For those who are unaware, Joey Mead King enjoys a distinguished career as a working model and TV host. This Filipino supermodel, who can change her appearance for the camera like a chameleon, has done a lot of work in Asia and has also worked for FORD Models in New York and Los Angeles. Joey is one of the most sought-after personalities in the world of fashion, from lifestyle to runway, editorial to commercial, thanks to her vivacious personality and love of hard work.

When Joey entered our living rooms as the first Filipina VJ for Channel [V] Inter-Asia, the cameras fell in love with her. Her unmatched charm, silly humour, and exotic features from her Persian and Filipina ancestry brought a special kind of hosting to Asia that had never been seen before. She has worked for nearly all of the Asian networks, including AXN, ESPN, E!, HBO, and FOX. Numerous Hollywood heavyweights, including Keanu Reeves, Morgan Freeman, Liam Neeson, Christian Bale, and Katie Holmes, as well as directors Francis Lawrence and Christopher Nolan, to mention a few, have been interviewed by Joey over her career. Most recently, Joey interviewed Hugh Jackman and Peter Dinklage on the VIP Blue Carpet while hosting the Asian Premiere of XMEN Days of Past in Singapore.

In recent years, Joey has also begun to speak out for problems pertaining to women’s rights and to developing young aspiring models. She took over as the runway coach for Elite Model Search and mentored the young contestants on Philippines Next Top Model. She has also played a key role in moulding contestants for different beauty pageants, including Miss Makati, Miss Resortsworld, and most recently, Century Hotbods in Boracay, where she also served as judge, runway coach, and host.

Joey, a top model with international experience, encourages young girls to continue on the right path and work toward success, empowerment, and independence in the competitive fashion industry. For three seasons of Asia’s Next Top Model on Star World, Joey was also the most adored Model Mentor.

As a fervent supporter of animal rights, Joey gives her all to PAWS, a Philippine animal sanctuary, and has created a warm home for her 3 dogs and 8 cats, all of which were saved and adopted.

As a model, host, coach, beauty writer, fashion blogger, producer, and director for her internet channel, Joey’s imagination and interests know no bounds. This charming firecracker will eventually rule the globe!
