is currently shooting the third season of "Wild On,"
which takes viewers to some of the hottest, most exotic
places around the world, showcasing popular travel destinations,
wild parties, the best beaches and most unique and secluded
locales. "The sun is always shining somewhere in
the world, and that's where we go," says Burke, who
has already been to Spain, the Mayan Riviera, Belize and
Aruba. "Some of my favorite activities have been
shark diving, riding the rapids, crocodile feeding in
the Black River in Jamaica, and skydiving."
the second highest show on the network, "Wild On"
continues to expose Burke to a variety of cultures, people,
food and personal challenges. "The only thing I've
refused to do is go on a lobster dive. I have a bug phobia
and they remind me too much of bugs," says Burke,
whose introduction onto the show was a shoot in Spain
to participate in La Tomatina -- the tomato war. "It's
the world's largest food fight you can imagine with forty
thousand drunken Spaniards and one hundred and twenty
tons of tomatoes." "Wild On" airs six nights
a week at midnight, with two new segments a month premiering
on Saturdays at 11:00pm.
As evidence of Burke's emerging popularity and fan base,
she gets the fourth most hits on E! Online (after Britney
Spears, Fashion Emergency and Howard Stern), and she was
recently selected as one of three women in the world to
be photographed for a 2002 At A Glance Calendar.
Raised in Tucson, Arizona, Burke never envisioned herself
in the entertainment industry. "When I was young,
I wanted to do something more low-key, like become a drummer
in a rock band," says Burke, whose French, Irish
and Portuguese descent make up her stunningly exotic look.
While accompanying a high school friend to a modeling
agency in Scottsdale, Arizona, Brooke was discovered by
a talent scout who happened to be there.
pursuing modeling near her hometown and going on to win
an acting scholarship, Burke moved to Los Angeles where
she studied broadcast journalism at UCLA. In between classes
during her first year at school, Burke signed with the
industry's highest profile agencies including Ford, Wilhelmina,
and Cunningham-Escott-Dipene. In addition to gracing dozens
of magazine covers, billboards, swimsuit editorials, catalogues
and posters, Burke has also starred in a string of popular
commercials. She is the "beautiful body" in
the Bally's Total Fitness commercials as well as Yankee's
shortstop, Derek Jeter's dream date for Discover Card.
Her other credits include Coca-Cola, Anheuser-Busch, and
M Professional Cosmetics.
Although she kept busy and content with modeling, Burke
took an interview with E! Entertainment on the insistence
of a friend. The producers were looking for a real person
that could go to exotic locations, interact with the people,
and be spontaneous. Brooke had a very casual meeting with
them, which led to a trial show that they all loved. Before
she knew it, she had signed a three year deal and was
packing her suitcases.
the fifteen days a month she spends at home in Los Angeles,
Burke enjoys doing pilates and yoga, taking long walks,
scuba diving, horseback riding, reading psychology books,
cooking holiday meals and going to see movies and plays.
She is also regularly volunteers her time to work with
such charitable organizations as Athletes & Entertainers
for Kids and the Entertainment Industry Foundation.
her hectic schedule, however, Burke is obviously not adverse
to new challenges. "I never intended to make the
cross-over from modeling to hosting, let alone acting,
but when an incredible opportunity comes along, I'm up
for it." And the sky's the limit for this gorgeous
and talented ingenue for whom film, television and modeling
doors continue to open in her path.
