Adrianne Marie Curry was born and raised in Joliet, a small town in Illinois near Chicago. Adrianne wanted to be a model since the tender age of 12. Her big break came years later when she randomly answered a casting call for “America’s Next Top Model” a new reality competition TV show, hosted and produced by supermodel Tyra Banks.
Following her gut, Adrianne went on to win the contest and be crowned first ever America’s Next Top Model! She walked away from the show an instant celebrity and immediately landed modeling gigs for the likes of Macy’s, Revlon, Merit Diamonds and has appeared in numerous high-fashion magazines and TV commercials all over the world.
Then, in late 2004, Adrianne got a chance to come back to the small screen, as she signed on to co-star in the hit VH1 reality series “Surreal Life”, alongside cast-mates Christopher Knight, Marcus Schenkenberg, Joanie “Chyna Doll” Laurer, Verne Troyer, Jane Wiedlin and Da Brat. The show took the audiences by storm, breaking Network ratings as it won the hearts of the American audience. Little did Adrianne know that appearing on this show would change her life forever when she met and fell in love with “Surreal” co-star Christopher Knight, who is 25 years her senior and is best known for his portrayal of “Peter Brady” in the timeless TV Classic Hit, “The Brady Bunch”. Their unlikely romance immediately grabbed national headlines, resulting in the creation of a spin-off VH1 show, “My Fair Brady” that documented this high-profile romance with her new beau, as Adrianne moved to California.
“My Fair Brady” premiered in September of 2005 and became an instant hit, drawing-in fans by the millions. The show stayed in the #1 spot throughout the first season that culminated in a tear-jerking marriage proposal from Knight in the Season Finale. Thus, the Second Season of “My Fair Brady” was quickly picked up and rushed into production. The second installation of the show began where the first season left off, following the often crazed lives of the now engaged Adrianne and Chris as they make plans for a big Wedding with the cameras in tow on their way to the Alter. The highly acclaimed second season premiered in May of 2006 and ended with the Wedding Special Finale watched by millions. The success of the initial two seasons immediately prompted Season 3 that premiered in January of 2008.
