Leeann Tweeden biography


Leeann Tweeden was born on June 13, 1973, in Manassas, Virginia, USA.

The Osbourn Park Senior High graduate headed to Colorado Springs to try a modeling career. Fresh out of school, Leeann got a job at Hooters and postponed her acceptance to Harvard to study modeling full-time.

2 years after moving to Colorado, she won the Venus International Model Search competition in 1992. The aspiring model headed west to Los Angeles and made her television debut for Tony Little, the Venus Model Search fitness trainer.

While modeling for Frederick's of Hollywood in 1993, Leeann paid tribute to her modeling roots as the video and TV host of the Venus Model Search 1993. She later returned to host the event in 1994 and hosted the finals in 1995, 1996, and 1997.

Her work with Venus Model Search helped her land her first magazine cover when she graced the cover of Swimwear USA Magazine. Although Leeann is not said to have worked with Hooters for a long time, her relationship with the restaurant chain extended for several years. She appeared in the 1993 and 1994 Hooters calendar, the 1994 Hooters card set, and the Women of the World card set of the same year.

As you can see, 1994 was a hot year for her, full of offers. Who was next to call? None other than Mr. Playboy himself when Leeann made her Playboy cover girl debut. As Leeann was a pro at modeling lingerie, the exotic beauty also appeared on the cover of Playboy's Book of Lingerie in November/December 1994.

In 1997, Leeann moved on to a new genre of posing, modeling the main character in the comic Coven 13, thanks to No Mercy Comics. That same year, she appeared in the Personal Watercraft Illustrated Swimsuit Issue and Frederick's of Hollywood Model Calendars in 1997 and 1998 and modeled for Carushka Bodywear and the 1998 Leeann Tweeden Calendar.

Besides holding the record for having graced the cover of Frederick's catalog the most, Leeann has maintained a working relationship with Playboy over the years that has borne more than her soul for Bunny mag.

Her work for Playboy includes Girls of Summer (1995), Book of Lingerie (1996), Hardbodies (1996), Cover Girls (1997), Girls of Summer (1997), Book of Lingerie in October and December 1998, and Barefoot Beauty's (1999).

Leeann has also made her presence felt on television with appearances on EdenQuest (starring Pamela Anderson), Star Search, The Vicki Lawrence Show, Entertainment Tonight, and Jerry Springer.

Her most significant break to date was her role on ESPN2's (the network that made Kiana Tom famous) Fitness Beach in 1996.

An avid motorcycle rider and traveler, Leeann spends January and May each year announcing Motocross events for Pace Motorsports. While she has realized parts of her dreams, Leeann would love to become a female sportscaster. However, she has her own column for Racer X Illustrated, a motorcycle magazine, which also features her layout.

She hosts Bluetorch, a TV show featuring extreme sports such as surfing, snowboarding, and skateboarding.

From lingerie, playing cards, and comics to fitness and bikes, Leeann Tweeden has been involved with road racer Ben Bostrom and surfer Shane Dorian.
