Jessica Burciaga is our Playmate of the Month for February 2009. All natural, she has a dark, smoky look—long brown hair, shaded eyes, and smoldering curves. Jessica is of Mexican, French, and Irish descent. She was raised in Los Angeles, and from the start she had her sights set on a career in the entertainment industry.
“I was studying broadcast journalism, but it wasn’t working out,” she said. “My brother read Stuff magazine, and he entered me in one of their modeling contests. I didn’t think I would get a call back, but a month later the phone was ringing.”
She was featured twice in Stuff and once in Maxim before Playboy reps came knocking. We hired her as a Bunny and blackjack dealer for our club at the Palms in Vegas, and after an enthusiastic show of hands we named her Miss February 2009. Jessica has also appeared in Import Tuner, Modified Mag¸ Performance Auto & Sound¸ Show Latina, and Lowrider Magazine, among others.
“Playboy is my greatest accomplishment to date,” said Jessica. “I’m still interested in journalism, and my appearances on The Girls Next Door could lead to a TV hosting job.” It would be enough for most people to be a Playmate, but it’s not enough for the ambitious Miss Burciaga. She’s living in Los Angeles with her dog, Theodore, and if you follow her on Twitter, you know that she’s shooting a new set of photos every other day. “I want to be a mogul,” she said. “My own lines of clothes, swimwear, cosmetics, hair extensions—you name it, I want to do it.”
She’s smart, talented, and goal-oriented, and we have no doubt that Jessica will be ruler of her own fashion empire in no time. She’s off to a great head start, running the women’s online clothing boutique Sailor and Saint.
