Playmate August 2013 Bio: Get ready for your close-up with Playmate Val Keil, our Miss August 2013. A stunning brunette from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Val was worth her salt â€“ or anyway, the rim of her margarita â€“ as a bartender in Philly, but at 22, she wanted more than drinks in her mix. A rare and charming beauty, Val sent her shots to Playboy, and not a day later, she was invited to test for Playmate. For all the glamour of her new life in California, Val is down-to-earth, and she has more than fame and fortune on her mind. â€œI want to succeed in my Playmate endeavors,â€ she says, â€œbut eventually, Iâ€™d love to have a family.â€ Indeed, Miss Keil is more at home in faded jeans than an evening gown, and thatâ€™s part of her charm â€“ sheâ€™s beautiful, talented, and most of all, relatable, and weâ€™ve got a feeling that Val will succeed as a Playmate and beyond.
