Early Life and Career Beginnings
Very little is known about Amelia’s life before her rise to fame, as she has not talked about her family, childhood, and education. Prior to beginning work with “Playboy”, she was an artist and illustrator, often producing artworks on macabre or mythical creatures. Eventually, while she was out and about, she was noticed by scouts from “Playboy”, who invited her to have a feature in the magazine.
“Playboy” is a lifestyle and entertainment magazine created by Hugh Hefner, which became popular for its models – also known as Playmates – along with its nude or semi-nude centerfolds. The magazine is noted for its role in the sexual revolution, and is one of the world’s known brands. From its magazine beginnings, it has expanded to nearly every medium while also having nation-specific versions of their magazine almost worldwide. The magazine also conducts interviews with prominent figures, while also publishing short stories by novelists.
Talon was featured as 2011’s Co-ed of the week, which led to her eventually becoming Miss June 2012 in the magazine. During this period, her fame and income increased significantly, allowing her to pursue another passion of hers which is video gaming, and she started creating videos on the website YouTube. The video sharing website is one of the largest sources of video media on the internet with video clips, music videos, live streams, video blogs (vlogs), and many more available through the website. Channels are owned by individuals or companies which can earn advertising revenue through the Google AdSense program.
Users can upload, view, rate, share, and comment on videos while also having the option to subscribe to other users. Google acquired the website for $1.65 billion from three former PayPal employees. She did videos of her playing the game “World of Warcraft” (WOW), which is a massively multiplayer online role playing game (MMORPG) created by Blizzard Entertainment. It is set four years after the conclusion of “Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne” and has had seven major expansion packs released. It is the world’s most popular MMORPG by player count, and one of the highest grossing video game franchises of all time.
A lot of people became curious about Amelia’s work as a Playboy model, while also being heavily interested in her for her looks as well as her love for video games. Eventually, she was approached by friend and model Pamela Horton who started a YouTube channel called Gamer Next Door, which produced various game videos often featuring celebrities or personalities at the Playboy mansion, due to their connections. Some of the most popular videos include her cosplaying as Mario – Tomb Raider, and investigating the underground erotic activities in “World of Warcraft”.

However, the channel suddenly stopped creating content in 2017 without much of an announcement, leading many to conclude that the channel is now dead. After leaving Gamer Next Door, Amelia turned her attention towards video game streaming, as she was no longer doing any modelling work. She mainly broadcasted on the website Twitch, which helped her income grow. Twitch is a live platform focused on video game streaming, and one of the main hubs of eSports competitions.

For her personal life, not much is known about her romantic relationships, as Talon hasn’t talked a lot about this aspect of her life. She mentioned in one of her older YouTube videos that she was previously married, prior to her becoming a Playboy model, however, the marriage didn’t work out and they divorced. She continues to cater to her passion in video games, and consistently plays “World of Warcraft”.
