Cara Wakelin is the Playboy Playmate for November 1999. Cara Wakelin’s mother made her do it. It was a cold day in October 1998, and when Cara’s mom read that the Playboy 2000 Playmate search bus was coming to their hometown of Toronto looking for new Playmates, she urged her hesitant daughter to go for a photo test. Thank goodness she did.
Q: This is your first modeling gig. How did your mother persuade you to try out for Playboy?
A: When she saw the newspaper article about the Playmate 2000 search, she started jumping up and down, saying, “You have to do this. You can do it.” I’ve never been very confident about my appearance. As we pulled into the parking lot, I saw ten beautiful blondes waiting in line. I said, “Mom, take me home. What am I doing here?” She said, “Cara, if you don’t get out of this car right now, I’m dragging you in there.” After the test shoot, I thought, It would have been tragic if I had bailed out at the last minute.
Q: Is it true that your nickname in school was Skippy?
A: Yes, because I skipped so many days of class. For a while, I hated school. My mom was open-minded and understood if I didn’t want to go. Eventually, I realized that if you don’t have an education, you’re not going to go very far. I pushed myself to go all the way.
