Cannonball Hosts Revealed

Cannonball Hosts Revealed

Seven have announced the hosts for its new entertainment series Cannonball

In their first presenting roles, Ben Mingay (Home & Away, Wonderland, Packed to the Rafters) and Tim Ross (Wonderland) will co-host the series. Channel Seven’s Rachael Finch will report from the sidelines capturing all the action from the arena as it unfolds.

 Ben Mingay said “The best part about this show is that our contestants need no special skills, it all comes down to gravity in the end“. 

Tim Ross added: “Ben and I are excited to work together again. We can’t wait to put our colourful contestants through their paces… and everyone loves a belly flop”.

Cannonball takes place in a giant water arena containing a slide over four stories high, a swing nine metres above water and an inflatable ‘blob’ cushion with the potential to send contestants up to 12 metres in the air.

Each episode, 12 teams of two will compete in a series of rounds to slide huge distances, fly across the water and launch into the air at giant speed. Each episode will also feature a pair of Star Jumpers – well-known personalities who will attempt to take on the challenges.

Filming on the series wraps up today and CannonBall will launch later this year on Seven.
