TV STAR WEEK! What Jade Catta-Preta of E!’s The Soup Binges (Long List!)By Delaina Dixon | February 19, 2020 | Entertainment
Jade Catta-Preta is the new host of E! Network’s revived The Soup. Born in Brazil, Jade has been perfecting her comedy on stages across the country in English and Portuguese. Now this Latina beauty is bringing her own sense of funny to the series that pokes fun at reality TV and social media. Here, she answers the DivaGals’ burning questions.
How are you making The Soup your own?
I’m not from America, for one. I’m an immigrant so I have the immigrant experience to add. I actually watch the shows we skew. I’m a fan, so I make fun of them in a different way. I’m kinda looking up at them. And now there’s TikTok and the morning shows and the judges’ shows in the mix. I watch so much TV and finally, they’re paying me for it.
What are some of your guilty pleasure shows?
I love Love Island UK. I’ve lost my life to that. It’s like 50 episodes per season. It’s a human experiment; they isolate these people and we get to watch it. I love The Bachelor, I’ve gotten into that the past few years. I’m a Housewives fanatic for Beverly Hills. Lisa Rinna is my favorite. My 600-lb Life, 90 Day Fiancé — I miss Cheaters. I really hope we do throwbacks so I can touch on that one.
What’s your favorite style?
I like to be comfortable; I’m kind of a boot girl. And not dressing like other people dress. I like to show skin. Could you imagine me just hosting the show in a bikini?
Your favorite type of fitness?
Health and wellness are really important, I think people overlook it. Your body has to feel good for your mind to feel good. So I’m really into yoga, things like that.
Your top beauty secret?
Drink lots of water, wash your face every night and try not to go to bed wasted.
Catch Jade on The Soup Wednesdays at 10 p.m. on E! Network.
