Jaime Bayly Letts is a writer and journalist. He is the third of 10 children and is known as "el nino terrible" (the terrible boy) and as "La Chola Gayly" (the indigenous gay)
A student at Markham College, an English private school in Lima, and later at Colegio San Agustin of Lima, Bayly's academic performance was not good, as he spent most of his time playing soccer. In his early youth he was coerced by his mother to work at the daily newspaper 'La Prensa' in order to become more responsible through a part-time job. He spent every afternoon after school at the office until late at night and journalism became his passion.
Bayly's first late-night show, '1990 en America', got the attention of TV audiences and critics. The following year he hosted a copy of David Letterman's Late Show called 'Que hay de nuevo?', which was highly popular.
