One model stood above all the rest at a fundraiser at the Playboy Mansion last week.
Amazon Eve, billed by the Guinness Book of Records as “The World’s Tallest Model,” towered over all the bunnies—and the men—at the party, standing 6’ 8”.
“It was quite exciting—I’ve never been there,” Eve told FOX411 exclusively. “They didn’t tell me it was a lingerie party! Had I known, I would have dressed appropriately.”
But Eve managed to have fun—even with her clothes on. “The bunnies sized me up and treated my body like it was a stripper pole!”
The Turlock, Calif. native took an unusual route to becoming known as “The World’s Tallest Model.” After unfulfilling stints as a paralegal and a personal trainer, Eve learned from a client—who just happened to be a professional dominatrix—that there may be some gentlemen interested in meeting her.
“(The dominatrix) said that it would be a great way to make money,” Eve explains. “I said no at first, but she was persistent. She had a client fly in from Phoenix to meet me—I stood there for two hours in high heels while he was down on the floor, looking up at me. He paid me $800—it was that easy.”
The fellow from Phoenix was far from her most unusual client. “There is a guy who is the ‘Mr. Big’ of the oil business—really powerful,” says Eve. “I picked him up and he reverted to the fetal position in my arms. I was a little weirded out by that.”
While Eve’s main source of income may sound kinky, she insists it’s anything but, “It’s not sexual,” insists Eve. “It’s more about safety and security.”
Eve became an international sensation after appearing on the cover of an Australian tabloid. “One of my fans put me in touch with Zoo Weekly, says Eve. “They photographed me with a short little 5’ model for comparison—it was their most successful issue ever. The video went viral and became one of the most Googled things on the Internet!”
For all her professional success, Eve hasn’t had the easiest time with relationships. “For a while, I wouldn’t date men shorter than me,” laughs Eve. “I have dated six men taller than me—not a lot. You need variety. Men are like shoes—if they don’t fit, it’s not going to work! I don’t use height as a benchmark anymore. I’ve dated men as short as 5’4”.”
While Eve is currently dating, she hasn’t quite found “The One.” “I’m not in a committed relationship,” says Eve. “But I would love to get married one day—finding the dress, that’s another challenge!”
And what does Eve consider husband material? “I like a little old school, I like humor—I like men who are calm and don’t have drug or alcohol issue. But there’s no perfect man out there—I do know that!”
Now, in addition to her modeling, in 2011 Eve is looking to break in to acting (“I’d make a perfect Bond villain!”), give back to her favorite charity, and maybe even bare all for Hugh Hefner.
“Sure I would do Playboy,” declares Eve. “I would need to reduce my muscle mass and soften up a bit, but Hefner is the only one I would pose nude for, because he does it so tastefully.”
