Czech her out: Pouty Petra Nemcova, a comely cover girl and swimsuit model, is not just a pretty face—she’s a tough-as-nails survivor of the infamous 2004 tsunami. The phenomenally pretty Petra grew up under Communist rule in Czechoslovakia before using her flawless face and figure to win Elite’s “Look of the Year” contest. Her modeling career really hit the stratosphere when she landed the cover of the perennial spank Bible, Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Issue, in 2003. Tragedy struck the very next year when she was seriously injured—and her fiancé was killed—in the tsunami while the pair was vacationing in Thailand. But you can’t keep a good supermodel down for long, and Petra was back in front of the cameras soon enough, her bod in better shape than ever. Don’t miss the Sports Illustrated: Swimsuit 2004 video to check out what naughty Nemcova has unda her clothes.
