Job: Server, Twist
Relationship Status: Has a boyfriend
Juliette knows how to work a room — even one as fast-paced as Twist at Phipps, where she serves up "mysterious sex appeal" and a "refreshing sense of humor," according to Lust List nominators. Though she grew up in Spartanburg, S.C.'s ultraconservative pro-gun/anti-abortion culture, this blond belle credits much of her liberalization to Agnes Scott College, where she earned a bachelor's in English/creative writing last year. For her senior student project, the aspiring writer profiled members of Atlanta's homeless population in an attempt to paint "dehumanized people in a human light." After shedding tears at the first inauguration of Barack Obama, Juliette even considered pursuing a career as the "brains behind political campaigns," she says. "I feel like I'm not corrupt enough for that, though." — Rodney Carmichael
What do you like best about your job?
The different kinds of people that come in. Like, Shaq will come in on a Friday night. And then you have the families that will come in on a Saturday morning. It's just a wide variety of people. I like being around that — diverse people.
What's your standard drink?
I usually start off with Champagne, and then I'll go to, like, Jack and ginger.
What band were you obsessed with when you were 14?
Probably Panic at the Disco, like every other 14-year-old girl at the time.
What's your guiltiest pleasure?
Queso. There's this place in Decatur called Los Loros; they have the best queso ever. You have to add the jalapeños, though.
What's your least favorite household chore?
The bathroom. Scrubbing the toilet, scrubbing the shower. Hate that.
Describe your relationship to exercise.
If you count working double-shifts as exercise, that's my relationship to exercise. If I feel tired one day I might go for a run just to get a boost, but I don't exercise really.
What's the last thing that made you cry?
I did tear up at one of the Super Bowl commercials. The one about the soldier coming home, the Budweiser one.
What's the last good book you read?
Another Bullshit Night in Suck City by Nick Flynn.
What do you wish someone would hurry up and invent?
I have no idea.
What's the lamest pickup line anyone's used on you?
I get it every single day. My name's Juliette and it's just like, "Can I be your Romeo?" Never heard that one before, right. [Laughs]
What movie would you most like to live in?
Probably an era film like The Curious Case of Benjamin Button or [Divine Secrets] of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood.
What's the first album you bought with your own money?
Kenny Chesney's album back in like '99, [with the song] "She Thinks My Tractor's Sexy."
What's the best way for a customer to hit on you?
Not to hit on me. Maybe buy me a shot. Depends on the night.
Who would play you in the movie of your life?
I guess Jennifer Lawrence 'cause she's goofy, and I consider myself a goofy person. She'd fit the bill.
What's the one thing you most hope to accomplish this year?
I have two things: The first is to travel more, and the second is to get organized and find my peace of my mind.
What's your least favorite thing about Atlanta?
I would have to say where I work in Buckhead, that area, everybody thinks they're somebody special and important — and the sense of entitlement that goes along with that. I've been to many cities and Atlanta is probably by far the worse with that. And the traffic.
Is there a drawback to being attractive?
I don't know how to answer that. I wouldn't think so? I will say in high school a lot of girls didn't like me and I didn't know why, so I just hung out with the guys a lot.
And that probably made them even madder.
I guess. I don't know. [Laughs]
Name one thing you've stolen.
A Mr. Goodbar when I was 5 from Bi-Lo.
Who's the most important person in your life?
I have so many important people in my life. I would probably have to say my parents. My dad's been sick for 12 years and my mom's always been the backbone, pushing through. His strength and her strength together are really admirable. And I hope that I have a relationship like that one day.
What's your sexy-time soundtrack?
Red Hot Chili Peppers. Definitely.
Have you ever been dumped? If so, what was the reason?
I have been dumped. It was one of my first relationships and he said I took it too serious, too fast. Yeah, 16-year-old's relationships.
What's your pettiest relationship deal-breaker?
The way someone smells I guess. Your pheromones don't match with everybody. I know that sounds so silly, but if you smell weird it's a deal-breaker.
What would you order for your last meal?
I would order an 8-ounce filet, medium rare, with mashed potatoes and a glass of Champagne.
How much would you charge to murder a stranger?
I have no idea. $5 million. I would probably not murder a stranger, though. But if I absolutely had to.
How do you handle rejection?
I guess I don't take it well. I don't know. I'm impatient and impulsive and both of those things are not good when rejected.
With whom would you like to play Truth or Dare?
Amy Poehler and Barack Obama.
At the same time?
Yeah, why not? Same time.
What did your parents want you to do with your life?
My mother was like, "Do whatever makes you happy." But my dad wanted me to be a country music star, cause I grew up singing all the time. But I don't think that's going to happen.
Have you ever stalked someone on social media?
I think everybody stalks everyone on social media. It's, like, a thing.
How often do you talk to your mother?
Probably twice a month.
What's your preferred footwear?
Flats or flip-flops.
What's the most romantic place in Atlanta?
What's your wackiest piece of personal trivia?
This is embarrassing. I cut my pointer finger on an icing machine the day that my [former] boyfriend came to visit me from Austin. And instead of spending time with each other we spent the entire night in the emergency room and they almost had to cut off my finger.
What's your weirdest recurring dream?
The only dreams that I remember are work-related dreams, like, when I'm in the weeds and I have the whole restaurant by myself. It's a really fast-paced environment.
What personal attribute are you a sucker for?
Sense of humor. You've gotta be funny.
Where would you go on a bucket list vacation?
I would probably backpack through the south of France and Italy.
Not counting rent or bills, where does most of your disposable income go?
Food. It's amazing how much I spend on food every month.
What's your life's ambition/grandest dream?
I have three that go together: I want to make somebody's life better or easier, no matter how small or large that may be. I want to be relatively successful — not necessarily monetarily but [enough] to go to sleep at night with peace. And I want to raise kids.
If you had to spend a million dollars in one afternoon, what would you do?
I would book vacations for the next 10 years, and then buy a couple pairs of shoes and a couple bottles of Champagne.
Have you ever stolen a friend's boyfriend?
What's your own character flaw you'd most like to fix?
I need to have more patience. Patience is a virtue and I have not accomplished that yet.
Why do you think someone nominated you for the Lust List?
I don't have any idea. I guess when I go to work I carry myself in a certain way. My mom always told me, "If you're scrubbing floors, get the corners, too." Do your best, show your personality, smile. So I guess that's lusty.
