Bucket Babe: Leigh Thompson

Hard to believe we're nearing the end of another decade, 2019 may not have been everyone's cup of tea but many look at the good that did come from it. That's what we like to do here at the blog, look at the good instead of dwelling on the bad. Also what better way to see the year out than reading up on another one of South Africa's beauty's. Today's featured model hails close to home, actually she is from home, born and bred right here on the East Coast. She believes life is better in a bikini, juggles a full time job, being a mom and every now and then likes to be in front of a camera. It's going to be a hot summer and we found out that there is more to her than meets the eye...

Leigh Thompson


Born in Durban, she's not only a freelance model, recruitment specialist and previous Monster Energy girl, it seems she's sought after in just about everything entertainment industry related. But what is her recipe for success? We managed to ask this South African Beauty a few mouth-watering questions in our Q&A session with her. 




1. Hot girls and hot cars go hand in hand, what ride would you like to  see yourself in?
  • Hmm, I had to think about this one. I've had my eye on the Audi TT RS and the Q2 this year.
2. What sandwich are you most likely to make for me? and will it be toasted or plain?
  • Bacon, avo and feta on a whole wheat roll. Simple, classic and delicious. 
3. Everyone loves popcorn (well I think they do) what is your topping/ sprinkle of choice?
  • Butter flavouring is good, especially the kind of flavoured salt you find at the movies.
4. Dream cover shoot?
  • Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition.
5. If given a choice, full time model or full time executive, what would you choose?
  • As much as I enjoy the feeling of progress and accomplishment being a business woman has brought, full time modelling would be so much fun because its my passion.  
6. Growing up you must have had someone you aspired to be, so who is your role model?
  • I grew up loving running, sports, fashion and style and of course modeling and in terms of that, I've always looked up to Giselle Bunchen and Alessandra Ambrosio and their work. Iconic supermodels in their own right. In the past few years the awareness they have both been involved in creating and what they each stand for respectively in terms of their lifestyle choices is inspirational and has resonated with me even more. One of my ultimate role  models would be without a doubt my mom who taught me to be kind and humble and always helpful to those around me and my father, who taught me the importance of education, hard work and discipline in reaching my goals. Diana Villas Boas is burning up the internet and I admire her dedication to exercise, she has to have one of the best bodies on the planet..
7. Anyone holding that hand yet? or is it available?
  • What do you mean yet? I'm in my 30s LOL!
8. Obviously being a female you would love fashion. Favourite label/ designer?
  • I don't have one favourite label that comes to mind. I experiment with fashion and different designers as I continue to learn more about myself, what truly matters to me and what makes me happiest in this journey called life, fashion has become even more of a means of self expression. It will always be a form of art. Fashion also means fun to me and I have so much appreciation for beautiful designed items. I still tend to find items i like at YDE (since 2001). 
9. What type of music gets your booty shaking?
  • Post Malone lately but Frank Sinatra always brings a smile.
10. Which city is your dream party destination?
  • As long as my best friends are there partying, that's what really matters to me.
