‘Big Brother 14’ spoilers: Contestant Kara Monaco’s modeling past

Before we get to our panoramic look at the new “Big Brother 14” cast later in the day, we have a few more details to share about a certain cast member — and no, it’s not Willie Hantz.

This time, we’re talking about the token model of the season in Kara Monaco. While some of the contestants with this profession choose to come on this show to boost their career, Monaco already has a few major highlights behind her. Thanks to a find by Starcasm, it’s been revealed that Monaco was named the 2006 Playmate of the Year by a certain men’s magazine — on a cover issue talking about “the red hot girls of Myspace” (which is certainly a weird phrase to read today).

In addition to working for Hugh Hefner, Monaco has also appeared in FHM, Men’s Health, and in the truest and saddest bit of irony, worked at Walt Disney World when she was younger as Cinderella and Snow White. Well, you know that say — “when you wish upon a star…”

Monaco is going to have an uphill battle this coming season, mostly in that women over the past few years who enter this show as a model (Monet, Laura, and Cassie are fine recent examples) typically end up being the second person evicted from the house. The only real exception to the rule was Rachel Reilly, but she was also a VIP cocktail waitress who was also a chemistry graduate student. (In other words, she had a little bit of other stuff going on.)

We’ll find out if Kara and some of the other contestants can really play the game in just one week. Our look at the full “Big Brother” cast reveal will come shortly after noon today (9:00 p.m. Pacific time) following the reveal on SuperPass. Be sure to check back then!
