Arika Sato is destined to be all over your TV screen. Actually, if you watched Paris Hilton’s My New BFF you may have caught her—but we’re going to guess you didn’t watch that. Better to peruse Arika’s YouTube channel, which is 90 videos strong and counting, for more of her entertaining personality. Does she have the chops to realize her dream of being a TV host or reporter? Her master’s degree from USC in broadcast journalism would imply so. Follow/fan her at @arikasato and facebook.com/arikasato for the full Arika Experience.
A nickname I have had: Everyone calls me Arika (pronounced ah-ree-ka) or you can say it the really Japanese way, sounds like an anime character! But some people call me Erica, Eureka, or Sato is my last name which might be easier.
The worst movie I have ever seen: I hate war movies, probably because I hate war, I hate blood and seeing people suffer and die, so every war movie I really don’t like!
I’m a nerd about: Everything, gadgets, technology, computers, books! I got my Master’s degree from USC and went through a lot of schooling by choice. I think you can call me a nerd!
Please worship my: Nerdiness! People think that models are dumb, but really there are a lot of smart girls out there!
Try not to stare at my: Body, even though it might be hard! Just kidding!
I would rather have a root canal than: Be a boy! How awful to have hair on your face and not have the option of wearing makeup or high-heels!
Sex is: Amazing with the right person!
If I went into porn, my name would be: Nothing because I wouldn’t go into porn! I wouldn’t want to be Google-able as a porn star!
If I was a Bond girl, my name would be: Catwoman! She’s so hot!
I don’t understand why people think I’m: Mexican! I’m Asian, but I love tanning.
Something cool about having boobs: Is that I can get away with a speeding ticket. Well, sometimes!
When I throw a party I make sure to have: Lots of hot girls!
The funniest comedian is: Myself! I make myself laugh!
People tell me I look like: A doll? Maybe it’s just my false lashes.
I’m too sexy for my: Shirt, so I like to dance around in my bikini!
I wish people would stop tweeting about their: Ex-boyfriends! No thank you. NEXT!
When I was 8 years old I thought I would be: A TV personality, and I did it! Woooohooo!
Stay out of my way when: I’m in a rush. I get frazzled and anxious when I am even a minute late!
My super power: I can see the future! I wish. But really, I believe if you work hard, it always pays off and your dreams will come true.
I am completely freaked out by: UFOs. Aliens in movies are soooo grosssss — except E.T.!
The most unpleasant word or phrase in the English language is: Poop. Ugh, I hate that word, and girls don’t do that!
A type of ladies’ underwear I don’t enjoy wearing is: Granny panties. Don’t wear them but I’d imagine they’d make my feel like my butt sags. Just the name is awful!
My most recent wardrobe malfunction was: A nip slip in my bikini, but now I try to wear cute pasties like heart shapes — so I can have wardrobe malfunctions “on purpose”!
My relationship with spectator sports is: I am a USC Trojan, so Trojan fan all the way when it comes to college football. When it comes to NBA, Lakers & Clippers duh, I was born and raised in LA and my family took me to a lot of Laker games so I grew up watching it! Clippers are getting way good so I gotta represent. Also the Dodgers, Go Blue! I have an older brother and he is a die hard Laker fan and Dodger fan so I went to tons of games!
The most interesting compliment I ever got from a stranger is: “You have a small face/head, it’s perfect.” Sounds odd, but small faces are better than HUGE ones, right?
The most exciting thing I did today was: Make my own DIY high-waisted shorts, I also made a video and it will be on my YouTube channel soon!
My secret weapon: My Kung-fu kick and Ninja stars! Just kidding — I don’t carry weapons or fight. So maybe I’ll say my nails when they are just done?
If I were to go that way, my lesbian lover would be: Oprah, she’s amazing! I’d be set for LIFE! Haha. Okay but for sexiness I’d go for Kim Kardashian, she’s sooo beautiful! But then she’d be the prettier one! Ugh!
Song I am most likely to play turned up to 11: Carly Rae Jepson, “Call Me Maybe.” It’s just so catchy! Haha.
My backup career if this whole “being pretty” thing doesn’t work out: Be a writer, I am a journalist and my Master’s degree is in Broadcast Journalism and I wouldn’t mind being behind the scenes.
Something my mother made me do that still traumatizes me today: Drink milk! I just really don’t like milk, and she’d always tell me that I’ll grow taller if I drink it and I just hated it! Maybe that’s why I’m 5’5″. I totally could’ve been like 5’8″! Should have drunk that milk.
Last time I ate way too much it was: Yogurt — I love Froyo and I always have room for dessert! It makes me super stuffed because I’ll get it after dinner!
The best thing I learned from an ex-boyfriend was: Never to go back to him!
The most rough-and-tumble outdoor activity I do is: Lay out by the pool. Most of the time I work out indoors at the gym that’s why!
A grown man should not: Lie, cheat, or be unfaithful. Why be in a grown-up relationship if you’re going to do all that? Ew! And they totally shouldn’t cry, but I know they do — I’ve seen some boys cry. Instead they should treat their girlfriends or spouses like queens! That’s what a grown king should do, right?
