Michelle Hunziker was born Michelle Yvonne Hunziker in Lugano, Switzerland on January 24, 1977, to a German-speaking hotel manager father, and a Dutch-speaking mother. She moved to Berne where she attended elementary school, then at the age of sixteen along with her mother, relocated first to Bologna and then to Milan. Her earliest studies were in languages, giving rise to her ambition to be an interpreter. On reaching Milan, she converted to fashion modeling, and by the age of seventeen she was working in television campaigns and billboard advertisements for top labels, including Colmar, Armani, and Rocco Barocco.

As a popular lingerie and bikini model, Michelle was eventually discovered by a television producer, who knew the attractive teenager would be suitable for an acting career. She found work as both a television co-host and as a dramatic character in a Italian miniseries. From there she moved on to television comedy, while at the same time finding additional television hosting jobs. She continued with her education and was soon attending the M.A.S. academy in Milan with choreographer Susanna Beltrami. Her beauty generated much popularity and many more offers, including her first film role, and subsequently an appearance in a documentary.

Michelle won an Italian television award in 2001 as Discovery of The Year. In 1998, she married Italian singer Eros Ramazzoti, and later gave birth to daughter, Aurora. Afterward, she was able to land some roles in English films, including "The Protagonists" and "Ancient Warriors." She successfully recovered her figure after childbirth, and was soon posing for photo shoots in Maxim, GQ, and Max magazines. It was only natural for her to be hired as an emcee for Germany's version of American Idol. From there, she moved on to become a presenter for the World Idol in 2003.
