Women We Love: Rachelle Wilde

What’s in a name?

Well, when the name is Rachelle Wilde, the answer is: all you need to know.

Coming up like a tidal wave of energy and enthusiasm, Rachelle Wilde has taken the modelling world by storm, quickly rising through the ranks to become one of Canada’s hottest talent properties. Obviously stunning, and professionally intense, Rachelle balances her wild side with a down-to-earth realism and brilliant sense of humour that take challenges by the horns and show them who’s really the boss. In short, it doesn’t take much to get Rachelle talking — and when she does, what she has to say is well worth learning from.

Name: Rachelle Wilde

Occupation: Playboy Cover Model and Naked News Anchor

Education: Diploma in Dentistry…random I know.

I love to help others whether it be with my Sick Kids charity, or SPCA fundraisers or just helping out a friend. I’m a real girl with big personality that can get anybody laughing…that makes me awesome ūüôā

How did you get started on your current career track?

I was asked to shoot with Playboy¬†years ago but I didn’t feel it was the right time. Then in October of 2010 I shot my spread and sure enough I made my pictorial debut by making the cover of Playboy Lingerie April 2011. Then I made the cover for France’s Filles De Playboy Special 100th Issue, and finally my third cover with my best friend for Playboy Lingerie,¬†in October, 2011. I have been very fortunate to have been published in over 8 issues last year.

What gives you the most satisfaction as an artist?

I get excited to show my family my work that I have done. I come from a very liberal family and they get so excited and proud, and that makes me happy.

What motivates or inspires you in your work?

What motivates me is probably the fact that when I was starting out people told me I could never make it as a model. I was “too curvy” and it just wouldn’t happen. Well I think when someone tells you can’t do something, it’s the drive within myself to prove them all wrong. And my mom inspires me. She makes me believe in myself but always teaches me to be a good person and to love life to the fullest every day.

Do you have a personal work philosophy?

Work hard, play harder! I love to have fun with friends and family. And I’m contantly travelling all over the world.

If you weren’t doing this, what could you see yourself doing?

If I wasn’t doing this, I would be working with kids somehow. I was the neighbourhood babysitter growing up and i think you can learn so much from children.

What are you working on right now?

Right now I am very busy. I am working on a big show called MMA Discipline. I am the main host and MC for all our live events as well. It takes a lot to research all your fighters and you need to be on your toes at all times when interviewing. It’s the greatest thrill in the world to interview someone live in front of THOUSANDS of people. I also have a new website launching soon, so my fans can get more access to behind the scenes pics and new merchandise.

What do you first notice about a guy?
I first notice a guy’s smile and teeth. I¬†used to work in the dental field, so you can tell a lot about someone from their oral hygiene!

What gets you interested?
What gets me interested is someone who can make me laugh. I love to be silly and make jokes about myself or others. If you can keep me laughing I will never be bored!

What keeps you interested?
What keeps me interested is someone that I can have fun with, laugh and have similar interests. I love to travel, eat exotic and fun foods, and like I said still make me cry laughing!

What’s your number one deal breaker?
I need someone that is down to earth and easy going. My biggest turnoff is someone that thinks they are better than others. We are all equal; remember to treat others fairly.

Turn-ons:
Must be sweet and romantic but still a man’s man. I love a man that can eat! lol I’m a huge foodie, so it’s important that someone I date is spotaneous and adventurous in their food selections! Even if that means spending the night over the porcelain throne sick together. HAHA

Turn-offs:
Bad teeth; smelly; someone without a sense of humour; cocky.


To stay in shape, what’s your basic diet look like?:¬†I watch what I eat but I do like to enjoy while on vacations. I think it’s great to always try new things. Meat is ESSENTIAL in all meals! I could never date a vegan!
What sort of fitness plan, if any, do you follow?: I love hot yoga and JOGA (its a yoga for jocks program), as well as hit the gym for cardio and weights. In the summer I love to bike and go hiking.
What’s next for you? What’s your next big idea or project?

Who knows? But I am in no rush to slow down any time soon. I only know how to GO, move FORWARD¬†and reach for my dreams! This won’t be the last time you will hear the name Rachelle Wilde!

Favourite workout tip: Have a workout buddy. Even when you feel lazy and dont want to go, you have a buddy that will kick your butt into WORKOUT KICK BUTT MODE.

Favourite recipe: I have a sweet tooth, but my favourite dessert to make at home is Apple Caramel Crepes….omg I’m already drooling!

iPhone or Android:¬†Android…damn you Blackberry Messenger…I just cant get away!

What are you driving: I just sold my Hummer H3 truck…looking for a new vehicle. Any good suggestions boys??

One thing guys should know when talking to a beautiful woman: Our eyes are on our head…not in our boobs. I know, I was shocked too!

Absolute WORST experience on set/shoot:  Waayyy too embarrassing to tell!

I am a bit of a dork. I love minerals…like rocks. I had a rock box growing up and have always been fascinated with Geology.
