Ben has an upbeat, friendly and youthful style. Quirky and fun. Currently a third of the highly rated “Jono, Ben and Sharyn” show on the radio. He is a multi-award-winning broadcaster who along with his best friend Jono, hosted seven years of “Jono and Ben” on TV. He is married with two little girls, who helped him design the bedroom!
What made you want to get involved with the Sealy Designer Bed campaign?
Like so many New Zealanders, I've been affected by family and friends having to battle breast cancer. So hopefully me being part of this campaign can in some way help other Kiwi families going through what my family did.
What inspired your bedroom concept?
I have no design ability! I was the person who decided it was a good idea for my mum to make a suit out of a Bugs Bunny duvet for my school ball! So I got my two daughters, Sienna and Indie, to help me out with the design. They may be only nine and seven years old but already have a better eye for design than me … They went for bright fun colours and did a great job that I'll now take the credit for!
What’s your favourite element of the room?
I really love how it's a whole family room with a dog bed for our fluffy, white Samoyed – Beau. You would have thought he would have been a shambles in the photo shoot to try and make him sit in the dog bed, but it turned out he was far better behaved than me!
Why is working with BCFNZ important to you?
My aunty who I was super close with, sadly passed away from breast cancer so this campaign is an important one for me to be part of. So go on, bid on our room design! The money goes to a great cause and even if you don't like our design, you get a blimmin’ flash, comfy bed!
