Brooke Burke is recognized worldwide as the hottest tour guide and adrenaline junkie on E! Entertainment Television's popular travel series, "Wild On," which is seen in 120 countries and in more than 400 million homes. After completing her "Wild On" assignment, Burke segued to hosting E!'s popular pop culture countdown series, "Rank." The show rated everything in entertainment, from Hollywood's sexiest stars to the best date movies. She most recently hosted a series of celebrity lifestyle specials for E! called "Life is Great With Brooke Burke." In addition, she has done select red carpet coverage for major awards shows.
Burke currently stars in EA Games' hot new video game "Need for Speed: Underground 2" where she plays Rachel Teller, a street-wise adrenaline junkie who runs an elite, underground street racing circuit. For her performance, she received a Spike TV Video Game Award for Best Performance by a Human-Female. She also lends her voice to Atari's Trivial Pursuit Unhinged video game as the celebrity host of its "People and Places" category.
On the acting front, Burke appears in the upcoming independent features "The Hazing" and "Knuckle Sandwich." In addition, she has guest-starred on the television series "Less Than Perfect," "Eve," "It's All Relative," "The Bernie Mac Show," "Monk," "Rock Me Baby" and "That's Life." She made her stage debut performing a celebrity guest "CenterPIECE" monologue for the Los Angeles premiere of the hit off-Broadway play, "Pieces (Of Ass)." She also currently appears in a new Burger King commercial, directed by David Lachapelle.
During her three-year stint as host of "Wild On," Burke redefined the term exotic location. She has guided tours from the Australian Outback to the Mayan Riviera, and from the endangered Bamboo forests of Bali to the hyperthyroid nightlife of the world's most exotic party capitals. From grasping the fin of a wild shark in Belize to flying a Russian MIG 17 at negative g's, this is the wild child who has done it all. Born with a thirst to explore, Burke experienced each country as a culture, not as a tourist.
From her extensive travels and ten years of swimwear advertising experience, Burke has spanned the globe in search of hip, sexy styles for swimwear. Now, her travels have inspired a collection of internationally flavored beachwear called "Barely Brooke." The line is a mix of hot, simple, earthy looks, to create the best imagery of styles from around the world. The collection, which offers sexy bikinis, one-piece suits, matching pants, hip cover-ups and tops, appeared in Sports Illustrated's Swimsuit 2003 issue.In addition, Victoria's Secret offered one of the Barely Brooke collections in its ever-popular catalogue. She has recently signed a deal with Venus Swimwear to debut her new collection in 2005.
Raised in Tucson, Arizona, Burke developed an affinity for the desert as a child and never envisioned herself as a Hollywood personality or television star. "When I was young, I wanted to do something innocuous, like become a drummer in a rock and roll band," says Burke, whose French, Irish and Portuguese descent make up her stunningly exotic visage.
Despite her hectic schedule, Burke has found the perfect balance between motherhood, marriage and career. Nothing is more rewarding than the quality time she spends at home with her husband, Dr. Garth Fisher (plastic surgeon from ABC's "Extreme Makeover") and their two young daughters. Burke enjoys doing yoga, pilates, the "Core Secrets" ball workout, taking long walks along mountain trails or secluded beaches, preparing gourmet holiday meals for her family and friends, and catching movies and plays.
