Ariana Gradow, not ex-Playboy bunny Barbi Benton, star of MTV Extreme Cribs ep (VIDEO)

In our preview of the latest MTV Extreme Cribs episode, we focused on the creator of the Aspen home the program features: ex-Playboy bunny and Hef hutch minder Barbi Benton. But the show's intro doesn't mention the Playboy connection -- or even Benton's name. Instead, the focus is on her daughter, 23-year old Ariana Gradow, who serves as our guide to the insane, copper-plated, multi-pod monument to mountain excess. Check out the entire episode below.
