We wonder what Tyra Banks has to say about this.
America's Next Top Model contestant Eugena Washington has been named Playboy's Playmate of the Year 2016, after first appearing in the -- now (kinda?) non-nude -- magazine as Playmate of the Month in December.
As any ANTM devotee can tell you, Washington finished in third place during the seventh cycle -- that's the season current psoriasis spokesperson CariDee English won. Or maybe you remember her as the girl who got super mad when another model poured water on her bed and said it was "pee." Yes! Her!
"It's a great time for this. The world is changing. I hope this brings different eyes to the magazine and new audiences," Washington told Playboy. "Right now, I'm doing whatever I want to do, day by day. That's how I live. That's what my life is about. As long as I'm doing what I want to do, I'm happy. Right now, being a part of Playboy is what I want to do."
And Playmate of the Year isn't just a title; she also got $100K and a new car!
Well, she got a two-year lease on a 2017 Fiat 124 Spider, but that's not so bad!
Since appear on ANTM, Washington has also been in a McDonald's commercial and is the face of the Kardashian Kollection for Sears. Which is good news, considering what befell other Top Model contestants. Learn more in the video below.
