Your Own Show: Oprah’s Search For the Next TV Star airing on the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) welcomes Daisy Fuentes as guest mentor for week six. In this week’s episode, “Do It With Style” the contestants will write, direct and edit a Kohl’s commercial. The model and TV personality-turned business mogul was born in Havana, Cuba but then fled to Madrid, Spain due to political turmoil. She and her family later moved to New Jersey. Daisy is credited as being the first Latina MTV VJ and as Revlon’s first Latina spokesperson signed to a worldwide contract. Who better than Daisy–with her own line at Kohl’s–to help the finalists with this week’s task. In addition to her clothing line at Kohl’s, Daisy also has a fragrance line, hair care line, jewelry line, home collection and accessories collection.
Daisy has appeared on TV shows including Cybill, Dream On and The Larry Sanders Show. Daisy can also relate to the contestants and can provide insightful advice for them since she hosted her own talk show from 1994 to 1995 on CNBC. She was also the host of America’s Funniest Home Videos from 1998 to 1999. Daisy also hosted Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve, The ALMA Awards, the 1998 World Music Awards, the 1999 Billboard Latin Awards, as well as numerous pageants.
The remaining six contestants on both teams include Elizabeth, Terey and Kristina for Team Vision and Ryan, Zach and Alicia for Team Focus. The heat was on last week in the kitchen now it’s time to see who can do it with style!
