Mandy Rose is known to show off in a bikini. She used to compete in the bikini contest circuit and credits that to helping her career take a path toward fitness.
While speaking to Corey Graves on After The Bell, Mandy Rose explained how she got into the bikini modeling competition circuit. It just happened by accident and she decided to give it a chance. This was a choice that ended up giving her career an unexpected boost.
“It was really random. It was actually a friend from work that I was waitressing with and she’s like you should start training with my coach and it’s a lot of fun you get to walk on stage. I didn’t know much about it and I was like, ‘I don’t know if that’s something I really wanna do.” I’m kinda like a free bird where I’m like I could try it and see what I really fell in love with was obviously the fitness side of it and like getting my body in shape and I was always athletic growing up, but I never really knew like bodybuilding and strength training.”
“When I got involved in that my coach right away was like, ‘you need to do a show’ and I’m like, ‘okay what does a show consist of?’ She’d show me these videos and pictures of these girls you know like walking in stripper heels and that’s what it looked like at the time — I was like, ‘I don’t know about this.’ There was a show in Boston which was not far from me in New York and I was like, ‘okay, let’s train for it.'”
“I ended up doing it, and I place first and like I said I just did my thing and had a good presence on stage and they liked what they saw and I placed first. I mean no big deal or anything.”
Corey Graves remarked that Mandy Rose “messed around and placed first.
Mandy Rose’s WWE career started years later when she joined the cast of Tough Enough. It’s been pretty easy to find her since. None of that would have probably happened if Mandy Rose hadn’t decided to give bikini contests a chance.
