Nikki Responds:

, I would feel very satisfied. It's hard to get the industries attention and respect in the middle of the night. No talk that I have heard. We always win the ratings. The first.

Kizza, and yes I do know how to pronounce your name. A lot are made up on he spot but a lot are borrowed also. I only really go to industry functions. We are always working at the prime party time of the night. It's alright.

Josh, They hired the two new hosts so that we don't get burnout.

Peter C, I moved to Melbourne cos I was a bit of a gypsy. I've lived in three cities now and several different houses. I'm pretty sure I'll stay where I am now. I didn't choose acting, it chose me.

Renee, I didn't know what to expect. The response has been fantastic.

Jared, I love Gwen Stefani. I played the clarinet and the guitar for a while.

Peter, Was it poo water or was it shower and drinking water?? I thinks it's gross. I think they should have desalimentation plants (or whatever they are called) or stop growing rice as that takes up most of the water.

Michael, I have no idea. I would say so. My real name is Nicole!!

Jack, Will I marry you?? Oh geez.

Notyourrealname, Ummm. It would be creative. Either: Dancer, Singer or a Copywriter. Actually, yes, a copywriter. I would love to write the scripts for TVC's (TV Commercials) and come up with concepts for large companies. Fave food?? Red chicken curry, coffee, lasagne, and a hot bbq chicken.

Rob, I walk my dog now. Swim at the beach. Go shopping and talk to producers about future projects.

John, I have thought about it but I'd doubt that if I won, I'd get to keep the money.

Grant, I was down to the last two girls for both Cyber Girl and Power Rangers!! Is that butt kicking enough?? I nearly got the show LOST too by the way. Plus, House of Wax. There have been a few biggins that I have been up for. Gothica etc etc. I have been around for a while.
Thanks Nikki, and thank you everyone for submitting your interesting questions.

    Question: How do you come up with the Nikki-isms…do you make them up or hear people say them and start using them? And do you only say them on Quizmania or is it a normal thing?

    Hi Nikki
    Absolutely love Quizmania and think you, Amy and Brodie do a fantastic job.
    Question: Did you ever think that hosting a late-night quiz show which was heavily criticized at the start would lead you to such popularity and recognition? I think it's quite amazing.

    Question - Can you please dye your hair black?

    Dear Nikki,
    I hope you got my mail correspondence. 1st time on the PC in ages + like I said I'm a computer spaz, so hoping this reaches you for a response. Keep enjoying those cans of water ... I mean Buzz Monkey ...

    One of my biggest peevs with showbiz is when real comedic talent tries to go all serious in search of acting credibility eg. Jamie Foxx, Robin Williams, Eddie Murphy ... etc.

    Question - Please could you promise to seek out comedic roles in film or TV whenever possible? (unless you need the work really bad!)

    Question - Would working at Channel 9 prevent you from getting on Thank God You're Here? (There's an opening left by Matt Newton ... sorry, I had to say it!)

    Question - Do you play any other instruments than the harmonica? Could you use it again to close out another show, please?? Do you recall what the tune was that you played? (long time ago I know.) I hum it to myself all the time.

  • At 4:55 PM, Anonymous Adam in Adelaide said…

    Sorry, I just read you played guitar + clarinet. Really pissed off today someone's helped me navigate this technology on the very day your Myspace site has crashed overnight!! (I guess I was blessed to see it once yesterday.) One day I'll fluke my way on there if it can rise from the ashes.

    Question - Will you wear the thumb ring again?

    Question - I notice you're the host most often on 1st (especially weekends). Is that deliberate by QM knowing how popular you are? In Adelaide I get frustrated we lose part of your Nikki-magic every time. But how do you feel that your friends + family in Qld barely get to see you at all on these shifts? I figured you're just relieved to knock off early + get your beauty sleep.(Not that you need it.) If I killed every other male on Earth or got a face graft of Dalton James, would you ... just kidding. Loving your work more + more + wish only the best personally + careerwise.

    Hi Nikki,

    Question: If you wanted to protest about something would you raise the issue during your Logie Speech?
    ( Don't do it! )

    Question: If asked, would you go in the Celebrity car race before the Grand Prix?

    Question: How did you fall in love with Italy?

    Question: What do your parents think of your QM job?

    Thanks Nikki.
