Brooke Hogan should be a very familiar name. Hogan, the daugher of WWE legend Hulk Hogan, had a brief music career and a gig on the reality television series Hogan Knows Best. The show went downhill following some family issues, and Hogan attempted to find her way in professional wrestling alongside her father in Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA). Hogan has since stayed out of the public eye for the most part, but resurfaced in an episode of Glow on Netflix and on The Challenge: Champs vs. Stars season 3.
Here is more information, including the charity she is playing for from the official MTV bio:
No stranger to the spotlight, Brooke Hogan has literally grown up on camera, as the daughter of famous pro wrestler Hulk Hogan and star of her own series, Brooke Knows Best. And as a former pro wrestler herself, this current actress/ singer/songwriter has an intimidating physical presence that will have most other females shaking in their boots. The charity she’ll be playing for is PETA: People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals https://www.peta.org.
Hogan was initially scared to return to reality television, but ultimately decided it was worth it in order to raise money for her favorite charity.
“I was all things scared,” Hogan said, via TV Insider. “I don’t watch TV very much, so I didn’t realize the show had such a cult following and what a big deal it was. … I think that I can be a positive force in this business rather than be a part of the negativity and cattiness. I feel like my purpose on this Earth was to spread good and be a good role model.
“I thought, ‘Hey, it’s a challenge. It’s a competition. I’m athletic. This might push me and test my boundaries, and I’m up for it. And it was for charity. I was able to compete for PETA, so it was all positive.”
The current season of MTV’s The Challenge: Champs vs. Stars airs Tuesday nights at 10:00 p.m. ET.
