Lacey loses out on TV job

The Southland Times - - TELEVISION -

Mar­ried at First Sight par­tic­i­pant Lacey Swanepoel has missed out on the TV host­ing job she ap­plied for.

Swanepoel was one of sev­eral Ki­wis who ap­plied to be re­al­ity TV chan­nel Bravo’s lo­cal host in New Zealand.

How­ever, Bravo an­nounced yes­ter­day that the job had gone to so­cial me­dia star and model Cas­sidy Mor­ris.

Swanepoel’s ap­pli­ca­tion for the job was made pub­lic when she fea­tured in a video posted on the Bravo web­site.

If she’d been suc­cess­ful, Swanepoel’s Bravo as­so­ci­a­tion would have been her se­cond time on tele­vi­sion.

She mar­ried, and quickly sep­a­rated from, hus­band Luke Ce­d­er­man on Mar­ried at First Sight.

Mor­ris, the suc­cess­ful ap­pli­cant, was born and raised on Auck­land’s Hibis­cus Coast and has been mod­el­ling since age 6.

She re­cently re­turned from a year liv­ing in the US, where she min­gled with high-fliers like Kylie Jen­ner and Post Malone. She has more than 33,000 fol­low­ers on In­sta­gram.

The press re­lease an­nounc­ing Mor­ris ap­point­ment said it was her ‘‘vi­brant on-screen pres­ence, con­fi­dence and pas­sion for the brand made her a clear stand-out and ul­ti­mately se­cured her the role.’’

Mor­ris’ job with Bravo will in­volve cre­at­ing so­cial me­dia con­tent, con­duct­ing in­ter­views, and rep­re­sent­ing Bravo on tele­vi­sion, online and at events.
