Playmate Facts

Playmates receive $25,000 and the Playmate of the Year earns an additional $100,000 and prizes such as a new car.

Two women have appeared as the Playmate for three different months: Marilyn Waltz and Janet Pilgrim.
Two others have appeared as Playmate twice: Margie Harrison and Marguerite Empey.

It is said that Miss December 1989 Petra Verkaik is the most published woman in Playboy history.
She has been featured in Special Editions over a 15 year span and is the only Playmate with a Model of the Year title.

Miss January 1958 Elizabeth Ann Roberts was the youngest-ever Playmate, born August 4, 1941.
It would be extremely unlikely (and currently illegal) for anyone to ever beat that record.

Delaware, South Dakota and Vermont have not yet had a Playmate born within their borders.

For more facts, check out the Playboy Timeline on the Playmates of the Month page.

The Playmate Relatives page lists Playmates with relatives who have also posed for Playboy.
