Brooke Burke is a multi-talented actress who has excelled in practically every discipline imaginable. She was thrust into the spotlight at the juvenile age of 14 due to her stunning appearance and body composition. She has exhibited her multitalented nature in a variety of ways, from modeling to dancing, hosting to acting, and from television to Hollywood. She has not only evolved into a well-known television personality, but she has also made steps toward developing her own swimsuit line and founding and operating two websites as a successful entrepreneur. She has also demonstrated her artistic abilities through the publication of a book. She never tried to move between modeling, hosting, and acting; instead, she began spreading out when opportunities arose. This American beauty has had such good fortune and aptitude that she has gracefully and confidently adapted to every lucrative chance. Despite her desire to pursue an unusual profession as a rock band drummer, she was forced into the entertainment sector, unaware that this would bring her fame and notoriety in the years to come.

Childhood and Adolescence

Brooke Lisa Burke was born on September 8, 1971, in Hartford, Connecticut, to a family of seven children, including three elder sisters and three younger brothers. Her multi-ethnic origin bestowed to her a gorgeous and unusual appearance. Her father, George Burke, was of French and Irish descent, while her mother, Donna, was of Portuguese and Jewish descent.

When she was two years old, her parents split, and her mother went to Tucson, Arizona, with the children. Her mother met and married Armen Hartounian, who took care of the children while she worked three jobs to help support the family.

She received her official education at Sahuaro High School and Palo Verde High School. She rose to prominence at the age of 14 when she won her first beauty contest due to her remarkable looks. Her beautiful looks drew her into the entertainment sector, despite her desire to be a rock band drummer.

When she and a friend went to a modeling agency in Scottsdale, she was seen by a talent scout. She was a busy model at the age of 18, shooting for a variety of print campaigns, including magazine covers, swimsuit calendars, and billboards. She enrolled in broadcast journalism at the University of California, Los Angeles to pursue a modeling career (UCLA).
