Gia Allemand is best known for being the gorgeous swimsuit model on The Bachelor (Jake's season) and Bachelor Pad. Since then, her life has been a whirlwind of excitement. In addition to her post-Bachelor appearances, she has been cast as Ava Gardner in a new movie.
I recently interviewed Gia about her reality TV experiences, her new projects and how it all began!
1. What made you decide to go on the Bachelor to find the love of your life?
Gia Allemand: My boyfriend had just broken up with me a few months prior and I was having a hard time dating and my friends gave me the idea of "The Bachelor" so I gave it a shot.
Gia Allemand: There's alot of things looking back that I would change, but you can't live in regret.
Gia Allemand: I was back and forth about going on the Bachelor Pad, yet it was an opportunity to win a lot of money. I always wanted to start my own farm to rescue dogs and that is how I intended to use winnings.
4. Is it something you would do again?
Gia Allemand: Only if I'm single.
Gia Allemand: I had never thought about modeling. I was approached for a swimsuit competition when I was 19 and after I won, everything else kind of just went from there.
Gia Allemand: I am transitioning out of modeling, so right now I'm working on movie opportunities, and some songwriting.
Gia Allemand: Yeah, I like reality TV.
Gia Allemand: You get to show people the good and the bad in yourself.
Gia Allemand: Before modeling I was a professional ballet dancer. I took acting in high school and through half of college. Acting and performing was always a passion for me.
10. Why were you so drawn to this role as Ava Gardner?
Gia Allemand: Everyone has their icon that they relate to, andAva Gardner has always been mine. She has so many similarities that I see in myself. She was misunderstood, naive, and all she ever wanted was the fairytale ending.
Gia Allemand: No regrets. Reality TV has opened up alot of oportunities to help others. Charity has always been something close to my heart and after being on the show I get contacted alot to help out with charities and fundraisers.
12. What are your plans for the future?
Gia Allemand: Right now I'm just focusing on work.
13. What is a fun and interesting fact about you that would surprise your fans?
Gia Allemand: I can never sit still. Even when I am on the phone I pace back and forth.
14. Anything else you want to tell your fans?
Gia Allemand: I just want to thank everyone for supporting me. I really do appreciate it.
