Jenna, Heidi on Playboy’s cover.
Survivor Amazon winner Jenna Morasca and fellow cast member Heidi Strobel are on the cover of the August issue of Playboy, which hit newsstands yesterday. Standing in thigh-deep water and sort-of holding hands, they appear topless but with strategically placed arms. For their appearance, each was paid “around $1 million,” CBS reports.

It’s, like, any other opportunity comes along I would equally want to do that as much doing it with Jenna.”
