Our very own Athena Angelou is bringing the glam to the Doggy Dome in TVNZ 2’s Dog Almighty!
Athena became a fast fan favourite during her time on Celebrity Treasure Island with her heart, sass and bubbly attitude. She’s bringing that same infectious energy to the hosting line up alongside Jono and Ben, as Dog Almighty’s sideline host where she’ll be the first port of call for our contestants after they complete the course.
On Athena joining the guys Ben Boyce said: “Athena kept calling us ‘Discount Hamish and Andy’ through filming, which we saw as a compliment as our careers have literally gone to the dogs! It's probably only a matter of time to have us being eliminated with the contestants on the show and have Athena take over!"
Dog Almighty will search for New Zealand’s most talented, gifted and downright exceptional pooch. Our pups and their owners will be tested on their agility, obedience and X-factor in the hopes of taking home a massive $100,000 prize, and the coveted golden dog bowl.
When it comes to what viewers can expect from Dog Almighty, Angelou says: “The unexpected! I’m not one to invest in animal shows, but this had me on the edge of my seat. It’s truly amazing what our furry pals can do when we invest a lot of time and patience into them.”
Alongside our hosting panel of Jono and Ben, and Athena is Doggy Dan a world-renowned dog trainer and behaviourist that will be sharing his expert opinion and guidance as the show’s judge.
This series is truly like no other, so get ready to meet your new favourite furry friends, coming soon to TVNZ 2!
