James Xuereb considers himself to be a very down-to-earth and open minded person who enjoys life. Having this approach has helped him become who he is today. He’s someone who’s very determined and enjoys a challenge. At the age of 29, he’s made his dream come true by opening up his exclusive bridal shop.
“It’s such a nice feeling when you have brides who find their perfect dress at the salon and you get to see very different emotions. I’ve always loved media and in these past three years, I’ve been producing and presenting two television programmes.”
At the moment, he’s presenting Wedding Plan, aired every Tuesday on NET TV, where different wedding-related topics are discussed weekly.
From next January to March 2016, James will be presenting World Next Top Model Malta, which will also be aired during the same slot mentioned above. World Next Top Model involves 30 models who will be placed in 6 teams. They will be supported by various sponsors such as hair stylists, make up artists and photographers. The final night will take place on the 2nd April 2016, and the winner of WNTM Malta will represent the country the following July.
Can you describe your state of mind when presenting?
I just go with the flow. I really feel at ease in front of the camera.
What, in your opinion, is the best thing in life?
Health is the best thing as without it, you are nothing.
What can you not live without?
This might be a bit silly, but my mobile phone is a big part of my life, as I use it for many things.
How would you describe your relationship with money?
I’m not lucky, but I can’t complain, really. I can say that I’m a hard worker and a very determined person. You have to work hard to make money.
Speaking of money, what do you mostly spend your money on?
Well I don’t have many hobbies, but my passion has always been wedding dresses, so I’d better not let you know how much money I spend on those.
What do you usually look for when you travel abroad?
When it comes to travelling, I look for nature and also for adventure such as zip-lining and skydiving.
