Amazing Race 14′s Jaime is Playboy’s January Playmate; Cara said no

Jaime Faith Edmondson, a cast member on The Amazing Race 14, will be Playboy’s centerfold in January, but her partner on the race, Cara Rosenthal, refused Playboy’s offer.

Cara “said no. She’s in law school and hopes to be governor someday,” Jaime told the New York Daily News. But Jaime, obviously, said yes to being a Playmate. “I never saw this coming down the road. Here I find myself going to be on newsstands on my 31st birthday.”

She won’t be visible on newsstands, though, because Jaime isn’t even mentioned on the cover, which features Tara Reid. While pictures from her (presumably naked) pictorial haven’t surfaced online yet, Jaime signed autographs at the Playboy Store in Las Vegas last weekend.

On the race, former cheerleader Jaime behaved awfully by doing things like unapologetically calling 911 for directions. As part of her Playboy appearance, she’s also been on E!’s Girls Next Door this season, although at least in this ridiculous clip, she’s just background.

Review: Married at First Sight

Marriage At First Sight

In an era of Tinder and Grindr, instant acceptance or dismissal of a potential partner, or instant sex with another body, Married at First Sight offers the thrill of watching strangers deal with the very basics of relationships.

Beyond the headline-grabbing premise, the series has turned out to be a stripped-down, authentic exploration of something very interesting. Read the full review.
