Jodi Ann Paterson is not from around here. Born in Indonesia, Jodi was raised in Oregon, and owes her brown hair, brown eyes and dewy skin to Indonesian, Swiss and English heritage. An honor student in high school, she excelled at Oregon State, where she earned a bachelor’s degree in speech communications. “I don’t think I crawled out of my shell until college,” admits Jodi. “I flew to Los Angeles to visit my best friend. She picked me up from the airport and said, ‘The Playboy bus is in Century City – I want you to hop on it.’” A reluctant bunny at first, Miss Paterson was a total natural, and ended up our Miss October 1999. “I did streak my hair, but everything is natural,” she assures us. “I’m 100 percent me.” Naturally, Jodi went on to become our Playmate of the Year 2000, becoming the first-ever PMOY to hold a college degree. “I’m not the typical Playboy type,” she muses. “I never thought I would become Playmate of the Year!” With a small role in Dude, Where’s My Car? and a cameo in the video for Zebrahead’s “Playmate of the Year”, Jodi was well on her way to Hollywood fame, and she happily made pitstop to marry her husband, Formula One driver Michael Andretti. “When you stop learning, you stop living,” she says wisely. “Without a doubt, a woman’s mind makes her sexy!” Mind over matter, Miss Paterson makes our hearts patter, and we couldn’t ask for a sexier PMOY 2000.
