Raquel Pomplun Named 2013 Playboy Playmate of the Year [87 Photos]

On Thursday night at the Playboy Mansion in Los Angeles, CA, Playboy founder Hugh Hefner named Raquel Pomplun (@rpomplun) the 2013 Playboy Playmate of the Year and gave her a check for $100k and a new 2014 Jaguar. Not bad. The torch was passed from 2012’s Playmate of the Year and all around internet superstar Jaclyn Swedberg.

Raquel Pomplun is Playboy’s 54th Playmate of the Year and the first Mexican-American to be given the honor. The 25 year-old classical ballet dancer and host of Playboy Radio on Sirius XM channel 102 first appeared in Playboy last year when she was named their Miss April 2012.

For obvious reasons many of her photos are a little too intense to view at work so we did a public service and weeded through the clutter to compile the ultimate collection of SFW photos. Still incredibly awesome, just not overtly gratuitous.
