But Tricia Helfer isn’t just any farm hand. She’s a Victoria’s Secret model and a Hollywood starlet.
She’s also Number Six, the beautiful bad-ass alien on the cult TV series Battlestar Galactica. As if that wasn’t enough to keep her busy, she also hosted the first season of Canada’s Next Top Model.
