Gabrielle Reece - Biography

 

Gabrielle Allyse Reece (born January 6, 1970) is an American professional volleyball player, sports announcer, and fashion model.
Reece was born in La Jolla, California and raised in Saint Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands. She returned to the U.S. mainland for the eleventh grade, when she took up sports. She accepted a volleyball scholarship from the Florida State University, where she majored in communications, and in volleyball she led the league in kills four times and blocks once. In 1989, she moved to model in New York City. In 1997, she was selected for induction into the Florida State University Athletic Hall of Fame. Reece set two school volleyball records in solo blocks (240) and total blocks (747). Both records still stand. FSU inducted Reece into the Florida State University Athletics Hall of Fame in 1997.

After graduation, Reece played on professional volleyball tours for several years. That year, Reece's 4-man team took first place at the first-ever Beach Volleyball World Championships staged at the UCLA Tennis Center, in her fifth season as a team captain in the 4-person Women's Beach Volleyball League (WBVL), and fourth captaining Team Nike, which shared League Co-Championship.
For four consecutive years, Reece was the WBVL kills leader from 1993-1996. She was named the Offensive Player of the Year in 1994-95, and the League blocks leader in 1993. She also competed domestically in the 1999-2000 Olympic Challenge Series, the 1999-2000 FIVB Beach Volleyball World Tour, and other competitions.
Reece trained for four years hoping to make it onto the LPGA but was unsuccessful. In 2009, she said, "... with young children, I simply didn't have the time for such a demanding game".

Reece began her modeling career while attending FSU. In 1989 she was named by Elle as one of the five most beautiful women in the world. She appeared in several Elle layouts in the late 1980s and early 1990s. She has appeared on the covers of Outside, Shape, Women's Sports & Fitness, Elle, and Life. She appeared on the cover of Playboy, with an accompanying nude pictorial, in January 2001. Reece had previously made a cameo appearance as herself on the HBO series Arliss in which, ironically, she angrily reprimanded her agent for even suggesting she accept an offer to pose nude for Playboy.

Reece co-wrote a book with Karen Karbo about her life as a pro athlete entitled "Big Girl in the Middle," published by Crown (1997). She also wrote a column for Conde Nast's magazine Women's Sports & Fitness, and has been a contributing editor at ELLE magazine. For several years, Reece hosted ESPN and NBC's "Gravity Games," where she participated in the daredevil sports of road-luging, white water kayaking, drag racing, surfing, sky diving, and more on "MTV Sports" (1993-95), and "The Extremists with Gabrielle Reece"(1995-96). She was also a commentator at the 1998 Goodwill Games.
Reece recently reunited with Nike as a spokeswoman, and she is a new expert and writer for Yahoo-Health. Reece also produced an infomercial for a health & fitness product, "The Primal System" with fitness expert Paul Chek, and hosted a show for Fit Tv/Discovery, ‘Insider Training' where she profiled professional athletes about their training & conditioning regimens.
In movies, Reece played the role of a physical trainer in the film Gattaca (1997) and a pro beach volleyball player in "Cloud Nine" with Burt Reynolds (in 2004). She guest-starred on North Shore (2004) and 8 Simple Rules (2005). She appeared as a guest on Extreme Makeover Home Edition and America's Next Top Model and The Tyra Banks Show. In 2007, Reece and her husband Laird Hamilton, appeared in the ABC reality television series Fast Cars and Superstars: The Gillette Young Guns Celebrity Race, featuring a dozen celebrities in a stock car racing competition. In the first round of competition, she matched up against the former NFL coach Bill Cowher and the actor William Shatner.
In 2008, she released Gabrielle Reece: Fit & Healthy Prenatal Workouts with exercise guru Mike Monroe. For 2008, Reece was the spokeswoman for Simply Nutrilite, a line developed by Quixtar.

On November 30, 1997, Gabrielle married the Hawaiian big-wave surfer Laird Hamilton. In January 2001, she filed for divorce. A year later they reconciled. They have two children together: daughters Reece Viola Hamilton (born in October 2003) and Brody Jo Hamilton (born on January 1, 2008 in Hawaii).
