Who is Heather Rae Young?

Heather was born in 1987 in Anaheim, California. Before becoming a highly sought-after realtor, Heather worked various jobs ranging from pilates instructor to Playboy model. She credits much of her present-day success to her Playboy model past. She was the adult magazine's Miss February in 2010. According to House Beautiful, she posed nude for the magazine several times. In an interview, she described her experience of being a model for the adult magazine as 'gratifying'. She said, "If I hadn’t posed for Playboy, I wouldn’t have met the people who led me to where I am now. Playboy got me used to being in front of crowds and being good on camera."

She is also a co-host of the podcast 'Flashbacks' with fellow reality star Jessica Hall of 'Kendra' fame. Although Heather is famous on her own accord, her relationship with Tarek has put her under further spotlight.
