2009 Penthouse Pet of the Year, Taya Parker

The 2009 Penthouse Pet of the Year is Taya Parker.

It was going to take a lot to best Mississippi-native Erica Ellyson, who we showed you last year.

You can be the judge. Parker was actually on the cover of Penthouse in January 2008 when we showed you Ellyson. It looks like she beat out 11 other ladies throughout the rest of the year.

Parker is 28 years young, 5’0″, 32D-23-33. She’s from Ohio and likes to live the quiet life when she’s at home. But she says that she never turns down a martini and loves her stiletto heals.

“I’m a perky, small-town daddy’s girl with a little attitude. I love to laugh. I always give people second chances (and sometimes third). And I’m always the life of the party,” she says on her website. “For me, there is no such thing as the ideal man. I like a guy who goes after what he wants, who has a goal and ambition. If I’m the goal … make it happen!”
