THE LAST WORD: Osher Gunsberg
Osher Gunsberg is one of Australia’s most recognised and dynamic media personalities. Relocating to Los Angeles in 2011, Osher made history by becoming the first Australian to host a live, prime time network show in the US when he worked with Paula Abdul on the CBS show Live To Dance. Osher is also an accomplished photographer and in 2010, held his first solo exhibition in Sydney. In 2013, Osher launched into independent broadcasting with The Osher Gunsberg Podcast, Let Me Tell You Something and Malone’s Movie Minutes. This year Osher will return to our screens as host of the much-anticipated fourth season of The Bachelor Australia and second season of The Bachelorette Australia.
I grew up in … Brisbane, Australia.
The first thing I do when I wake up is … humbly ask the universe to please give me what I need to get through the day.
If I could be better at anything it would be … cooking.
I am at my happiest when … doing great work surrounded by great people.
When I am not working I am … on my bicycle.
I wish I could … have an “empathy ray” that I’d shoot at unreasonable people (it would also need to work through the TV).
My biggest fashion blunder was … all of 2003/2004.
Most people don’t know that I … sang in a barbershop quartet.
When I was growing up I wanted to be … a rock star.
I couldn’t live without … my family.
My greatest achievement is … learning that I need to get out of my own way.
My most annoying habit is … being too focused to notice things.
My hidden talent is … I’m pretty handy at audio post-production.
