Jordan Monroe is Playboy’s Miss October 2006. Born in Denison, Iowa, she was raised in Omaha, Nebraska. Growing up she always wanted to be in Playboy. As the baby of the family her parents weren’t sure about her decision at first, but they came around. She told the Daily Nebraskan, “I’m the first Playmate from Iowa, so now there have been Playmates from every state.”
Jordan was studying family and consumer sciences at the University of Nebraska when she auditioned for the “Girls of the Big 12” pictorial and caught the eye of Hugh Hefner. He took one look at Jordan and knew she was Playmate material. “I was so flattered,” she told Playboy. “I mean, he sees so many beautiful women every day, and he chose me to be Miss October.”
Jordan spent most of the following summer at the Mansion, appeared on two episodes of Playboy TV’s Hot Babes Doing Stuff Naked, and was featured in Naked Workout. “I’m a fitness nut,” she said. “I eat healthy, and I like to stay in shape.”
Jordan is a busy model, and when she’s not working, she’s hanging out with friends—going to the gym, hiking Runyon Canyon, or having dinner and drinks. Her biggest ambition is to make a difference in the world, and she uses her Playmate celebrity to raise money for everything from animal welfare to cancer.
“Sometimes I miss Nebraska, but I’m so happy in Los Angeles,” she said. “Being a Playmate changed my life. I’ve traveled all over the world, and I’ve met so many new people.”
What turns Jordan on? She goes for “intelligence, humor, a great body, a cute smile, and all-around genuine guys.” She’s turned off by selfish, rude, cocky behavior.
