A former Miss America, Carlson provides the lightest possible fare to FOX's morning show. Squeamish -- during a June 2007 broadcast she had to leave the stage of Fox & Friends, cover her ears and sing when the other two co-hosts were discussing the story of California logger Al Hill, who had to sever his own leg with a pocketknife. One of the other co-hosts remarked that Carlson had chosen an unusual profession for someone with such a condition.

As a child, her occasional babysitter was a neighbor's daughter, Michele Bachmann.
