BiographyTorrie Wilson was born in Boise, Idaho on July 24, 1975. She was raised in a small town north of Boise with a population of 2,500. As a child, Torrie was rather shy but took comfort in her small community and began to excel in cheerleading and track and field in high school.
As a sophomore, her mother encouraged her to pursue her interest in modeling. When an agency owner informed her that she would have to drop some weight in order to make it in the business, Torrie Wilson complied. Although she lost the pounds, she also developed a serious eating disorder that haunted her for four years. Offers came in after high school for contract work in New York and Los Angeles, but Torrie decided not to stray from her hometown roots.
