Anna Simon Marí (born 9 August 1982) is a legendary Spanish television host. Anna has her journalism degree and has been on television for a full decade. She first appeared on channel TeleTaxi, and then began regular appearances on "Estas no son las Noticias" ("This is Not the News") on channel 4 (Cuatro). Anna is a familiar face on Spanish-language television, though apparently, she hasn't done any work in the United States. I know, you probably have never read of Anna Simon before. Well, that's what we're here for! That's all right, a picture says a thousand words.

Anna has been on numerous Spanish television programs pretty much continuously since she got out of school. Anna is renowned for her fabulous good looks and her bubbly personality. She does not take herself, or her material, too seriously. Anna also appeared on TV3, in "Tvist" and "Divendres" ("Friday"). Anna was the hostess of "Tonterías las Justas" ("Just Nonsense") on Channel 4 beginning in 2010. That led to another show the following year, "Otra Movida" ("Once Again"). Another classic appearance was on the singing competition show "Tu Cara Me Suena" ("I Recognize Your Face") for 20 episodes on Argentine television, which appeared on Antena 3. She came in 6th.

Ann also sings in many of her appearances, she doesn't just show up and toss off a few jokes or mug for the crowd. While many of her efforts are Spanish songs, she also performs U.S. hits like "Girlfriend," "Ironic" and "I'm So Excited." Anna maintains an active Twitter account, where she has about 2 million followers. Anna also is credited with writing her own gags, at least on "Divendres." Another show graced by Anna's presence is "Me Resbala" ("I Slide"). She is still on that one. In addition, she is on "Zapeando" ("Zapping"). So, she is on two television programs at once. Anna has had guest spots on other programs, too, such as "La partida de TV3" and "Alguna pregunta més?" Anna has over 550,000 Instagram followers. She posts a lot of pictures of her dogs along with the obligatory "candid" snaps of herself. Anna hails from Barcelona, Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain. They speak with a lisp there.

Anna apparently is returning to "Tu Cara me Suena" as part of a duo with Ana Morgade. They will imitate the duo Brown Sugar. Anna is so famous that there are "doubles" of her. Other girls try to make themselves look like her, dress like her, and act like her. However, Anna Simon is quite unique.

She also is kind of a pop culture star far beyond her television shows.

One could think of her as the modern Benny Hill. However, Benny Hill was a frumpy but funny man, and Anna Simon is not frumpy.

Anna also can pass as a serious rock singer.

And she can come up with funny bits on the spur of the moment. Another famous actress that Anna resembles is Lucille Ball, but with a sexier edge. Or maybe a modern Charo. Anna Simon is sure to be around on Spanish television for years to come.
