Candice Swanepoel spent most of her Memorial Day weekend in a black bikini, lounging poolside in Miami with boyfriend Hermann Nicoli and hitting Miami beach in a skimpy yellow two-piece that revealed quite a bit of her backside. Some might say she 'showed off her assets.'

Believe it or not, the sexy 24-year-old Victoria's Secret model grew up on a beef and dairy farm in South Africa before flaunting her good looks around the world.

"It was such a pure, beautiful way to grow up," she told British GQ magazine. "I used to wear overalls. And big boots, and poke cow poo, and helped the cows give birth. It was a really amazing playground."

Candice credits her success on taking a big chance.

"I put all my eggs in one basket when I left South Africa. I put my head down and worked my ass off," she said. "And look where it got me."
