American model, comedian, actress, author and activist, Jennifer Ann “Jenny” McCarthy, has an estimated net worth of $14 million. Prior to entering the entertainment industry as a Playboy centerfold, McCarthy studied nursing at Southern Illinois University. While scrambling through her second year, she decided that modelling would be more lucrative and dropped out. Though she possesses a wholesome, athletic beauty, her figure proved too voluptuous for high fashion modelling, so she marched to the Chicago offices of Playboy, handed them photos of herself and ended up chosen Miss October 1993. She was subsequently elected Playmate of the Year. This, in turn, led to an erotic video pictorial. Despite her notoriety as a pinup girl, McCarthy’s initial bid for stardom in Hollywood met with failure, until her manager/boyfriend Ray Manzella doggedly convinced executives at MTV to audition her for the network’s game show “Singled Out”. She won the part of co-host and soon proved herself the show’s one redeeming feature. She made her film debut with a tiny role in “Things to Do in Denver When You’re Dead” (1995) and had her first major role in the abysmal comedy “The Stupids”. McCarthy parlayed her Playboy fame into a successful television and film acting career.
