Hef needs your help, Playboy fans!
It’s time for the 2010 Playmate Review, when we cast our eyes back over the 12 beautiful women who graced our magazine as Playmates of the Month in 2010. But now it’s time to get to know these women better, so you can vote for your favorite. Hef will weigh your input to help make the incredibly tough decision: Who will be crowned the 2011 Playmate of the Year in May?
In June 1960, Hef named Mississippi-born, Los Angeles-bred legal secretary Ellen Stratton the first Playmate of the Year. Since then, 50 more Playmates have worn the crown, including Patti McGuire, Shannon Tweed, Anna Nicole Smith, Jenny McCarthy and our reigning Playmate of the Year, Hope Dworaczyk.
This year, Playboy.com is giving fans the opportunity to get up close and personal with all 12 of our gorgeous Playmates. We’ve aggregated the Playmates’ Twitter feeds on the home page so you can keep track of their latest adventures and interact with them via your own Twitter account (if you don’t have one, sign up now!). Each Playmate also has her individual Twitter feed on her personal page; regularly, we will be posting Playmate home video dispatches giving fans a glimpse into their day-to-day lives.
So meet the girls and cast your vote (use the banner in the upper right corner of this page). You can only vote once a day–no ballot stuffing! Come back daily to see the Playmates’ latest escapades.
Of course, we couldn’t do this without the cooperation and assistance of our 12 amazing Playmates. Thanks to Francesca, Ashley, Shanna, Katie, Amy, Kyra, Heather, Claire, Jaime, Kassie, Olivia and Shera for letting us have a window into their world, leading up to Hef’s big announcement in May of the 2011 Playmate of the Year.
We want Playboy fans to see what we already know: In her own unique way, each one of these 12 Playmates really does embody Hef’s ideal of the approachable girl next door.
