Not long ago, we introduced you Jamie Thornton, an Instagram model and aspiring actress/comedian who, we predicted, has the look of the next Abigail Ratchford. After one look at Jamie, it's easy to see why we made such a bold prediction. She blends gorgeous looks with a down-to-earth personality, which instantly shot her up our list of major league crushes.
Naturally, after talking to Jamie Thornton late last year, we had to reach back out to her to get an idea of what she's got going on nowadays. As it turns out, well, it's a lot! But, c'mon, is anyone really surprised by that?
From modeling to traveling to a whole lot of stuff in-between, the Instagram model isn't just taking her newfound popularity and sitting back soaking it in. Nope, she's hustling and turning the opportunity she's had to pose for the camera into even more things — which is why we wanted to get an idea of who she is.
Jamie Thornton might be from a small town in Kentucky, but, after moving to Los Angeles to pursue her dreams, we got the lowdown on what makes her tick. So, keep on reading to see the seven things that Jamie told us we have to know about her — we promise your crush on her will only increase exponentially like ours did.
My Zodiac Sign Is A Leo. I love everything about my zodiac sign and it explains who I am to a T! Passionate, outgoing, driven and extroverted!
I Don’t Have Any Tattoos. As much as I’ve been tempted over the years with my sister, who has two, I still haven’t given in on getting one... yet. Could it be commitment issues or my fear of needles? Yes, absolutely! I can’t even commit to a hair or nail color, so thinking about some permanent ink on my body gives me anxiety!
My Eyes Change Colors. Sounds weird, right? But, actually, depending on the season or time of the year, they’ll go from being super light green to dark brown and all the colors in between! It’s actually pretty cool.
Golf Was MY Sport Of Choice In High School And College. I actually played for my high school golf team and loved it! I played all the time in college, and now have my clubs with me in L.A., so I can play whenever I have an off day. The courses are so beautiful on the west coast!
My Dream Job Has Nothing To Do With Modeling. Of course, being in Sports Illustrated would be a milestone in my modeling career and something I’d kill for, but, my ultimate dream job, is to become a comedic actress. I love to write comedy and make people laugh, so being on SNL would be my dream come true. Think of Amy Poehler and Tina Fey's long lost child; that’s me!
I'm Terrified Of Heights. It’s kind of contradictory, though, because I love roller coasters, I’ve been in doorless helicopters over the ocean, I’ve zip-lined over the coast of Haiti and skied from 10,000 feet above sea level, yet, when I’m just standing on top of a building not moving, I freak out! My adventurous side tries to overcome my height issue most of the time, but just standing high in the sky gets me weak.
I Can Rap. Yes, you read that right. I know the word to almost every song known to man. Music is a huge part of my life, and I listen to every genre! I can memorize an entire song within about four-to-five plays on my phone! So, maybe, if I'm modeling and comedy don’t work out, I can become the next Nicki Minaj. Dream big, right?
