Meet the world’s sexiest trucker! Glam blonde model claims people never believe 18-wheeler licence is hers

A blonde glamour model dubbed the world’s sexiest trucker claims people never believe her 18-wheeler licence is real.

When you think of the average truck driver, 26-year-old Blayze Williams is not what comes to mind as her long flaxen locks and stunning figure make her an unusual sight behind the wheel of a semi-trailer.

But the Australian model has made inroads in the trucking industry ever since she serendipitously found herself in the driver’s seat of a heavy goods vehicle seven years ago.

Now Blayze – who claims nightclub bouncers frequently don’t believe her truck licence is legitimate – is breaking down barriers in the heavily male-dominated industry by calling on more women to follow in her lane.

Blayze, who lives in Adelaide, said: “I’m always being told I’m ‘not your average truckie’.

“Some people, like nightclub bouncers, don’t always believe me.

“It just feels very cool driving a massive rig.

“I fell into the job. I used to clean trucks for work and one day they said we needed to get a license to move them around.

“When I used to see them pull up beside me I was scared, but I found I really enjoyed driving them.

“I’ve always like to be different, so being a female truck driver just came naturally. I’ve always dressed like a bit of a Barbie, but I feel like one of the boys.”

Blayze, who is also a current national champion horse-rider, bagged her first job as a trucker one year after first getting behind the wheel.

And despite not fitting the trucker stereotype, she quickly found she had a taste for the perks of life on the road.

Studies have shown women make up as few as three in every 100 Australian truck drivers.

But Blayze claims she hasn’t had much trouble driving through gender-based obstacles, and said it is actually a welcoming environment to work in.

There is currently a national shortage of truck drivers in Australia and Blayze said more women should consider the profession as a career.

She said: “There’s a lot more freedom to the highway than an office job, and no one is hovering over your desk.

“You do have to have a tough skin. A lot of the boys can be a bit crude, so it’s not the right place for you if you’re easily offended.

“But I actually haven’t come across many creeps in my career. On the whole, everyone has been pretty good.

“There is a little bit of heckling sometimes but it’s never too sleazy. If you’re normal, everyone else will be.

“More girls should give it a chance. The hours can be long, but there is great money to be made and it’s a lot of fun.”
