After the success of our Top 20 Jews In The Arts feature, we decided to branch out to other areas of interest: Models and Sports. Over the next two weeks, Shalom Life will profile a different Jewish model or sports figure each day.

Our readers really loved the format we introduced during the Artists feature- asking the same questions to everyone involved. It allowed for us to not only learn about these icons, but also have fun comparing answers. We have carried over this same format to the Model and Sports profiles. Enjoy!

Ofer Shechter

Ofer Shechter is an Israeli actor, entertainer, model and TV host.

Shechter was born and raised in Moshav Hadar Am. At the age of seven Shechter took part in a commercial for a watermelon Ice pop that was broadcast on Israeli TV. After serving the in the military Shechter attended Yoram Levinstein's theater course and studied acting in front of a camera.

By 2002 Shechter was selected, together with a group of young Israeli hosts which included Mali Levy, Michael Hanegby and Yael Goldman, to host the Israeli youth TV show "Exit" on the newly established Israeli Channel 10. In "Exit" Schechter received a wide media exposure, not necessarily because of his hosting talent but because of the many provocations Shechter caused during the show, which most notably was the one he did during a live show in which he revealed his buttocks before the young audience. Due to his many provocations, eventually the show was transferred to be broadcast on cable.

By 2003 Shechter played in the Hot 3 telenovela "Mishak Hahayim" (Game of Life) and appeared in the Israeli children's song contest The Festigal, in 2004 he starred in the Israeli musical "Peter Pan" and hosted the music festival in Samakh. In 2005 Shechter played the lead role in the telenovela "Telenovela Ba'am" (Soap opera, Inc.) alongside Yael Bar-Zohar and in 2006 he played in the telenovela "Ha-Alufa" (The champion) alongside Yehuda Levi. In addition, meanwhile Shechter also participated in several campaigns and advertisements for Celcomm and Bamba. Shechter was also featured as the leading model in the swimsuit campaign for the Israeli swimsuit manufacturer Pilpel in 2006.

In addition, Shechter was in the regular cast of the satirical show Mo'adon Layla (nightclub). Shechter participated also in dubbing several Animated series and movies to Hebrew — amongst them Avatar: The Last Airbender and the film Cars.

Shechter currently hosts the Israeli version of the hit British series, 101 Ways to Leave a Game Show.
