We’re all shook up for Christi Shake, our Playmate of the Month from May 2002. Her heritage reads like a backpacker’s itinerary – she’s Czech, German, Polish, Dutch and Swedish. She was blonde in her original pictorial, but recent years have Christi seeing red, a pleasant complement to her warm skin tone. Originally from Baltimore, Maryland, Christi started modeling when she was thirteen. Under her mother’s guidance, she enrolled the John Casablancas Modeling and Career Center in Michigan, and won her first pageant soon afterward. After graduating with honors at eighteen, Christi was featured in a Special Edition pictorial, which led to a Playmate test shoot in Chicago. The rest, of course, is history, she’s been in Los Angeles ever since. “I owe it all to my mother,” says Christi. “I’m over thirty, and she still calls me every day. She never lets me slack off.” Christi is one of our most popular Playmates, and has appeared in countless photo and video sets for Playboy. She always wanted to be an actress, but in recent years she’s become a reality TV star. She appeared on Playboy TV’s No Boys Allowed and The Girls Next Door, has been a guest on Howard Stern, and – most famously – competed for General Hospital star Antonio Sabato’s affections on VH1’s My Antonio. She also acted in the video for Kid Rock’s power ballad Only God Knows Why. You might see her on red carpet – she still does some modeling, and makes appearances at promotional events around Los Angeles – but for the most part, Christi is a single mom and spends her time with her son. She likes older men, and believes in the ideals of love, marriage and family – a tall order for most, but not for a girl like Christi Shake.
