Born on Valentine’s Day, Shelby Chesnes grew up in Florida and was “always outdoors riding horses, surfing and paddle boarding.” At a young age, her mother used to take her out to the beach and pose her for pictures. “I was [my mother’s] guinea pig.” She was also on an all-star competitive cheerleading team in high school.

Shelby Chesnes later went on to study psychology at Florida Atlantic University. She heard she’d landed her gig with Playboy the day before her 21st birthday. She got the Centerfold after submitting her picture to their website. A month later she did a test shoot in L.A., and the rest is history.
Since her appearance, she’s had people approach her for her autograph. Aside from modeling, Shelby Chesnes has a spray tan business. “I’m very business-minded. I love entrepreneurship and building companies from scratch. I’m much more responsible and mature than most people my age.” She added, “I’m always looking for ways to make improvements on other products....thinking big and believing!”
She stays in shape by doing Pilates and yoga. She thinks her best feature is her hair – “100% mine! There’s nothing better – or sexier – than a full head of long, luxurious hair. You can tell if a person takes care of themselves and eats right just by looking at the condition of their hair.”
Her ambitions are to use her Playmate status as a springboard for her modeling career. She said she’s a sucker for a tall-dark-handsome combo – "and confidence is a must!" Her turn-offs are men "who are unwilling to learn from their mistakes and who are self-centered and over-bearing. Could you be any more obnoxious?”
Shelby Chesnes thinks being a sexy woman is “all about being comfortable in your own skin and letting your authentic self shine through!” She thinks of herself as a “modern girl, but I guess my heart is still old-fashioned when it comes to relationships.”
Her dream date is an “evening that starts with a romantic dinner, moves to a hot tub and ends with a sunrise. Boom chicka wow wow!”
