HOT WIRE—Playboy Founder Hugh M. Hefner named Raquel Pomplun, 25, the magazine's 2013 Playmate of the Year during a special luncheon on the garden grounds of the Playboy Mansion. Raquel, a 25-year-old from Chula Vista, California, is Playboy's first Mexican American Playmate of the Year. Raquel is featured on the cover of Playboy's June 2013 issue and inside the magazine in an eight-page pictorial by fashion photographer Michael Bernard. The issue will appear on newsstands and on i.Playboy.com Friday, May 17th. Along with her title, Raquel will receive $100,000 in prize money and a one-year lease on a 2014 Jaguar F-TYPE, the newest addition to the Jaguar line up. The new 2014 Jaguar F-TYPE convertible sports car is the first new two-seater sports car from the brand since the iconic E-Type was launched over 50 years ago, and is on sale this month in showrooms across the US.
Raquel is Playboy's 54th Playmate of the Year. Playboy named its first Playmate of the Year, Ellen Stratton, in 1960. More information is available at playboy.com/pmoy2013.
