We are excited to feature an interview with a fan from New Zealand, in order to appeal to a larger audience. Team member Courtney discusses Tiff’s popularity across the ditch and much more. We love NZ fans!
Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?
I am twenty years old and living in Hamilton, New Zealand. I am working part time as a retail assistant for a horse feed company four days a week and enjoying fulfilling my passion for horses in my spare time, riding with friends and enjoying our beautiful country. I’m currently located in the city but my dream is to move to the country and have my own piece of paradise.
How did you become a fan of Tiff?
I first became a fan through The Biggest Loser Australia. Her kindness and compassion towards the contestants captivated me, it was so great to see their journey together. It was as if they were family and had known each other for years. There’s something about Tiff that inspires people to get up and live their dream, because it really can be achieved when you put your mind to it.
Is Tiff popular in New Zealand?
There’s definitely a fan base, but unfortunately it’s not as wide as Australia's. Understandably it’s due to the fact she’s not a New Zealander and countries tend to enjoy promoting whoever is born and raised there. Luckily we are close enough to Australia that we still get to hear all the news and it’s not far to pop over for a book signing should the need arise!
Are Tiffiny’s books available in New Zealand?
They sure are! They are all available at bookstores or online websites.
Do you see her on TV there?
Yes, The Biggest Loser Australia screens here. We are about a series behind you guys, but it’s fantastic we get to watch them.
Does The Biggest Loser Australia have a following in New Zealand?
Definitely! We love it! As above, we are a series behind - but it’s very popular. There are enough people watching it for them to keep renewing the series, so lucky for us we get to keep enjoying the series.
Do you think fans want her to make public appearances in New Zealand?
Tiffiny’s fan base here would love that! I’m also sure it would be a fantastic opportunity for her to generate publicity and raise awareness of her achievements outside of The Biggest Loser Australia – here’s hoping she graces us with her presence soon! That would be very exciting!
NZ fans can catch Tiff on The Biggest Loser Australia via TV3. TV3 also airs other seasons of the show.
