Celebrity Muscle-Torrie Wilson
Torrie is one of the most popular female personalities in the history of professional wrestling. Before she became a household name, Torrie was a fitness model and champion prior to entering the wrestling world. Her journey into fitness began after battling anorexia nervosa and then bulimia that lasted from ages 14 to 20. She entered the Tri-Fitness competition, placing third in her first competition, and went on to win it the very next year. Side note, one of her best friends, Lisa Marie Varon (who I'll highlight later on), was also a fitness competitor.
She was a part of World Championship Wrestling (WCW) during its final days. She was asked by a friend that she would be perfect for a storyline that they were doing, which lead to her being WCW's answer to WWE's Trish Stratus. Torrie then went on to join World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) and became of the top ladies in the organization. During her time in the wrestling industry, she dazzled audiences with a body that put others to shame (very few can beat her in bikini contests) and tried her best to put on a show every time she entered the ring. Despite her lack of wrestling talent, she more than made up for it with her connection to the wrestling audience, something that the current WWE Divas can't do.
Now retired from the ring, she now runs her own clothing line/store called Jaded with her boyfriend Nick Mitchell, a former WWE wrestler. She was recently a part of the celebrity survivor show "I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here!" on NBC, and lasted all the way to the finals, where she was beaten by eventual winner Lou Diamond Phillips. She is planning on releasing a workout video soon, so be on the lookout for that.
