Maidens we have a special treat for you! In a special edition of our Hottie of the Week we bring you our own exclusive interview with cover model Jason Aaron Baca!
Tell us five interesting things about you that most people would not know.
A) That I enjoy sushi and can eat it non-stop… My favorite is Uni which is Sea Urchin
B) I enjoy going on trips overseas such as the Bahamas or Maui. I love to escape to paradise
C) I am a simple normal down to earth guy. Most would think that I am complicated because of what I do for a living. But no… I’m a good guy, one that loves his family and wants to see a smile on his 2 nephews faces..
D) I love chocolate and donuts.. Yes that’s right, I just can’t get enough of them. They are my weakness.. I love those Mr.Goodbars as well as Chocolate Covered Fortune Cookies.. I am madly in love with them. They make me loco.. As for donuts, I have once eaten an entire dozen of those Krispy Kreme Glazed donuts.. And yes I got sick but I didn’t care.. The taste alone gripped me to no end.. It was me and that donut in paradise together.
E) I am shy… Yes, I am very quiet.. Introverted. Most think I’d be the opposite. But not me…
What’s the best part of being on the cover of romance novels? What is the worst?
The best part about being on a romance cover is seeing you there representing an authors hero. I mean how much better can it possibly get for a guy? I can’t really think of something better out there than being put on that kind of level.
I love it though.. I am honored to be a part of their covers.. The worst thing is when people thing we are arrigant individuals.I don’t think that they’d think that if they took the time to meet us in person.
Describe a typical day for you on one of your photoshoots.
Well I get up in the morning and put on an ice pack. Usually a person’s face is a little puffy from sleeping. After I remove the ice pack I put on a masque or peel. The one I use now is from Freeman and is a Cucumber Mint Peel-Off Masque. After the masque, I enter the shower where I use a deep pore cleanser scrub… then a honey almond scrub,followed by oil of olay’s exfoliating scrub. Finally I apply Dove’s Moisturizing Body wash. For the face I use clean & clear morning burst followed by a dove or olay moisturizing bar.
After the shower, I apply moisturizer, then an anti-aging eye balm, then Neutrogena’s Solutions Cream, followed by Garnier’s Deep Wrinkle roller which I apply around the sides of the eyes to eliminate crow’s feet. Then moisturizer. Then final moisturizer “Protective Lotion” put out by The Body Shop..
I believe in taking care of myself the day of the shoot. I also make sure to exercise 1 hour before my shoot. I want to look the absolute best for this. I want to make anyone that reads the book to have them gasp when they see me on the cover. I want to shock them and feel they can’t put the book down because of my striking looks.
When I walk into the shoot, I don’t just walk in, I glide in.. I know that I am the main event. I want the art director to realize that this guy is a stud and to be treated as though Fabio is here and nothing less. I have all the characteristics of a normal guy… skin hair , expression but I am unordinary in the way that I am as a person.
Which cover has been your favourite to shoot?
My interests are working out, staying in great shape and figuring out how to look my absolute best at all times.
Have you ever experienced an awkward moment on set?
Yes, not too long ago I was at a studio and the photographer dropped the boom down on my head. It did not feel good one bit.
Hey this stuff happens.. Good thing I wasn’t looking up or I’d be blind! Hey we are all human right? These things happen…
Quick fire questions!
Sunrise or sunset? sunrise! Hey I’m a morning guy.. give me a break
Where would you go on a first date? Bowling…. haha.. no just kidding, I’d take a first date on a nice dinner cruise and have prime rib!
Beach or Mountain? The beach.. You know it just feels much better with sand to walk on.
Favourite food? I love Prime Rib.. Something about it.
Favourite Drink? White wine…
Boxers or briefs? briefs .. I don’t like that loose out of control feeling… I like to know where I’m at.
Where can someone find your photos?
