Gail Kim is one of the hottest female athletes to ever come out of Canada. She is of Korean descent and was born in the city of Toronto. Her stunning beauty and undeniable ability to perform in the ring have made her an international star. Kim came up through the independent scene and has wrestled for both major U.S. wrestling promotions, WWE and TNA. She has appeared in movies, reality television shows, and even video games. Besides being beautiful and athletic, Kim is also well-educated.
Kim attended Ryerson University in her hometown of Toronto. During her time at the university, she majored in nutrition. WWE recognized Kim's intellectual ability when they selected her to represent the company on the hit game show Brainsurge. She even dabbled in kinesiology at one point, which may have helped her with her outstanding movement in the ring. While Gail Kim is clearly a pretty smart woman, it was probably her stunning good looks that first caught the attention of wrestling promoters.
Kim is 5 foot 4 and billed as weighing 120 pounds. The Asian stunner was named on Forbes magazine's list of "America's Most Eligible Bachelorettes." However, she would eventually go on to marry celebrity chef, Robert Irvine. Now that we know her background, let's take a look at 15 photos of this gorgeous star.
15 CUPCAKE GIRL
There is nothing quite like a beautiful woman with cupcakes, is there? This photo is every hungry wrestling fans dream.
