Lindsey Eve Vuolo (born October 19, 1981) is an American model best known for her appearance in Playboy as the November 2001 Playmate of the Month. She has appeared in a number of Playboy Special Editions, and in Playboy videos. She also appeared on TV shows such as The Girls Next Door and The Celebrity Apprentice. Lindsey Vuolo's mother is a Jew whose parents were Hungarian and German Jews. Her father is Italian American, and converted to Judaism. She was a Communications major at Indiana University of Pennsylvania. In 1999 she went on a two-week exchange program in Israel, and describes her experience at the Western Wall as a profoundly emotional and transformative one for her. Prior to her posing for Playboy, Vuolo had been working two jobs as a cocktail waitress to pay for college when a friend and coworker suggested sending in photos to the magazine. Despite Vuolo's belief that she was not "Playboy material", Vuolo, whose only modeling experience at that point was posing for a local swimsuit calendar, eventually told her coworker that she could send in photos of her if she wanted. After Playboy contacted Vuolo in early 2001, she flew to Los Angeles without telling her parents.
