Penthouse Magazine named Jenna Rose its 2012 Pet of the Year. She is featured on the January cover and in a nude pictorial in the magazine that goes on sale Thursday.

As Pet of the Year, Rose will be a representative for the magazine featured at appearances, in videos and at photo shoots. She will be a part of Penthouse advertisements and commercials for their products.

Rose was previously featured on the cover of the magazine in October 2011.

I'm so excited for the upcoming year and look forward to all the opportunities I will have to travel representing Penthouse, meet my fans and make new fans, Rose said. Being a Penthouse Pet has already changed my life...and being chosen as Pet of the Year is just the cherry on top!

At the annual Pet of the Year party at The Roxbury in Hollywood, Rose will officially be presented with a diamond-encrusted Penthouse key necklace on Sat., Dec. 17.

The award dates back to the 1970s and the most recent Penthouse Pets of the Year include Nikki Benz in 2011 and Taylor Vixen in 2010.

The release of the Penthouse Magazine follows a week of buzz surrounding Playboy Magazine's January/February issue, which features Lindsay Lohan on its cover and in a nude pictorial.
