Jodhi Meares ditches Next Top Model

Model and swimwear entrepreneur Johdi Meares has dumped her hosting role on Australia’s Next Top Model after a number of dismal performances in front of live audiences.

James Packer’s former wife not only refused to host this year’s July finale of the fourth series of the reality TV show, she didn’t even attend the event.


Only months ago it was widely reported Meares had taken solace in The Church of Scientology. Her former husband James Packer had once been a devotee of the quasi-religion with it’s range of controversial pay-per-view self-improvement beliefs.

At the time friends said far from helping the former Tigerlily owner, the group’s beliefs have simply fuelled the 36-year-old’s insecurities and her failure to accept her break-up with Packer.
