Chrissy is a 27-year-old model of Thai-Norwegian ancestry who made her first modeling appearance as a 2004 IGN babe, and we've been watching her ever since.

This isn't Chrissy's first time in our spotlight, we've already crowned her a Babe of the Day, and celebrated with this gallery of her hotness. Chrissy was a model on the gameshow 'Deal or No Deal' from 2006-2007, when Maxim took notice and put her front and center on the cover of their calendar.

Since then she's had modeling campaigns with several huge names, including Nike and Beach Bunny Swimwear. She made her Sports Illustrated debut in their 2010 Swimsuit Issue, in which she was named 'Rookie of the Year'.

Chrissy isn't just a print model, though; she's also been a recurring guest host and contributor on E! Entertainment, TMZ, MTV, FUSE/MSG and EXTRA with Mario Lopez, and appeared on an episode of 'Americas Next Top Model.' This spring things really heat up for our crush, when she begins her post as the host of VH1's 'Model Employee.'

When she's not working, Chrissy loves cooking, traveling and writing -- you can read about all three on her blog. She's also really, really funny.
