One of the models who exposed herself during Game 5 of the World Series in America has revealed the stunt cost more than $120,000 NZD and was nearly a year in the making.
The risqué flashing stunt from Julia Rose, Lauren Summer and Kayla Lauren made worldwide headlines and drew major attention to their X-rated digital magazine Shagmag — and it was far from a spur-of-the moment decision.
In an interview with Complex Rose said the cost of tickets for the entourage amounted to approximately $US80,000, (NZ$125,200), but even though she and her partners in crime have been banned from all future Major League Baseball games, the publicity gained from their brazen act was worth it.
"It (baseball) is one of the best sports with the most coverage. You know where the cameras are most of the time. Personally, I'm a huge football fan, but when it comes to football, you know it's almost impossible to get on camera.
"So we knew the cameras and where they'd be, and it's the kind of just go for it type thing with baseball."
Rose and Co. were warned by officials about trying any funny business when they took their seats but it didn't deter them.
"We were detained for about two hours, and that's when they came down and handed us the letter basically stating that we're banned from that stadium for five years and all MLB events indefinitely.
"We thought maybe a fine. Me, I honestly didn't expect to be banned from life from all MLB events. I did not expect that one. But, I mean, I guess it comes with this."
Addressing why they exposed themselves, Shagmag's brand executive Summer said she hoped to raise awareness about breast cancer
"To clarify, yes we knew we would get banned, yes the (banishment) letters are real, and yes, I would do it again lol. More importantly, subscribe to @SHAGMAG_ because the proceeds go directly to women with breast cancer to pay for their medical bills," Summer tweeted.
"Our proceeds from @SHAGMAG_ will be going to women with breast cancer and paying off their medical bills. Meeting with them in person and doing whatever we can to help with the platform we have."
