Oregon State University grad Sara Jean Underwood went from our Girls of the Pac 10 cover to Miss July 2006, and, now, Playmate of the Year. Here are a few fun facts about the new PMOY.
Underwood (born March 26th 1984) was the cover model for the October 2005 issue of Playboy. She has appeared as Playmate of the Month for July 2006 and 2007 Playmate of the Year in the June 2007 issue of the men's magazine.
She appeared on the cover of the October 2005 issue holding a football with nothing but bodypaint on her to simulate her wearing a jersey similar in design to the ones worn by the OSU Beavers football team with matching bikini briefs. She also appeared in the Girls of Pac 10 pictorial in the same issue.
Sara also appeared in episode #2 of E! reality television series, The Girls Next Door as a playmate hopeful having her test shoot taken at Playboy Studio West. She was given the title of Miss July 2006. She has since appeared in several more episodes, attending events at the Playboy mansion and hanging out with the girls.
She appeared as a pirate wench in Epic Movie, along with Playmates Qiana Chase, Irina Voronina and Jillian Grace.
Here are a few fun facts about the new PMOY:
Friday Night Lights: "I grew up in Scappoose, Oregon, which is known for having a very good high school football team. The whole town, population 4000, is centered around the football team."
Playmate Pastoral: "Growing up, we raised our own pigs and cows to eat. I grew up riding horses and we had cats and dogs and had a large blueberry farm. It has a big old barn and pastures."
She Has Supportive Parents: "We shot most of my Playmate Pictorial at my parent's farm. We had an amazing time and my parents got along with the crew. Everything was more elaborate, it was exciting and it made me feel that much more special."
Great Outdoors: "At my parent's house, I spend days nude all the time. We live in the middle of nowhere and there's not a neighbor in sight. I'm a lot more comfortable with myself nude now. Clothing seems like a burden."
Extreme Team: "I feel like I've tried everything. Oregon has these beautiful dunes, so we go four wheeling during the day and roast hot dogs at night. I've taken surfing classes and tried skydiving, which is unexplainably amazing. If I haven't tried it, then I would like to try it."
Not Team (Sports) Player: "I was never a jock and never was involved in team sports. I grew up in the country, so I've always been an individual. Team sports always made me nervous. I didn't like the idea that everything I did might let down someone else."
Garth Brooks Fan Club President: "I think he's the sexiest man alive and a great entertainer. My obsession has just grown. My absolute favorite song is "The Dance." A lot of people play it at funerals, but I think it's a song to live by, a song about not regretting anything. It's so inspirational and it makes me cry almost every time. I never did see Garth do the Chris Gaines thing. Glad I didn't, since I heard a lot of backlash about it."
Did She Mention She Likes Garth Brooks?: "I feel like I'm attracted to the Garth Brooks type. I want a guy who looks like a guy, just an everyday type, not someone modeling in a magazine."
Bar Exam: "I'm not much of a drinker. If I could drink anything, I'd order a Bud Light, but people think I'm weird doing that at a classy bar. If a guy wanted to buy me a drink, I'd ask for a vodka cranberry."
Best Playboy Moment: "My favorite moment was Hef's 80th birthday party. Three 6 Mafia performed, Bridget popped out of the cake and everyone sang "Happy Birthday" to Hef. He was smiling and tearing up, and I realized what an incredible moment in history I was witnessing. It was the most amazing moment."
