Tina Bockrath, Playboy’s Miss May 1990, was born in Dayton, Ohio. She told Playboy she admires her mom “for raising two children by herself—especially when the going got tough.” Tina was a cheerleader in junior high and majored in theatre at St. Edward’s University in Austin, Texas.
After posing for her Playboy pictorial, Tina went on to host Playboy TV’s Newsfront for five years. She also hosted Midnight’s Summer Dream and a lingerie show for Playboy Online. Tina appeared in several Playboy videos as well as the movie Totally Exposed and the TV show Tales from the Crypt.
In a 1990 interview Tina described her dream date for Playboy: “Tex-Mex food, dancing at a blues club, and catching moonlight on the lake.” Tina said she’s turned on by “beautiful Texas sunsets and weekends on 6th Street in downtown Austin.” She’s turned off by “rush-hour traffic, pushy people, my student loan, and people who judge you for what you have instead of for who you are.”
In 2007 Tina married Emmy Award-winning music composer Velton Ray Bunch. They live in Beverly Hills, California.
