Wifey Of: Cole Hamels, Philadelphia Phillies (MLB)
Hamels, still known as Heidi Strobel, was a relative nobody until the spring of 2003, when she appeared on the CBS show Survivor: Amazon. After finishing in fifth place, she was chosen to throw out the first pitch at a minor league baseball game in the spring of 2004. She caught the eye of a certain future Major League star named Cole Hamels, who would go on to marry Strobel on New Year's Eve in 2006.
She also parlayed her Survivor fame into a Playboy cover spread in March of 2004, and although it was only for the European editions, the spread will likely be her longest-lasting contribution to American pop culture.
