Which 'Real World' Cast Member Was Just Drafted By A Pro Soccer Team?

Heather Cooke was the Hard Rock Hotel's mid-season new girl on "Real World: Las Vegas," and now, she's one of pro soccer's freshest faces. It just so happens that the Washington Spirit, a professional soccer team, drafted our girl for the upcoming season!

Cooke has wasted no time basking in the glow of her achievement. "Time to get in the best shape of my life!" she tweeted after the announcement. Sounds like this "Real World" alum could totally dominate should she ever enter "The Challenge."

The big news comes after Cooke's successful Division 1 tenure as a defender for Loyola University Maryland, where she earned all-conference honors as a four-year starter. Since then, she's documented her experiences playing overseas for the Philippine Malditas on Twitter, but now, she's back stateside and ready for some intense competition, which includes my sister, for the record...so keep it clean, Cooke!

+ What do you think of Cooke's pro ambitions paying off? Send your congratulations, and keep up with the team's schedule if you think you can make a game!
