Getting to know the top eight
Not only are the eight 2007 WWE Diva Search contestants beautiful, they boast quite impressive resumes, too. From Hawaiian Tropic bikini babes to a Playboy model to professional sports dancers and cheerleaders, this year's crop of women are virtual superwomen. WWE.com has exclusive, video resumes of the contestants. Here's a little taste of what you'll see this week:
Monday: Taryn Terrell and Eve Torres
• Taryn is a student, model and college cheerleader who has extensive experience in powerlifting and weight training. She's also had drill training with the NFL's New Orleans Saints, and is a master scuba diver. And when she's not doing all of that, Taryn donates her time and effort to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
• Eve loves being in front of a crowd and struts her stuff as a NBA Los Angeles Clippers Spirit Dancer. She loves mental challenges -- such as solving a Rubik's Cube, and stays in perfect shape by dancing, running, aerobics and kickboxing.
Tuesday: Lyndy Frieson and J. Kim
• Lyndy was a Miss Hawaiian Tropic Canada, and in 2007 was a runner-up in Miss Hawaiian Tropic International. This beauty is trained in martial arts, but is firmly in touch with nature. She loves the outdoors and grew up camping, fishing, horseback riding and hiking
• J. Kim is a former Miss Hawaiian Tropic model who was voted "Most Photogenic." The self-proclaimed country-girl-at-heart is a personal trainer by day, but in her spare time likes getting down and dirty bow hunting, fishing and four-wheeling, or participating in sports such as wakeboarding, volleyball and weightlifting.
Wednesday: Jessica Hatch and Naomi Kirk
• Jessica's many accolades include competing in college volleyball and softball, and taking top honors at fitness shows. She's a Miss Ujena Texas, a Miss Bikini America and a Golden Gloves Silver Medalist. Clearly, Jessica's talents thrive not just through her beauty, but through her love of competition. She says she can even break 200 in bowling!
• Naomi's career has been off to a quick, successful start. She's performed as both a NFL Dallas Cowboys cheerleader and an NBA Dallas Mavericks dance-team member. Naomi has also hosted a show for the Octane online television network. She's a hard-working, confident woman who feels that her faith in her own abilities is one of her best traits.
Thursday: Brooke Gilbertsen and Lena Yada
• Brooke has been dancing her entire life, and has extensive training in ballet, tap, jazz and Irish dancing, so she's a natural in the spotlight. She's also been a model and has taught fitness training for children. This beauty loves spontaneity -- there's nothing better than scooting around on her Vespa with her toy poodle in tow!
• Lena is ranked No. 8 in the world in professional tandem surfing. The former Miss Hawaiian Tropic Japan has acting accolades, too. She's starred in commercials for Sprite and Bud Light, and even had a role in the recent Adam Sandler-Kevin James movie, I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry. The self-proclaimed "Asian sensation" says she'll try anything once and isn't one to back down from a challenge.
