MIAMI BEACH - Sports reporter and Today Show fashion contributor Jill "The Thrill" Martin was down in Miami Beach taking a break from her hectic schedule.
Jill alternates her time between appearing on the Today Show and reporting on behind-the-scene stories on the NBA's New York Knicks.
Martin visited Miami Beach and she certainly improved the scenery by a country mile. The attractive blonde was photographed wearing a small white bikini swimsuit that could best be described as erotically risqué.
When she is on the Today Show Jill demonstrates that a woman does not have to have the salary of a Hollywood celebrity in order to dress exceptionally nice.
She has appeared on the show looking very good and then she'll remark that her blouse cost $7, her skirt cost $9, and she bought her shoes on sale for $3 reduced down from $89.
Miss Martin says she searches for deals on cosmetics as she has been known to purchase name brand make up such as Revlon Lipstick for 32 cents, Maybelline Eye Liner for 19 cents, and Cover Girl Mascara for 4 cents.
Jill says that it is all about patience. She stressed that if a woman takes her time she can find some fantastic deals that can save her as much as 97 percent on the final cost.
Martin said that one day last week when she was out shopping with a girlfriend of one of the New York Knicks she found a heck of a deal on Kotex Tampons. Jill said that she purchased a big box of 144 tampons for $1.79.
She giggled and said that there was nothing wrong with the merchandise other than the fact that the box had been opened and two of the 144 tampons were missing.
In regard to the New York Knicks. Jill said that she was the very first reporter to break the story about Knicks star Amare Stoudemire being afraid of the dark.
She said that the 6 foot 10 inch, 240 pounder sleeps with a Lone Ranger night light located right beside his bed.
Jill also was the first to write that Knicks center, 7 foot 1 inch Timofey Pavlovich Mozgov from St. Petersburg, Russia, can speak 11 different languages including Mandarin Chinese, Costa Rican, and Mescalero Apache.
Jill Martin is currently single and she says that she does not really have much time to date but that she does manage to get in a 'quickie' every now and then.
