Bridget Maasland (Den Haag, 9 November 1974) is a Dutch VJ and television presenter and producer.
She worked as a model and appeared on the catwalk in fashionshows for children. Her debut on television was a commercial for fruit as a healthy alternative to candy.
Later, Maasland became a professional model, working in Barcelona. She returned in 1993 to the Netherlands to become a showdancer and assistant in the Veronica show, Man O Man.
In 1995, she started working for TMF where she gained popularity as a VJ and presenter. Five years later, she left the music station as one of the last presenters of the first wave to start working for the Dutch National TV station BNN. BNN is especially targeted at a young audience, and her sexy profile fitted the bill perfectly. She presented shows like Lijst 0 (politics with a sexy twist, together with Katja Schuurman), Een Beetje Bridget, BNN At Work, Neuken doe je zo! (explicit sex education), The national IQ test, The Bridget Triangle, BNN presenteert AVRO's Sterrenslag and Katja vs. Bridget.
For a more universal audience, she interviewed the teams in both series of the Dutch version of Robot Wars (the role Phillipa Forrester and, when she was off, Julia Reed and Jayne Middlemiss, had in the main (UK) version of the Robot Combat gameshow). In the first series a team named Blue, who dyed their skin blue prior to the event, communicated only by handing notes to her, or with their Mouthpiece
After a couple of years with BNN, she decided in 2005 to move over to the newly formed commercial station, Talpa of John de Mol, where she gained the possibility to produce television shows herself. However, her first job was to present Big Brother 5 together with Ruud de Wild. A year later she presented Big Brother 6 on her own.
Other shows included her own production, Je leven in de steigers (based on Extreme Home Makeover), the newsprogram NSE, Woef! (own production about dog training), the talkshow Late Night met Maasland & Geel and Hoe word ik een Gooische Vrouw? (a satirical take on how to become and behave ladylike).
In the end of 2007 Bridget moved over to the commercial station RTL Nederland because Talpa officially ceased to exist. On August 27 Bridget's new show "Hoe Word Ik Een New Yorkse Vrouw?" started. It has the same concept as "Hoe Word Ik Een Gooische Vrouw?"
