Kara Monaco BIO
Since Kara Monaco appeared last August in our “Women Behind Bars” pictorial featuring sexy female bartenders, guys wandering near her watering hole in Orlando, Florida have been unusually thirsty. “People come in every night wanting me to sign something for them,” she says. “The owners loved it, and while I thought it was sweet, it got a little overwhelming.”
Miss Monaco, who describes herself as “shy and reserved until you get to know me,” found a way to deflect some of the attention. “I have a co-worker who looks enough like me that people think that we’re sisters,” she says. “At one point, when someone came in and asked, ‘Are you Kara Monaco, that girl from Playboy?’ I said, ‘Oh no, she’s right over there.’ She got to play my body double for several weeks. It was so funny. There’s lots of guys out there who think they met me, but actually haven’t,” she says.
Such shyness, however, is seldom more than a temporary condition with Kara Monaco. Though the petite 22-year-old starts out quiet, her emerald eyes light up before long, and her friendly laugh turns into an exuberant cackle. This is especially true once you get her going about life in the Sunshine State. Tourists, she says, are easy to spot “because they’re always sunburned”- a detail she first noticed while fulfilling a tour of duty working in Mickey Mouse’s playground. “I dressed as seven different characters”. Kara also danced in the Disney World parades, a not unexpected distinction on a resume that includes years of dancing and gymnastics and a stint coaching a competitive dance team. “It was a jazz-funk, hip-hop kind of thing,” she says. “That’s what I do best.”
One thing you won’t find Miss Monaco doing much is hanging out in bars after work. “After being in that environment all day I’m done with partying,” she says. “I love going to Miami, where these pictures were taken, but the city is a little crazy for my taste. I’m more of a homebody now.”.
