“Maxim’s most international model EVER!” – MAXIM UK
“In Hawaii, Kea Ho basically counts as royalty.” -PLAYBOY
Kea Ho is a one-woman powerhouse poised to take the world by storm. The daughter of international icon Hawaiian music legend Don Ho and hula dancer mother Elizabeth, Kea was born into the glittering world of showbiz. From the age of four she was singing and dancing in her dad’s live stage show in Waikiki.
From her iconic heritage, to the pages of international magazines, to TV, film, music and fashion, Kea Ho is in a class all her own. Refusing to be pigeonholed — as just a socialite, model, actress, singer, host, or fashion designer — Kea does it all and does it with heart.
Kea’s appeal and charisma have captured the attention of Hollywood directors, appearing in popular TV shows including FOX’s “Lie to Me” with Tim Roth, HBO’s Entourage, CBS’s “Miami Medical”, and the CW’s “Melrose Place”. Kea most recently shot a featured role in Adam Sandler’s upcoming film “Just Go With It.”
Kea is known for her ultra-exotic look and has been featured in magazines internationally. She was recently declared by Maxim UK to be their “most international model EVER!,” while iconic men’s magazine Playboy chose Kea to be featured in their August 2010 issue.
Kea’s rare mix of Hawaiian, Chinese, German, and Portuguese from her father, and Spanish, Mexican, English, Native American and Czech from her mother, has given her not only a unique niche in the modeling and entertainment world, but international appeal. Kea has appeared in international high-fashion magazines including Cosmopolitan Hong Kong, Marie Claire Latin America, Vogue Taiwan, Look Hawaii, and SELF China to name a few, garnering international popularity on the modeling front.
Kea’s stage experience has led her to become a sought-after host in fashion, music, and nightlife. Aside from numerous red-carpet and club venue events as one of the top glamour models in LA, her hosting experience includes red-carpet corresponding for Who’s Next What’s Next LA Fashion Week, co-hosting The Southern California Slack Key Guitar Festival, and Summer Solstice at the Playboy Mansion Benefitting Rescue Humanity. Raising awareness and humanitarian efforts are also close to Kea’s heart.
Kea is an up-and-coming music artist who’s worked with many of the top producers in New York and LA, as well as headlined her own live shows. Her recently launched swimwear line inspired by music, LOVECHILDE, has opened to rave reviews. Look out for this triple-threat’s new music and fashion coming soon.
