After being featured in magazines, she happened to become a model in commercials, which led to her first role in a TV series– “Unplanned” in 1995.

She was ready to go back to working as soon as she delivered, and got her first but not really big movie role in the comedy “Shallow Hal”– a shallow man who falls in love with a 300lbs woman. The movie has a rating of 5.9/ 10 on IMDb and even though that is not so good, the audience loved the movie.
After an amazing scene in “Fear Factory” in which she jumped onto the roof of a double-decker bus, she was offered the position of host in a TV reality show called “Dog Eat Dog”, a game show in which contestants compete physically and in other kind of games for a prize of $25,000.
