Who Is Melody "Mel" Rae Kandil? The 'Dash Dolls' Star Is A Passionate Model & Sports Fanatic

If you're a fan of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, then there's a good chance you'll watch the reality show's newest spin-off, Dash Dolls, which follows employees of the Kardashians family's Dash stores. Seeing as Kim, Khloé, and Kourtney Kardashian have a lot of employees, it might be confusing keeping track of who's who. Well, that's why I'm here to introduce you to one of the many employed by the Kardashian ladies who will be featured on the new show: Dash Doll Melody "Mel" Rae Kandil.

Per the show's website, Kandil is "a sales representative by day," but her passion is modeling. When she isn't taking orders as a Dash doll, Kandil takes her modeling seriously. She once modeled for Sports Illustrated magazine and based on her Instagram, it looks her resume is quite large. I'm sure with her exposure on the E! reality TV show, she'll probably book even more gigs.

Like Khloé, Kim, and Kourtney, Kandil (another "K" name!) has faced her fair share of rumors. In February 2015, reports surfaced that she was dating Russell Wilson. Obviously, those rumors have been put to rest, because the Seattle Seahawks quarterback is dating Ciara and they've been very open about it.

Per Sports World News, it looks like Kandil was quite the sports star back in her day. The site reported in February, "Kandil once received a full basketball scholarship at the University of Tenneesee-Martin, though she left school to pursue her career full time." Throughout her Instagram, she's shared plenty of photos supporting her favorite teams, because she just loves sports that much. Well, seeing as how the Kardashian family is competitive at times, I think she'll fit right in.

There you have it. I'm sure you'll learn even more about her and the other stars once the Dash Dolls premieres on Sunday, Sept. 20.
