After being named the 2011 Playboy Playmate of the Year, Hope Dworaczyk has ventured into the app game. She has a new Rating Game app available for the Apple iPhone that allows anyone to upload and rate photos for others to rate. She talks about the new app and playing games at the Playboy mansion in this exclusive interview.
Complex: What do think guys will like about the Rating Game app?
Hope Dworaczyk: The reason I think it’s fun is because you can be sitting at dinner or at a friend’s house and you can upload a photo and they automatically rate you. Then you can decide that you want to play a joke on a friend, and you can upload the person sitting next to you’s photo and give them a low rating and then have me rate them on joke mode and we’ll say all kinds of funny things about the photo. You can put it off the joke mode and make sure that you have a high rating for anybody else in the room, and then keep the low rating for them. It’s a fun thing to do.
How into technology are you? What gadgets do you like?
I’m all Apple’d out, I guess. I have the desktop, the laptop, the iPhone and iPad. I even have iPods, even though I have the iPhone too. I guess I’m somewhat tech savvy.
What has Twitter and Facebook opened up for you as a new way to connect with your fans?
With my public Facebook page and Twitter they can communicate directly with me. I actually read everything they write, and when they tag me on something I always see it. Before there was Twitter or Facebook fan pages, you would send fan mail and never know if I read it. It’s like you’re texting me, because I get it in on my phone and I read it or I laugh. I get really funny things sent to me all the time. I think that that’s the best part.
