls in Las Vegas.
If you could visit anywhere in the world, where would you go and why? Australia! I've wanted to go there for so long. It just seems like such a beautiful place with a lot to do and I've always wanted to attempt to surf.
If you weren't modeling, what do you think you would be doing? Oh, man, I have no idea where I would be. Maybe graduated from college, fitting into a crowd. Oh, man, that would have sucked (laughs).
What do you do for fun? Play basketball, MySpace, watch TV, wakeboard, anything on the water, throw around the football, and watch the previous TU vs ATM game.
Do you have any interesting hobbies? I built and can build websites. I am obsessed with football, if that counts.
What is your daily routine like? I have no routine ... every day is different (laughs). But TV, seeing a certain someone, and eating meat always have a part in it.
How do you stay in shape? I used to workout religiously, but when I stopped for a while I lost a lot of weight. So, right now, I am just a health freak and love to dance around my apartment.
