Born on December 23, 1979 in the stunningly beautiful North Coast town of Astoria, Oregon, Holly Madison's childhood wasn't exactly what you'd consider typical for a future Playboy model.

Shortly after birth, Holly's family moved to the sparsely populated Prince of Wales Island in Alaska. It was there that Holly spent the majority of her youth playing in the woods, reading Nancy Drew mysteries and watching bears rummage through her family's garbage.
In hopes of providing their children with a more normal life, Holly`s parents moved the family back to Oregon. Holly was in middle school, and despite being involved in a number of school activities, she found the transition difficult and at times struggled to make friends. As Holly says, she was like an "Alaskan fish out of water."
After high school, Holly developed a passion for acting and enrolled at Portland State University where she studied theater and psychology. Frequent trips to Disneyland, however, lead the ambitious teen to fall in love with the warm climate and rolling landscape of Southern California. After two years at PSU she transferred to Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles.
In order to support her education and the high cost of living in California, Holly worked as both a Hawaiian Tropics model and as a roller skating waitress at the Santa Monica Hooters restaurant. As her time at the restaurant progressed, she overheard her fellow waitresses talk about the parties they`d attended at the Playboy Mansion. Hearing the hype, Holly was ecstatic when one of Hugh Hefner`s friends spotted her modeling in a Hawaiian Tropics contest and placed her on the Mansion`s guest list.
The Midsummer Night`s Dream party - the most elegant party of the year - was Holly`s first experience at the Mansion. Along with a few of her friends, she explored the ins and outs of the Mansion`s 5.7 acres and mingled with a number of celebrities. Feeling somewhat star-struck and a bit overwhelmed, she left the party completely oblivious to the fact that that she would soon become a regular on the Mansion`s guest list.
Holly spent one year attending parties at the Mansion before Hef invited her out on a personal date. Managing to capture his heart by seducing him with her intelligence and charm, she was quickly invited to become a permanent resident of the Mansion. Holly accepted, and today she is proud to hold the title of being "Hef`s number one girl."
As her modeling career blossoms, Holly continues to take advantage of the majority of opportunities presented to her. Along with fellow Mansion residents Bridget Marquardt and Kendra Wilkinson, she runs her own clothing line, stars in the E! reality television series "The Girls Next Door" and was recently featured on the cover of the November 2005 issue of Playboy.
Despite having to deal with a hectic schedule that includes weekly photo shoots, interviews and public appearances, Holly remains dedicated to her education. She continues to study business at Santa Monica College and real estate development at UCLA Extension in hopes of one day earning her degree. Having traveled around the country in style with Hef and the girls, her goal in life is to visit every Walt Disney theme park in the world and to seize whatever future opportunities might come her way.
With picture-perfect beauty and a bright attitude to match, those opportunities will surely be abundant.
