Fresno’s Carly Lauren in Carl’s Jr. TV commercial


The latest attractive model to star in a Carl’s Jr. hamburger commercial is Carly Lauren, Playboy’s Miss October 2013, who grew up in Fresno and the foothills just north of Madera Ranchos.

Lauren can be seen in TV commercials for the Most American Thickburger, a hamburger available in 1/3 and 1/2 pound sizes that not only include a beef patty but is stacked with a hot dog and potato chips. She bites into the sandwich among fireworks going off and patriotic music playing.

She was born in West Hills, but her family moved to Fresno when she was a child. During the sixth grade at Mountain View Christian School, her family moved to the edges of Madera County. She was active in sports, playing volleyball at Sierra High School.

Modeling was always Lauren’s plan, sparked by the 2013 issue of Playboy magazine that featured her in photos with a circus theme. While attending Fresno State, she was scouted by multiple agencies.

Other stars of Carl’s Jr. commercials include Kate Upton, Kim Kardashian, Heidi Klum, Jenny McCarthy, Padma Lakshmi, Audrina Patridge, Paris Hilton, Nina Agdal and Charlotte McKinney.
