Biography

American TV personality, the lovely Entertainment Tonight correspondent got her professional start as a reporter for Channel One News, which broadcasts to schools across America. She was hired by Channel One when she was a senior at Boston’s Emerson College. In addition to her work for the cable news channel, she produced, hosted and wrote news segments for both a local and college channel and, in 1999, she made an independent film called "George’s Auto."

As a teen, in 1995, she enrolled in beauty pageants and in 1996, won the title of Miss Massachusetts Teen USA. At that time she told pageant host and Entertainment Tonight Reporter Bob Goen that she wanted to work with him at ET. Six years later, in 2002, she got the job. In 2004, she earned praise for her beauty and poise when she worked at the Oscars in a diamond-studded dress worth more than $2.5 million. ET executives have offered her other hosting jobs. An activist, Menounos formed Take Action Hollywood! to raise social awareness by enlisting the help of the entertainment industry.

Born to a Greek immigrant family who worked cleaning nightclubs in the Boston, MA area. She was not a thin child and claims she gained 40 pounds her freshman year in college. By 1999, she had slimmed down enough to come in second at the Miss Massachusetts contest. Menounos makes enough money from her star-studded job to support her parents. Single in 2004, she has five dogs
