From the runways of Paris and Milan to the cover of Playboy and now to "Celebrity Apprentice", exotic, stunning 2010 Playmate of the Year, Hope Dworaczyk (pronounced "dor-ah-sik") has been considered by fashion insiders as one of the most beautiful people in the world.
This American beauty was born in Port Lavaca, a small town just outside of Houston, Texas. While growing up in Texas this 5 foot 10 inch knockout was crowned the 2000 Miss Teen Texas and soon after signed with Wilhelmina Models. Hope packed her bags and moved to New York City, where she spent 8 years pursuing her modeling career.
As a model, Hope has been seen on the runways of top fashion designers such as, Balenciaga, Robert Rodriguez, Lana Fuchs, Leila Rose, Abaete, Joanna Mastroianni, Rosa Cha, XOXO and Miss Sixty. Hope also joined with Versace on an international world tour to Tokyo, Milan, London and New York. She has also appeared in print campaigns for brands such as Philippe Patek and Elie Saab, among others.
In April 2009, Hope was chosen as Playboy's Playmate of the Month after test shooting for the 55th Anniversary Playmate search. Due to the overwhelming success of her appearance on the cover of Playboy with actor Seth Rogan, Hugh Hefner awarded Hope with the honor of being named the 2010 Playmate of the Year. This appearance on the June, 2010 cover gave her the historic distinction of being Playboy's first 3-D centerfold.
Hope also served as the popular host of Toronto based "Inside Fashion," a weekly beauty lifestyle program that broadcast throughout Canada on E! Entertainment Television and Global TV. Dworaczyk was on the ground floor of the show's development and directed the show's focus towards coverage of international fashion shows, backstage preparations, interviews with top tier fashion photographers and designers and other integral power players in fashion.
An advocate of Best Buddies, an organization that creates one-to-one friendships and employment for people with intellectual or developmental disabilities, Hope faced off in the boardroom on the 4th season of America's guiltiest pleasure, Donald Trump's "Celebrity Apprentice," on NBC to raise money for the cause. Hope led the women's team ASAP into victory against the men's team, Backbone, in a challenge for Omaha Steaks winning $20,000 for her charity, Best Buddies.
Hope now divides her time between Los Angeles, New York, Toronto and Europe.
