"Alpha Males Experiment" Star-Bio: Amie Barsky

Amie Barsky was born in Atco, New Jersey. As a child, Barsky had varied interests. She was a talented and enthusiastic student at her dancing and gymnastics classes, but Barsky loved riding dirt bikes just as much as she enjoyed her lessons. A self-confessed tomboy, Barksy often played kickball or watch the drag racers at the raceway.

As she grew up, Barsky's love of dancing only continued to flourish. Her natural talent and dedication landed her a spot with the National Ballet of New Jersey. Following this, Barksy relocated to Philadelphia so that she could attend the prestigious University of the Arts. While living in Philadelphia and honing her craft, Barsky's enthusiasm and perseverance led to an unexpected opportunity. Barsky became a cheerleader for the Philadelphia Eagles, joining the National Football League organization. This opportunity helped Barsky hone her talents as a dancer, an athlete, and a performer. Barksy became accustomed to performing in front of large groups, since more than 60,000 people a week attended the Eagles games.

Her cheerleading opened up other avenues for Barsky. In 2000, she landed the role of Rhonda on "The Lyricist Lounge Show," a sketch comedy show on MTV. In 2001, Barsky's visibility soared when she became a contestant on "The Amazing Race." She appeared on the show along with her teammate and fianc┼Ż, Paul Alessi. The experience also led to a few appearances on TV talk shows, such as "The Early Show."

As an actress, dancer, and model, Barsky has appeared in a versatile range of movies, ad campaigns, and music videos. She has appeared in commercials for world-renowned clients such as Ford, The Gap, and Miller Lite. In 2002, Barksy appeared in "Austin Powers in Goldmember," alongside Mike Meyers. She also landed roles in "Monster-In-Law" (2005) and "Miss Nobody" (2010). Barsky has brought her talent to music videos for artists such as Outkast and Meat Loaf, and appeared as a dancer for the Dixie Chicks at the Country Music Awards. In addition to acting and dancing, Barsky's natural charisma has led her to host various shows, from the Spike TV Scream Awards to the Asian Artist Awards.

Barsky's passion for filmmaking has also inspired her to become a producer. She has served as a producer for "Alpha Males Experiment," as well as "A Guy Named Murphy" (2007) and "Allison" (2006). Barksy is married to Paul Alessi, her "Alpha Males Experiment" co-star.
