Jaslyn Ome’s career took off after being named Playmate of the Month for April 2013. Her retro April pictorial at the Cadillac Jack Diner in Sun Valley, Calif., showed her off in all the right ways. Born and raised in El Dorado Hills in the Bay Area, the Playmate has since been featured in several commercials, including spots for Curve Fragrance and Beats Headphones. She also did promos for the hit film Bad Grandpa with the one and only Johnny Knoxville. Ome and some of the other Playmates even hung out with Irving Zisman from Bad Grandpa at the Playboy mansion where things got a little weird.
Ome, who is of East Indian, African-American and Caucasian descent, has earned some major credentials. When the Playmate isn’t hanging out with Knoxville and starring in commercials, she is busy modeling for several major brands including AT&T, Shop Heartbreak, Enzo Milano and Stache Haus. The April 2013 Playmate has also been in music videos, including Dirt Nasty’s “Hydrocodone.”
Modeling has never been an afterthought for Ome. She has wanted to be in front of the camera since she was 14, signing with Maria Dell in San Francisco at an early age. She graduated from Oak Ridge High school in 2009 and went on to Sacramento State College to study communications. Ome had to make a choice between modeling and school during her second year at Sacramento. Her passion for modeling won out, and it has certainly paid off.
After moving to Los Angeles, Ome sent her portfolio to several agencies. She signed with CESD Talent Agency the same day she met with them. To top off an amazing start in Hollywood, Ome’s mom was in town and a family friend took them to watch the Playmate dancers rehearse. “Pat Lacey, the head of Playboy’s Playmate promotions department, asked me if I ever thought about being a Playmate. If you can believe it, I actually said no! I thought it was a joke, but then I realized it was serious. I followed up a few weeks later and the rest is history,” Ome told 411.com.
A true West Coast girl, Ome loves everything about the beach, especially marine life. A fun fact about this Playmate: she loves sharks. Ome even has her own customized shark tooth necklace, which she alternates with her signature Playboy Bunny necklace that every Playmate is given.
