This year Bar Refaeli, Erez Tai, Assi Azar and Lucy Ayoub will host the Eurovision Song Contest in Tel Aviv. This is the second year running we have seen four people host the Contest, however last year was an all-female line-up.
The official Eurovision Song Contest website provided brief biographies on each of the Hosts:
Bar is an international supermodel and is one of the first Israeli models to appear on the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition. She has a wealth of experience in presenting and broadcasting, having created her own model casting show Million Dollar Shooting Star in 2012. Along with a successful modelling career, Bar has also hosted several primetime TV shows, such as the Israeli version of The X Factor in 2013.
Erez has 25 years of broadcasting experience, having developed, produced and hosted a number of primetime hits, including ten seasons of the hit reality show Big Brother. Erez is also known for creating and hosting TV game-show The Vault, which has sold to 23 territories worldwide, making it the most successful Israeli game show format in the world. Erez featured as KAN’s Eurovision commentator in 2018.
Assi is one of Israel’s top television hosts and screenwriters, whose credits include hosting Israel’s Rising Star, the national selection for the Eurovision Song Contest. OUT Magazine featured Assi in its global 100 Most Influential Gay People listing.
Lucy is Israel’s most promising new talent, who rose to fame as increasingly influential YouTuber. She has grown to become a well-known TV host and delivered the results of the Israeli jury at the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest in Lisbon.
Do you think four Hosts set-up is a good idea or do you prefer the more traditional two Hosts set-up? The last time Israel hosted the Contest in 1999, it was the first time we had a three Hosts set-up (2 female, 1 male). Let us know your views in the comments below and on our Social Media feeds.
