It's no illusion! Playboy.com's Cybergirl of the Month of February is Chloe Crawford, an all-natural blonde from England who now lives and works in Las Vegas as a showgirl and magician's assistant. This week we sit down with Chloe to find out all about her showgirl lifestyle and a few of her favorite things.
Playboy.com: How did you get started posing for Playboy.com?
Chloe: I was a huge Girls Next Door fan, with Holly Madison, Kendra Wilkinson and Bridget Marquardt. I loved the show and seeing all the behind-the-scenes at the Mansion and at Playboy photo shoots. Since then I knew I wanted to shoot for Playboy. After thinking about it for a couple of years I finally had some professional nude photos taken to see how I felt about being nude on camera and had such fun on the shoot that I decided to go for it.
I submitted my photos to Sam Rhima, the casting director for Playboy Plus, and he asked me to come in for a private casting. And now here I am as February's CGOM for 2014!
Playboy.com: You’re also an honest-to-goodness Las Vegas showgirl. How did you get started? Is being a showgirl anything like the movie Showgirls?
Chloe: A lot less beads being thrown under people's feet. [laughs] Sometimes girls can get a little bitchy backstage, but nothing crazy from what I've seen.
I started dancing when I was five years old. It was something I always wanted to do.
Playboy.com: Wow! That sounds amazing!
Chloe: I also loved magic when I was a child so I thought it would be cool to find out all the secrets of how the tricks were done. I was approached by a magician to work with him and of course I said yes. I pretty much get cut in half and made to disappear on a daily basis! It's a lot of fun to hear the audience’s reaction when it happens.
Playboy.com: Can you teach us any magic tricks? Do you have a favorite illusion to perform?
Chloe: My favorite illusions are the ones that happen super fast! Maybe you'll get to see some of my magic tricks in my CGOM video and interview.
Playboy.com: Which physical feature do you most often get complimented on?
Chloe: Usually my bum. It's not overly big or super small, just peachy!
Playboy.com: Aside from modeling, what are you focusing on these days?
Chloe: I'm still performing in Vegas and I've found a new love for modeling, but my goal is to be on telly regularly.
Playboy.com: On an average Saturday night, what are you doing?
Chloe: Working! [laughs] As an entertainer in Vegas I have a crazy busy schedule. When I do have a night off I love to relax—get a massage or jump in the hot tub with a glass of wine.
Playboy.com: What’s your idea of the perfect date?
Chloe: My perfect date would be for someone to take me somewhere I haven't been before or to do something I haven't done before, especially if it's something they're into. It's fun to try new things!
Playboy.com: When do you feel sexiest?
Chloe: When I've had a Chloe day: relaxing bubble bath, mani/pedi, hair done, tan. Then slip into some sexy lingerie and naughty-but-nice heels, throw on a cute dress and I'm ready to go.
Playboy.com: What’s one thing you think all men should know?
Chloe: Women don't like cocky men wearing too much cologne.
Playboy.com: What qualities drive you wild in a man?
Chloe: A guy that's happy and confident with a cute smile.
Playboy.com: How do we win your heart?
Chloe: I love a guy that listens and takes an interest in what I have to say. Even if it's something silly that may not seem all that important to him. And if he drives a classic car he's a keeper!
Playboy.com: What’s the best date you’ve ever been on? The worst?
Chloe: The worst date, not that it was awful, but a guy took me to a movie for our first date (and last!). How boring! I'm not gonna learn anything about someone by staring at the side of their head!
The best date would be when a guy took me to a classic car show on a Saturday morning. We got to check out all these different vintage cars in different stages of restoration, so cool!
Playboy.com: If you could go on a date with one person, dead or alive, who would it be?
Chloe: Hugh Hefner! I've never met him!
Playboy.com: What would your fans be surprised to know about you?Chloe: I have two webbed toes... Quack quack!
