Her name, in case you were wondering, is Sabine Ehrenfeld. (Now you know what to Google on.)

And I think she had her peak hotness in the original Overstock.com promo... she's not as hot in some of the more recent commercials.

You mean she's not Diane Lane? I could have sworn she was Diane Lane.

I to think she is attractive. I like her style in the commercial where she "hot" in a reserved sorta way, then she lets her hair down, then she's a little more "loose" and "hot". I like the commercial to, IMO. Has that clean, sophistication look to it, and oh yeah, a pretty girl.

And I like how she say's: "99% of the time." in the commercial.

;)

I think shes kinda good looking, but... isnt she a bit old to be trying to act hot like that? In a few shots you can see the wrinkles around her eyes and mouth. It strikes me as humorous when old women try to act hot, as apposed to actually being hot.

Yeah, she's actually around 40 or so, and I think I read somewhere that she has a couple of children... still, gotta give her props for looking as good as she does. (Love that German-inflected accent, too... first time I heard her, she reminded me of Connie Nielsen.)

Here's more about Sabine.

Sad that I don't even recognize her....I guess I'm not watching enough tv.

Anyone have a link to one of her commercials?

There's a link to the commercial in clayj's link.

Edit: Some more interesting tidbits for the fans:

In addition to German and English, Sabine speaks French and Italian. She is proficient in basic tactical pistol skills, because she thought it would be a fun thing to learn. She also has a private pilot's license and 350 hours in the air. After reading the Richard Bach book Biplane, she was inspired to fly solo—in an old-style, aerobatic tailwheel plane—from California to Montana. With camping gear in the back so she could land along the route to sleep and refuel. I am not making this up.

Glad I'm not the only one who found her attractive. I like her little hair toss. :cool:

Talking about commercials, that girl from the Olay commercial where she is taking a lie detector test, now she's hot!

She creeps me out in the comercials shes way to calm and shes just average on the atractive-ness (i think thats a made up word) meter.

I think she is quite hot. But then again, not being a teenager she seems perfect to me...

:rolleyes:

Other than the fact that she is already married*.








* Note that I'm already married too so it isn't that big a loss. ;)

I haven't seen the ad before. She is a very nice looking lady. The commercial is quite interesting.

wait till your 40! :D :p

She looks good for 40 - and it may be the demographic they're trying to appeal to, who knows.
