Jay Manuel

Biography: Jay Manuel was born in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Jay, a photoshoot stylist, make up artist and guest judge, made his debut on the first cycle of America's Next Top Model as the thoughtful make-up artist and photo director who offered his sharp tongue, colorful commentary and industry expertise to help transform the girls from bland to glam.
He has worked in "the business of managing to aesthetic" for seven years. His list of clients have included Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, Victoria's Secret and Revlon. Manuel has also had the opportunity to work with such noted photographers as Herb Ritts, Richard Avedon, Annie Leibovitz, and Francesco Scavullo.
Jay's varied artistic palate and innate sense of aesthetics has given celebrities including Tyra Banks, Alicia Silverstone, Rebecca Romijn, Mya, Kim Cattrall, Iman, Garcelle Beauvais-Nilon and Vanessa Williams, Patti LaBelle, Pink, David Bowie and Jennifer Lopez.

Jay is currently set to host cycle 2 of Canada's Next Top Model.
