Tanja Reichert

Name: Tanja Reichert

Born: Last century

Birthplace: Vancouver, Canada

Height: Tall (she's an ex-model)

Vitals: Bursting at the seams

Work: Tanja was born in Vancouver, British Columbia, which is also the birthplace of James Doohan (Scotty from Star Trek) and Jason Priestley. Not surprisingly, she got the hell out of Vancouver as soon as she could.The Los Angeles-based lovely is a former fitness instructor who also went into modeling and acting. Her big TV break came in 2001 with her recurring role as Karen in the Fox 8 series Relic Hunter starring Tia Carrere. After that, she scored a part in Legally Blonde 2, then landed her hugest role to date, playing Kellie in Club Dread.

Play: Tan maintains her fine figure through snowbarding and daily exercise. She told Ice magazine her biggest turn-off was "the light switch in my bedroom" and if she could teach fellas one thing it'd be to "just let us win, it's easier in the long run."

Trivia: When asked who'd triumph in a fight between herself and Legally Blonde 2 co-star Reese Witherspoon, Tanja said, "That'd be a close call. I'm a hair-puller, but she's a biter." Concerning her brilliant skills as a snowboarder." I can apply lipstick while bombing a chute." We've no idea what that means, but it sounds impressive.
