Gabrielle Reece
I searched and couldn't believe there wasn't a thread for one of the most beautiful women on earth so I am going to start one.

Bio:
ESPN recently dubbed Gabrielle Reece one of the world’s sexiest athletes. Gabrielle, also known as Gabby, possesses a look that conveys both athleticism and feminine beauty. At 6’3”, Gabby is a dominate force on and off the pro beach volleyball circuit. A Women’s Beach Volleyball League star, she competed again in pro volleyball in the Summer of 2007 when five months pregnant, inspiring women to stay in shape during their pregnancy.


Gabby recently released and produced her own health & fitness products: “Bell Express 15” Workout Kits and “Gabrielle Reece Fit & Healthy Prenatal Workouts” DVDs. The “Bell Express 15” Workout Kits take the time-crunched consumer through five different targeted workouts including Strength, Cardio, Fit n’ Slim, Core Training and 30 Day Challenge.

The “Gabrielle Reece Fit & Healthy Prenatal Workouts” are month-by-month first and second trimester pregnancy workouts that can be done in fifteen minute segments. “One of my missions is to find realistic ways to help busy women who have little time to take better care of themselves…If you do this program, not only will you feel and look better but you will be doing something beneficial for yourself and your baby,” says Gabby. The pregnancy and ‘Express 15’ products hit retailers January 2008 and can be found on Gabby’s fitness site www.GotoGabby.com and amazon.com. A second DVD covering the three trimesters and post-natal delivery will be released in Fall 2008.


Gabby recently signed on as a spokesperson for Simply Nutrilite with a line of vitamins and supplements as part of a national effort to help the contemporary mom make practical choices for her on-the-go, active lifestyle. Gabby says, “With a hectic schedule that includes three children, it’s not always easy to have full healthy meals everyday. Simply Nutrilite products are the sure option for quick and better nutrition.” These vitamins and supplements and health and fitness tips are available on her Yahoo Health page (http://health.yahoo.com/experts/gabbyguide.).


Passionate about working out, Gabby hosts ‘Insider Training’ for FitTV/Discovery, where she goes behind the scenes to give an inside look at professional athletes’ exercise regimens and what they eat. (www.fittv.discovery.com/fansites/insidertraining). Gabby is a featured host every year on ESPN and NBC’s “Gravity Games”. She won a huge following by taking risks road-luging, white water kayaking, drag racing, surfing, and sky diving on “MTV Sports” and “The Extremists with Gabrielle Reece” in the 90’s and was a commentator at the 1998 Goodwill Games.


Gabby can be seen on the big screen as a physical trainer in the film ‘Gattica’ (1997), a pro beach volleyball player in ‘Cloud Nine’ with Bert Reynolds (2004), and as a guest star in ‘North Shore’ (2004) and ‘8 Simple Rules’ on ABC (2005). She’s graced the cover of Sports Illustrated for Women, Travel & Leisure Golf, Women’s Sports & Fitness, Outside, Elle, Shape, Self, Harpers’ Bazaar, Volleyball, Fitness, Life,Vogue, and People.


She was Nike’s first-ever female cross-training spokesperson (1993-99), and their first female athlete to design a shoe. Working with Tinker Hatfield, designer of the Air Jordan, Nike Launched Gabby’s shoe the Air Trainer Set in 1994, the Air Patrol in 1995, the first women’s shoe to outsell men’s and outsell the Air Jordan, the Air GR in 1997 and the Air GR II in 1998.


In 1997, competing with the best global beach volleyball players ever assembled, Gabby’s 4-person team took first place at the first-ever Beach Volleyball World Championships. A Florida State star turned pro, 1997 was Gabby’s fifth season as a team captain in the 4-person Women’s Beach Volleyball League (WBVL), and her fourth captaining Team Nike, which shared League Co-Championship. Named the Offensive Player of the Year in 1994-95 and WBVL blocks leader, Gabby led the WBVL in kills four straight years in a row from 1993-1996. She trained hard to hone her skills in 2-person beach volleyball and competed domestically in the 1999-2000 Olympic Challenge Series and the 1999-2000 FIVB Beach Volleyball World Tour. . “I enjoy getting the ball to go exactly where I want it, at the speed I want it to go,” says Gabby.


Women’s Sport & Fitness’ named Gabby one of the 20 Most Influential Women in Sports (Aug/1997). Regarding their choice of Gabby for that issue’s cover, the magazine’s editor wrote, “Because I believe she represents, finally, the answer to all the image-questing pendulum swinging of the decades gone by. Who is the female athlete? She is everything once thought to be an inherent contradiction. She is strong and beautiful, sweaty and feminine, tough and ladylike.” Gabby also co-wrote a book that year with Karen Karbo about her life as a pro athlete entitled “Big Girl in the Middle,” published by Crown (1997). She also wrote a column for Conde Nast’s magazine Women’s Sports & Fitness and was a contributing editor at Elle magazine.


California born, she is a mix of her mother from Long Island, her height comes from mom, and a father from Trinidad who died when she was five. Her trademark piece of jewelry, copied on a tattoo inside her right ankle, is a stylized sterling silver cross worn by her father. Raised on St. Thomas in the Virgin Islands, Gabby didn’t take up volleyball until in the 11th grade when she and her mother moved to St. Petersburg, Florida. She won an athletic scholarship to Florida State University where she majored in Communications and played two seasons of volleyball before accepting offers from the modeling world in New York. She was only a sophomore at Florida State University when Elle named her “one of the five most beautiful Women in the world”. Despite the allure of five-figure modeling jobs, Gabby returned to the FSU campus. Gabby set two school volleyball records in solo blocks (240) and total blocks (747). Both records still stand. In 1997, Florida State University inducted Gabby into the college’s Athletic Hall of Fame.
And here are some pictures to start us off!

She is and she used to model a little bit. I don't think she gets enough credit, I think she is extremely pretty.
