Raise the bar with Lindsey Pelas, a model and bartender from rural Louisiana. She’s petite – 5’3” – with platinum-blonde hair, green eyes and natural 32DDD bust. “I was born in Ruston, raised in Loranger and went to school in Baton Rouge,” she says, with the faintest hint of an accent. “My family is really down-to-earth – I’ve got five sisters and three brothers, and our backyard was a cornfield!”
In high school, Lindsey was a go-getter – an honors student, class treasurer and voted Most Ambitious by her peers – and continued that upward trend with a bachelor’s degree in history from Louisiana State. “I started modeling in college,” she says. “I did a calendar and a couple of local commercials. When I heard there was a Playboy casting in Dallas, I knew I wanted to go. I brought a friend and we made a road trip out of it.”
The rest, as Lindsey might say, is history. “In my opinion, Playboy models are not only beautiful – they’re fearless and adventurous,” she says. “Playboy is the perfect way for me to show off my body. You’ll never, ever see me streaking on Bourbon street!”
When she’s not behind the bar – or in front of the camera, for that matter – Lindsey loves to go out with her friends. “We go tailgating, hit the bars in Tigerland or take a weekend trip to New Orleans,” she says. “Other than that, I love Lana Del Ray, scary movies and my dog. He’s the love of my life!” Speaking of her love life, as a bartender, Lindsey has heard every pick-up line in the book, but she’s got few of her own ideas on dating in the bar scene. “My ‘type’ changes week to week,” she admits. “You can be buff, a skinny bookworm or an older man – it all depends on my mood. But let me tell you, I’ll always fall for a man in a good suit.” Suit yourselves, guys, ‘cause Miss Pelas is not one to be missed.
