Born March 6, 1985, model Albert Reed was featured in national ad campaigns for Abercrombie & Fitch, Diesel Clothing, Arrow Clothing, Rayban and Reebok, to name a few. The free-spirit also walked the catwalk for Chanel, Levis and Michael Kors. Growing up in Miami, FL, Reed surfed competitively into his late teens, winning several titles. He was also an actor, musician and artist.
In September 2007, Reed partnered up with Anna Trebunskaya for season five of "Dancing with the Stars" (ABC, 2005- ). Unfortunately, due mainly to lack of audience recognition, he was the second celebrity voted off the popular reality dance competition - but not before doing a hip-shaking Latin dance that wowed the audiences and caused the judges to comment that it was almost "stripper-like."
