McLaughlin added that she always wanted to be an iconic brand and she has attained all that she aspired with a lot of hard work.
Kate Romero was also enthusiastic about winning the ‘photographer and model’ tag and showed great excitement to see her name next to her work in July issue in Playboy. She was seeking to win a new client and so she focused on listening and integrating the tips of Steven Wayda and Arny Freytag, which helped her a lot in winning the title. She added that watching her name next to her work would be as validating as winning Playboy Shootout.
To be featured in Playboy magazine, ten talented photojournalists and ten dazzling models from around the world paired up to show their talent and win the Playboy Shootout. The shootout was hosted by Celebrity Apprentice 2 contender and 2001 Playmate of the Year, Brande Roderick and was produced by America’s Next Top Model director Claudia Frank. The teams were given sexy assignments for all ten episodes which were reviewed by a panel of judges. One pair was expelled every week and the process was continued until the Playboy got its new winning photographer and model pair, Kate Romero and Shanna Marie McLaughlin.
