She is of Czech, German, Polish, Swedish and Dutch ancestry.
She was chosen as Playboy's Playmate of the Month in May 2002.
You might see her on red carpet - she still does some modeling, and makes appearances at promotional events around Los Angeles - but for the most part, Christi is a single mom and spends her time with her son.
After graduating with honors at eighteen, Christi was featured in a Special Edition pictorial, which led to a Playmate test shoot in Chicago.
She was born on August 22, 1980 in Baltimore, Maryland, United States.
She likes older men, and believes in the ideals of love, marriage and family - a tall order for most, but not for a girl like Christi Shake.
