Hossaini and her family fled from Iran when she was a child, and after living for a few years in Sweden, they settled in the UK. Hossaini started school in the UK at the age of 13, and was educated at Great Wyrley High School, a state comprehensive school in the large village of Great Wyrley in South Staffordshire, England. She says that she felt culturally different from the other pupils, some of whom "had not even visited London", while she had lived in several countries. Nevertheless, she performed well in her GCSEs and A-levels before going on to Oxford Brookes University, where she obtained a 2:1 LLB Hons. Law degree. She has lived in four countries and speaks five different languages.

Hossaini became the target of an online campaign of abuse during the airing of the series who thought wrongly she was Muslim. She was branded a "bitch" by the bullies who thought she was Muslim and failed to respect their faith with other comments including "You don't deserve your surname." and "Melody is a bitch for eating sinful food". In reality though Hossaini practices the Zoroastrian religion which places an emphasis on good deeds, thoughts and words.

Hossaini made it to week ten, before being fired by Lord Sugar 'with regret'.
