Robert Dumas is a 30-year-old model/freelance broadcaster who was recently contracted as a host for the cable network, BET. Dumas will host at least six episodes of one the channel’s newest programmes, which will be centred around T&T lifestyle.

Prior to this, Dumas worked as a project co-ordinator with Trinidad Systems Ltd for at least two years. In 2003, the well-built lad returned to T&T after an 11-year hiatus in England.

He spent those years travelling throughout Europe, while attaining his degree in business management in Germany and doing a few modelling gigs in several countries including Austria.

On his return to T&T, Dumas gave business a short try but was more attracted to entertainment. “I became enticed by the entertainment industry, due to a past girlfriend who was in the field. It was all very intriguing,” he said.

He has been dabbling in the world of the arts and entertainment ever since.

Most recently, he hosted the Miss T&T showcase where representatives were selected to compete in the Miss World and Miss Universe pageants.
