From hot male dancers who got the right moves, let’s move on to hot lawyers but, this time around, let’s focus on the fairer sex. So fellow Famewatchers, meet our list of 12 beautiful attorneys who graced your television via shows like Survivor, The Apprentice, and Big Brother UK. These ladies are proof that a lawyer’s life need not be confined to writing briefs, arguing before a judge, wheelin’-and-dealin’, and doing whatever things lawyers do to deserve their paychecks.
We begin our list of Twelve Hot Female Lawyers with Brooke Struck (now Brooke Stephens) of Survivor Guatemala. A graduate of Pepperdine University School of Law, Brooke is a founding partner of the Merus Law in Sacramento, California.
Francesca Hogi of Survivor Redemption Island and Survivor Caramoan. Francesca is a lovely and likeable girl but, during her two Survivor seasons, her fellow castaways picked her as the first person to vote off the island. This University of Michigan Law School graduate is practicing law in New York.
Becky Lee of Survivor Cook Islands. Becky received her Juris Doctorate Degree from the University of Pittsburgh School of Law. After Survivor, she founded Becky’s Fund, a non-profit organization for victims of domestic violence and abuse. She now works as executive director of said organization.
Candace Smith of Survivor Tocantins. Candace is a lawyer, a beauty queen (she won Miss Ohio), a model, a reality TV contestant, and an actress. To date, this Northwestern University School of Law graduate has 13 acting credits to her name on IMDB.
Caryn Groedel of Survivor Palau. Caryn studied law at the George Mason University School of Law in Arlington, Virginia. She now heads her own law firm, Caryn Groedel and Associates. She made the headlines in 2012 for winning a record $42.8 million in damages for a client who sued an insurance company, the Nationwide Mutual Insurance Co., for terminating her agency contract.
Eliza Orlins of Survivor Micronesia and Survivor Vanuatu. She finished her J.D. at the Fordham University School of Law. She is now a staff attorney at The Legal Aid Society in New York.
Kimberly Kisselovich of Big Brother UK. This California girl is probably the only Playboy bunny slash lawyer, no? She studied law in the U.K. either in Oxford University or in Oxford Brooks University.
Stacey Stillman of Survivor Borneo. A graduate of the New York University School of Law, Stacey earns the distinction as the first lawyer contestant of the Survivor franchise. She is also the first (maybe she’s the only one, we don’t know) who sued Survivor alleging that producer Mark Burnett influenced other castaways to vote her out of the island. Try as we might, we can’t find any updates on what happened to her lawsuit. Our guess is that the parties settled out of court. Stillman is now a senior associate of the Silicon Valley office of Orrick, a “leading global law firm with a particular focus on serving companies in the technology, energy and financial sectors”.
Erin Elmore of The Apprentice (Season 3) is no longer practicing law (she describes herself as “a former lawyer” on Twitter). So what is she doing now? Well, according to her Twitter account, she is now an on-air host of QVC (this is where you find the big bucks according to Kathy G.), a lifetime fitness and fashion enthusiast, a newish wife, and new mom to Royce.
Stefanie Schaeffer of The Apprentice (Season 6). This Southwestern University School of Law graduate beat all wannabes and won the whole caboodle during her Apprentice season. She practices law in California and, according to wikipedia, is the host of an online news legal show called Know Your Rights TV.
Mahsa Saeidi-Azcuy of The Apprentice (Season 10). Mahsa fun fact: She was demoted from her job as a prosecutor at the Brooklyn District Attorney office because she, apparently, did not get permission to appear on The Apprentice. She decided to resign and went on to build a career as a TV journalist and legal analyst.
Kristine Lefebvre of The Apprentice (Season 6). Apparently, Big Brother’s Kimberly is not the only lawyer in our list to pose for Playboy because Kristine also posed for the iconic men’s mag and was, in fact, the cover girl for the June 2007 issue. Fun fact about Kristine: she represented big name celebrities such as Shaquille O’Neal and Dan Marino. Kristine finished her law degree at the Nova Southeastern University in Florida.
