Ellen Jokikunnas

Ellen Jokikunnas

Ellen Jokikunnas (b. 18 November 1976, in Janakkala) is a Finnish model, PR manager and television presenter. She is best known for hosting all three seasons of Idols, but her first fame came from competing in the Miss Finland pageant in 1998. Besides Idols she has hosted the children's quiz show Suuri kupla ("Big Bubble"), as well as her own travelling show called Ellen Express

Jokikunnas has three brothers and sisters: Emil, Anton and Ida. She has lived in Turku, but moved later to Helsinki, and has recently bought an old railway station from Nurmijärvi, which she is renovating as her new home. The renovation is documented on TV on Joka kodin asuntomarkkinat. She is also known as an active traveller, who survived the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake in Sri Lanka.

Jokikunnas experienced some questionable publicity when her insinuations about Pamela Anderson's breasts and hepatitis C while hosting "Raumanmeren juhannus" ("The Midsummer Festivals of Rauma") in 2007 – where Anderson was a VIP performer – caused a stir in Finnish tabloids.
