**Playmate Facts**

Playmates receive $25,000 and the Playmate of the Year earns an additional $100,000 and prizes such as a new car.

Two women have appeared as the Playmate for three different months: [[Marilyn Waltz]] and [[Janet Pilgrim]].
Two others have appeared as Playmate twice: [[Margie Harrison]] and [[Marguerite Empey]].

It is said that Miss December 1989 [[Petra Verkaik]] is the most published woman in Playboy history.
She has been featured in Special Editions over a 15 year span and is the only Playmate with a Model of the Year title.

Miss January 1958 [[Elizabeth Ann Roberts]] was the youngest-ever Playmate, born August 4, 1941.
It would be extremely unlikely (and currently illegal) for anyone to ever beat that record.

Delaware, South Dakota and Vermont have not yet had a Playmate born within their borders.

For more facts, check out the [[CC Playmates of the Month|Playboy Timeline]] on the Playmates of the Month page.

The [[Playmate Relatives]] page lists Playmates with relatives who have also posed for Playboy.
