Tyler Rasch is a TV personality, environmentalist, and author living in South Korea. Originally from the United States, Tyler wrote his university thesis on North Korean Law, then worked for the US-Asia institute and the Korean embassy in Washington DC, before moving himself to Seoul and becoming an unlikely sounding celebrity. He’s been a cast member of several award-winning and intriguingly named TV shows – Non-Summit, Where is my Friend’s Home and Problematic Men. The latter has been described as a talk show with a cast of "men with hot brains". Tyler drinks a lot less than he used to, while living in a place that’s been described as ‘the country with the world’s worst drink problem’.
Comedian Guy Williams got his funny training in early, with a mum who kept Jerry Seinfeld cassette tapes on repeat.
Siouxsie Wiles is the pink haired science lady who’s been a regular feature of New Zealand’s journey through Covid-19. Besides being a distinctive visual feature of our news landscape over the past year, she also collaborated with the Spinoff cartoonist Toby Morris to create their ‘Flatten The Curve’ animation which became one of the defining pieces of Covid science communication and took on a globally viral life of its own. She was recently named New Zealander of the Year in recognition of her leadership throughout the pandemic. Siouxie used to drink but gave up when drinking alcohol began to make her feeling nauseous, and hasn’t looked back.
Dai Henwood is a comedian and an expert in punning his name, creating the shows Dai-namic Scenarios, Dai another day, Adapt or Dai and Roll the Dai, and a website called DaiSpace. He’s also the captain of team two on the hit TV3 show Seven Days. Like most comedians, Dai graduated with a degree in eastern religions. He won the award for 'Best New Face' on TV2’s Pulp Comedy in 1999, the Billy T Award in 2002 and the New Zealand International Comedy Festival’s Fred Award in 2007. Then, after famously being the pissed comedian on C4 television, he began to experiment with periods of sobriety before giving up booze entirely in 2018.
Jimmy Hunt is a mental health change maker, passionate about raising awareness. He floated on a Lilo 425 kilometres down the Waikato River and built the world's longest water slide. He is also the founder of charity Live More Awesome and has published three books. His latest is Inside Out: The Ultimate Guide to Becoming a Better Human. If that wasn’t enough to fit into a bio, Jimmy was also a New Zealander of the Year finalist in 2014. And that long water slide? It holds the Guinness World Record. Oh, and probably the least interesting thing about him is that he doesn’t drink – mostly because he didn’t ever need alcohol to loosen him up.

It’s no exaggeration to say that Dr Michelle Dickinson is a National Treasure. She has a PhD in biomedical materials engineering, but is most famous for her alter-ego, Nanogirl - a super-hero character all about making science engaging for children – especially girls. She's written two best-selling books, is a member of the New Zealand Order of Merit, kite-surfed with Richard Branson, explained COVID-19 to kids with Jacinda Arden and designed dresses for Icebreaker.
