The Girls Next Door's Bridget Marquardt has left the Playboy Mansion for even more beautiful surroundings. Her new series, Bridget's Sexiest Beaches, which premieres on the Travel Channel March 12, follows the bikini babe to the most titillating seaside destinations in the world. The 12 weekly episode series will begin with Australia and move on to Croatia and Jamaica, as well as feature stops in Fiji, Mexico, Costa Rica, Thailand, California (where Marquardt will reunite with Girls Next Door co-stars Holly Madison and Kendra Wilkinson) and Hawaii.
In each episode, Marquardt takes viewers on a tour of each unique coast's breathtaking scenery and tantalizing local flavors while revealing each region's beach biography, all while mixing in plenty of adventure with hedonistic fare.
It's more than just showing great beaches. I go on adventures. I meet with the locals. I try the local food. I learn the local dances and songs. I immerse myself in the culture, Marquardt said, It's sexy and fun, with all the crazy things that I'll do and all the fun outfits that I'll wear and all the exciting parties that I'll go to, but it's also learning about these places.
Tomorrow's premiere takes Marquardt to Australia, where she will experience a front-row seat at the Manly Beach Surf Lifesaving Carnival competition, boomerang lessons with the locals, camel rides, sand tobogganing and playing a bikini-clad meter maid for a day at Surfer's Paradise.
Whether she's taking flying lessons in Croatia, cave diving in Jamaica, or shark hugging in Ochos Rios, the peppy Playmate will experience all the coasts have to offer-always bikini-clad.
We are thrilled to work with Bridget as she embodies the sense of freedom and escape that truly captures the entertaining spirit of the Travel Channel, said Michael Klein, Senior Vice-President of content for Travel Channel. She has the unique ability to bring out the best in people while fully embracing the moment. Her humor, sense of adventure and passion for new experiences makes Bridget's Sexiest Beaches one of our most anticipated series this year.
Bridget's Sexiest Beaches premieres March 12 at 10 pm on the Travel Channel. Each week she will be blogging about her adventures at her Travel Channel Blog.
Marquardt isn't the only Girls Next Door alum moving onward and upward in the reality TV realm. This week Holly Madison replaced the injured Jewel on the premiere of ABC's Dancing with the Stars. Kendra Wilkinson is busy preparing for her wedding to Philadelphia Eagles stat Hank Baskett this June, and also has her own E! program, Kendra, slated to premiere that same month.
