Victoria Silvstedt

Karin Victoria Silvstedt (born 19 September 1974) is a Swedish model, actress, singer, and television personality.

Born in Skelleftehamn, Silvstedt was raised in a family of five in Bollnäs, having one older sister and one younger brother. She was keen on horseback riding and wanted to become a veterinarian.

Silvstedt's father was the captain of a local ski team, and she started alpine skiing at the age of five. In 1989, Silvstedt placed fourth at a youth championship in the giant slalom won by Pernilla Wiberg. However, an accident in the middle of a skiing competition where she injured her shoulder ended Silvstedt's competitive skiing career at the age of 16.

A few years later, Silvstedt was invited to participate in the Miss Sweden beauty pageant, after her mother and sister had sent some pictures of her to the pageant officials.

Silvstedt met Chris Wragge in 1997, when he interviewed her for Entertainment Tonight. They were engaged on Christmas Eve 1998, and married in 2000. Silvstedt and Wragge lived in Santa Monica and Houston for several years, before moving to New York's SoHo district in 2004. They separated in 2007 but have not divorced.

According to the Finnish broadsheet newspaper Keskisuomalainen, Silvstedt earns millions of dollars every year for her work in modelling, television presenting, and promoting various brands and products.


Silvstedt speaks English, French, and Italian, in addition to her native language Swedish.
