Update - Yes! There is a pull-out poster of Nikki in this month's Ralph Mag (with Jessica Simpson on the cover)

Thanks for all your questions so far. Nikki Responds:

Hi Benny, Yes, Kato will be visiting when we do a dog theme show. The sooner the better I say!!

Marty, I don't maintain my sanity at all!! I think I come across as mad on the show. It's my alter ego at play!!

Anon, Not sure as yet what I will be doing. I have a few irons in the fire. I would love to host a variety show or work on a comedy.

Grant, I would love to star in a comedy!!

Peter, The doors that are opening are doors of recognition. Your support has been noticed by the networks and producers. You make me appear bankable! Jessica is a mini series that was on Channel 10 a few years back. It won best miniseries at the Logies and at overseas film festivals. I'm not flying China air again after we ran out of fuel and had to land on an island at a military base. Scary stuff.

D, I myself did not go to Humpybong. I went to Grace. My mum was a year one or 3 teacher there. Thanks!!

Sarah, No, I don't really get into trouble with the producers. Not bad trouble anyway. They usually just say "oh s**t Nik, you just did it again!". That's about it.

Update II: Nikki answers more questions.

Evangelion, I am slightly allergic to Kato, but I'm sure I will get over it. Yeah, I've basicaly got the hang of the hour. I prefer screen at the moment but I am sure I will want to occasionally go back to the stage. I filmed my US work at Fox Studios in Sydney. As for Myspace, I simply couldn't keep up and I felt like I was living on the computer. Not healthy.

Rexi, My middle name is MAY. My favourite ice cream flavour is mint choc chip. I enjoy scootering on hot days, the beach, eggs bennedict and playing with my puppy.

Anon, A girl never reveals secrets about her hair.

Drew, It's a mole!! Moley moley moley!!! No significance whatsoever with the necklace.

Jared, Secret squirrel.

Robbity, Sorry robbity, I'm not into the whole blind marriage thing.

Thomas, Yes, I get recognised. It's fine. It doesn't inhibit my lifestyle.

Jeffrey, I got the role through many many long intensive auditions. Why are people my fans?? I don't know. Probably because I am unconventional, unsafe and I break the rules. When the phones are down?? I have no idea why that happens or what happens behind the scenes. All I know is all of a sudden I lose contact with the producer and so I have to just babble away until he says we are back.

Storme, It's Quizmania land!! It's amazing. There are fluffy animals floating around drinking lattes!! Not really. I don't want to spoil the illusion.

Peter, It sounds like hell!!

Jack, My favourite movie changes. At present it is Anchorman. I am not sure if I got your myspace message. Kato is a german sheperd!!

Erich, Yes. I have an older sister with two babies who lives in canada. That's why I am always skiing. I'm afraid she is very married and ridiculously happy.

    Question - Any chance Kato will be visiting the set one night? Possibly after being taught some groovy tricks? I know they say animals and TV don't mix, but a dog running around the QuizMania set can only turn out well =D

    Question: How is it that you maintain your sanity by talking to yourself every other night for an astounding period of time. I know a skill like that is really amazing. It's very entertaining.

    I stay up until 3am on most nights incase you end up being the host for a half of the night.

    Hi Nikki!,
    My question is what are your plans for 2007, i.e. do you think you will be doing any extra acting, modelling, movies etc?

    Btw keep up the good work on QM, you always crack me up!

    Thanx & Bye :)

  • At 1:15 PM, Anonymous Grant said…

    You've said in interviews you want to do more acting in movies, so I was wondering what kind of film genre would you most like to star in? Just curious :P

  • At 3:14 PM, Anonymous Peter C. said…

    Question1: You have said that "Doors" have been opened for you with Fans help. What doors are they? Can you tell us any or give examples?

    Question2: "Jessica". What was this movie about? I haven't seen it! Never heard of it. Sorry.

    Question3: How on Earth did you come to be travelling by China Airlines?? God!! Risky!!!

  • At 4:40 PM, Anonymous D said…

    Question - Nikki, did you ever go to Humpybong? Was your Mum a teacher there, or admin staff? I went there as a kid, and would have been a year or two above you.

    I don't often get to see QM, but congrats on your work and your cult following! Redcliffe girl dun good!

  • At 4:59 PM, Anonymous Sarah said…

    Question - Do you get into trouble after 'accidently' giving away answers and hints?. Or do the producers let you get away with it.

    Because after that night where you gave about 2 answers away as hints I just wanted to know lol

  • At 9:51 PM, Blogger Evangelion said…

    Hi Nikki,

    Question: How are you ? Are you well ? Are you adapting to your unusual working hours ?

    Question: How is Kato? Is she settling down at night ? Are you getting enough sleep ? Are you sorting out the biting thing ?

    Question: Have you had any acting or other job offers ? ones that you can talk about anyway haha.

    Question: Do you have a preference for appearing on the stage or the screen ?

    Question: When were you working in America ? Did you enjoy it ? Would you go back there ?

    Question: Any comments you would like to make on your 'myspace experience' ?

    Question - I was wondering, is there any special man in your life at the moment, or are you still single?

  • At 4:03 AM, Anonymous Robbity said…

    Will you marry me...and if not, will you marry my, er...friend, yeah my friend :)

  • At 8:18 AM, Anonymous Thomas said…

    Question: Since QM, do you often get recognised in public? Do you like the attention, or do you send your best friend to do your groceries for you now?

    I know that's more than 1 question, but I think they all tie in together well :) .

    Hi Nikki,

    Do you have any brothers or sisters? Can you tell your public anything about them? I'm sure you've mentioned you've a sister who recently had a baby.

    Also, would you have an identical twin sister, with a GSOH, who's single and about 20 years older than your good self?

    If yes (dreaming), any chance of an introduction?
    I'm a really nice guy!
