How did "the math genius turned supermodel [become] the siren of South Beach?"
In a new cover feature for MAXIM, Sara Sampaio opens up about her rise to superstar status and how she's dealing with becoming a household name. Oh, and did we mention that she's submerged in water, wearing NOTHING AT ALL, as she grace's her first-ever U.S. magazine cover?
"Sara Sampaio is on fire—and that's just the way she planned it."
"When we go somewhere, my dad will start shouting my name very loudly," she tells MAXIM. "He'll yell, 'Oh, my God, it's Sara Sampaio!' My brother does the same. They like to break my balls."
