Originally from Mississauga, Ont., Wendy Crystal brings years of experience in marketing, modelling, and interviewing celebrities — having worked for companies such as Italian jeweller Sorgentoni and Reel TV — to her role as a host at TSC. She spent six years as a Center Director and Motivational Speaker at Jenny Craig, managing three locations throughout Mississauga and Toronto. During this time, Wendy experienced a transformation of her own — she lost 30 lbs and never looked back.

Following her time at Jenny Craig, Wendy moved from Mississauga into the heart of Toronto to pursue a career in the entertainment industry. It was during her contract with Ford Models — which brought her to places such as South Africa and Germany, in addition to many runways for Fashion Cares and Toronto Fashion Week — that she eventually found herself modelling for TSC's catalogue. During those eight years, Wendy took every opportunity while at TSC to make her dream of becoming an on-air host come true. She was eventually given the opportunity to be a guest during a LightStim show, following which she immediately asked to audition to become a host — and the rest is history!

Wendy cites her love of fashion, beauty, and home products as an "occupational hazard," having been both a TSC shopper and viewer for over 15 years. Among her favourite brands are Perricone MD, Korres, Aimee Kestenberg, Artizan, Wolfgang Puck, and KitchenAid.

She has been married to her high school sweetheart for 15 years, and the two just welcomed their first child, a boy named Liam, to the family 13 months ago and could not be happier.

In her spare time, Wendy enjoys scrapbooking, baking, cake decorating, and organizing and re-decorating anything and everything!
