About Michele Merkin
Michele is not just a pretty face, but she has the brains to back it up!
Born in San Francisco and of Swedish descent, Michele attended boarding school in England before studying medicine at UCLA. When Michele began her modeling career as a sophomore in high school, it came as no surprise to her mother. Standing at 6 feet tall, modeling has been in her genes: her mother modeled for over a decade, and most notably was Victoria’s Secrets very first.
Michele went on to model for the next 16 years: living in Paris, Milan, New York and Los Angeles. She appeared not only on catwalks, but in countless fashion magazines, and over 80 commercials worldwide.
Bored with only being considered as just a “pretty package,” Michele wanted to be herself and to share her personality with others. Currently, Michele is one of the most in-demand female hosts. Whether hosting a reality show like ABC’s “The Next Best Thing”, a sports show like “Extreme Dodgeball”, a makeover show like “Foody Call”, or an entertainment show like “The Weekend Show for Extra”, she’s always having fun and finding ways to make to have her personality shine.
