You’re in for it with Jessi Marie, a model and bartender from Houston, Texas. She’s petite – 5’3” – with sunny blonde hair, blue eyes and a rather generous bust. “I’m not quite what you’d expect,” she says. “I can be goofy, so people think I’m a ditsy blonde, but I have a brain, too. I majored in veterinary technology. And you wouldn't know it, but my first language is Spanish! ” Jessi has been modeling for a few years, but this is her first time posing for Playboy, and she couldn’t be more excited. “I’ve done a few trade shows, glamour modeling and a few commercials,” she says. “One of my friends – you know her as Elizabeth Marxs – referred me to Playboy, and now here I am. I’ve always wanted to be a Playboy model – when I’m in front of the camera, I feel like a totally different person!” When she’s not modeling, Jessi spends her nights behind the bar, slinging beers to local patrons – and in her spare time she goes out with her girlfriends, or catches a football game with the guys. “Being from Houston, the Texans are definitely my team,” she says. When it comes to dating, Jessi is sweet and unpretentious, the very definition of the girl next door – that is to say, every guy’s dream girl. “I’m not superficial,” she says. “Looks just aren’t that important – in fact, most of my ex-boyfriends have been a bit chubby. If you have a sense of humor and can hit all of my hot spots in bed, we'll get along.” Is it just us, or is getting a little hot in here? Remind us to thank Elizabeth, 'cause Jessi is a truly welcome addition.
