Victoria Silvstedt was born on the 19th of September, 1974, in Skelleftea, Sweden -- a small village very close to the Arctic Circle. She was raised with an older sister and a younger brother in her then middle class family.

Growing up, she spent her winters skiing professionally, but at 18 she decided to enter a different competition. Victoria entered the Miss Sweden contest and represented Sweden in the 1993 Miss World Pageant. Although she didn't win, she did come in as one of the top ten contestants.

After the pageant, Victoria left her small town in hot pursuit of fame. She found herself in Paris where she began modeling professionally. Standing at 5' 9", it wasn't very difficult for the stunner to get modeling gigs.

Three years later, Playboy discovered her and she became Miss December 1996 and the 1997 Playmate of the Year. [Full Bio]
