Our May 2009 cover model is Destiny from Orlando, Florida. Destiny is a model and stunt rider, who performs tandem stunt riding with her fiancé and professional stunt rider Bill Dixon (Bill D). Together they are the reigning undefeated Tandem Stunt Team Champions for three years running. Destiny and Bill will also be staring in the upcoming sportbike stunt series Stunts 101.

Aside from modeling and stunting, Destiny told us her ambition is 'To be the best at what I love to do!' Her hobbies include wake boarding, 4-wheeling, and going fast on anything that gives her an adrenaline rush. Destiny describes her personality as 'elegantly twisted,' and when asked what people tell her is her best attribute; she said 'Hmmm…do I have to pick just one…LOL?' Her turn-ons include laughing and tattoos, while people with bad attitudes are a turnoff. Destiny also admitted that she's also a sucker for switchback wheelies.

We asked Destiny to share a few of her favorite things with us and asked her a few short interview questions.
