Road Rules South Pacific’s Cara is Playboy’s Nov. playmate of the month.
Cara Zavaleta from Road Rules South Pacific is Playboy’s Miss November 2004 Playmate. How did she end up naked in the magazine’s pages? She contacted them. According to the New York Post, “she simply called the editors and asked if they were interested in having her pose for a reality show pictorial feature then in the works. But when she met with them, they suggested she might be qualified for Playmate material.” Playboy.com has a for-adults, non-work-safe preview of Cara, which reveals that her turn-ons include “nice butts and intelligence.” The site’s preview says “you may remember her as wide-eyed, enthusiastic beauty from Road Rules South Pacific and The Gauntlet.” Yes, we may, if our brains still had room to store the identities of every single one of the dozens–hundreds–of barely indistinguishable MTV reality show cast members who’ve passed by on our televisions over the past 12 years. But who cares; she’s naked.

Surprisingly, man not eaten alive on Eaten Alive

Eaten Alive

Discovery Channel’s happy family holiday special Eaten Alive aired Sunday, rewarding viewers for their two full hours of viewing by ensuring that they spent quality time in the company of others instead of wasting that time doing something else that might not have been as satisfying, such as buying things that have labels which accurately reflect their contents.
