Nicole Wood is Playboy’s Miss April 1993. Nicole was born in Canton, Ohio, and as a teenager she was a finalist in the Miss Teen New Jersey pageant. After being named Playmate of the Month in April 1993, Nicole went on to appear in several Playboy videos and Special Editions. She was also captain of the Playboy X-treme Team, which competed in adventure races, including the 2000 Eco Challenge in Borneo.
Nicole’s adventurous spirit was evident when she listed her secret fantasies for Playboy in a 1993 interview: “Skydive, fly a fighter jet, go on an African safari (to shoot pictures, not animals), and play quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles and get Randall Cunningham’s salary!”
What turns this blond beauty on? “Quiet, rugged men in cowboy boots and jeans, mountains, candlelight dinners, bubble baths for two.” She’s turned off by loud obnoxious men, men you can’t trust, jealousy, and sloppy dressers. “I hate wrinkled shirts.” She described her dream date this way: “We fly to the Grand Canyon, get a pair of horses, sleep under the stars, and live like cowboys for a weekend.”
After working with Playboy, Nicole started her own business. She created a makeup and skin care line called Unique Face Cosmetics. She also runs a Westmont, New Jersey, day spa called The Beauty Lounge.
