Shallan Meiers had the right look to become one of the three finalists on the Fox special Girl Next Door: The Search for a Playboy Centerfold, but the 20-year-old model had to overcome serious jitters about baring it all. "The show was one big Fear Factor for me," she confesses. "I've been a shy person all my life. If I was ever into it with a guy, by God, the lights were off. I didn't even want to change in front of anyone on the show."
Shallan says she bonded with Miss August, Christina Santiago, after the program ended, and admits to cooking up a little mischief with contestant Jill Scott. "One night the cameramen watched us all go to bed," she says. "I asked Jill, 'I wonder what would happen if you jumped into bed with me right now?' I thought it would be funny. So she jumps into bed, throws the covers over our heads and starts moving around like she's humping me.
