Considering her father’s popularity, Brooke Ellen Bollea prefers to be called by her stage name, Brooke Hogan.

Brooke was born in Tampa, Florida on May 5, 1988 to Hulk Hogan (Terry Jean Bollea) and Linda Claridge. She also has a brother named Nick Hogan (Nick Bollea).
In 2002, Brooke was signed by Continental Records and started working on the album titled “Brooke Hogan: This Voice” but it was never released, even after the album’s lead single “Everything to me” featured on Hot 100 Singles and Billboard Hot 100. In 2004, she went on tour with Hillary duff and the Backstreet Boys to promote the album.
She was also a part of an hour long profile, “Inside Out: Hulk Hogan, Stage Dad” with her father in an effort to promote the album. But as the saying goes, ‘No effort goes waste’, VH1 turned the idea into a reality TV series, titled “Hogan Knows Best”. This series started airing in July 2005 and became the highest rated series in VH1’s history.
The series was a peek into the personal life of the Hogan family. In 2006, Hogan became the first artist to be signed by Storch Music Company. Later, she also got signed with SoBe Entertainment. Her lead single “About Us” premiered in the second season of “Hogan Knows Best”. The song reached no 33 on Billboard Hot 100.

She also became the youngest FHM cover model in the same year to promote her album.

After signing a dual contract with SoBe Entertainment and Fontana Records, Hogan started working on her second album and was also seen as a panel judge on America’s Prom Queen in 2008. After the discontinuation of the series “Hogan Knows Best”, she was signed by VH1 to feature in her own reality series “Brooke Knows Best” in 2008.
