Playboy have announced Ali Chanel as their latest playmate, but fans want to know more about her!

In August, Playboy officially made Ali their latest playmate, but the company only recently revealed that she is in fact their curviest playmate to date.

Of the achievement model Ali said: “I think the world is just ready to accept all different kinds of bodies and realise that we’re all worth loving. And I think that it’s just so empowering because there are so many people that feel unseen and misrepresented in media today. It just feels so special that I get to be that girl for sure.”

Who is Ali Chanel?

Thirty two-year-old Playboy model Ali Chanel is a mother to her three-year-old daughter Arlo, who she regularly posts on her Instagram account.

With 85k followers on Instagram under her handle @alichanel, Ali is growing a presence on social media. She regularly uploads selfies, outfit pictures, and family shots with her boyfriend and daughter.

She’s signed to Natural Model Management, who document her measurements as 5”8 with a 35 ½” waist. They state that she wears a US 12-14.

Ali is a jack of all trades and said in her Playboy interview that when she left high school she went to beauty school, moved to Arizona to start a band and then worked at a school, all before becoming a model for Playboy.

How did she get her start at Playboy?

Ali Chanel was actually cherry-picked by Playboy and she told Fox News her agent called her to tell her Playboy wanted to see her the next day,

In her Playboy interview she explains how different it was to her expectations:

“When I was considering doing Playboy, I had this preconceived notion of what it would be like. I expected older men would interview me and that I’d have to show them my body to get the gig.

“It wasn’t like that at all. It was nice learning about everything Playboy stands for as a brand, and it’s so cool that almost everyone I’ve worked with for the shoot has been a woman.”
