Sexy Cybergirl Jeannie Santiago loves cooking and the outdoors, and is the girl to have at your side at the end of the world.
*Playboy.com: What makes you feel sexiest? *
Doing feminine things. Some of the best chefs in the world are men, but I like cooking and taking care of my boyfriend: cooking for him and cleaning and doing housewife things even though I have a job and work. I love playing house and doing girly things like that, like baking cookies, being a maid of honor and helping my friend pick out dresses and venues for her wedding.
*Playboy.com: What inspired you to pose for Playboy.com? *
I’ve always wanted to and I’m getting a little older now and I thought gosh, if I want to do it when will I ever do it. People say you always regret the things you don’t do, not the things that you do. So I shot for Playboy.com and it’s been a really cool experience so far.
*Playboy.com: Where can we find you when you’re not modeling? *
I’m studying acting at university. I also take improv classes. I hike a lot, I run a lot. My favorite thing right now is thrifting. I go to thrift stores and try to find vintage pieces to make cool outfits. I want to start a blog called Recycled Chic. I’ve already styled a few of my friends; hopefully I can continue to do that.

*Playboy.com: Any important fashion tips for men? *
Wear clothes that fit. I feel like I’m not really picky, but I don’t like when clothes are too small or too big; I just think they should be fitted. Take the time to get your clothes tailored and your pants hemmed or a jacket taken in. I think it makes a huge difference. In L.A., especially, a good tailor is affordable and easy to find, so there’s no excuse to have clothes that don’t fit.
*Playboy.com: What is your biggest accomplishment in life? *
Last year I ran a marathon and it took six months of training. It was my first one and I did it in three hours and 51 minutes, and it was the hardest experience of my life. It was through L.A., 26.2 miles, and every inch of that there were people cheering us on; it was really inspiring. Two years before I volunteered and went and cheered on the runners, and I was just inspired by the runners who are cancer survivors, the elderly, all different ages and backgrounds, and I thought, “I’m perfectly healthy; I can do this!” So I did it and it was one of the best experiences of my life.
*Playboy.com: Which physical attribute do you most often get compliments on? *
My skin and my tan. I’m half Mexican and half Thai, so I’ve got pretty tan skin and I get compliments on it all the time. I’ve never actually been tanning in my life; I’ve just lived in Southern California so I’m lucky enough to maintain my tan all year round.
*Playboy.com: What is your favorite piece of lingerie? *
One piece that I have that I really like is a one-piece teddy that is black and sheer and it’s got little garters on it for thigh-highs. I had a boyfriend that loved the Packers, so I put on a Packers jersey over it with high heels; it was very sexy.
*Playboy.com: What is the best date you’ve ever been on? *
Best dates I’ve ever been on have been to Disneyland, those are my absolute most favorite dates ever.
*Playboy.com: How about the worst date you’ve ever been on? *
Worst date I’ve ever been on was with this guy I met on the street. I met him when I was walking with my coworkers in downtown L.A. and I thought, “Oh, that guy is cute and older,” so I smiled at him and exchanged information. He ended up being the worst date ever. He dropped me off at the restaurant and tried to go get free parking. When we sat down for dinner he kept ordering drinks for me even though I said I didn’t want any more drinks and then wouldn’t take me home when I wanted to go home. And then he got stoned in the middle of our date, so I was like, “Um, I’ll take a cab home then; I don’t need you to take me home.” I never wanted to see him again.
*Playboy.com: How does a man win you over? *
I like someone that is genuine, someone that works really hard, I like romance and I like to eat. So if a guy likes to go out to eat or have me cook for him I enjoy that. I also like a guy who enjoys being outside because I like to be outside all the time, going hiking or running, so that’s definitely a good quality to have.
Playboy.com: What would you do if the world ended tomorrow?
I would survive, and I’ll tell you why. I have nine 5-gallon bottles of water in my apartment because the water guy keeps delivering water even though I told him that we called the company to downgrade to a two-bottle-a-month plan, but he didn’t get the memo so he keeps delivering all this water. My dad lives on a farm in San Diego with chickens and farmland, so what I would do is hoard my water and my supplies, get in my car and get as far as I can, assuming roads are still working, and make my way down to San Diego to my dad’s. My dad was in Vietnam, so if anyone is going to survive, it’s him. If the world ended tomorrow I know I’ll survive.
*Playboy.com: Do you believe in love at first sight? *
I don’t think so. I think you meet somebody that you really like and you fall in love and you work hard at your relationship. I don’t believe in love at first sight; it’s a lot more difficult than that. I think if people lost the idea of love at first sight there would be much less divorce because I don’t think it’s that easy; relationships take work.
Playboy.com: What are your goals for the coming months?
I’m going on a trip to Europe. I haven’t booked my flight yet, but I know I’m going. It’s going to be an adventure! I’m going with one of my girlfriends. We’re not making any plans or reservations, we’re just going to go for months.
