AJ Alexander was Playboy’s Miss May 2008. AJ is from Evansville, Indiana, less than 500 miles from The Brickyard, where another A.J. – driver A.J. Foyt – won the Indy 500.
“I’m a girly girl, but I’m a bit of a tomboy, too,” she told Playboy. One of Miss May 2008’s happiest memories is of spending time at her father’s go-kart track, racing go-karts or playing Pole Position, her video game of choice, at the arcade. For her pictorial she posed with a Playboy-sponsored Nissan 350GT racecar.
AJ also enjoys racy adventures of a different sort. “I’m not as innocent as I look,” she said with a mischievous grin. She confessed an affinity for ripped abs – and eating fruit off of them. “I do love pineapple,” she said, laughing. “Everyone reads me as this sweet, shy goody-goody. It’s true and it’s not true.”
Trained as a dental assistant, AJ started modeling and acting when she moved to Orange County, California. She won a role as a deaf DJ (“I actually had to learn sign language”) in The Pool Boys alongside Miss August 2001 Jennifer Walcott. Jennifer referred AJ to a casting agent, and soon she was featured in a few issues of Special Editions. AJ tested for Playmate, and before she knew it she was Miss May. “I consider her my big sister and a good role model,” AJ said of Jennifer’s generosity. “I hope to be the same for another girl someday.”
In addition to her successful modeling career – she’s done promotional work for brands like Chevy and Tommy Hilfiger – AJ is a wife and mother to two children. “If you’re a real fan, you’ve seen my Hot Housewives pictorial,” she said.
When she’s not working, AJ likes to relax with friends and family – going for dinner and drinks, or spending the night on the couch watching a football game. “I love my work, and I love my family life,” she said. “I just want to enjoy it.”
She is thankful for everything fate brought her way. “I always wanted to model, but I thought I would live in a small town forever and have limited opportunities. Now I say, ‘Thanks, Playboy!’ I love it.”
