Howard announced the start of the Penthouse Pet Pageant and the first contestant, Cali Taylor (Miss February 2008), a pot-smoking lesbian who occasionally dates guys, came in and got naked for the crew. Howard was impressed: "Those are really natural boobs aren't they? Wow. Both nipples are pierced." When asked to reveal a secret about herself, Cali told the crew that she lost her virginity at seven to her female friend/babysitter (who was 10): "We did it all the time. Everything." For the talent portion, she played the violin...badly. The next contestant, Shawna Lenee, Miss July 2008 (and also a porn star), immediately planted a kiss on Cali. She then got some laughs by congratulating Howard on his recent nuptials as she was stripping down: "I think marriage is a beautiful thing." When asked to name the century's greatest invention, she cited the "wireless reading devices," as they save trees. Shawna then told a joke for the talent portion, and it fell flat, however, she did earn points for playing with herself while she bombed.
