she would study as a broadcast journalism student at UCLA. But her studies
were not her full-time job, as Brooke Burke also spent her free time in front of
the camera as a model.
Becoming a high-profile model would not be difficult after having signed
with modeling agencies Ford, Wilhelmina and Cunningham-Escott-Dipene. Brooke
was ready to add a dozen magazine covers to her resumé, not to mention
television commercials, most notable, the Bally Total Fitness commercials
(as the "beautiful body"), Discover Card commercials (as Derek Jeter's date),
and commercials for Coca-Cola, Anheuser-Busch and M Professional Cosmetics.

May 2001 issue.
Brooke Burke enjoys staying home with her pets and four children.
While at her Los Angeles home (where she spends a maximum of 15 days per
month), the jet setter stays fit by practicing yoga, kickboxing, scuba diving,
taking long walks, and relaxes by cooking and reading. From traveling around
the world as a model to seeing the world as the host of Wild On, Brooke has
recognized how important family is and her charitable nature is what drives
her to volunteer for non-profit organizations such as Athletes and Entertainers
for Kids and the Entertainment Industry Foundation.
