Birthplace: Ottawa, Illinois, USA

A former model and reality contestant, Maria Kanellis made the jump from being a backstage reporter for World Wrestling Entertainment to entering the ring and becoming one of the most popular female wrestlers - or Divas - for the WWE's SmackDown brand. Born on May 2, 1980 in Ottawa, IL, Kanellis grew up a multi-sport athlete, taking an interest in basketball, volleyball and softball; particularly while attending Ottawa Township High School. When she was 15 years old, she started modeling and later became a Hawaiian Tropic Girl. After graduating high school in 2000, Kanellis attended Northern Illinois University for a time, though her desire to become a celebrity superseded and led her to leave higher education behind. She first set off to Australia, where she was one of 12 women vying for the attentions of former underwear model, Vadim Dale, on the "Bachelor"-like reality show, "Outback Jack" (TBS, 2004). Kanellis made it to the final three before being eliminated.
