April 8, 2015 | Posted by Steve Gustafson

Alexandra Tyler, a 20-year-old model from suburban Sacramento, CA, is Playboy magazine’s April 2015 Playmate of the Month. The Spanish and German beauty is featured in a 10-page pictorial in the magazine’s April 2015 Sex & Music issue (on newsstands and iPlayboy.com now, with additional photos and video available at www.playboy.com/alexandra-tyler.

The former high school cheerleader and straight-A student initially had plans to become a special-ed teacher until her mom convinced her to attend an open casting call in Los Angeles. A modeling agency signed Alexandra on the spot, and she accelerated her studies to finish high school in three years.

After moving to L.A., Alexandra landed campaigns with L’Oréal and Volcom and was turned on to the idea of modeling for Playboy by longtime friend Miss January 2015 Brittny Ward. “I bought a subscription and became obsessed with becoming a Playmate,” she said. “I love how empowered these girls are.”

Alexandra was awesome enough to answer some questions for 411wrestling.com about the photoshoot, her career, and much more!

Steve Gustafson: Hi Alexandra! First, congratulations for being named Playboy’s Miss April! Second, thanks for taking time to answer some questions for 411wrestling.com! To start off, what got you into modelling?

Alexandra Tyler: I always had dreamed of becoming a model but never quite thought it was really possible! My mom always believed in me and gave me that extra push I needed! She took me to an agency open call and I’ve been signed ever since!

Steve Gustafson: Very cool. What was your first shoot?

Alexandra Tyler: My first job was with Bebe.

Steve Gustafson: Nice! So you just jumped right in with a big name. How did you get involved with Playboy?

Alexandra Tyler: Kind of funny actually! I had received an email from someone claiming they worked with Playboy and wanted to book me. I forwarded the email to Playboy Photo Editor Stephanie Morris and she told me that it was a fake email but that she’s the real deal and they wanted to meet me!

Steve Gustafson: Wow! That’s pretty awesome. So we should thanks spammers for you! What was your reaction when they told you that you’d be Miss April?

Alexandra Tyler: I was beyond thrilled. After I tested with Playboy and was awaiting their phone call to know if I was approved or not by Hef, I was so anxious. I wanted to be apart of the Playboy family so badly! So when I was told I was going to be Miss April, I was so happy

Steve Gustafson: Of course! Who was the first person you called?

Alexandra Tyler: My mommy.

Steve Gustafson: So sweet. So how was your photoshoot for the pictorial? Were you nervous?

Alexandra Tyler: My photoshoot was amazing but a lot of hard work! We shot for about 13 hours and I was pooped by the end of it! I was so nervous! The whole ride there I had no music playing was just trying to pump myself up. Then when I got to set, I just let all my nerves go and was ready to rock it!

Steve Gustafson: It shows! Great pictorial. How has your life changed, if at all, since becoming Miss April?

Alexandra Tyler: My issue just came out about a week ago and it has been so exciting for me. I’ve never done radio interviews before and I’ve been doing a lot of those, so that’s been fun. I’ve also noticed a lot of interesting looks from random men I walk by.

Steve Gustafson: I bet! What’s next for you? Any projects we should be on the look out for?

Alexandra Tyler: I’m a full time model so I’m always shooting new things! Now with becoming a Playmate, so many doors have opened and I can’t wait to experience all these new opportunities.

Steve Gustafson: We’re a pop culture website that covers TV and Movies. What was the last movie you saw in the theater?

Alexandra Tyler: Just last night I saw Get Hard!

Steve Gustafson: Nice. Are there any TV shows that you MUST watch?

Alexandra Tyler: I’m addicted to Scandal. I literally want to be Olivia Pope. She’s an incredible woman.

Steve Gustafson: There you go! What advice do you have for future Playboy Playmates?
