Janine Habeck is Playboy’s Miss September 2006. Half-German and half-Italian, she was raised in West Berlin, Germany. “I remember when the Berlin Wall fell,” she said.
Janine sent test photos to Playboy after one of her friends told her that she looked just like the centerfolds. She proved her friends right. Janine became Playmate of the Month and Playmate of the Year in Germany, and she was one of 12 international models to pose for the World Soccer Team pictorial. Hugh Hefner invited her to stay at the Mansion and become the second German Playmate to pose for the American centerfold.
“I’m close with Hef and his girlfriends,” Janine told Playboy. She went on to appear on four episodes of The Girls Next Door and in the raunchy comedy The Pool Boys.
“Being a Playmate in America is a lot different than being a Playmate in Germany,” she said. “In America, you become a celebrity. You go to dinner in a limousine, and your bunny costume is tailored to your measurements. Mine is purple.”
Janine has nothing but good things to say about her Playboy experience. “Playboy is sexy, not sexist,” she said. “Playmates are beautiful and confident, and I’m proud to be one of them.” Janine told Playboy she’s turned on by chocolate, champagne, and Coke. Her turnoffs include people who smoke in restaurants and people who do bad things to kids.
