Asuman Krause (born 1 March 1976) is a German-born former fashion model, singer, presenter, actress of mixed Circassian and German-Dutch descent. Holding Turkish-German dual citizenship, Krause was crowned Miss Turkey in 1998. She is fluent in English, French, German, and Turkish.

Krause grew up in Germany until the end of middle school. She played for the Germany national youth basketball team. Afterwards she decided to stay with her mother in Turkey. She then became a model and in March 1998 she won the Miss Turkey beauty pageant and went on to represent Turkey at Miss Universe, winning the Congeniality award.[2] In the early 2000s, she was one of the most famous models in Turkey.

Giving up her modelling career in favour of a career as a singer in 2006, she released her debut album, Çok Yalnızım (English: I'm very lonely), with the Turkish record company Seyhan Müzik. It received some radio airplay and was compared with the likes of Burcu Güneş and Emel Müftüoğlu.[3]

She released her second album, Kukla (English: Puppet), this time with another record company, Üçüncügöz Müzik, in 2008. This was met with more success than her previous album, and the first single from that album, also called Kukla reached the 10th position on the Turkish Billboard Charts.[4]

She hosted the Turkish versions of Wipeout,[5] Fear Factor, Fear Factor Extreme, and Deal or No Deal (Var Mısın Yok Musun).
