Brook Burke was born September, 18, 1971, in Hartford, Connecticut, but was raised in Tucson, Arizona. With a blend of French, Irish, and Portuguese roots, the young woman was "discovered" while accompanying a friend to a modeling agency. Shortly after, she won an acting scholarship and headed to LA to study broadcast journalism. In her spare time she worked as a model and posed for Frederick's of Hollywood catalogues.
She has traveled with the show to locations both popular and unusual in places like Spain, Chicago, Jamaica, Bermuda, Yucatán, Waikiki, the West Indies and the Amazon. Burke began as a print model at age 18 in her native Arizona and was subsequently signed to high-profile agencies like Ford and Wilhelmina.
Her unique beauty, a reflection of her French, Irish and Portuguese lineage, has landed her several magazine covers and billboards, as well as editorials, posters, swimsuit calendars, videos and commercials for the likes of Bally Total Fitness and Discover Card.
Burke, who studied broadcast journalism at UCLA, enjoys working out with Bikram yoga, kickboxing and tennis, and, of course, she loves nature, travel and adventure. When she is not on the road with Wild On, Burke spends time with family, friends and her pets.
