Once upon a time, Kristine Valentino wanted to join the military more than she wanted to model. In fact, when she first finished high school, she was dead-set on enlisting and touring the world. But, at the last minute, she decided to sign up for a Miss Asian America pageant instead and, well, the rest is history. These days, she showcases her good looks at car shows, she makes regular appearances in car mags like DSPORT, and she models every chance she can. So, it's a good thing she didn't end up in the military. She would have deprived us of all that she has to offer.
