Michele Merkin is a model who is currently the host of Foody Call, a TV show produced by Style Network. Born in San Francisco of Swedish descent, Michele attended boarding school in England before studying medicine at U.C.L.A. While there, however, she was offered the chance to model in Europe for such magazines as Elle, Marie Claire, Harper’s Bazaar, and Vogue. Success in that arena led her to do more than 75 commercials, ranging from soft drinks and hair care to finance and electronics.

She was also the model for promotions for the video game Perfect Dark. Michele is the host of The Style Network’s newest sensation, “Foody Call”, and the GSN series “Extreme Dodgeball,” celebrity edition. Each week Michele helps make over an average guy by transforming him into a culinary Casanova on The Style Network’s hit half hour series “Foody Call.” This lighthearted series features a little cooking, a little decorating, and a lot of laughs, showing bachelors the way to a woman’s heart. The program air every Monday evening. Michele provides on-court commentary and interviews on the highly anticipated third season of “Extreme Dodgeball.” The new season will premiere on Tuesday, July 19th at 10PM ET.
