As if saving lives isn’t enough, today’s guest stars in one of Australia’s longest-running and widely-broadcast reality TV shows.

Born and bred by the beach in Christchurch, this Kiwi quickly made himself at home in the waves at Bondi after fleeing a frosty New Zealand winter in 2013.

But while being a lifeguard bestows you god-like status Down Under, our next guest warns he’s had to bear witness to scenes he won’t soon forget.

He’s one of the stars of Network Ten’s Logie Award-winning series, Bondi Rescue, give it up for celebrity lifeguard, Harrison Reid.
