How Natasha Yi Got Into the Biz

She was discovered her senior year living in Denver, Colorado, while munching on some french fries at McDonalds. The scout was a playboy scout and asked Natasha to go an audition. She went and was shocked when asked to remove her clothes for the poses. I guess having grown up in a conservative Korean household, there were no Playboy magazines around. She actually says she had no idea Playboy featured nude women. She became shy and left the shoot. Playboy was persistent and asked her to come back just to observe a shoot with playboy bigshot photographer Bo Hitchcock. Natasha went to the shoot and liked the "Playboy's Natural Beauties" theme and appreciated Bo's professionalism and ended up posing. This was the start of Natasha's amazing career.

Why I Love Natasha Yi

Besides the fact that she's gorgeous I do respect her as a woman and as an entertainer:

* She grew up in a somewhat conservative Korean household like myself and still pursued her dreams. (Not so conservative!)

* She was the first ever Asian American to be a "Barker Beauty" on the show The Price is Right. Who ever said Asian women can't present showcases?

* She's been in music videos for Panic at the Disco and Janelle Monae. (I adore Janelle Monae!)

* She has her own custom motorcycle.

* She is a character in videogames such as SRS.

* She has her own comic series based upon her life as a model.

      Playboy boasts that their Natural Beauties Edition features all natural women. So they insist on no enhancements, surgery etc! So... we have a right to be green with envy because they're real!

      She's very pretty. I was reading your article and I was wondering what you meant by "Playboy's Natural Beauties", I feel shallow asking but are those boobs natural not silicon? If so, she's one lucky chick.
