Today's crush, Anna Kournikova, was a professional tennis player that has used her good looks to become one a worldwide brand, even though she never won a singles tennis title and retired years ago. Kournikova is our crush for finding a career that has taken her much farther than her original career choice, or talents, ever could.

Kournikova just announced she is leaving the hit NBC reality show 'The Biggest Loser' after one season as a personal trainer. One year was just long enough to get Kournikova 1) a ton of money and 2) a ton of exposure. She continually finds a way to keep herself in the spotlight. If only the rest of us were so lucky. We've blown our first, second and tenth career choices and still aren't rich or famous.

That said, we're giving our dream one last try. We'd like to announce, for the seventh straight year, we are trying out to be contestants on 'The Biggest Loser.' We've already begun training and can now devour forty-seven Ding Dongs on the ride up the elevator to our office. We can do forty-eight if someone else could push the Emergency button. The elevator is working fine but we are pretty sure our hearts stalled.
