Maria Menounos has reportedly been linked to Tim Tebow, one of the NFL's hottest players right now. What do you know about the Greek-American beauty?
Besides reporting breaking entertainment news alongside Mario Lopez, Menounos, is also a New York Times best selling author. Menounos's book, The EveryGirl's Guide to Life hit shelves on April 12, 2011, and debuted at number three on the New York Times Best-Sellers list in the May 1 issue of the New York Times Book Review. The book is an A-Z guide for women of all ages that features tips and secrets that she learned from working in the entertainment business.
Menounos most recently lost a Super Bowl bet over the weekend, and had to wear a New York Giants bikini in Times Square. The reporter tweeted on February 6th, Just finished self tanning...lost my bet with @ajcalloway and now have to wear a Giants bikini in NY. Loss was devastating today. The tweet was followed up with, Problem with the bikini thing? I ate everything you wouldn't eat in major quantities 2prove my vconfidence in winning. Now It'll be on display.
The reporter isn't all about bikinis. Accoding to the Extra website, Menounos is the only journalist to interview the entire Obama family. Extra says that political experts believe the interview to be one of the defining moments leading to Obama's victory.
Menounos has also appeared on the big and small screen when she's not reporting. She can be seen playing herself in Ben Stiller's Tropic Thunder, and has made guest appearances on NBC's Scrubs, the CW's One Tree Hill, and HBO's Entourage. Besides acting in minor roles, the Greek-American is also a director and producer, working alongside Christopher Lloyd, Kathie Lee Gifford, Henry Winkler and Artie Lang.
Tim Tebow isnt the only one who has caught the Menounos bug either. The reporter dated producer Kevin Undergaro in 2011, was rumored to be dating John Legend in 2008, and was with Vin Diesel in 2006. The Extra host has also appeared on Maxim's Hot 100 List, People magazine's 50 Most Beautiful, as well as winning the Spike Video Game Awards for Cyber Vixen of the Year Award.
