`Bachelor' Babe Shuns `Playboy'

Friday, February 19, 2010 17:20 GMT

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Bachelor babe Gia Allemand may have bared her heart on TV, but she refuses to bare her bod.

The sexy swimsuit model, who was booted from The Bachelor this past Monday (Feb. 15), has stripped down to her bathing suit for Maxim magazine before, but that’s where she draws the line.

If asked, Allemand says she would “never” do a spread in Playboy because her loved ones would flip.

She says, “My family would disown me. And I love my dad, [so no way].”

Though she’s a regulation hottie now, that wasn’t always the case.

Allemand was a geek in high school who was constantly bullied by other kids, which is the root of her insecurity.

Since appearing on TV, none of her old school bullies have reached out to apologize, probably because they don’t recognize her.

The Bachelor: Women Tell All special airs Monday (Feb. 22) on ABC.
