Kara Friedman
At times this month it seemed she was running away with the crown. Her modeling photos posted onto Playboy's Miss Social website, captured one million votes. Then two. Then -- as of last weekend -- crept right up to the three-million mark.

But none of that matters now. This week nineteen-year-old Kara Friedman's vote total is reset to zero as she competes with eleven other finalists for the title of "Miss May" in Playboy's monthly non-nude competition. Yes, sorry to disappoint, fellas. Friedman keeps it clean. Seductive, but clean. (See photos below.) But more importantly, the graduate of Valley Park High School is counting on her hometown friends -- word up, St. Louis! -- to again rally for the cause and vote for her.

"Everyday I've gained new support and found people that really want to help," she says of her success so far in the Miss Social competition. "There are so many people to credit, but not enough hours in the day to thank every single person who is supporting me and voting."

Should she win, Friedman will be off to Los Angeles on Playboy's dime for a photo shoot and tour of Hugh Hefner's mansion. It would actually be Friedman's second trip to Hollywood courtesy of Playboy. Last summer Friedman accompanied St. Louisan Ashley Salazar to L.A. after Salazar was named Playboy's Miss Social for June 2012.

Playboy uses the Miss Social contest to discover new talent for its magazine and related media. In just her first year of modeling Friedman has already appeared as eye candy in lad mags such as Coed and Manmade. If she wins the Miss Social crown this month, will we next see Friedman in the pages of Playboy? Perhaps. But not every bit of her.

"I personally made a choice to not shoot full nude, and probably never will," Friedman tells Daily RFT. "It is a very beautiful style of modeling, but it's just not for me. I love that this ["Miss Social"] is a non-nude contest and gives us a chance to show what we have, and how beautiful we are with clothes on. I do shoot implied nudes, which for those who don't know, is a style where you are nude, but you're creatively covering the important parts. It's a style that Playboy does use."

Friedman earned a first-round bye in the playoffs that began Monday. Cast your vote for her in Round No. 2 at playboymisssocial.com.

Kara you can't obviously think all of your city would be behind you, you do realize how religious St. Louis is right? That's just not something a good catholic girl should be doing...I however don't care, although I agree out of all of your pics I've seen this one does not do you justice.

She's a cute girl but not playboy material. She looks like she's 16....and not in a good way.

I don't think most of you would enjoy being judged so harshly. If those are the nasty, negative things rattling around in your brain, then I suggest taking some time to reflect. Constructive criticism is one thing but the name calling is really low.

Did you all just come from the Player Haterz Ball? God damn jealousy is such an ugly thing. Congratulations on the article Kara!

Hmmm that's interesting. She looks so pretty in some of the other pics, just a weird choice.

She posted the image on Twitter and Facebook. She must have liked it enough to share it. It is a lesson for all aspiring models - only post your post works. You do not need to post images from every shoot. The best looking women can look terrible with the wrong lighting, and a photographer from the wrong angle. Being photogenic is only part of the battle.

Wow...whoever posted this article with this pic must have something against her because she looks way better in almost every single other photo!
