‘hills’ alum audrina patridge heads to space! (or close enough)
Last we reported on Audrina Patridge, the “Hills” alum had inherited the NBC travel show, “1st Look,” from former “Bachelorette” star Ali Fedotowsky. On the weekly series, which airs every week after “Saturday Night Live,” Audrina acts as a personal tour guide by introducing viewers to the country’s best in nightlife, food, activities and more.
Since taking over hosting duties, Audrina has attended the Triple Crown races, enrolled in Cirque School and even learned how to flyboard. (That’s when you walk on water. Literally.) But most recently, the Bongo model made her way into space! Well, sort of… She made a trip to Space Camp in Huntsville, Alabama.
Audrina uploaded a great composite pic of her gravity-defying adventure for “1st Look” to her Instagram page, and we have to say, we’re impressed. Girl can even make a spacesuit look sexy!
According to the Space Camp website, the weekend program includes “model rocket construction and launch (weather permitting), training on our astronaut simulators, including the 1/6th gravity chair and Multi-Axis Trainer, plus hands-on spaceflight history education amid one of the world’s largest spaceflight collections.”
While we’ve never experienced training quite like this, we could totally get into operating controls and a gravity chair! Stay tuned to see when you can watch Audrina become an astronaut-for-a-day.
