Don't stare at this badass babe for too long -- she knows kung fu.

Melissa Riso seems like a woman right on the edge of a breakthrough. She’s gone from doing styling work for models, to modeling herself, to background work in TV and music videos, to having a list of credits that include classics like 'Badass!,' 'Jingle Dead II' and 'Timid Pimps.' So yeah, she’s been climbing the ladder.

One more fun fact about Melissa: she trains in Krav Maga, in the hopes she’ll land a big-time action role. So she’s hot enough to light the camera on fire and she could kick your ass. We’d hire her.
