Early life

Born in Broken Hill, Nikki Visser was raised in Adelaide. At age four, she took dancing classes until she was 17. Her early interest was watching and playing sport, particularly softball, which she played for six years, coached by her mother.[1] Visser also supported the Adelaide Crows in the Australian Football League.

Biography

Visser was first noticed as a cheerleader for the Adelaide 36ers, but rose to fame in 1993, when at 18 she was crowned Miss Calendar Girl Australia, after receiving the highest number of votes by the people who had bought the calendars.[1][2][3]

In 1994, a 19 year old Visser was named by Australian men's magazine Ralph as Australia's sexiest woman. Shortly afterwards, she followed that title with a fourth placing in the world only beaten by megastars such as Denise Richards and Jennifer Lopez in Ralph's 101 sexiest women on the planet.[4]

Nikki Visser appeared regularly as a co-host on Channel Seven's "The Crows Show" in Adelaide during 1996.[5] Around this time, Visser also became the television face of Forty Winks, a bedding and bedroom furniture specialist.[6][7]

In March 1997, Visser was voted the "Inside Sport" Sportsmodel of the Year.[8] She has appeared on the cover of Inside Sport four times; July 1996, July 1998, April 1999 and March 2002.

After an overseas holiday in 1997, Visser moved to Melbourne permanently in early 1998 to further her career.[1] Shortly after relocating to Melbourne, Visser established a Day Spa in Hawthorn, specialising in solariums, body waxes and sports massage.[9] Visser also graduated from Tanya Powell's Model Agency in Melbourne and subsequently became a Sale of the Century hostess.[10]

In late 1999, Visser played the role of Katie Freeman in several episodes of Neighbours.[11] She also landed the role of television presenter with OzLotto on Wednesday nights.[12]
