Kate Cebrano To Host Excess Baggage Show On Channel NINE

Excess Baggage which is one of a suite of reality shows Channel Nine will be showing next year have announced Kate Cebrano will host the show.

The Daily Telegraph hints she beat a raft of people including former The Biggest Loser host Ajay Rochester. However Ajay will be a contestant on the show. The show is a celebrity version of The Biggest Loser.

The article states:

The sexy soul singer has landed the job ahead of a list of famous fat fighters, among them Ajay Rochester who is now set to appear as a guest on the show.

Nine is yet to announce the cast of the show but the network has been unable to keep a lid on the contestants signing up for The Biggest Loser style knock-off show.

Among celebrities eager to shed some weight on the program are singer Christine Anu, Australian Idol winner Kate DeAraugo, actor Gaby Millgate, paparazzi parody Darryn Lyons, and retired AFL great Robert DiPierdomenico.

But the biggest international signing to date for the series looks to be Britney Spears’ chubby ex,Kevin Federline, who ran into trouble last week following claims that he took a drunken naked romp at a Melbourne hotspot.

Nine bosses are expected to unveil the show at a network sales event to be held in Sydney next week but yesterday were giving nothing away.

Ceberano has been on Nine’s books since the start of the year when she signed up as a Getawaypresenter.

Famous for her own battle with the bulge, the mother-of-one, who is also Australia’s most famous Scientologist, is now said to be in the best form of her career thanks in part to a rigorous fitness campaign undertaken to prepare for her Berlei association.

The cast spent last week training in the Kimberleys for the eight-part series.

If it is only an eight part series that means it will be an hour episode a week. I would have thought they would have wanted more to fill the 7.00pm spot that is doing so well for NINE ratings wise with their reality shows.

Repulsive. Who would even give that loopy woman the time of day? The final disappointment in a long line from Ceberano. She has no credibility at all.

Deni Hines would have been a better choice; after 8 weeks with her in charge of the boot canp all the contestants will be scared thin

I’m in the process of pitching a show to channel 9 called Emotional Excess Baggage…. Deni Hines is locked in.

It’ll be a ratings winner!

Loz – what a great idea, you’re really funny.

When I heard the name I thought it was going to be another airport/customs/border security type program. Kate Ceberano I find a bit annoying but I’m not sure why?

Because she believes we are all aliens maybe?

Scientology helped Kate to lose weight…..between the ears.

Do the aliens carry clipboards?

9 smauge { 11.17.11 at 5:05 pm }

Only if they’re Thetan level 4 or above.

10 Culinary Boner { 11.17.11 at 5:08 pm }

Thanks smauge. What do the lower levels do?

11 smauge { 11.17.11 at 7:35 pm }

They host celebrity weight loss shows.

I lost all respect for Kate Cebrano when she was heavily airbrushed into a smaller size, when she was advertising bras for larger women. For someone who always carries on such a song-and-dance about embracing her womanly curves and celebrating all womens bodies, it sticks a bit to see her in this role

13 ExEssex { 11.18.11 at 1:08 am }

And don’t even get me started on AJ. Seriously, that woman is going to be on our screens again?? Doesn’t Oprah need her for those 8 weeks?

14 smauge { 11.18.11 at 7:19 am }

I remember when I was a teenager I was watching that Oz for Africa concert and I’m Talking were on. As Kate was singing my dad walked into the room. I said “Look Dad, she’s only 19” to which my Dad replied “What, 19 stone?”

As I’m sharing sort of guy, I have a rather embarrassing admission to make on this site: AJay gives me the horn….

….I think I need help

16 smauge { 11.18.11 at 10:42 am }

Ajay cops a rough deal. I worked with Ajay in radio many moons ago (back in her REALLY fat days) and she is a warm and frankly hilarious person. I don’t think her hosting gig on biggest loser showed any of her true personality at all, which is such a shame. Anyway, that ‘s my 2 cents worth.
