Freeskier Kristi Leskinen is a Superstar, Officially
Text by Christian Camerota
Kristi Leskinen has skied all over the world, throws rodeo 720s, almost went pro in wakeboarding, and has graced the pages of everything from FHM to ESPN the Magazine. And tonight at 8 pm EST, ABC aired the finale of her latest project, The Superstars, a reality show that pairs Hollywood celebrities with professional athletes to take on assorted physical feats. The big news (in case you missed it): Kristi and her partner, Dancing With the Stars's Maksim Chmerkovskiy, won the whole thing. (Watch it on Hulu.com.)
The 28-year-old took time out from kayaking and biking along Newport Beach to talk about her recent footrace with Buffalo Bills wide receiver Terrell Owens, her favorite ski spots, and her Olympic aspirations, among other things.
