BEST CAREER MOVE - 2000
Yes, we know it was all the way back in December 1998 that Erica, Nicole, and Jaclyn Dahm, University of Minnesota students from Jordan, took it all off in triplicate for Playboy. But this was the year the 22-year-old identical sisters parlayed their playmate status into something (nearly) resembling a show-biz career. Having moved to Los Angeles last summer, the buxom blondes have popped up in such prestigious programs as Battle Dome, a syndicated gladiator/glamazon fight show; The Late Late Show With Craig Kilborn; Norm; and Boy Meets World. They've also signed on to play robotic lifeguards in Son of a Beach, Howard Stern's new show on cable channel FX. And if the acting thing doesn't work out, their fame has already been cemented for eternity: They ranked No. 66 in the magazine's 100 "Centerfolds of the Century."
