Aside from her modelling and acting projects, she’s also invested a lot of her resources towards businesses. As she continues her career, it is expected that her wealth will also continue to increase.
Early Life and Education
Shelby grew up in Jupiter, which is an area known for being on the beachside. She grew up accustomed to showing off herself in swimwear, which would help build her confidence later on when she became a model. Her mother was very passionate about photography, and she was often the subject of these photos while they were at the beach.
Eventually, her mother would be the one who encouraged her to pursue a modelling career, and was not against her posing for “Playboy” magazine. She played a lot of sports at a young age and even became a part of a competitive cheerleading team during high school. After matriculating from high school, she enrolled at Florida Atlantic University (FAU) to study psychology. FAU is a public university with one of five satellite campuses located in Jupiter, part of the State University System of Florida, and classified as a high research activity university. They offer over 170 undergraduate and graduate degree programs spanning its 10 colleges.
Modelling Endeavors and Rise to Fame
After completing her education, Chesnes became very focused towards making it big in modelling. She started working for several local brands, including a sunglasses company and car advertisements. However, it was not enough. At 20 years of age she decided to upload several of her best photos to the website of “Playboy” to try and get a chance to work for the magazine. “Playboy” is a lifestyle and entertainment magazine for men, best known for its feature of nude or semi-nude models also known as Playmates.
The magazine is noted for being one of the core factors of the sexual revolution. It has since grown into an enterprise with presence in various mediums and industries. It also has numerous nation-specific versions of its magazine available worldwide. Aside from models, they also feature interviews of notable figures such as economists, politicians, athletes, artists, and many more. A month after posting photos, Shelby was contacted by the company and offered a test shoot, so went to Los Angeles, and after the shoot waited a couple of months before finally getting her response – on her 21st birthday, she was offered a deal with “Playboy”.
Magazine Appearances and Acting
With support from her family, she continued with the opportunity and was selected as “Playboy” magazine’s Miss July 2012, featured on the issue’s centerfold taken by famous photographer Stephen Wayda. Since then, more opportunities have come her way as her fame increased significantly thanks to her debut feature. Two years later, she was featured once more as a social star for “Playboy”, and was also included in the Playboy Swimsuit Calendar during the same year. She has now modelled for other companies, and set up her own spray-tanning business.
