Lieschen Botes was discovered when she was 13 by an Italian scout, the same scout interestingly who discovered Charlize Theron in 1991. Lieschen then went on to become a finalist in the 1991 IMTA New Faces competition. A couple years later in 2002 she was named Miss Teen South Africa.


As a teen model, Lieschen had to juggle her schooling and modeling career, and apparently took two months out of each year to model overseas. Once she finished school, she spent the next five years traveling and modeling in various locales, including Spain, Milan, Korea, Paris, Athens and Italy.


Her career continued to rise and in 2005 she became the WonderBra Girl.


In 2007, FHM magazine named her one of the “100 Sexiest Women in the World.” That same year she was a celebrity dancer in the third season of the reality dance show “Strictly Come Dancing.” She was part of the fourth couple to be eliminated from the competition.


Aside from modeling, she enjoys wakeboarding, squash and working out.


In 2011, Lieschen Botes got into a Twitter fight with Michelle Malherbe after Lieschen accused Michelle of impersonating her on Twitter, due in part to Michelle’s online alias of “Lieschen.” It finally flamed out after Lieschen let the matter go.


Lieschen Botes is married to Rogerio Vieira. She is a mother and resides in Cape Town, South Africa.
