Global TV star and Spice Girl Mel B has been announced as the host of The Fashion Hero season 2. Filming for the show starts in March 2021 at Sun City.
The first season of The Fashion Hero aired in over 160 territories worldwide. “We are absolutely thrilled to soon be welcoming Mel B into South Africa and working with her throughout this iconic project,” says G2 Connection co-founder Gail Hoffman Parrish.
The Fashion Hero celebrates everyone and every body. It’s a completely new kind of reality series challenging the fashion industry’s standard image of beauty. From 160,000 registered applicants, 33 finalists will represent a diverse celebration of ethnicities, genders, shapes and sizes and will be selected to compete for the chance to be crowned The Fashion Hero.
Competing in various challenges, contestants’ self-belief, clarity and strength of character will be tested, while remaining true to themselves. The finalists will be evaluated on their inner beauty, ambition and courage. Representatives from four international brands will be appointed as show judges/ mentors and ultimately, will each select a winner to become part of one of their international marketing campaigns. One overall winner will become the face and ambassador of The Fashion Hero.
Mel B said: “Finally a show has come along that stands for everything I believe in! The Fashion Hero is my dream job because it’s not so much a television show but a movement.”
