Host of The Amazing Race (Latin America)

Hometown Santa Maria, Colombia

Maria Victoria Montoya Maya, better known as Toya Montoya, is the current host of the Latin American version of The Amazing Race. She is a model and TV presenter.

Born in Santa Maria, Colombia, she studied advertizing at Universidad Jorge Tadeo Lozano de Bogotá. She became a model and is currently the face of two prestigious clothing brands in the country.

When Montoya was 16, she began parading in school pageants and was offered a modeling position by Hernán Zajar. She took the position, setting in course her dizzying career, giving up her previous career path as a publicist.

In 2009, Montoya fell in love with television and decided to take a risk, giving up on her modeling carer and becoming a TV host. Her first job was covering the National Beauty Contest of Colombia, which only reinforced her dream of becoming a host. She later went on to host Challenge 2010: The Fight of the Regions, The Gold Bracelet.

Montoya competed on the third season of Latin American Amazing Race with her boyfriend, Juan del Mar. For information on their performance in the race, see their article.

In 2013, it was announced that she would be the host of the fifth season of the Latin American version of The Amazing Race. This makes her the first female host of The Amazing Race ever.
