"Playboy Shootout" is a reality competition series on the Playboy TV that gives 10 amateur photographers and 10 amateur models the chance to actually make it into the pages of Playboy magazine! What guy hasn't fantasized about being able to shoot Playmates for a living? What girl wouldn't want to be showcased in the magazine and launch a career that'll expose her to millions of fans. For both sides, taking a shot at "Playboy Shootout" was simply a no-brainer. The hard part was actually sifting through the mountains of incredible submissions and narrowing the final list down to 20. Playboy has gathered the crème de la crème and sent them to its Malibu mansion for an exercise in talent, drama, and winner-take-all dedication.

Imagine the feeling of meeting hostess (and former Playmate of the Year) Brande Roderick, getting mentored by legendary photographer Arny Freytag, and taking on challenges from a panel of judges that include Miss November '04 Cara Zavaleta, Playboy camera god Stephen Wayda, and an array of guest celebrities!  Each photographer and model will be paired into random teams and will have their skills put to the test with timed shoots that require creativity, rapid-fire instincts, and an overflow of sexiness! You'll never know what elements Brande will throw into the mix (motorcycles, bathtubs, fireballs), but if the teams can't turn them into absolutely stunning pictorials, they'll be shown the door!

And as with all cutthroat competitions, there is definitely a fair share of backstabbing, catfighting, and temper tantrums to keep things entertaining. Ultimately, only 1 photographer and 1 centerfold will get Hef's final thumbs up, and you will be seeing them in the magazine, in the media, and beyond.
