The beautiful and sensuous Brooke Burke is recognized worldwide as the hottest tour
guide and adrenaline junkie on E!'s popular travel series, "Wild On," seen in 120 countries
and in more than 400 million homes. Having now completed her "Wild On" assignment,
Brooke has segued to hosting E!'s popular new pop culture countdown series, "Rank." The
show rates everything in entertainment, from Hollywood's sexiest stars to the best date
movies and continues to expose Brooke to an adoring audience!
During her three-year stint as host of "Wild On," Brooke 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, Brooke experiences each country as a culture, not as a tourist. She's taken by
the people and the environment and absorbs it all.
During her extensive travels and ten years of swimwear advertising experience, Brooke
has spanned the globe in search of hot, hip, sexy styles for swimwear. Now, her travels
have inspired a collection of internationally flavored beachwear called "Barely Brooke,"
manufactured in Italy. Studio italia designer Christina Andrade Brenner and Brooke have
imaged and developed a look for their collection to mirror the essence and sensuality of
Brooke's travels, through Italian quality, image, prestige and sex appeal. Barely Brooke is
a mix of hot, simple, earthy looks, combined with island-inspired fabrics to create the best
imagery of style from around the world. The fun, young and sexy collection, which offers
sexy bikinis, one-piece suits, matching pants, hip cover-ups and tops, is currently being
photographed for Sports Illustrated's upcoming swimsuit issue and will be available in
better department stores and specialty boutiques in early 2003. In addition, Victoria's
Secret will be offering one of the Barely Brooke collections in their ever-popular catalogue.
Brooke most recently returned from Belize, where she was photographed for her 2003
calendar, which features her Barely Brooke swimwear designs. The calendar is now
available in retail stores. In addition, E! will air a special on the making of the calendar in
October, and a DVD version containing exclusive behind-the-scenes footage from the
shoot will soon be available in stores and at www.BrookeBurke.com.
Raised in Tucson, Arizona, Brooke 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.
Brooke was discovered by a local Arizona modeling agency, after which she won an acting
scholarship, and soon moved to Los Angeles where she began her studies in broadcast
journalism at UCLA. While there, she signed contracts with several prestigious modeling
agencies that ultimately led to dozens of magazine covers, billboards, swimsuit editorials,
catalogues and posters. She has also appeared in many popular television commercials.
Despite her hectic schedule, Brooke 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, and their young daughters Neriah and Sierra Sky.
Brooke enjoys doing pilates, taking long walks along mountain trails or secluded beaches,
preparing gourmet holiday meals for her family and friends, and catching movies and
plays. She regularly volunteers with many charitable organizations including Athletes &
Entertainers for Kids and the Entertainment Industry Foundation. A portion of the
proceeds from her website sales are donated to the charities of her choice.
Brooke is also currently writing a travel book describing her favorite destinations. "I'm so
excited about this project," she offers. "It's a collection of my travel adventures, photos,
and favorite places. The book will be a hip, easy and fun guide for any traveler."
We can be certain that whatever undertaking is in the future for this remarkable woman,
it will be awe-inspiring. "I never intended to make the cross-over from modeling to
hosting, let alone into acting or writing, but when an incredible opportunity comes along,
I'm all for it," she concludes. And the sky's the limit for this gorgeous and talented
ingénue for whom film, television and entertainment portals continue to open.
