Our 2017 vote has officially come to a close, and before we meet the winner, we decided to take a long look back at our Cybergirl of the Year 2016, Gia Ramey-Gay. On location in Baja California Sur, Gia joined Holly Randall and her crew for three full days of sun, sand and of course, amazing photoshoots, and we’ve opened the vault to bring you this very special behind the scenes feature. “My Cybergirl of the Year shoot was amazing,” remembers Gia. “For my first look, I shot on the beach with a cute vintage bus. Then we shot a sexy, sandy look on the shore, but the wind was so strong it blew tons of sand in my eyes!” Holly remembers Gia as a consummate professional, who braved the elements without a stitch of clothing to get the job done well—of course, we’d expect nothing less of Miss Ramey-Gay, whose sense of adventure never fails her. “Holly is so much fun to work with because she keeps you on your toes,” says Gia. “You never know what’s going to happen! I always have a great time on set with her. On this trip I ate crickets, got attacked by bees and almost adopted a dog!” You’ll have to watch the next two episodes to see what happens—go behind the scenes with our incredible CGOY 2016, Gia Ramey-Gay, right here on Playboy Plus.
