Sara Jean Underwood (born March 26, 1984) is an American model, television host, and actress who was chosen as the Playmate of the Month for the July 2006 issue of Playboy magazine and later became Playmate of the Year in 2007. She is a former host of Attack of the Show! on G4.
Underwood was born in Portland, Oregon. She graduated from Scappoose High School in Scappoose, Oregon in 2002. She has been a student at Oregon State University and Portland State University.
She was a schoolmate of American football player Derek Anderson. Her first job was assisting in sales of heavy construction equipment. She worked in the Beaverton, Oregon branch of the Hooters chain of restaurants.
Underwood first appeared in Playboy in its Girls of the Pac-10 pictorial in the October 2005 issue. She was featured on the cover, holding a football and clad only in a body painted rendering of an Oregon State Beavers football jersey and matching bikini briefs. She next appeared in the magazine in July 2006, as the Playmate of the Month. When she became Playmate of the Year in June 2007, her prize included a Mini Cooper convertible. She was the first Miss July to receive the title, although she herself said, “I didn’t think I was pretty enough”. In March 2008, Playboy magazine ranked her at #25 on their “25 Hottest Playboy Celebrities” list.
Underwood appeared in episode #2 of the E! network’s series The Girls Next Door, as a Playmate hoping to have her test shoot taken at Playboy Studio West. Subsequently, Playboy featured her as Miss July 2006. She appeared in several more episodes of The Girls Next Door.
On June 7, 2007, a group of Oregon State University women’s studies students created a poster celebrating Underwood’s selection as Playboy’s 2007 Playmate of the Year, and posted it outside Bexel Hall, where it remained in place for only a few hours before Oregon State University staff took it down. The poster embraced the theme and the style of the “Achievement” posters that line Campus Way at the university. The poster read, “Sara Jean: First OSU Beaver Playmate of the Year, Playboy June ’07, OSU Centerfold, People, Ideas, Innovation.” The mention of her as the “first” Playmate of the Year from OSU was actually incorrect; she was preceded by Jodi Ann Paterson, the Playmate of the Year for 2000.
Film and television work
Underwood appears as a pirate wench in the 2007 film Epic Movie, along with fellow Playmates Qiana Chase, Irina Voronina and Jillian Grace. Underwood appeared as a playmate in the 2008 comedy, House Bunny, along with fellow playmates and in 2009 was in the film The Telling with Bridget Marquardt and Holly Madison, and as herself in Miss March. In 2013 Underwood was cast in the lead role in the horror thriller Deadly Weekend (also known as Zellwood).
She appeared on the wedding episode of Kendra where it was announced at Kendra Wilkinson‘s bachelorette party that Underwood had undergone breast augmentation surgery. Later, on The Howard Stern Show, Underwood confirmed that she had breast implants.
Underwood has also worked in television as a presenter. She worked as a “fight jock” or continuity announcer for the Blackbelt TV cable network. In 2009 she co-hosted five episodes of G4’s Attack of the Show, filling in for a vacationing Olivia Munn. She co-hosted episodes in 2010. In 2011, she was a substitute host and one of the regular presenters of “The Feed”.
An avid practitioner of yoga, she competed in the 8th Kunoichi competition in Japan, known in the U.S. as Women of Ninja Warrior. She won her first stage heat after gaining a big lead on three Japanese contestants that had more pedigreed backgrounds in athletics. She failed on the second stage when she misjudged the second step of the Dancing Stones and fell.
After modeling in advertising for VictoryPoker.net and playing in charity poker tournaments, she joined their team of professional poker players.

Arbour is a former cheerleader for the Toronto Raptors of the National Basketball Association. As an actress, Arbour appeared in Howie Do It, and Silent But Deadly. Arbour’s single “Bang Bang” was released on April 30, 2013. On June 18, 2015, her single and music video to “Fun Revolution” was released and was the first Periscope music video to debut. In April 2015, Arbour was nominated as a finalist for “Best Comedian” for the Shorty Awards however lost to Hannibal Buress.
“Dear Fat People”
In September 2015, Arbour became the subject of controversy when she posted a viral video on her YouTube channel titled “Dear Fat People.” Critics argue the video endorses fat shaming. The video was temporarily unavailable on YouTube, over claims that it violated the YouTube terms of service, but was later restored.
Arbour was the subject of both public and celebrity criticism, with model Ashley Graham labelling her comments as “downright disgusting”. Director Pat Mills fired Arbour from an upcoming movie after seeing the video and was quoted via several sources, “I’m gay. I was bullied a lot as a kid. I am no stranger to ridicule and loneliness… It’s fat-phobic and awful. It went on for over six minutes. I felt like I had been punched in the gut. I was so upset I was shaking like Shelley Duvall in The Shining,”. On September 10, 2015, Arbour, via Twitter denied ever having any form of involvement in the film.
Soon after the video, Arbour was fired from her job where she was a choreographer for an anti-bullying video for kids. The director of the film she was hired to work on said it “made me never want to see her again.”.
On September 16, 2015, Arbour appeared on The View to defend her actions in the “Dear Fat People” video, stating while on the show “that video was made to offend people…it’s just satire,” and that the video wasn’t supposed to be taken seriously. TIME cited an interview stating, “Arbour doesn’t see her comments as bullying, but rather an intense form of truth-telling”. Arbour was quoted defending her actions, “I find seeing someone’s head being blown off offensive,” she said. “I find children starving in a country with more than enough food offensive. I find women’s bodies being mutilated for religious purposes, that is offensive to me. But words and satire I don’t find offensive.”
Domestic abuse allegations
On January 11, 2016, YouTube personality Matthew Santoro posted “My Abuse Story”, a video in which he claimed he had been in a physically and emotionally abusive relationship with Arbour, although he did not name her in the video. The video was originally set to private after Santoro ended the relationship but was accidentally made public. He decided to keep it that way after receiving support from fans. Santoro claimed he was manipulated into isolating himself from his friends and family because of Arbour’s jealousy, and was later even punched in the face. Arbour responded via a YouTube post stating “Heard the little bitch I dumped months ago is still trying to use me to get attention on his vlog channel. Ew.”
In 2012, Deveaux was cast as Casey Anthony in Prosecuting Casey Anthony, a television movie based on death of Caylee Anthony, though the part was ultimately recast. The same year her performance in the television film The Phantoms garnered praise from The Globe and Mail reviewer John Doyle who remarked, “Outstanding is Deveaux as Tess, the most complex and troubled of the teenagers. Deveaux (last seen in Less Than Kind) is luminous, her pale face subtly registering every hurt, every worry and every insult that comes her way…” In 2014, she starred in the Syfy original movie Mutant World. In 2015, she played a prominent guest role on an episode of Rookie Blue playing a dangerous prison inmate.
