Ok so theres been some pretty cool acting gigs of late for yours truly. Very different to the TV shows I’ve hosted. Clearly the casting agent didn’t realise I was an ex-reality TV freak. Have a gander and let me know what you think.
Ben Hannock and Me
$80k for a Toy Hammer signed by Thor aka Chris Hemsworth and over $30 for race car driver Ian Talbot to shave his beard. Just some of the funds raised during the madcap cruise aboard The Yot on the Gold Coast where I hosted my second annual Aussie Kidz fund raiser. This organisation helps where the NDIS and other charities can not. Mainly disabled or underprivileged kids who need help are given whatever they need to make life easier for them and their families. Truck Wash King Ben Hannock was there and in fine form scoring the Thor Hammer. Many other Gold Coast and Brisbane socialites were a part of the action including Charli Robinson from Getaway, High Five and ex-Sea FM. Special thank you to Trenton Gay and the Gay Group of companies for supporting the event in a big way. What a legend! See you next year.
World Record holder Blake Leeper is a double amputee with a shot at the 2020 Olympic roster. No thats not a typo, we didn’t say Paralympic, he’s already won all the medals and smashed the records there. Blake wants to win gold at the Olympics and he’s not stopping until he gets it. Unfortunately Blakes quest has been stalled by what he calls racism in the Court of Appeals for Sports. You see the It ruled that World Athletics could stop him from competing since his prosthetic leges gave him an unfair advantage, making him taller than if he were born with legs. Problem with that ruling is the data used to get their findings was compiled from European and Asian men, not anyone of African decent. Blake has an amazing story and is one of the most positive people you could ever meet. Everyone could learn a thing or two from this sporting hero.

Episode Zero has launched. Watch them all, every week during Big Brother at 7news.com.au in the Big Brother Zone.
Yes, I’m very excited about my new show! Not just because I’m in it, because I am shooting it from my house. Seriously. So cool! Thank YOU COVID 19. Never thought I’d say that. I’ve been part of the Big Bro furniture since 2001, so I’m not sure whether that shows how valuable I am to the franchise or if Big Bro has a little crush on me. Maybe there are cameras in my house, I don’t know. One thing is for sure, the best show in the known universe is back. Every week I will be breaking down the show and then probably breaking down myself. Hey, its entertainment right? We will look at the housemates and examine everything that they’re doing on the show with a few friends popping in along the way to give their opinions. Episode zero will look at the house, housemates announced so far , and what BB has revealed. Hopefully Sonia K will pop by for our first episode. Oh, that reminds me, it’s time for my strictlyyou.com.au dance session with Sonia. See you at 7news.com.au/entertainment
