Elisabeth Hasselbeck as you've never seen her!
Before she competed on "Survivor" and became the expressive conservative voice at the "View" table, Hasselbeck was like any other elementary school kid — glasses, braces, and completely different hair.
Born in Rhode Island, Hasselbeck attended St. Mary School in the city of Cranston and graduated high school from St. Mary's Academy Bay-View in Riverside. Besides being a brunette back in the day, she also sported quite large, hot pink glasses. Hasselbeck was a talented softball player. She attended Boston College where she captained the softball team.
The folks at Snakkle.com have gathered together a bevy of pictures of celebrities who they dubbed as "nerds to knockouts."
