Raquel Pomplun received Playboy’s ultimate honor on Thursday when Playboy founder Hugh Hefner named her the 2013 Playboy Playmate of the Year at a ceremony at the Playboy Mansion in Los Angeles. Pomplun, 25, became the first Mexican American to be awarded the title. Pomplun got her start on the BlackBelt TV network, where she is a fight jock.
Initially named Playboy’s Miss April 2012, Pomplun received $100,000 in prize money and a one-year lease on 2014 Jaguar F-TYPE as part of her title. And, all you got the last time you took off your clothes was naked.
“I can’t begin to describe how excited I am to receive this honor and be given the opportunity to represent Playboy as its first Mexican American Playmate of the Year,” Pomplun said.
“Playboy has taught me a side of myself I didn’t know before. It’s been a year of wonderful surprises!”
Pomplun has totally had a lot of fun in the past year. In the video below, Pomplun admits to once having had sex in the trunk of a Ford Fusion. That’s our kind of interview subject. The June 2013 issue of Playboy featuring Raquel Pomplun as Playmate of the Year will be on newsstands and at i.playboy.com soon.
