Camille Ford – October 2015




CAMILLE FORD OCTOBER 2015 HOT CHICK OF THE MONTH

Camille Ford Oct 2015To finalize the four year journey on this column (Editor’s Note: We’ll be back in January 2016 with a new & improved format for our feature models), in the spirit of completeness, it only seemed apropos to appoint one of the most “complete” women around as a result. That’s why we are proud to present, perennial player on our annual Top 100 Sexiest Women Alive and perennial partaker on our magazine’s weekly podcast, Smartasses Radio— the one and only, Camille Ford. Plus, hey, it’s her birthday.

Whether it was on Food Wars or Best Places I’ve Ever Been on the Travel Channel, The Movie Show for On Demand or Design Wars on HGTV… there’s no doubt your viewing habits have voyaged in sight of this effervescent Libra before. But there’s so much more to this venturesome October-born, whom many call a living Lara Croft, than her television shows. As a matter of fact, she’s not all that particularly fond of the idiot-box herself, “If you watch TV more than 2 hours a week or think bugs are gross, we are probably not going to be friends,” Ford says. “I love adventure and danger and learning by doing. I don’t care who ya are, just keep up. I have always played sports- soccer, rugby, volleyball, baseball, football, you get the idea. I am very competitive and love being forced into intense focus. I also am very into mountain biking, downhill and XC, and think scuba diving is as close to being an astronaut one can get without actually having to be really, really, really smart.”

Certainly no one here is going to accuse Camille of not appreciating life while it’s here to be appreciated. But if you’re wondering why we like to think of Miss Ford as the female total-package, it’s as much about the way she role-models for the gender, as it is her intrepid lifestyle and dashing good looks. “I’m not a guy’s girl or a girl’s girl. I enjoy the energy women bring to a room, especially when they are confident and fun, but I really wish I had more girlfriends that I respected. Sadly, in general, women apologize for themselves and use the fact that they’re female as a gross excuse for being boring. I wish women would stop thinking being feminists is going to solve anything. Celebrating the differences is so much more rewarding than forcing sameness.” So what about guys? “My life and my hobbies are not particularly masculine because most guys nowadays are little bitches. HA! No seriously though, I hang out with men more, it’s easier to be around people who tell you how they feel and don’t get offended when you do the same.”

Camille Ford Oct 2015As far as Miss October’s other interests go, they’re about as eclectic as the restaurants & bars she visits when hosting Big Night Out on the FYI network. “Getting dressed up and shoe shopping is a guilty pleasure. I hate Prius cars and florescent lights. I also don’t like cats very much. I really want a farm. I love falconry. I read obsessively. I am studying medicinal botany and midwifery right now for fun. I am a huge supporter of Riverkeeper Alliance, anti fracking, and Wounded Warriors.”

In terms of her adventuring, this Eugene, Oregon native has been spelunking in Honduras, climbed glaciers in Iceland, hunted moose in Canada, rode motorcycles in Egypt, kayaked on the Jordan River, rock climbed in Zion Canyon, did cattle wrangling in Arizona, and also enjoys trail running, backcountry skiing, skydiving and competitive running. Lately, she says “I’m busy filming a few different shows and always looking for more adventure. I have a women’s only fitness studio in NYC and Nyack called SASS (Sensual Aerobic Sculpting Studio) where the premise is, if you want to feel sexy and like a woman… you can’t work out like a man.”
