“I was raised dirt-biking, four-wheeling, all that fun stuff,” says February 2018 Playmate Megan Samperi, her enormous blue eyes darting with mischief. “I like going fast. I drive like a dude—one hand on the wheel, a leg up, chilling with my music. All my dude friends are actually scared of me driving.” Our February Playmate is that extra-rare breed of dream girl: the spunky and jaw-droppingly sexy tomboy. A 24-year-old model who loves football, ice hockey and kicking back by a bonfire, Megan also holds a bachelor’s degree in biology. “I studied my butt off for quite some time,” she says. “That’s my backup plan, but I just moved to the O.C. and I’m chasing my dreams.”Those dreams include acting and singing (she’s recently picked up the acoustic guitar again after a long hiatus) while improving her surfing skills. “One day I’ll shred,” she says. “For now, I’m learning.” Growing up in Jupiter, Florida, 90 miles north of Miami, Megan spent most of her time outdoors and learned to love horseback riding—while, of course, putting her own wild spin on it. “I used to jump horses. It’s actually really dangerous. You have to have a connection with the horse before you do anything. I could sit in the barn all day, grooming horses, then ride bareback and be happy.”When it comes to men, this guy’s girl knows exactly what she wants. Just don’t expect her to put anyone in a box, herself included. “No one’s the same, so how can you have a type?” she says, adding, “I love extroverted, intelligent men. Trust is big, and we both need to have separate lives. It’s sexy when a guy is independent, doing his own thing.” Megan, of course, is all about doing her own thing. “I don’t want to be any other person; I want to be myself. My attitude is to just live your life. Go with the flow. Go travel. Things will happen.”When it comes to this live wire, we can’t wait to see what happens next.
