Colin Mathura-Jeffree

Colin Mathura-Jeffree is a model, actor, host, performer and general man-about-town. He is best known as the wild-haired, lamington-throwing judge on New Zealand’s Next Top Model and has consistently created a stir in the Home Baker kitchen for the last four series.

Colin has worked in the fashion industry for over 20 years both in New Zealand and internationally, frequently modelling in India, the UK, Singapore, Hong Kong and Australia.

He starred in the Bollywood movie Love Has No Language with Miss India Celina Jaitley, and was the horse riding, sword-wielding King of India in Xena: Warrior Princess as well as recently having guest roles on America’s Next Top Model and TV3’s Would I Lie To You? He regularly features in the social pages, and in 2011 took out the prestigious title of Metro Magazine’s ‘Sexiest Man’. Last year he celebrated his 40th birthday with such a lavish event, it was chalked up as the party of the year in various publications, and saw him being named Man of the Year in the A-List society Awards.

If the combined knowledge and talents of the judges create the perfect mixture, the flamboyant and fabulous Colin is definitely the cherry on top!

“I’m going to have a hilarious time whipping, beating, & licking my way through the series” he says.

“I’m so happy to return for the fourth series – it’s the best yet.”
