The term “Playboy Bunny” and “hardcore gamer” typically aren’t within 10 nautical miles of one another…that is, until now! Miss Pamela Horton was extremely recently named Playboy’s “Miss October 2012” for her voluptuous looks and stunning smile. But did you know Miss October 2012 is not only a Tauren Druid in World of Warcraft, but is her WoW server’s first maximum level herbalist? For anyone who knows exactly what earning that achievement entails, that level of dedication is usually reserved for unemployed diaper-wearing virgins who live in their mother’s basement, and not models evaluated for their beauty by Hugh Hefner.
Shanghai was fairly confident that the whole “I’m a gamer gurrrl hurrrr” was a front at first, but within seconds of starting the recorders, it became painfully obvious that Pamela Horton knows her way around a gaming PC and not just a photo shoot. Shanghai talks with Pam about her “functional addiction” to video gaming (a condition most of us have), why she can’t stand first person shooters, and how she plans on turning her modeling career and Playboy title into a way to…break into the games industry?
Editor’s Note: As an aside, Pamela Horton is the real deal. I thought this was going to be a PR stunt trying to market her to 18-35 year old demographic, but she passed the litmus test of her being a real gamer with every other sentence she spoke; I was fairly stunned with the depths of her gaming knowledge (and no, I’m not just saying this because she’s hot). Also, I was allotted 10 minutes to speak with her and we went for a half hour; I of course recommended that she continue to be as chill and cool as she currently is as her fame grows. Go say hey to her on Twitter and help defend her from the hardcore jackass gaming crowd who are attacking her for being a “gurl”.
