Jade Motorsports goes from the big screen with 2 Fast 2 Furious, to the screen at home with the new video game Juiced 2:HIN for your favorite gaming console. The game is packed full of racing, cars, and lovely models!
While on the JADE 10 tour, we had the chance to meet Miss HIN DC, Corissa Furr. You’ll be able to find this blue-eyed beauty in the game alongside Brian’s 350Z, Russ’ widebody NSX, and Uncle Phil’s Beetle turbo.

Juiced 2:HIN Video Game for XBOX 360, PS3
So we thought, why not put two features in the game together, into one special feature. So here’s an exclusive interview with a Juiced 2:HIN model, who shot with our very own Nissan 350Z.
JADE: HI, please take a moment and introduce yourself.
CF: My name is Corissa Furr. I consider myself to be pretty down to earth. I like to have a good time…but I work hard, and I work a lot. But they say you have to work for what you want in life…so that’s all I’m doing ).
JADE: Tell us how did you get into modeling?
CF: My friend at the time was modeling, and I went with her to a shoot. From there, I started shooting and started a portfolio. Then…started getting jobs!
JADE: What is your opinion on this whole modeling thing?
CF: I absolutely love it. I mean, sometimes it’s a lot to take in…the constant traveling and being away. But when it’s all said and done, it’s totally worth all of it. I have had so many great opportunities along the way so far. I’ve had the pleasure of meeting so many wonderful people. And the fans and spectators make it all worth it!!
JADE: How have things changed since you won the title of Miss HIN DC 2007?
CF: Things have been pretty busy since I won Miss HIN DC. I became an official tour model for all the HIN and Nightshift events. Just a few highlights from the road so far: HIN TV Interviews with Sean Kingston, Huey, & Tera Patrick; hosting the Juiced 2 Model Search at HIN Charlotte and lots more shoots and interviews!!
JADE: It is exciting to know that you’ll be in the Juiced 2 : HIN video game, how about yourself, do you have any ‘game’? Or do you not like to play games?
CF: I’m so excited to be featured in the Juiced 2 HIN video game! It’s surreal. Actually being able to play the game at the events, and see myself on the screen is pretty cool. I’m impressed with how well the game actually captures the atmosphere of Hot Import Nights, and the lifestyles of the people who actually do it for real. Can’t wait to have my copy! Oh, and in reference to the comment about ‘game’…in a different context…to answer the question “do I have game”…what do YOU think? Haha…
JADE: In Juiced 2, the game gives you the opportunity to design your ride. What car would you modify and build? Let me guess, the car would look pretty with flowers and stars? Right???
CF: No, it wouldn’t have flowers and stars, but I’m glad you think you’re funny! Don’t make me come over and play you, I’d feel bad for embarrassing you!! Haha, but anyway, I would probably go for the Euros…but there are also Exotics too. I loooove Ferraris. I dunno…hopefully when I get good enough at the game, I can have a few different cars. )
JADE: You have the appearance of the sweet girl next door, but I think you are quite argumentative and feisty… or maybe you don’t like me… hehehehe… What misconception do most people have of you that do not know you?
CF: I think the biggest misconception is the “stereotypical model” profile. Because I’m a model, they automatically think I possess the characteristics of most models. Self centered…or snobby…or that I may think I’m better than someone. But I often get comments in reference to the fact that people don’t expect me to be so…normal. Just because I pose in front of a camera, it doesn’t make me any different from the person I was before.
JADE: Aside from working hard, what do you like to do with your friends for fun?
CF: I like to just relax, and have a good time with my friends. We’ll usually just hang out at someone’s house, or go to a small bar in town. We don’t do anything too extravagant, unless it’s a special occasion. But we’re a pretty tightly knit group. And I don’t have too many opportunities to spend time with all of them, so I make the most of it when I can.
JADE: It’s almost certain that many guys are chasing after you, but have you ever gone out of your way to pick up a guy?
CF: I actually have gone out of my way to snag a guy. I mean, if I really want something…I’m not stopping until I get it! And like I said earlier, you have to work for the things you want, right?? So…there’s nothing wrong with a “girl chasing boy” scenario.
JADE: What are your plans for the future besides modeling?
CF: Plans for the future…ppphhssshhh! I have a hard enough time planning tomorrow! Haha. In all seriousness…I do plan to continue pursuing modeling, and possibly acting. I’ll probably be moving out of the state sometime in the next couple of years…not sure where yet. I’d like to go back to school, too. I want to study Psychology. We’ll see where my path leads me… )
JADE: Work hard, get what you want, success! Any advice for upcoming girls?
CF: Don’t forget who you are and where you came from. There’s a lot of pressure in the industry, from all different directions, to do all sorts of different things. Don’t lose sight of what you want for yourself. Don’t let someone else tell you what you should want, or what would be best for you.
JADE: Last words?
CF: Well, thanks to Jade for having me, of course!! Thanks to Julius and Chad, especially! It was a fun shoot!! Thanks to everyone who has always supported me…and helped me along the way. Thanks to all my family and friends for always being there for me. Be sure to keep showing your love and support!! MUCH LOVE!!!!
