Olivia Munn is attractive…and an Oklahoman.

This is cool.  Thanks to a reader tip, we have learned that Olivia Munn- host of G4’s Attack of the Show and the hot chick who graces this month’s cover of Playboy – is an Oklahoman.  We know this because she was born here.  From the always reliable Wikipedia:

Olivia Munn was born in Oklahoma to Sam and Kim Munn. She is of Chinese descent on her mother’s side and of Caucasian descent on her father’s. When Munn was two, her mother re-married to a man in the Air Force.  Although the family relocated many times, Munn was predominantly raised in the Shinjuku district of Tokyo, Japan, where the military assigned her stepfather. During this time, she had appeared in a number of local theater productions, and later became a model within the Japanese fashion industry. She also attended the University of Oklahoma, majoring in journalism and minoring in Japanese and dramatic arts.

Yep.  The girl who graces this month’s cover of Playboy went to the journalism school at OU.  That’s pretty cool, because it means that there has to be some “before she was famous” Olivia Munn photos improving some Lost Ogle reader’s dormant MySpace page or hard drive.  If you have these pictures – or know where they are – they should be emailed to TheLostOgle at gmail dot com immediately!  It’s the right thing to do.

Anyway, being the Internet cool guys that we are, you would think we’d be more familiar with Ms. Munn’s body of work.  But unfortunately we’re not.  Until today, I thought G4 was just an obscure cable network that showed Cheaters reruns all day long.  Clark Matthews has claimed to watch Attack of the Show a couple of times, but that was only to get Leisure Suit Larry gaming tips.  You may not have known it, but Clark Matthews is one of the world’s premier Leisure Suit Larry gamers.  Surprised, aren’t you?

Now that we know who Olivia is and that we may have ogled her at some bar on Campus Corner, I think it’s safe to say that we’ll watch more G4 TV.  I also think it’s safe to say that we have an early favorite for Ogle Madness III.  Think about it.  Olivia is a female, hot and even has some pictures of her in a pink bikini floating around the Internet …only without the bikini top (kinda NSFW)! That’s almost unfair!  I can only think of one way that the Lauren Richardsons, Amy McRees and Kristin Chenoweths of the world can compete with this and it involves tastefully done photography, soft lighting and Photoshop.  Fortunately, The Lost Ogle offers all of these services for free.

  1. Believe it or not, she is my second cousin on my mom’s side. I feel kinda dirty looking at her pics. But I keep looking…

  2. This story ran across RDK’s virtual desk last week. But we also discovered she wasn’t going to be naked and we lost all interest. We’re sleazy like that.

    From USA Today:

    Sure Olivia Munn wanted to be on the cover of Playboy. But the magazine also wanted her to be nude inside the upcoming July/August issue, says the co-host of G4’s Attack of the Show.

    “It was an immediate ‘No’,” she says. “Unless you are like 40 and you have to prove something I don’t think it’s necessary for me to be naked. I just thought it would be a total sellout on my part. But it became like my favorite thing to tell everybody that I got the offer.”

    Two weeks after originally popping the question, the magazine called back. “My publicist said, ‘They want you to do it non-nude and it would be their first two-month issue.”

  3. Well invite your second cousin to town for some B-Dubs and OU football. Don’t Bogart that connection.

  4. Hey, second cousin is still legal. Even first cousin is legal in California and New York, but not in Kentucky or West Virginia. Go figure.

  5. Because I’ve actually been a fan of Ms. Munn’s for a while now, and just assumed you didn’t like her, DIBS ON THE Q&A!!

  6. There’s one part of her story I find a bit odd. It says her stepfather was assigned by the military to Tokyo’s Shinjuku District. Anyone that is familiar with Tokyo realizes this is akin to the military assigning you to Greenwich Village. I can see military guys hanging out around the streetwalkers of Shin-Okubo but not actually working there.

  7. PCN alum here. Unless she skipped two grades at some point, she should be at least 29. Cute girl but there were many better in our class, but isn’t that how it usually works out with girls in Playboy.
