Due to the overwhelming success of her appearance on the cover of Playboy with actor Seth Rogan, Hugh Hefner awarded Hope with the honor of being named the 2010 Playmate of the Year. This appearance on the June, 2010 cover gave her the historic distinction of being Playboy’s first 3-D centerfold.
Hope also served as the popular host of Toronto based “Inside Fashion,” a weekly beauty lifestyle program that broadcast throughout Canada on E! Entertainment Television and Global TV. Dworaczyk was on the ground floor of the show’s development and directed the show’s focus towards coverage of international fashion shows, backstage preparations, interviews with top tier fashion photographers and designers and other integral power players in fashion.An advocate of Best Buddies, an organization that creates one-to-one friendships and employment for people with intellectual or developmental disabilities, Hope faced off in the boardroom on the 4th season of America’s guiltiest pleasure, Donald Trump’s “Celebrity Apprentice,” on NBC to raise money for the cause. Hope led the women’s team ASAP into victory against the men’s team, Backbone, in a challenge for Omaha Steaks winning $20,000 for her charity, Best Buddies. Hope now divides her time between Los Angeles, New York, Toronto and Europe.
Dworaczyk appeared on the cover of the April 2009 issue of Playboy magazine together with Seth Rogen. Her centerfold pictorial was photographed by Stephen Wayda. She was later selected as the 2010 Playmate of the Year. Her PMOY pictorial was in the June 2010 issue of the magazine which included a 3-D fold out image of her. She has since done runway work, toured for labels such as Versace, hosted Inside Fashion in Canada and appeared as a contestant on The Celebrity Apprentice.

I chose to play for them because it’s a great cause.”.
