The eight Kiwi finalists for a Bravo TV role

An exciting opportunity!

Bravo New Zealand has announced eight finalists in its search for a Kiwi to become its first-ever local host.

These finalists come from hundreds of entries received after Bravo embarked on a nationwide hunt for the exciting TV role. These lucky eight will now be interviewed by a panel of judges, including Woman’s Day Editor-in-Chief Sido Kitchin, and the Bravo Team.

The successful applicant will feature on Bravo’s linear channel and across the brand’s social and digital platforms, and provide local coverage of the hottest events around the country as well regular updates on Bravo’s new and most-loved programming. The lucky winner will be announced at a glamorous event in Auckland in mid-November.

The eight finalists are:
