I’m A Celebrity 2014: Kendra Wilkinson – Who Exactly Is She?!

She will be WILD.

Every year the I’m A Celebrity… line-up always throws in one American contestant who has everybody doing their finest Nikki Grahame ‘WHO IS SHE’ impression.

And this year is absolutely no different, with Kendra Wilkinson being somewhat of an enigma to much of the British public, but never fear – we have had a bit of a snoop and are here to bring you all that there is to know about the blonde bombshell:

1. She Was One Of Hugh Hefner’s Girlfriends

A nineteen-year-old Kendra met Playboy tycoon Hugh Hefner when she was hired to wander around his 78th birthday party totally nude aside from some painted on accessories.

Ever classy.

Hugh took a bit of a liking to her and asked Kendra to be one of his three ‘girlfriends’, and so she moved into the famous mansion and appeared on reality TV series The Girls Next Door alongside Hugh’s other girlfriends, Holly Madison and Bridget Marquardt, where she was dubbed ‘THE WILD ONE’.

2. Her Sex Tape Was Leaked

After finding fame on the reality TV circuit, poor Kendra was left ‘humiliated’ when a sex tape that she made with her high school boyfriend, aged just eighteen, leaked onto the internet. 

Not cool.

At the time, Kendra said that she was really “embarrassed” of the tape but came back all guns blazing.

3. She Is Married

Five years after moving in with Hef and the Playboy bunnies, Kendra met her future husband, Hank Baskett and nabbed her own reality TV show, the very creatively named: Kendra.

The first series of the show followed the busty blonde as she planned her Wedding to the footballer, eventually saying ‘I do’ in the actual Playboy mansion.


However, sad news alert – since being confirmed for the I’m A Celeb line-up Kendra has confirmed that she is taking a break from her hubby of five years after reports of him having an affair with a transsexual model emerged.


Kendra is hoping to have some ‘thinking space’ while in the Aussie outback.

4. She Is A Mum Of Two

Yes! She may be a young and wild Playboy star but Kendra is also a loving mum of two.

Her first child with husband Hank, aptly named Hank Jnr, was born in December 2009, just five months after her wedding, and earlier this year Kendra gave birth to a little girl, who she named Alijah. 


We wonder how she is going to cope with being away from them in the jungle?

5. She Is Pretty Experienced In Reality TV

Kendra may not have munched on kangaroo anus and ostrich eyes before, but the reality side of I’m A Celeb will probably be a doddle because she has had a TON of experience when it comes to cameras following her around.

As well as starring in The Girls Next Door and Kendra, the personality has appeared on Kendra On Top, Dancing With The Stars, Celebrity Wife Swap, and… Erm… MTV’s Celebrity Rap Superstar…

Gee, we wonder why that show didn’t catch on over here?!

All in all, as well as providing the classic ‘showering in a bikini under a waterfall’ eye candy, it looks as though Kendra is going to be a whole bundle of fun…

… So long as she’s not too down in the dumps about those cheating rumours that is.

Is it too soon to say that we kind of love her already?
