Crystal McCahill is the Playboy Playmate for May 2009. It’s a different kind of Darwin Award: the Playmate gene, passed from mother to daughter, ensuring survival of the fittest and constant attention from males of the species. Examine the evidence before you in the curvy form of Crystal McCahill, the 25-year-old daughter of Miss August 1968 Gale Olson. “I think every girl who has the figure for it wishes she could be a Playmate, and I’m no exception,” said Gale in her Playmate interview. “All I can say is, I am lucky!” Yet when luck strikes twice, it seems less like luck than destiny. (It has happened just once before, when Miss December 1960 Carol Eden saw her daughter Simone grace the Centerfold in February 1989.)
“I always knew my mother was in Playboy,” says the Illinois-born Crystal. “I remember telling my brothers and sisters, ‘I’m going to do that one day. I’m going to do the exact same pose.’ I mentioned it to my mom when I was about 15, and she said, ‘Wait a few years and then decide.’ Now she’s totally for it and so excited for me.”
Everything changed quickly for Crystal after she tried out during our 55th anniversary Playmate search. She received positive feedback, and then she ran into the Girls Next Door, filming at Hooters. “Bridget came over and asked if she could interview me for her radio show,” says Crystal. “A few days later I ran into Photography Director Gary Cole for a second time at a restaurant. He said, ‘Yes, I think it’s meant to be.’ Then I met Hef, whom I love and think is such an incredible person. All those years I waited to be a Playmate like my mom, and this just happened so fast. I think if you believe in it, you can do whatever you want.”
