Today Foxtel announced the great news that Perth-born fashion icon and international model, Megan Gale will be joining the ranks of fashion celebrities on this year’s season of Australia’s Next Top Model (ANTM).
Over the decades Megan has built her hugely successful empire and career as a businesswoman, brand ambassador, TV host and producer, designer and actress and will now join the hit reality television show as a permanent judge alongside series host and judge Jennifer Hawkins and ANTM veteran, fashion designer Alex Perry.
Megan said, “I’ve loved working on the show in a guest capacity over the years and to now join the series as a permanent judge is both an honour and a privilege. I look forward to working with the girls and sharing some of my own experiences about what it takes to be a successful working model.”
“The industry can be ruthless and fickle at times, so along with the right look you need incredible drive, thick skin and a good business head to survive. It’s also important to have a healthy approach to diet and exercise and to be mentally fit as well because away from the ‘glamour’ the lifestyle can be grueling.”
Having worked as the face of many world-class brands, including cosmetic giant L’Oréal Paris and David Jones, Megan has also graced the covers of numerous magazines including marie claire, Italian Gioia, Italian and Australian GQ, Australian Women’s Weekly, Madison Magazine, WHO Weekly, Men’s Style and Italian Maxim and brings a plethora of experience with her to share with the contestants and model hopefuls.
Foxtel’s Executive Director of Television Brian Walsh said, “Season 10 of this enduring hit is sure to be a blockbuster with superstars Jennifer Hawkins and Megan Gale alongside Alex Perry and mentors Cheyenne Tozzi and Jordan and Zac Stenmark – all on the same show.”
Australia’s Next Top Model will begin production in May and will air exclusively on FOX8 in 2016.
