Ontario’s own 22-year-old Jayde Nicole has been named as Playboy’s 2008 Playmate of the Year. Originally gracing the pages of the seminal men’s magazine as Miss January 2007, the sweet brunette will appear in the June issue of Playboy and earns $100,000 and a new car.
Jayde is originally from Port Perry, and already has her own modeling agency which she started in 2005. She has a fitness book coming out soon, a reality show, and was on the cover of Today’s Bride and American Curves magazines.
She has also been active supporting charities, the biggest, as she says on MySpace, being the “Bikini Charity Carwash for the RED Campaign to fight AIDS in Africa.”
The honour of Playmate of the Year is distinctive for Jayde in another way: it has been 26 years since the last Canadian model held the title. Shannon Tweed was the last Canadian to claim the title in 1982.
