Lauryn Eagle (Water-ski and boxing champ)
Vince Sorrenti (Comedian)
Fiona O’Loughlin (Comedian)
Ben Dark (Getaway)
Tania Zaetta (Bollywood actress)

It airs on Nine later this year.


  1. What a waste of money. Who the he’ll wants to watch this. Lauryn is a champ boxer?? She boxed for a month and got no where.. Desperate call to be famous.. And the rest well I would rather watch grass grow

  2. The worst line up a bunch of wanabes,no talent desperate to get their mug on tv.what was nine thinking.. Patti newton david hasselhof you have got to be kidding.

  3. OMG. All those that think it’s a crap line up. Don’t watch it! I think it’s a great line up and will be watching so will therefore be able to have an informed opinion!

  4. Few quick points..

    -Thanks Nine for listening to my recommendation of Fiona. You won’t be disappointed.
    -Charlotte Dawson is quickly becoming the most recognized and consistent person of the Australia’s Next Top Model brand. They need to give her hosting duties or get a huge global name to fill in from Sarah Murdoch
    -So with The Block underway in production as well as CA now beginning filming.. When can we expect these shows? My money is on Nine no longer being confident in Excess Baggage and are anticipating to replace it not long after it’s premiere..

  5. @ Andrew Mercado too right! Cannot believe this Z-list non-entity was even considered for this show. Let alone in it! The only intersting aspect of her “apperanace” will be to see what ‘charity” she is supporting in light of her own recent “chairty” issues…just Google; you’ll see…

  6. my money is on Marion for the win…smart lady and totally charming.
    This year’s Demi Hines to be Jason Akermanis. The most arrogant, self centred bloke i’ve ever met in my life. He won’t last a week.
    Dark Horse: Fiona O Laughlin….will win everyone over no doubt.
    What i wont miss: Jason Coleman saying “Mr Bouris” 20 times in every sentence.
