Who knew the Big Bang Theory's Bernadette Rostenkowski-Wolowitz could be such a babe? Actress Melissa Rauch goes dominatrix in the December issue of Maxim in a skintight, strapless black leotard.

Holding leather straps in her hands, the True Blood alum, 33, tells the magazine that unlike nerdy Bernadette, she has never actually stepped in to a Cheesecake Factory. "However, I am similar to Bernadette in that we both spent some time waiting tables," Rauch says. "I worked at a sports bar in New York City during college. It was before fantasy football was online, so people would come in with their notebooks. One time I spilled a pitcher of beer all over someone's fantasy notebook. It really f-cked up his draft."

The comic actress, who is married to writer Winston Beigel, emphasizes the importance of humor in a relationship: "I absolutely love a funny guy," she says. "I am a sucker for it. It's my number one requirement." As for the guys who are still living at home, like her on-screen husband, Howard Wolowitz (played by Simon Helberg), Rauch has one sliver of advice: "Don't have your mother fold your underwear," she quips.
