Like thunder, lightning and other natural phenomena, Chelsie Aryn qualifies as a force majeure. Born and raised in Berne, a small town in mountainous upstate New York, the effortlessly effervescent Chelsie is part German, part Japanese and one hundred percent her own woman. A lover of all things rough, tough and tumble, you’re more likely to find our Miss March on the dirtbike track than shopping or clubbing. “I like to think I’m tough,â€ she says, upbeat. “In high school, they called me Mighty Mouse, ‘cause I thought I was so tough. But hey, let’s face it – I’m a small girl and a big lover!â€ The youngest of her siblings, Chelsie Aryn was raised a country girl – a self-described tomboy, she’s afraid of frogs, loves snakes and is often covered in mud – and when she got older, she parlayed that out-country charm into a devoted online following. Technically, this is Chelsie’s second round as Miss March – back in 2011, she won the Playboy Miss Social contest, and along with it, a trip to the Playboy Mansion. “Despite my tomboyishness, I’m a huge fan of Playboy and The Girls Next Door,â€ she explains. “I even modeled my bedroom after Bridget’s room – bubblegum pink, with tons of Playboy stuff. My tour guide at the Mansion was another Miss March, Jennifer Pershing, which was such a coincidence, because hers was the first Centerfold I ever hung on my wall!â€ As Miss Social, Chelsie was offered a test shoot, but she held off – her dream was to become a Playmate, and she wouldn’t stand for anything less. We love a woman who knows what she wants. “When I started modeling, becoming a Playmate was my number-one goal,â€ she says. “At fourteen, I found my dad’s Playboys in the basement, and ever since then, I’ve been obsessed – I have a subscription, I hang up the Centerfolds, and I’m that girl who has Playboy everything. I cried when I got my official Bunny necklace!â€ As our Miss March 2015, Chelsie plans to branch out, trading deciduous forests of New York for the palm-lined coast of California, but in her heart, she’ll always be a hometown girl. “I’ll be the same girl I’ve always been,â€ she insists. “My dad made me promise – if I ever became a Playmate, I’d take him to the Playboy Mansion.â€ We’re pleased to say that our charming Miss March can make good on her promise.
