Nova100 Radio Host
Having almost clinched victory on reality television not once, but twice in years gone by, Chrissie Swan is hoping she’ll have the edge over the competition to keep her cool in the MasterChef kitchen.
As one part of the ACRA award-winning NOVA100 Melbourne breakfast radio show Chrissie, Sam and Browny, Chrissie has been getting up early since 2016 with co-hosts Sam Pang and Jonathan Brown to make mornings more fun.
Runner-up in the inaugural series of TV phenomenon Big Brother in 2003, Chrissie then turned her hand to radio presenting, going on to host multiple #1 breakfast shows across a long and successful career.
In 2010 Chrissie joined Network 10’s new morning show, The Circle, alongside co-hosts Yumi Stynes, Gorgi Coghlan and Denise Drysdale. In 2011, she won the TV Week Logie award for Most Popular Female Presenter and was nominated for the highly prestigious Gold Logie. She went on to host Can of Worms on Network 10 in 2012 and earned a further Logie nomination for Most Popular Female Presenter for the 2013 live version. She returned to Network 10 in 2017 to co-host The Great Australian Spelling Bee and Long Lost Family.
Spending six weeks in the South African jungle in 2015 on the inaugural season of I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! was a transformative time for Chrissie, where, as second runner up she won many fans with her candour and can-do attitude. An animal lover, Chrissie is also an ambassador for the Lort Smith Animal Hospital.
A published author of Is it just me? (Confessions of an over-sharer), Chrissie is also a very passionate home cook and to set foot inside the hallowed MasterChef kitchen is a dream come true for this down to earth mum of three.
Drawing on nostalgia and years of cooking with love for her own young family, Chrissie will no doubt share her contagious sense of joy with the judges alongside her food, keeping her fellow cooks entertained along the way. Only time will tell if Chrissie will hold the trophy aloft as the last cook standing on Celebrity MasterChef Australia 2021.
