TV Stars' First Jobs
Before becoming a glamorous model, actress and co-host of Dancing with the Stars, Brooke Burke was rolling in the dough...literally. When Brooke was 15 years old, she landed a part-time job at her hometown pretzel shop. "I did everything," she says. "I baked the pretzels. I worked the cash register. I cleaned up the place."
More than 20 years later, Brooke rolls up her sleeves to see if she still has what it takes to make a tasty twist. Brooke reports for duty at an Auntie Anne's® Pretzels shop to train with Farid.
After donning a signature blue apron, Brooke learns to make pretzel dough. "When I worked at Mr. Pretzel, they were frozen," she says. "I just had to thaw the pretzels out and then pop them in the oven and bake them."
Once the dough is ready, Brooke tackles the hard part—the twist! Farid says he can twist 40 pretzels in just three minutes, but it takes Brooke a little longer to perfect her technique. "It's all in your wrists," she says. "It's not easy."
