I just watched the first season of the OC and the most beautiful girl on the show is Haley played by Amanda Righetti. :wub: She's gorgeous, talented and cute.

Biography by askmen.cm

why we like her?

In our humble opinion, Amanda Righetti's energy and undeniable beauty make her perfect for titillating FOX TV fare. Amanda's sex appeal is palpable; we long for the day we might get the chance to palpate her.

why is she famous?

Amanda Righetti found overnight fame as Hailey Nichol on the hit FOX series The O.C. in 2004. The next summer, she got more exposure (in every sense of the term) in the Hawaiian melodrama, North Shore.

Having spent her childhood in permissive Las Vegas, Nevada, Amanda Righetti grew up in a hurry. But that didn't dull her sense of adventure or her faith in her own talents: she took a Vegas-sized gamble on acting in Los Angeles, which paid off handsomely with a role on the hit show The O.C. in 2004.

Amanda has had less success on North Shore, for which she left The O.C. in 2004, but the setting of sand and surf is an even better showcase for beautiful Amanda. Even the show's expensive set budget ($850,000 per show) can't compete with Amanda as eye candy.

biography

Amanda Righetti was born on the outskirts of Las Vegas, Nevada. The youngest of eight children, she has six sisters (one of whom is now a dealer in a Vegas casino) and one brother. Growing up in Sin City, Amanda had some unusual experiences: "One time I was walking down Paradise Road," she recalls, "and this guy pulls up and says, 'How much?' I was like, 'I'm not a hooker!'... It was one of those 'only in Vegas' things."

Amanda was outgoing as a child, and a bit of a tomboy. "I used to get into fights with boys all the time," she admits. Once she hit her teen years, Amanda grew up fast, partying and having some tumultuous, almost soap-operatic relationships with boyfriends.

Soon Amanda was eager to strike out on her own, so she moved to Los Angeles to pursue an acting career. Ironically, her first gig was on the Las Vegas-set CSI in late 2001, which she followed up with an appearance in the movie Angel Blade (2002).

From there, Amanda was cast in the lead role in a FOX TV pilot called No Place Like Home, produced by Chris Keyser and Amy Lippman. The pilot was not picked up to be made into a series, but Amanda received crucial exposure, and FOX executives remembered her when they were casting a role that would prove to be Amanda's ticket to stardom.

That role was Hailey Nichol on the hit series The O.C. After her first appearance midway through the show's first season in late 2003, Amanda made a dozen more in the months that followed, winning over fans as the rebellious daughter of Caleb Nichol. But her success, ironically, would take her away from The O.C. during its second season.

amanda on north shore

Amanda's rising stardom and popularity convinced FOX executives to cast her in their new O.C.-esque summer series, North Shore. She replaced fellow O.C. actress Navi Rawat as Tessa Lewis before North Shore aired, with an understanding that if the new show, set in Hawaii, didn't pan out, she could return to The O.C.

Sure enough, despite its pricey sets and exotic locale, North Shore looked to be in trouble as FOX cut back the number of episodes to air in late 2004. Since then, there have been rumors circulating that the show would be canceled (despite regular appearances by Shannen Doherty), but they haven't yet been confirmed. Meanwhile, Amanda reprised her Hailey Nichol role on one episode of The O.C. in November 2004.

Amanda's most recent project is Romy and Michelle: In the Beginning (2005), a made-for-TV movie in which she took a supporting role. Splitting her time between Los Angeles and Hawaii, Amanda is engaged to Jordan Alan.

Having spent her childhood in permissive Las Vegas, Nevada, Amanda Righetti grew up in a hurry.

Amanda has also shown off her considerable style during TV appearances on On-Air with Ryan Seacrest and The Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn, as well as in magazines like FHM.

personality & talent

Possessing an overall sunny disposition, the fun-loving Amanda Righetti impresses us with her charm and good humor. But even she can have her "moments of complete grumpiness," she confesses, such as when she's shooting on location in sweltering heat.

Regarding her acting talent, it's obvious Amanda has a knack for playing the mischievous and unpredictable bombshells that are the bread and butter of prime-time soaps. But Amanda still needs to prove herself in serious drama, or at least in considerably different roles, before we can confidently acknowledge hers as a talent to keep an eye on.

sexiness

It's no coincidence that foxy actresses find fame on the often-sleazy FOX network, and Amanda Righetti is no exception. We believed every second of screen time when she played the volatile and nubile Hailey Nichol on The O.C.; in real life, Amanda has been just as wild. "There just aren't enough hours in the day when I can go on an exotic hike and start having sex under a waterfall," she laments when recalling she hasn't been able to make love outdoors for years.

Indeed, it seems that Amanda, after party-filled teen years, has lost a little bit of her sexy edge. Feeling she's in a "mellow stage of life right now," Amanda is now engaged to Jordan Alan. But all we need is one good O.C.-style plot twist in Amanda's personal life to bump her sexiness rating right back up again.

accomplishments & fame

Once Amanda Righetti came of age, she headed west from her native Las Vegas to Los Angeles to become an actress. But unlike many raw young hopefuls on similar migrations, Amanda found success in relatively short order. Her appearance in a discarded FOX pilot led to her being cast on The O.C. and, from there, to a leading role on North Shore. While we give her credit for her acting success, it remains to be seen whether Amanda can turn these opportunities into a successful long-term career.

As a relative newcomer, Amanda has broken out of the "unknown" category, but has yet to achieve widespread stardom. She's solely known for her work on The O.C. and, more recently, on the ailing North Shore. Until she pads out her resume with meatier and more varied roles, her fame will be limited to recognition by prime-time soap fans.

natural beauty

Amanda Righetti's brown eyes and brunette locks add a touch of vixen to her good looks, but her fresh-faced beauty gives her a wholesomely delectable aspect. Amanda is helped in that department by an infectious smile that gives her nose a cute little crinkle when it spreads across her face.

Considering that her acting work takes place in the super-sunny locales of Southern California and Hawaii these days, it's no surprise that Amanda has a gorgeous tan on her svelte and youthful form. Although she's not the most curvaceous woman around, we have little cause to complain about her appearance, especially after she did a bikini spread in FHM.

personal style

Amanda Righetti knows her clothes. She likes patterned, embroidered jackets and pointy-toed high heels. Whether she's wearing flared trousers or a provocative zip-up dress with a silk blouse, Amanda always looks sharp -- especially when she accessorizes with an Abbey Branch bag (she's extra partial to the black Murphy II and the cyan Fandango travel bag).

For less dressy affairs, Amanda will make do with a baby tee; but even then, she'll have stylish pants and shoes to go with it. She's just as serious about beach fashions: "I want something with a little less coverage" to minimize tan lines, she says. For that reason, Amanda prefers a Brazilian cut, and if it's a fiery red, so much the better.
