Lacey loses out on TV job
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.
