Meet Nikki Leigh, our Playmate of the Month for May 2012. A blue-eyed blonde from Cypress, California, she recently earned a Bachelor’s degree in sociology, and you’d better believe that she’s proud of her achievement. “I’m very smart,” she says matter-of-factly. “I just graduated from Cal State Fullerton, and I’m a member of the Golden Key Honors Society.” She’s well-traveled, too – she’s been to Tokyo and Beijing, and she spent a semester abroad in Italy. She’s doing big things, but like most Playmates, Nikki started small. “I’m from a little suburb in Orange County, California,” she says. “People there are kind, and I believe in random acts of kindness.” She was a cheerleader and honor student in high school, and she worked hard to get where she is today. “I’ve wanted to be a Playboy model since I was 13 years old,” she says. “It’s a dream come true.” You wouldn’t know it, but this is Nikki’s first modeling gig. She sent a picture to a casting director on a referral from a friend, and we tested her specifically for Playmate – and with her good looks and book smarts, she makes a great ambassador for the Playboy brand. She’s single and wouldn’t have it any other way – her plate is full with her Playmate duties. “I can be me 24/7”, she says. “But I like guys who are kind and respectful of others.” When she’s not working, she’d rather spend free time with her friends – talking, shopping or lounging by the pool with her fellow Playmates. She loves to eat, and has the chef at the Mansion on speed dial. “Some girls will say that they can out-drink you, but I’ll out-eat you,” she says, laughing. “Steaks, sushi, pasta, cheesecake…you name it, I’ll eat it.” Nikki divides her time between her house in Los Angeles and the Mansion, where she hangs out with all of her friends and fellow Playmates.
