Amanda Carrier

Los Angeles, California

Best thing about L.A.: “I like the attitude out here. Everyone has a goal.”
Worst thing about L.A.: “The parking is way worse than the traffic. Since I moved here I have gotten a million parking tickets. You have to obsess about it: Is there enough money in the meter? It’s a pain.”
Profession: Model/actress
First job: Pizza delivery girl. “I made a lot of money. People were tipping me well.”
Favorite musician: Missy Elliott
Upcoming plans: “I want to go skydiving. I don’t know where this is coming from, but lately I’ve been kind of fearless.”

Turns out that her ring opponents get off easy, for this Louisiana-born beauty has an even more rugged new hobby: firearms. “I like going to the shooting range,” Amanda declares. “I shoot AK-47s. I can handle the throwback. I’m pretty strong.” Watch yourself, California!
