Nikki Leigh
Nikki Leigh is the Playboy Playmate for May 2012. The most cosmopolitan flower child you’ll ever meet, Nikki Leigh is always ready to grab her bags and hit the open road. “I’m a gypsy of sorts,” says our 23 year old Miss May. “Instead of staying copped up at home, I would rather be traveling and taking in everything a new place has to offer.” Being Miss May has taken Nikki Leigh’s breath away. “It’s always something I never expected but always wanted – to be a sex symbol with brains. More than anything though, I want to make the world smile.” Nikki loves to travel and spread happiness around the world, “I’m all set to travel and do whatever I can do be an incredible ambassador for Playboy. In fact, I can’t wait!”

Ambitions: To attack all the opportunities coming my way with fearlessness, fun and class.

Turn-Ons: A thoughtful goofball with a contagious smile. Oh… and a tan muscular back never hurts!!!

Turnoffs: 1) A guy who can dish it but not take it (I’m fun but FEISTY) 2) Men who think they are God’s gift to women. Take a hike dudes I’m not impressed.

My Secret Talent: EATING! No lie some girls say they can out drink you, but I’ll out eat you! Steaks, sushi, pasta, cheesecake.. you name it, I’ll eat it.

My Addition: Laughter – let’s cuddle up and watch a triple feature of Bridesmaids, The Hangover and Dumb and Dumber.

My Wingman: Kodi, my Pomeranian stud who is about to travel the Playboy world with me this year. Buckle up buddy!
