Kate Stoltzfus, ‘Breaking Amish’ Star, Poses In Maxim Shoot
Kate Stolzfus, star of Breaking Amish, has traded in her conservative Amish garb for short shorts and tight tanktops in her recent photo shoot with Maxim magazine.
Stolzfus, who starred on the first two season’s of TLC’s Breaking Amish, is now an aspiring model looking to make it big in New York City’s fashion industry. The 22-year-old Lancaster, Penn., transplant is perfectly at ease in front of a camera, taking to the profession like a natural.
"Before I had even signed a contract with a modeling agency, I did a test shoot to see if I could photograph well, and the first outfit they put me in was a bathing suit!” she told Maxim. “I have to admit it was a little intimidating, but now I enjoy doing it."
In the Amish community Stoltzfus left behind, there weren’t any mega-gyms or yoga studios down the block to keep in shape. Yet, Stolzfus insists her fit figure is the norm rather than the exception when it comes to Amish-born women. "There are definitely a lot of Amish women who have great bodies, because they work hard," she revealed. "They also eat really healthy, since they grow their own food. That’s one big thing I miss about home, being able to garden and take care of plants."
When asked about her love live, Stolzfus said, “A guy would have to prove himself to me before I’d bake him something special, like my peanut butter blossoms. Most of the time I just make them for my roommates and me.”
Unlike Stolzfus, who's remained single following the filming of Breaking Amish, her costars Rebecca and Abe are married and dealing with some tense family drama. On The Shunning Truth next Sunday, Abe will come to blows with his brother over his marriage with Rebecca. Stolzfus will also appear on the special, shutting down rumors about her sexuality.
Breaking Amish: LA, which will feature a new cast of Amish kids, will premiere on TLC Sunday, July 21.
