If you’ve been reading PAS for a while now, you’ve noticed we get to meet some of the hottest import models in the world. Our endless quest to bring you the new ‘it girl’ every issue involves much more than meets the eye, sure they have to possess a sexy smile, killer curves and look super good in a bikini, but capturing our cover shot can literally take hours and in this case we wished it would’ve taken a few days just to spend time with the adorable Miss Tracy Nova. This Sin City bad girl certainly tops our list, as she’s one model we simply couldn’t get enough of. Her love for fast cars, tattoos, videogames and getting down on the dance floor make her every guy’s dream come true… oh yeah did we mention she’s also a total cutie and confessed she actually enjoys cleaning up? Let’s see if this clean freak gets down and dirty during our interview.

Tracy Nova: Meeting and working with a lot of creative and talented people. I also love the traveling!
PAS: When it comes to your look, what would you say are your strengths?

PAS: Wow, you’ve been very busy. Any dislikes about modeling?
Tracy Nova: It can be very hectic at times, but I really like being able to meet such great people and travel around the world for work! If I had to pick a dislike, it’d have to be not getting enough sleep! (laughs).

PAS: Do you have any pets?
Tracy Nova: Yes, I have a Chihuahua. But she doesn’t act like one at all! Her name is Keiko which means happiness in Japanese. She brings me happiness!
PAS: What do you do for fun?
