Check out what Billy has to say when we peak into his life and love of Baskit…
Baskit How old are you Billy?
Billy I just turned 27 in July...
Baskit What do you do for a living (aside from modeling)? What did you want to be when you were a kid?
Billy Currently I am a singer/songwriter. (Check out Billy Dortch on iTunes or www.billydortch.com) and for money I manage and bartend at a popular bar in West Hollywood. As a child I wanted to own a farm with my brother and sister…. now the bar at times feels like a barn with farm animals.
Baskit You have some body art - can you give us a description of it and what it means to you?
Billy I have 10 tattoos. They all are special and have meaning to my life. I have my last name on my arm, a bird with a breast cancer ribbon for my mom (she is a survivor, love ya mom!) I also have the title to my first music single "breathe" on my neck. The music video for the song was actually nominated for video of the year on LOGO in 2009.
Baskit What's the best way to spend a day off? Extra hours at the gym? On the beach? Hiking?
Billy I love to hike. I try to go on a different hike each weekend! I also enjoy camping and am currently restoring an old camper trailer and it's almost ready to take to the road!
Baskit Were you familiar with Baskit before the model search and what drew you to it?
Billy Yes, I actually did a shoot a few months before and by chance I was wearing Baskit underwear. I entered a picture from that shoot to the competition.
Baskit Is there something thing you aren't doing that you wish you were? A sport/skill you were never good at or just haven’t gotten around to learning yet?
Billy I actually want to learn trapeze and run away with the circus!
Baskit What is the best advice anyone has ever given you?
Billy Not sure if it’s advice, but I have always had unconditional love form my family.
Baskit On a random Saturday, what are you likely to be wearing?
Billy Swim shorts in my blow up kiddy pool ala Homer Simpson.
Baskit If you had a week on a beach and could only take three things with you what would they be (aside from clothes and money?)
Billy My boyfriend, an iPod with speakers, and a bottle of wine.
Baskit Any other interest tid-bits or pieces of information you'd want to share with the readers? Something nobody knows about you?
Billy I love the P90x workout and I've never had a gym membership! Plus, as I write this, I am currently on a ship in the middle of a sixty-six day exploration of the Mediterranean Sea!
