"Extra Weekend" Co-Host/Correspondent
Australia native Renee Bargh joined "Extra" in late 2010 and will continue her role as "Extra Weekend" Co-Host and "Extra" correspondent for the show's 20th season.
Renee has quickly become one of Australia's emerging talents and has begun to carve a name for herself in the US. During her tenure with "Extra," she's interviewed some of Hollywood's biggest stars (John Travolta, Bon Jovi, Nicole Kidman, Johnny Depp, Cameron Diaz, Usher) and has covered all of the major events in Hollywood, including the Academy Awards, the Golden Globes, among others.
Renee has already proven her versatility as a performer with hosting, modeling and pop careers behind her. Renee has become one of the most popular television presenters on Australia's Channel [V] and co-hosted "What You Want," Channel [V]'s studio countdown show, host of the weekly V Rater and the V News, and presented two series on B430, Channel V's youth travel show, taking her to Budapest, New Zealand, New York and Los Angeles. Additionally, Renee has hosted numerous red carpet events, movie premieres, the Arias, The Astra Awards and an array of festivals including two live broadcasts from the Big Day Out, a ten-hour broadcast from Sound Relief, Splendour in the Grass, Homebake and Good Vibes. Before joining Channel [V] in 2009, Renee's first hosting gig was on Channel Nine's surfing adventure series, Surfari. This was a dream job for Renee, cutting her teeth on the getaway-style format, profiling the very best surfing locations around the Pacific.
Prior to her television career Renee was a member of the pop group Girlband, and released two well-received singles and supported a national tour with The Rogue Traders before disbanding in April '07. Following the split, Renee ventured into the world of television where in 2007 she joined Tim Campbell as co-host of "National Bingo Night" on Channel Seven.
Hailing from the beautiful Byron Bay, Renee relocated to Sydney to fulfill her dream of becoming a full-time performer. Bargh graduated from Brent Street Performing Arts College, where she honed her skills as a dancer, singer and performer.
Renee currently resides in Los Angeles.
