Jenna Morasca, the 21-year-old swimsuit model who won the $1 million prize last month on CBS’s “Survivor: The Amazon,” will be dropping her swimsuit for the August issue of Playboy, the New York Post reports.
And she won’t be alone. Fellow contestant Heidi Strobel, 24, a physical education teacher from Buffalo, Mo., also will pose.
Not that the two aren’t used to baring all. On the show, the they both went topless for one of the challenges — but producers blurred out their chests.
“To my mind that was a classic moment of primetime television,” Playboy magazine editorial director James Kaminsky tells the Post, which speculates that Morasca could earn at least another $1 million — depending on how well the issue sells — for doing the cover feature.
The photos were already taken in a Brooklyn studio last month, the morning after Jenna was named the winner on a live May 11 telecast, the newspaper reports.
“Jenna actually went from her appearance on the Letterman show directly to our studio,” Kaminsky revealed.
The pictorial required the approval of “Survivor” executive producer Mark Burnett and CBS, who both said yes.
“They had no problem with it,” said Kaminsky.
