Todd Woodbridge expresses his excitement about hosting Tipping Point Australia, a new game show offering contestants the opportunity to win substantial cash prizes.
Reflecting on his transition from a successful tennis career to a quiz show host, Todd humorously addresses the unexpected shift. The game involves participants answering general knowledge questions to earn counters, which they then use on a large arcade-style coin pusher machine.
“Then comes the really good part… that’s what we’ve built on more than the British version,” he teased.
In an accompanying video, Todd outlines the show’s rounds and reveals an anticipated twist unique to the Australian version. As a decorated doubles tennis player with numerous grand slam victories, Todd shares that his new role provides him with equal enthusiasm.
“It’s an accumulation of everything I’ve done in the last 15 years in my broadcast career. It’s challenging, but at the end of every episode I walk away going – that was fun.”
The new series of Tipping Point Australia is set to air on Channel 9 and 9Now on weekdays at 5 pm, starting January 29, coinciding with the premiere of Married At First Sight.
