Find out whether your crush made the cut and don't miss our celebration of the most underappreciated gods and goddesses of Atlanta's service industry.
Not only does Tami remind us of a Botticelli, she also has a sharp wit to counter her sweet shell. Her food blog, Running With Tweezers in addition to playing off Augusten Burroughs biting childhood memoir also alludes to the primary tool of her trade: a 14-inch pair of tweezers she uses to meticulously style some of the citys prettiest food. (Shes pictured here at Dogwood.) A former celebrity stylist, Tami would rather deal with dishes than divas. It always fits, she says of food styling. Its always on time. And it doesnt give you any attitude. Its my dream job.

France. I was there for three and a half months. I lived in a little country town outside of Paris.

My 50s vintage leopard coat that I bought at Stefans about 12 years ago.
What would you do with $100,000?
I'd go on a foodie adventure to Thailand, Vietnam and Cambodia.
What three foods are part of your regular diet?
Goat cheese, bread and wine. Its pretty much the diet of champions.
Whats the worst thing someone can do on a date?
I had a date who knocked his wine glass over and it rolled across the table and all the wine came pouring into my lap. And he just sat there.
Whats your favorite karaoke song?
Ive only been to karaoke one time. It was on Christmas Eve. I did 99 Problems by Jay-Z.
Whats your worst vice?
Gluttony. Its a deadly sin.

I spent $850 for a pair of Prada ankle boots at Nieman Marcus. I cut up my Nieman Marcus card after that.
What would your parents think of you being on Lust List?
Theyre both deceased. But my parents would be totally supportive of it. My mom was one of the original bunnies who worked in the Playboy Club in Chicago, as a cocktail bunny. My mother would have been like, Sit up straight and arch your back.
Whats the most attractive feature of the opposite sex?
Im a sucker for big noses. Big noses, dark hair and tattoos en masse.
