We have a brand new, fresh-off-the-shelf presenter to present to you. This is Tony and he’s going to change lives!

So let’s get to know more about him. Not just the obvious stuff like how he’s engaged, he’s an incredible musician and went to Tamaki College. Let’s hear about those details you only discover about someone when you go on a camp with them and stay up too late and start having weird and deep convos in your bunk room. So for your reading pleasure we grilled him with some probing questions.

Why do you want to be an Attitude presenter?
Hmmm mainly cause I wish when I was at school we had some cool looking guys deliver some EPIC talks about making life better – we just had people give us condoms. Which we would use to try and put over our heads like a hat.

What Attitude topic would you have loved to hear as a student?
I would have loved to have heard the Friendship Factor talk. Not because I’m new to the job and that’s the only talk I know of. Honest.

What’s your most embarrassing moment at school?
Asking a girl out and getting slapped in the face. Yeah that was tough. She had the strongest hands too.

What are you better at than anyone else?
Playing Jonah Lomu on Playstation One.. I’l waaaste you

The only job better than an Attitude presenter would be…?
Hmmmmmmm…. Man that’s a really tough one… there are just so many… toilet cleaner, rat poison taste tester, Donald Trump’s Twitter manager… haha just kidding

If you could join a reality tv show family who would it be?
Probably The Simpsons. Oh what was that? It’s not real? Neither is reality TV 😛

What tv show competition do you think you could win?
Judge Judy

As you can tell, Tony is the man. He’s going to be an incredible presenter and we can’t wait to unleash him onto the rangatahi of New Zealand
