After heating up the pages of ‘Playboy’ over the past year, model and actress Dani Mathers has been given top honors from Hugh Hefner as the men’s magazine’s 2015 Playmate Of The Year. Congrats, girl!
As Playboy‘s 2015 Playmate Of The Year, Dani Mathers, 28, is totally the woman that every girl wants to be and every guy wants to be with. Lucky her, right? After careful deliberation, Hugh Hefner, 89, chose 2014’s Miss May as his favorite bunny of the last 365 days. Check out what she said about her big win — and the crazy year she has in store!

“I’ve wanted this for so long,” the blonde beauty said of being named Playmate Of The Year. “Like with any accomplishment, you work hard and hope it pays off, but I can’t believe I did it. I’m committed to being a great PMOY, and I’m going to work my hardest to show everyone how appreciative I am for this opportunity.”
So humble! Dani sounds like she really wants to give it all she’s got as this year’s most exceptional Playboy centerfold.
Hailing from Tarzana, California, Dani has had her fair share of the spotlight prior to her winning moment. Over the course of her career as an actress and model, she’s appeared in a number of movies including Neighbors and Furious 7 and has held a recurring role on CBS’ daytime hit, The Bold And The Beautiful, since 2005. She’s also lent her talent to Playboy TV’s Badass and Playboy Trip: Patagonia. Wow, this girl really knows how to work!
Despite her busy career, the 28-year-old plans on taking her obligations very seriously. And maybe even the best part of all? Along with her title, Dani has taken home some amazing prizes, too! The 5-foot-1 stunner has been given $100,00 in prize money and a one-year lease on a 2015 MINI Cooper S Convertible. Raise your hand if you wish you were Dani right now!
While Dani must totally be on cloud nine right now, she definitely has some big shoes to fill. Last year, the very-deserving , Kennedy Summers, 28, was given the crown for 2014’s PMOY.
Born in Berlin and raised in Virginia, Kennedy proved she was so much more than just her gorgeous blonde hair and hot body to match. The bilingual model racked up a bachelor’s degree in anthropology and also got her master’s degree in health administration. Whoa! As if that wasn’t enough, at the time of her win, Kennedy was starting work on her M.D., with future hopes of becoming a plastic surgeon.
If one thing’s for sure, it’s that Hef really knows how to pick ’em!
