Rachelle Leah will be posing nude for Playboy's November edition. The 24-year-old model and host of Spike's "UFC All Access" had previously appeared clothed as October's "Babe of the Month" for "Playboy" in 2006, but this is the first time she will appear naked in a 10-page photo spread. She will also appear on the cover.
Born in San Carlos, California, Rachelle Leah San Filippo first started modeling at 16 and was mostly doing swimwear shoots before she was tapped as a model for Ford Motor Company. This marked a departure from her previous desire to be a paramedic, which was trumped by her entry into the professional modeling world.
At 19, Rachelle Leah was chosen as an Octagon Girl for Ultimate Fighting Championship based on a photo of her on a mixed martial arts website. She has since appeared in magazines like "Maxim", "Men's Health", and "Stuff." Most recently, she made the cover of "Flex" in January 2008.
Surprisingly, Rachelle Leah's decision to do a nude photo shoot for "Playboy" didn't faze her parents: "I didn't accept the offer until I asked my mother and father because I'm very close with them. I've got a very supportive family, so I'm really lucky that everyone is really proud of me."
