Ali Landry was born on July 21, 1973, in Breaux Bridge, Louisiana. She is an accomplished model and actress. Her first major appearance into the celebrity world was as a child actress in the TV series, "The Bold and the Beautiful". This hot Cajun vixen was raised in seaside Breaux Bridge, the Crawfish Capital of the World.
Ali entered the Miss USA pageant and was crowned Miss USA 1996. She was named by People Magazine as one of the 50 most beautiful people in 1998, and named by FHM magazine on their list of the 100 Sexiest Women in the World for 2000.
She has even done some laps on TV in what else other than Sunset Beach, and her tidal turn on the small screen took place in a laundromat. During last January's Super Bowl, she wiped out viewers in an ad for Doritos Puffs: Two cool dudes try to impress her with their prowess at catching the chips in their mouths, but Landry, who studied tap, ballet, and gymnastics for 15 years, outdoes them with a series of splits and leaps performed with a man-melting smile.
Her commercial costar Sean P. Hayes says, "We were shooting all day, and a lot of Doritos were consumed. I've never seen anyone look better with orange powder on her face."
The 5'8" Landry, who lives in L.A. and dates Phoenix Cardinals quarterback Stoney Case, still can't believe her impact. "It's absolutely crazy," she says, citing her imperfect vision ("I'm almost blind without my glasses"), and her bunions (she kept her favorite tennis shoes through a growth spurt).
Even her best beauty secret is low-priced. "I buy this teeth-bleaching stuff at Target and do it myself," she says. Her former apartment mate Brian Edwards swears it works: "When Ali smiled, I would say, 'Stop it, you're blinding me!'"
