Petra Nemcova

As a contestant on “Dancing With the Stars,” Petra Nemcova is expected to be charming, camera-friendly, and capable of being around aging D-list celebrities for hours on end without becoming immensely depressed. That’s a tall order, but if anyone’s suited to handle the pressure it’s Nemcova, a former world-class supermodel, undisputed beauty, and decidedly badass tsunami survivor. Since departing from the modeling world, Nemcova has occupied herself with various business ventures, philanthropic activities, and a personal crusade to promote veganism.

A word from Petra: “I love to dance. I can dance for, like, four or five hours nonstop without even drinking water. It’s a beautiful, beautiful thing.”
