Janez Vermeiren is a South African model, property trader, entrepreneur and television presenter best known for starting out as a handyman on the SABC3 magazine show Top Billing, before progressing to fulltime presenter.

He was also a co-presenter of the travel series Top Travel, a sister show to Top Billing, both of which are made by Tswelopele Productions.

Janez was born in Cape Town in 1978 and grew up in a liberal and open-minded family. School years were spent at Camps Bay school and after matriculating, Janez spent a year backpacking through Europe.

As his family is of Belgian origin, he decided to study in Belgium and spent four years there. A year studying archaeology made him realise he wanted to pursue follow a more creative path in life and so pursued further studies in interior design, graduating in 2000.

On his return to South Africa at the end of 2000 he was offered a modelling job, so with little money to his name he decided to give it a go.

The first job he was booked for was a worldwide Fanta ad and since then he has shot over 100 local and international brands, as well as having worked for hundreds of international catalogue and advertising clients.

In 2001 Janez won Cape Town beach competition Mr/Mrs Clifton and in 2003 he entered and won the Men's Health Look of the year.

As Storms top male model for five consecutive seasons, he was well prepared to move on to start his own model agency, Full Circle Model Management, which he did in 2007. The money made from modelling he has invested in buying, renovating and selling properties.

Having a father who is a famous South African artist has exposed him to the world of art and design, which has greatly influenced him in his life.

His parents took him along on their regular travels to Europe and the East when he was younger fuelling Janez’s passion for travelling to the "far end of the earth and meeting new people from different cultures".

He keeps active by running, playing tennis, and going to the beach. He says he enjoys working and playing hard in equal measure.

In 2014 he starred with Lunga Shabalala in the SABC3 reality series The Man Cave.
