Starting her early career as a model, Babi made her entry to the television screen as an assistant in stage programming for the popular show Brothers Television Network & The Best of Brazil's Record. In 2010, she had a breakthrough in career when she made her way to the comedy program ""Pânico na TV"" as a panicat . Panicats are group of models in tiny bikins who dance and sing on the stage during the program and often become subjects for the show's pranks. Becoming a successful panicat by winning the hearts of male audience, Babi currently holds the record for the panicat having the longest term in the show. She had a massive career uplift by the show and Babi starred in several advertising campaigns and essays. She also became the cover girl girl of many men's magazines, including Playboy.
Her career as a panicat was met with many controversies and the most prominent one was the head shave episode. On April 22, 2012 she shaved her head live on the television. The audience initially thought it as a fake head shave but realized that it was serious and original by the end of the episode. Babi was unaware about the head shave and really shocked about the crew's decision; she tried to argue but it didn't work and the when she was crying for help, the crew mercilessly did the job. Television critics, bloggers and newspapers severely criticized the show, stating that their prank crossed the barriers. Apparently, that particular episode holds the record for the most watched episode in the show's history and had a record audience participation. "Bald Babi" became the hot topic of discussion in social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter, and with that particular episode she earned international attention and immense fame. To everyone's surprise, Babi Rossi later responded to the controversy rather mildly and said she enjoyed it.
