Torrie Wilson left the country life to become a fitness model, and in 1998 she won the Ms. Galaxy Florida competition. That same year she moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in acting.
In 1998, she went to a WCW house show in Los Angeles. It was her first time watching wrestling. “I didn’t have cable where I grew up.” After going backstage, she was asked to walk out in the ring with Scott Steiner. Her career was born. She later signed with WCW and her first role was as a valet to David Flair. She admitted she was hired for her looks and said she didn’t know much about wrestling.
Torrie Wilson stayed with World Championship Wrestling from 1999 to 2001. She was part of WWE from 2001-2008. Of her time at the WWE, she was frustrated that women would pitch ideas, but they were generally ignored (bleacherreport.com).
In 2004, Torrie Wilson appeared with Sable on the cover of Playboy; she said posing nude was hard. "I’m not shy with my body. I work out extremely hard, and so I am proud of what I work for. Definitely being nude was quite an experience for me…what fans don’t know is that I was the bikini contest girl, but there were many, many times I would come backstage from doing those bikinis and just ball my eyes out because I felt so degraded” (baltimoresun.com).
In 2007, Torrie Wilson ranked number 43 on FHM’s 100 Sexiest Women in the World List. In 2008, she was released from the WWE due to injuries. And in 2009, she appeared on the NBC reality show “I’m a Celebrity…Get Me out of Here,” in which she was the runner-up.
She said, “This sounds really lame, but I’m pretty proud of my feet. I’ve gotten so many compliments for having nice feet. If someone has a foot fetish, I’d have an in. I love foot rubs, too. I’ll take one whenever I can.”
Since December 2011, she has been dating New York Yankees player Alex Rodriquez. As of this posting, they were still dating. Torrie Wilson resides in Los Angeles.
