Courtney Hansen (born Minneapolis, Minnesota in 1978) is an American Tv personality and host, syndicated columnist, author and actress.


After graduating with a degree in Marketing from Florida State University, she undertook a corporate job in Marketing. After leaving corporate work, Courtney hosted the Jack Nicklaus pilot Killer Golf and segments on the Travel Channel, worked as a fashion and fitness model, and was on the cover of Hot Rod Magazine and Muscle & Fitness. She was named one of FHM's "100 Sexiest Women in the World 2005."

Courtney currently hosts Spike TV's Powerblock, which is composed of 4 half-hour automotive shows. She also hosted a recent special for Spike TV called "Great Builds." She is the host of Fox Sports Net's travel adventure show "Destination Wild". The show received a Telly award for best travel & recreation show on cable. In the past she was the host for TLC's automotive-themed shows Overhaulin', Rides and Million Dollar Motors. Courtney has been a spokesmodel for Matco Tools, Dodge and Rolls-Royce. Her participation in Overhaulin was purely superficial; she helped out with the disassembly and assembly of cars for the show but was planned out camera segments by the producers.

Additionally, she wrote a column for FHM magazine, currently writes a nationally syndicated automotive column titled "Courtney Hansen: Full Throttle", and is the published author of The Garage Girl's Guide To Everything You Need To Know About Your Car, a book offering women & first time car buyers advice on how to care for their cars.

On March 20, 2010 Hansen married Ilya Sapritsky.
