Dr Chris Brown, the host of “I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!”, is reportedly being replaced by a familiar face. Rumors suggest that Sam Pang, known for his appearances on TV with a blue buzzer or beer in hand, may be stepping into the role. In addition to this potential new gig, Pang has been confirmed as the host for the 2023 TV WEEK Logie Awards, solidifying his status as a rising star.
Sam Pang is best known as a permanent panellist on “Have You Been Paying Attention?” alongside Ed Kavalee and Tom Gleisner. He has also co-hosted Eurovision with Julia Zemiro, serves as a breakfast radio host on Nova100 with Chrissie Swan and Jonathan Brown, and co-hosts “The Front Bar” with Andy Maher and Mick Molloy. With an impressive CV, Pang is generating excitement among Channel Ten executives, who believe he can bring a fresh spin and comedic genius to “I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!”.
According to a “network spy,” the show’s viewers enjoy a good laugh, and Pang’s ability to find humor in even the most serious situations is seen as a valuable addition. If Pang secures the role, he will join comedian Julia Morris as they guide celebrities through the challenges of the African jungle, all in the name of charity. This change in host would mark the first time the reality program has seen a shift since its premiere in 2015, and it will coincide with the show’s 10th season.
