The Beast is out of the bag! Dannii Minogue is the new host of Ultimate Beastmaster

Netflix has just scored a HUGE Aussie star.

By Stephanie Marinkovic
TV WEEK favourite Dannii Minogue is heading to Netflix! The Aussie star will host season three of Ultimate Beastmaster – the streaming service's answer to global hit Ninja Warrior.
Dannii announced her jump to the show this week and will host alongside rugby star Nick Cummins.
"This is on the edge of your seat competitive physical action - Netflix with absolutely zero "chill"," she tweeted.
The Aussie star sparkled at the 2017 TV WEEK Logie Awards.
It's the first time the obstacle course competition has been extended to Australian participants, and Dannii will front all nine episodes of the localised version of the show.
Of course, Dannii is no stranger to the reality show format. We last saw the actress and singer on UK talent show Let It Shine and she has previously done the rounds both the Australian and British X Factors as well as Australia's Got Talent.

Ultimate Beastmaster is the first reality show of its kind to debut on Netflix, and it puts contestants through their paces as they run at 'The Beast', a 180 metre-long and 15 metre-high adjustable obstacle course.
Unlike previous seasons, however, the latest incarnation pits just one contestant (instead of two) from each country against 'The Beast'.
The grand finale sees the winners of each episode go head-to-head for the title of Ultimate Beastmaster.
Dannii with her X Factor Australia co-stars Guy Sebastian, James Blunt and Chris Isaak in 2015.
Season three will see contestants, and their respective hosts, from the U.S., the U.K. and Australia. Germany, Brazil, South Korea, Mexico, France and Italy complete the show.
Netflix's Ultimate Beastmaster first premiered in early 2017 and season three will launch later this year.
Until then you can get your dose of Dannii this weekend at Sydney's Mardi Gras as part of the Netflix float.
