Playboy revealed its 2016 Playmate of the Year is none other than the beautiful Eugena Washington. The former America’s Next Top Model contestant is only the third black woman to snag this honor.
The stunning covergirl chopped it up with Us Weekly in a Facebook Live interview about how she discovered the news.“I got tricked! Two execs from Playboy called me and said, ’Eugena, we need you for a casting in the studio, it’s very important. Be on time.’They had this chair sitting in the middle of the room for me and they said, ‘I need to talk to you’ and I was thinking, ‘I’m in trouble!’ And then they told me I was Playmate of the Year! It was so exciting.”
Aside from the recognition she’s garnered from her ANTM appearance, Eugena’s now dipping her toe in the acting pool with a recurring role on The Bold and the Beautiful as well as in the film The Perfect Match. The 31-year-old model and actress was previously honored as Playmate of the Month in December 2015.
Congrats to Eugena!
