Flora, Beth S., Veronica and Jisela appear nude in Playboy this month.
(Warning: the links below contain full nudity. Probably not a wise idea to click them if you’re underage or at work. But whatever.)

The May 2002 edition of Playboy features four past The Real World and Road Rules cast members in various states of undress as part of its “Real Nude in the Real World” feature.

You don’t need to buy the magazine to see the pictures, though; as rwrrweb.com found, someone has posted the entire series of the heavily airbrushed, almost unrecognizable cast members on a message board; the series is also available on some sites.
