About Brittny Ward
Miss January 2015, the first Playmate of Playboy’s 61st year, is Brittny Ward. This brunette beauty was raised in Sacramento, California. In typical NorCal fashion she grew up spiking volleyballs while listening to classic rock gods such as Led Zeppelin, the Rolling Stones and Janis Joplin.
Brittny’s modeling career began at a young age. Her mother worked as a professional hairdresser, and she entered Brittny into beauty pageants as a teenager. And while she played the part for a while, eventually the pageant queen “turned to the dark side.”
“I’m so different from when I was in the pageants, putting on that smile,” Brittny said. “Now I’m into trying things that scare me, like skydiving and playing with wild animals.”
As part of her more dangerous persona, she got “Strong Willed” tattooed on the back of her neck.
Before appearing within the pages of Playboy, Brittny modeled for 12 years dating back to when she was a teen. One of her first big breaks was participating in a TransWorld Surf model search contestant. This led to her working as a ring babe during UFC 119 in 2010. She eventually signed with Next Management and appeared in a number of photo shoots. She hopes to own her own fitness company someday.
While her Playmate centerfold was the first time posing in the nude, it didn’t faze Brittny one bit.
“I felt very badass when shooting this pictorial–a bit like, say Angelina Jolie. I felt like a hyperconfident, kickass woman,” Brittny said.
As part of this kickass attitude, Brittny hopes to skydive at some point in her life and travel to Africa to go on a safari. She believes life’s too short to worry about silly thing. Her life advice is, “Have fun. Regret nothing, and don’t let people judge or bring you down.”
The secret to happiness, according to Brittny, is music. She says, “It can change your mood instantaneously. It’s like medicine for the soul.”
Being Miss January and the first Playmate of 2015 was a huge honor for Brittny. She says, “Starting a new year is like hitting the refresh button. I love that this inaugurates a new chapter in my life.” She adds, “Happy New–I wish everyone 365 days of great sex!”
