About Rachel Mortenson
Rachel Mortenson is a two-time Playboy cover model, having appeared on the April 2014 Sex and Music Issue and the January/February 2015 winter double issue. The Arizona native never really expected to get into modeling, which is why she didn’t enter the industry until the “late” age of 26.
It was while working as a waitress at Hooters that Rachel gained her first on-camera experience. The company noticed it had a stunner on its hands and made her one of their spokesmodels. It didn’t last, and she ended up working at her father’s jet-fuel company. Unhappy with that, she attended a casting call for the Ford Robert Black agency, and her modeling career took off.
Just one year after joining Ford, Mortenson signed with Wilhelmina Models and earned castings around the country, including with the Frederick’s of Hollywood lingerie company. She then earned a spot in a Carl’s Jr. commercial featuring NFL wide receiver Terrell Owens. She took part in numerous other photo shoots, including one for Galore magazine.
Shortly after appearing on her first Playboy cover, Rachel was contacted by Paul Marciano, the founder of Guess Inc. Marciano noticed her pictures on Instagram and asked if she wanted to model for his brand. This led to her becoming the fall 2014 face of Marciano, Guess’s upscale clothing brand, which gave Playboy a reason to put her on the cover for the second time in less than 12 months.
Although Rachel is slightly older than a lot of the models she works with, she says it doesn’t bother her one bit. She told the Arizona Republic, “Sometimes I fee like it’s ridiculous that I’m almost 30 and I’m a model on these shoots with girls who are 18 and 19. It’s interesting, the dynamics on shoots, but I’ve never felt the competitive thing on the set. I’m just not mentally there in my life anymore; I’m past that.”
