Jade Fairbrother, the plucky South African blonde bombshell has scooped the Playboy pool. Not only has she won the South African Playmate Of The Year award, by popular vote, she is also about to grace the covers of the March edition of Playboy, America. A strong follow up to her Rugby World Cup campaign – she was naked everywhere –, a photo shoot that won her the September cover of Playboy South Africa. A cover that would start the ball rolling.
At 25 year old things are moving fast for this Cape Town born model. She’s a hometown girl, born and raised in Cape Town. Jade is actually the inaugural ‘Playmate of The Year’ for South Africa, the South African Playboy magazine is the newest member of the Playboy family, only being a year old.
Winning the competition after months of rigorous fan voting and shameless self promotion, the prize was handed to Jade at a gala function held at the ZAR night club in Sandton, Johannesburg. The prize itself included a Playboy pendant, worth 50,000 Ran, and a trip to the the Playboy Mansion, to hang out with Hef for a week.
Describing herself as larger than life, she’s not a shy girl but she may just be a hopeless romantic. Her Playboy interview is very revealing with not only her sharp wit on show but also her drive and determination. Her early dreams of becoming a model were quickly thwarted by her short stature, not to be deterred she began swimsuit modelling.
She also reveals her Convent School education where she studied Criminology had absolutely no effect on her ability to pose naked for Playboy, she is a natural.
Many may remember her as the naked rugby fan. As part of the finals celebrations the September edition of South Africa’s Playboy put on a Rugby themed photo shoot. Jade obviously won many fans with her athletic theme and cheeky bits of impromptu nudity. The World Cup celebrating shoot was enough for Jade to win the Miss September 2011 Playmate title, and the cover of the magazine. From there she has gone on to win our hearts.
“I have always wanted to be a model but unfortunately my height, or lack thereof, has always been against me. As PLAYBOY does not have any restrictions in that regard, it was the perfect opportunity for me to follow my dream of being a photographic model.” Jade Fairbrother.
