This year's host will be none other than former Big Brother host, Gretel Killeen! Gretel is known as a firm supporter of the LGBTQI community and will undoubtedly do a great job of engaging the audience with her radiant and humorous personality.
My Kitchen Rules star Jordan Bruno will also be visiting from Perth as a special guest and table host. Jordan made national headlines after coming out and proud whilst on My Kitchen Rules, and didn't want to miss the chance to support a great organisation such as Midsumma Festival.
