Rule 5 Saturday - Swedish Meatball - Victoria Silvstedt

For this week's Rule 5 main event, I've selected Victoria Silvstedt.  Born in Skelleftehamn, Sweden, she was an aspiring skier, until an accident at age 16 ended those hopes.

Her mother and sister sent her pictures to the Miss Sweden contest, showing their love for humanity, and the pageant asked her to participate.  In 1993, she was chosen to represent Sweden at the Miss World pageant in Sun City, South Africa.
She began modelling in Paris, and shortly thereafter, came to the attention of Playboy and Hugh Heffner.  She was Playmate of the month in Dec. 1996, and Playmate of the Year in 1997, and has done several other bits with Playboy.

She has stuck with modelling, and has an impressive list of credits, including Guess?, FHM, Glamour, GQ, Hello!, Maxim and Vanity Fair.
More recently, she has tried her hand at acting, and playing in reality shows (they will take anyone pretty, won't they?), and even a bit of singing, although she admits to not taking that very seriously.

A well rounded woman, in more ways than one.
