A CABBIE dubbed the world’s hottest Uber driver says passengers are so dazzled by her beauty they don’t mind getting stuck in traffic with her.
Joyce Tadeo, 27, from Manila in the Philippines, had been working as a medical rep at a pharmaceutical company but became tired of the rat race.
The psychology graduate opted for a career change and began working as taxi driver eight months ago while studying dressmaking part-time.
Passengers were impressed by Joyce in the male-dominated industry and began sharing pictures of her driving which went viral.
She has now been dubbed the world’s hottest Uber driver and punters are desperate to hitch a ride with Joyce when they request a driver.
Joyce, who works 12 hours a day, said: “Passengers normally have a man who picks them up. When I arrive they’re quite shocked.
“I love the attention and the feeling of being liked. I’m happy to have pictures with passengers and I’m genuinely flattered by the compliments.
“There are a lot of guys who want my number but I just smile and laugh it off. I haven’t tried dating any because there are strict rules about drivers and passengers.”
Joyce said her male friend recommended the job to her and she gave it a try after being “impressed by his earnings”.
She said that chatting with her fares is a great way to pass time during her rides in bustling Manila.
Joyce, who works around the Bonifacio Global City district of Manila, says passengers are unable to book her – as the nature of the app means the nearest driver is usually allocated.
She added: “Yes, passengers do hope that I’m the one who picks them up. But I choose whoever is nearest and on my route.
“There have been a few awkward moments. I collected a couple of from a ‘motel’ and I couldn’t help wondering what they had been doing, I think they were up to no good.
“I have a lot of fun. And the conversation with passengers is always interesting. I can work when I want.”
Last month an Uber driver spoke of how he accidentally picked up a prostitute instead of his passenger - and their awkward encounter was captured on camera.
Daniel Moore, 28, initially thought he had collected Uber customer ‘Chelsea’ when he was hailed by a woman in Sydney.
But dash-cam footage reveals how he realised it was a case of mistaken identity after she asked: “Do you want to have sex?“
