There must be a free tram between reality TV shows and the Playboy offices. Either has-been reality stars show up naked in its pages, or current reality stars have shown up naked in its pages. Survivor Vanuatu‘s Ami Cusack, who has been in the news before for being one of the series’ first two openly lesbian contestants, posed for the magazine in 1996.
