The veterinarian and former I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! host, who officially joined the network this month after announcing his departure from Channel 10 in February, will team up with Gold Logie nominee Sonia Kruger for the gig on July 30.
During an appearance on Triple M’s Mick & MG in the Morning on Thursday, Chris admitted he doesn’t think he’s the best person to be reporting from the red carpet.
“Can I just tell you, it is one of the more stupid decisions ever made by the Seven Network to put me on the red carpet,” he remarked. “I know nothing about fashion, and I am also colourblind.
“So the joy that I’m going to have in telling women that I love their green dress and going to be told it’s red… what could possibly go wrong? The insulting nature of my commentary is going to be worth it.”
It was announced earlier this week that Chris and Sonia would be joining forces to cover all the action from Australian TV’s night of nights.
The Dancing with the Stars host said in a statement from Channel Seven that she’d like to thank the network for giving her an “early Christmas present”.
“I couldn’t be more excited to be working with Chris Brown on the amuse-bouche to the main event, the main course if you will, with the very tasty Sam Pang,” she said, referring to this year’s Logies host.
“Chris has such great, natural charisma and a brilliant sense of humour. With my brains and Chris’ beauty, this red-carpet show is going to be fresh, fun, unpredictable and bigger than ever. It will be one of the best nights ever for both the television industry and the viewers at home. I can’t wait.”
'Honestly can’t wait!'
Chris also shared that he “genuinely can’t wait” to work alongside Sonia for the very first time, describing her as “naturally funny, fearless, flawless and a party animal”.
“As far as I’m concerned, Sonia Kruger is the Logies,” he said.
“There's a real excitement around the Logies being unpredictable this year. However, luring Sam Pang off the green of the local golf course to host might be the wildest swing of all. I honestly can't wait!”
The gig will be Chris’ first major role with Channel Seven since he joined the network’s line-up of personalities.
It was also announced last month that he will host two brand new shows in 2024: an unnamed adventure series where he travels around the globe “in the pursuit of the ultimate animal encounter”, and a renovation competition series titled Dream Home.
“To be able to bring my world of animals to life in an original, adventurous and breathtaking way truly excites me,” he said. “I can’t wait for the world’s wildlife and the search for Australia’s best dream home to land in our lounge rooms in 2024.”
