Marc Nelson truly is a man of the world. Graduating with a bachelor’s degree in Social Anthropology, he’s always been interested in other cultures. Since the ripe old age of 7, he as been traveling and living in all of the far flung corners of the globe. From Mauritius to Egypt, Estonia to Brazil, and everywhere in between he has managed to visit over 40 countries and lived in 7 of them. After living in such diverse countries as Tanzania, Kenya, Hong Kong and Canada as well as his native Australia, Marc found himself most at home in the Philippines. And it is in the Philippines that he found his true calling.
After tripping into modeling "accidentally", Marc quickly found himself the darling of the industry, scoring countless campaigns, magazine covers, and print campaigns. However, it wasn’t until he started to host the now long running and award winning program “Sports Unlimited” that he really found his niche. An avid athlete and sports lover, he is always game to try every challenge he has been thrown. From bungee jumping in Australia, skydiving in Guam, swimming with Great White sharks in South Africa or flying a fighter jet over an active volcano, there are no limits for this adventure seeker.
After competing in "Amazing Race: Asia Season 2" with best friend Rovilson, Marc saw his popularity skyrocket in the SE Asian region, and led him and Rovilson, along with Singaporean host Eunice Olson to partner again for "The Duke" on AXN. Currently Marc can be seen hosting "Dare Duo", and is busy running his own kiteboarding resort in Aklan Philippines for fellow sports lovers like himself.
Due to his recognition and skill as a host he is much in demand when it comes to hosting events and pageants. He has hosted the Elite Model Search, Manhunt International, Miss Teen Philippines, Mutya ng Pilipinas and Miss Philippines as well as the world-renowned Miss Earth International Beauty pageant on more than one occasion. Other pageants, awards nights and events are constantly being added to his roster.
