Sofia Vergara is one of Hollywood's biggest stars nowadays, but that wasn't always the case! The funny Latina--who is now the highest-paid TV actress--had to participate in her fair share of commercials and lesser-known projects before rising to fame.

In fact, when Vergara was younger, she actually appeared in tons of advertisements for companies like Pepsi, Bally Total Fitness, and more. Unlike her endorsements today however (which coincidentally includes Pepsi again and CoverGirl), the majority of her earlier appearances seem to mostly focus on Vergara walking around in--what else?- a bikini (cue the sighs of men around the world). But if the videos prove anything, it's that Vergara looks even better these days than she did back then! 

Below, check out 5 clips that show Vergara long before her Modern Family days:
