Playmate of the Year: I'll use my prize money to pay for medical school

Kennedy Summers, the 2014 Playmate of the Year, has big plans for her prize money.

“You get a 100 grand,” she told TMZ.

And that money will go toward helping her pay for medical school, she revealed, adding “I want to do reconstructive plastic surgery.”

Her title also earned her a brand new car… But only for a year. It’s a lease that ends when her reign as Playmate of the Year is up, she explained to a TMZ cameraman.

When Summers was named Playmate of the Year back in May, the men’s magazine made it a point of highlighting her impressive educational background. Summers obtained a bachelor’s degree and two master’s degrees and now she is working on her M.D.

She also speaks French and German, and her father served in Special Forces for the U.S. Army and her mother was a Russian linguist and cryptologist.

At the Playmate of the Year cocktail luncheon, she said she is determined to ensure that both her sexiness and smarts are put to good use in building the Playboy brand.

“As 2014’s Playmate of the Year, my mission is to help Playboy thrive, as it always has, to break boundaries and carry us into the future.

“Doesn’t Dr. Playmate sound awesome?”
