Fee Range: C

In the summer of 2007 what was initially a crossover promo for MTV Australia as a guest host on TRL in New York turned into a permanent gig and the start of a new life for Lyndsey Rodrigues. She's the first Aussie to sign on as a host with MTV's frenetic music video countdown show, TRL (Total Request Live) but it's a natural step on the road to success for the former MTV Australia VJ.

Lyndsey began her foray in entertainment at the tender age of three when her dream was to be a prima ballerina! 13 years of dance classes plus 8 years of acting equals a girl who was completely surprised to find herself as a TV presenter! That, however, is exactly what she became in early 2005 when MTV Australia offered her a hosting gig on the Aussie version of TRL. During her time at MTV Australia she also lent her hosting skills to shows and events such as MTV Australia Video Music Awards, the ASTRA Awards (Australian Subscription Television and Radio Awards), Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards, Pantene Young Woman of the Year Awards, MTV Snow Cave, MTV Beach House, MTV Full Tank and MTV News.

Since relocating to New York City and taking on co-hosting duties on TRL, Lyndsey has also co-hosted Tila Tequila's New Year's Eve Masquerade 2008 and hosted The Real World Sydney and Hollywood Reunion Special, America's Best Dance Crew Season Premiere and The Hills Season Premiere and Finale. She has interviewed the who's who in music, film & television, such as Foo Fighters, Chris Brown, Maroon 5, Fergie, Denzel Washington, Mariah Carey, Janet Jackson, Cameron Diaz, Jessica Alba, Snoop Dogg, Good Charlotte, Jennifer Aniston, Robert Downey Jnr, Gwyneth Paltrow, Will Smith and more.

Lyndsey's background in modelling has led to her gracing the pages of Cleo, Cosmopolitan, Dolly, Girlfriend, In Style, OK!, Seventeen and Maxim magazine. She has also appeared in commercials for Sunkist, Sony, Differin and Johnson and Johnson.
