Raquel Pomplun is your Playboy Playmate of the Year for 2013.
She earned it, too. Not just because she's hot, but with effort!
"Honestly, I'm thinking I'm so grateful they look OK because I had a fever in these pictures," the 25-year-old said of the photo shoot that landed her the cover.
Pomplun, a biochemistry major and classically trained ballerina, revealed that she battled a 103-degree fever for the chance to model for Playboy.
"I rocked it," the first-ever Mexican-American POY proudly said.
She won't find many arguments from those who've seen it.
"I can't begin to describe how excited I am to receive this honor and the opportunity to represent Playboy as its first Mexican-American Playmate of the Year," she added.
"Playboy has taught me a side of myself I didn't know before."
Surely readers have enjoyed that particular reveal.
