Miss Teen USA 2014 - Host - Karl Schmid
  • Profile

Karl Schmid


Aussie born TV presenter and host Karl Schmid has been busy taking American TV viewers on an emotional journey as host of the Logo TV show, “Operation Vacation.” The show, which debuted back in March 2013, gives one deserving person the holiday adventure of their dreams each week. This series comes hot on the heels of his current role as one of the entertainment correspondents of ABC’s “On The Red Carpet”. Karl has covered every major event ranging from the Grammy’s and Oscars, to major movie premieres and celebrity events.

It is a far cry from his native Australia, where he caught the acting bug as a child appearing on TV in local productions. When his family moved first to Fiji and later to New Zealand, he continued his acting career and appeared in several children television productions. Karl headed to London next and for many years worked with international superstar Barry Humphries (known to millions for his alter ego – Dame Edna). Karl is thrilled to be back at Atlantis hosting the 2014 MISS TEEN USA® Competition.
