PhotosIt's Always Sunny on Model Rachel Zimmerman's Instagram Feed
See for yourself.
We spend a lot of time on Instagram (no, really—a lot of time), and when we're not living vicariously through our favorite FOMO-inducing accounts, we're checking on some particularly talented users. So when our GQ castings team finds a ’grammer worth shouting out, we think it's our duty to share him or her with you, dear followers.
Rachel Zimmerman loves to travel. The self-described "army brat" grew up bouncing around from place-to-place—just like she does today in her day job. When she isn't posing on one of the world's most gorgeous beaches, making friends with wild animals on exotic locales, or just hanging out on her Manhattan fire escape, Zimmerman is busy hitting the slopes on her snowboard. Maybe it's the life of travel that makes her such a force of easy-going energy. Either that, or her favorite expression: fck it. So if you're looking for a way find your own* chill. Take a peek at Ms. Zimmerman right here, and then head over to Instagram and give her one big follow.
Where are you right now?
I am sprawled out on my couch right now in NYC, watching Family Guy, and answering these questions.
Where did you grow up?
I grew up in Germany. I was an army brat so we moved a lot.
If you weren’t a model, what career would you pursue?
If I was not a model I would probably be doing something that has to do with travel. What that would be I have no idea haha. Or something with food because I am a big foodie.
What is your mantra? (If you don't have one, make one up. We'll wait.) …
F&@k it lol.
What makes you feel sexy?
Waking up with bed head, no makeup, in a T-shirt and boy shorts.
Where have you never been but want to go?
I really want to go to the Mauritius Islands! The beaches there look amazing and they have some of the best deep sea fishing in the world.
Do you read the comments?
I love reading the comments! It always makes me giggle to see how people see or portray me through Instagram or any type of social media.
What is the craziest thing you’ve done on a shoot?
One of the craziest things that has happened on a shoot? Hmmm… there are so many. But recently I went down to Costa Rica for a shoot and I ended up at a rodeo in the pit with the bull and the riders which was definitely interesting and nerve racking.
How do you spend your time off?
I love being outdoors. I love fishing and playing sports like volleyball and soccer. If it’s winter, I will be up in the mountains snowboarding every chance I get. I also love traveling, so on my time off I try to go somewhere new and explore a little.
Where is your favorite place to go snowboarding?
I love anywhere there is good powder, good tree lines and I love snowboarding with my friends. Colorado is definitely one of my favorite places though. Breckenridge and Keystone will always have a place in my heart!
What is your most prized possession?
My passport !!!!
