The women are the finalists out of more than 400 women who applied when Playboy announced it would be doing the feature.

The following women are featured: Jeannie Byrd (New Albany, Indiana), Deborah Moss (Bozeman, MT), Kristi Jones (Colorado Springs, CO), Beth Beanblossom (Sterling, IL), Tesha Mullen (Lancaster, CA), and Katie McKee (Bridgeview, IL).
