Melissa Caplan, AKA Mel, is a self-proclaimed "mommy's girl." She's also tatted, athletic, and mad hot.
Mel, as everyone calls her, grew up in the Magic City, attended Michael Crop Senior High School and graduated from Pensacola Junior College in 2007.
Competitive by nature, 5'9" Caplan will be heating up the basketball court as a shooting guard once bikini basketball season starts. "I have always been into sports my whole life because my mom put me in every sport you could think of since, like, the day I came out of the hospital."

Does this wonder gal have any weaknesses? "Well, my attitude is that...I will turn that perceived weakness into a strength." Yeah, we didn't think so either.
As competitive as she is, Mel is really all about supporting her teammates. "My role is just to make sure I help my teammates throughout the season, because if we all put in the work, the results will come!" Atta girl!
We look forward to watching Caplan and Miami Spice trample their opponents next year. Oh and Santa, if you happen to be reading, Mel has a message for you. "I would want Santa to give me more tattoos!"
