I always found his taste in women to be very bland and middle of the road.
Blonde,mid 20's,slim with fake large c or small d cups.Rinse,repeat.

That was late-period Hef. I wish to remember his glorious golden age, that gave us such wondrous beauties as Janet Lupo, China Lee, Anna Nicole Smith, Cynthia Myers, Miriam Gonzalez, Ida Ljungqvist, Roberta Vasquez, Azizi Johari, June Cochran, Christa Speck, Marilyn Lange, Melinda Windsor, Gwen Wong and Petra Verkaik.

And don't forget September Carrino ;)

And also, DO NOT FORGET Ellen Stohl.

In January of 1983, the van she was driving crashed. She was thrown through the windshield, causing massive injuries including a crushed spinal cord. After several months of surgery and rehab, she recovered - but was still **88** from the waist down, confined to a wheelchair. After some attempts at taking acting jobs, she wrote to Playboy:

"My name is Ellen Stohl, I am a model/actress, who three years ago was injured in a tragic auto accident. At first, I had given up hope of pursuing my career, but after a few months and a lot of learning, I realized a wheelchair should not make a difference. Since that realization, I have been working twice as hard to achieve my career goals not only for myself but also to teach society that being disabled does not make a difference. The reason I choose Playboy for this endeavor is that sexuality is the hardest thing for disabled persons to hold onto. Not to say that they are not capable, but rather that society's emphasis on perfection puts this definitive damper on self-esteem. Well, I believe it is time to show society the real story. Anyone can be sexy; it is a matter of how a person feels about himself or herself, and personally I feel great."

Hef got the letter, and was admittedly nervous about it. "But he said the issue (of disabled rights) was important enough to take the risk," Stohl said. Editors at the magazine feared that critics would have a field day, accusing Playboy of exploitation of the disabled as a fetish object. ("Why stir the buzzards up?" one editor asked.) Her pictoral didn't show her wheelchair at all, and only three small photos showed her in a seated position. And after it ran, there was no outcry, or even a noticeable bump in sales. Most reaction was favorable, Playboy editors and Stohl said.

Stohl met the magazine's standards for a pretty face, said Gary Cole, Playboy's photography director. "No one has a perfect body."

MONTY HALL (1921-2017)

Born in Winnipeg, he graduated from the University of Manitoba, worked as an entertainer and sportscaster in Toronto before heading south to New York in 1955 to host the NBC radio show Monitor. His next gig, the CBS TV game-show Video Village, led him west to Los Angeles, where he would create "Let's Make a Deal" with Stefan Hatos.

Early shows had the audience dressed in suits and dresses, until a woman came holding a sign with the message: "Roses are red, violets are blue, I came here to deal with you." "The next week, everybody had a sign," Hall said in a 2002 interview with the Archive of American Television. "Then somebody else had a funny hat, then came costumes. ..."

"Iím a people person," he said on the PBS documentary series Pioneers of Television. "And so I donít care if they jump on me, and I donít care if they yell and they fainted ó those are my people."

One of the first inductees to the Game Show Hall of Fame, he also received a lifetime-achievement Emmy in 2013 from Wayne Brady, the current host of Let's Make a Deal.

Hall was also known for his philanthropy, helping to raise nearly a billion dollars for various causes. "His philanthropy work was more important to him than his TV work. He saw TV as a means to help him raise money for charities. He was always paying it forward," son-in-law Todd Kessler told CNN.

Sharon Hall said her father was always working for charities because of an experience that happened to him as a young man that changed his life.

"He took a job scrubbing steps to try to pay for his college and a man took pity on him and told him he would pay for his college if he did three things: retain an A average, keep the man's name anonymous, and promise to pay it forward," she said. Hall retained a friendship with the man whose name he never revealed. "He was always going to telethons to raise money. He was even honored with the Royal Order of Canada. The highest honor for a Canadian."

MONTY HALL (1921-2017)


Through his show, his name was also associated with a famous logic puzzle.

As someone said on Twitter: "He died twice because he's TOM FUCKIN' PETTY."
