Height: 5′ 10″ Born and raised in Karvina, in the Czech Republic, Petra Nemcova has taken the modeling world by storm. Ever since a modeling scout discovered her on the streets of her native country, she seems to be plastered in every magazine layout and advertisement.


Petra won the opportunity to model “swimsuits” for Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Issue in 2002, which was her second appearance in the magazine that has launched several modeling careers.


In addition to her work for SI, the Next agency model has graced the pages of Elle, Harper’s Bazaar and the French model Madame Figaro, and is a model for companies like Max Factor, La Perla and Cartier.


Her first American TV appearance was on the Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn, where the smitten host (who announced his love for her and British singer Dido) predicted that she would make the cover of Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Issue in 2003 - and he was right.
