Playboy playmate granted O-1
 
Reuters article.

Except... it's not a visa. Canadians are exempt from the visa requirement, they just get the I-129 approved by USCIS and show the I-797 to CBP.

An interesting article.

Couldn't agree more with this quote from it:
"The O-1 is one of the few visas we support," said Kim Berry, a spokesman for the Programmers Guild, which favors the suspension of the H-1B program. "When they need to bring in the best and the brightest and the entrepreneurs, that's the only visa that helps America."
