Miss January 1997 Jami Ferrell ditched her small-town roots on her way to becoming Playmate of the Month. Born in Muncie, Indiana, she always dreamt of living in a big city.
She says she loves to try new things at the spur of the moment. She proved that the day after graduating from high school when she went to the Indianapolis airport and bought a ticket to Los Angeles without any plans for what to do after she landed.
Jami was shy growing up. She would sit in the back of the classroom so she could stare out the window. “I was always reserved, even painfully shy,” she said. “I didn’t have any friends.”
One of her favorite things to do is curl up with a good book. She also loves horseback riding and scuba diving. She’s an avid antique hunter and loves buying nostalgic toys and novelties.
Jami made several appearances in a series of videos for Playboy for her pictorial and also had a small part in 2002’s Boat Trip.
