Karissa Shannon is an American glamour model and Playboy Playmate with an estimated net worth of $200 thousand. Along with her twin sister Kristina, she rose to fame when they were both chosen by Hugh Hefner as two of his three girlfriends in 2008.
With their status, they became part of the television series The Girl Next Door on E! network. Their appearance on the show has attracted 2.4 million viewers which made it the most-watched season premiere it has ever made. The two then appeared as Miss July and Miss August 2009 in the combined “summer issue” of Playboy magazine.
In January 2010, Karissa and Kristina decided to move out of Hefner’s mansion so they could pursue their career but they still remained on the show.
