She was born in Tampa, Florida, the oldest child of professional wrestler Hulk Hogan and his wife Linda Bollea, and older sister of Nick Bollea.
In high school, she took dance classes, voice lessons, gymnastics, and cheerleading. She joined the squad of her Clearwater, FL school, Clearwater Central Catholic, in her freshman year. Hogan graduated from high school at the age of sixteen.
Her Musical CareerHogan was signed to Trans Continental Records in 2002. Some early music was produced with the help of Rich Cronin. Her first song in the United States singles charts was Everything to Me. Produced by Sheppard and Kenny Gioia in 2004 as part of her album This Voice, the single was released in July 2004. It appeared at #97 on the Billboard Hot 100, but dropped off the chart in a few weeks. The album was planned for release September 21, 2004, but this never happened.
Brooke next appeared with her father in an hour-long profile on VH1, (Inside) Out: Hulk Hogan, Stage Dad. The success of this special spawned an entire series. Hogan Knows Best debuted in July 2005 and was the highest-rated series premiere in VH1's network history. The series, which helped her become a household name, was according to Hulk Hogan intended in part to promote Brooke's music career.
In 2006, Hogan changed record labels and became the first artist signed to Scott Storch's label, initially called Storchaveli Records but later named Storch Music Company. Hogan's first single About Us premiered on season two finale of Hogan Knows Best. The album, Undiscovered, was released October 24, 2006.
Hogan appeared in the November 2006 edition of FHM, becoming the first FHM Cover Model under twenty-one. As a result, the November issue had no liquor advertising: "In the very rare instance that you might have a cover star under the age of 21, they don't want to be in the position of seeming to market to anyone under age".
Hogan next appeared in the movie Little Hercules in 3-D. A spin-off series called Brooke Hogan Knows Best is planned.
Personal lifeHer father is strict on dating. According to an interview with Hulk Hogan in Maxim magazine, he literally threw Aaron Carter out of his house after less than an hour after finding Carter to be arrogant and disrespectful. As presented on Hogan Knows Best, Hulk placed a GPS tracker on her vehicle that enables him to track her whereabouts and can even remotely shut down the engine of Brooke's car if he feels the need to do so. However, in a later interview, she reveals, among other things, that her father has loosened up a bit upon her eighteenth birthday.
