Tania Zaetta


Tania Zaetta, a former model, was born in Mildura and grew up with her two younger brothers on a large property on the Murray River. Her country lifestyle included outdoor activities which she still enjoys - horseriding, camping, riding motorbikes and waterskiing.

Tania's background also involves marketing, she has appeared in several television commercials and is a qualified beauty therapist. Her mother had graduated with a doctorate in Human Science which inspired Tania to further her own studies - she completed a Diploma course in freelance writing.

Tania left her family property on the Murray River at 14 to work as a model in Melbourne. Seven years later, she decided to give TV a try and moved to Sydney. Over the years, she played a lead role in the ninth season of Baywatch and was a regular in the tv series Pizza for 3 seasons. She hosted her own travel show; The Blue Planet for Network Ten, her own segment on Seven’s footy show Live and Kicking and was also a regular on Foxtel's A Question of Sport. While based in the UK, Tania was a regular guest on Britain’s highest rating daytime show Trisha with Trisha Goddard. In 2004 Granada Television UK completed Tania Zaetta Exposed, a biographical documentary.

At the 39th Annual TV Week Logie Awards held in 1997, Tania Zaetta was nominated for the Logie for "Most Popular New Talent" for her work on Who Dares Wins.

Tania was the first star to be voted off Dancing with the Stars

She has been often said to give J’Lo a run for her money about who has the ‘best figure’ in the business.

FHM voted her one the ‘Best 5 Butts in the World’, alongside Elle Macpherson, Cameron Diaz, Kylie Minogue and Liz Hurley.

Tania was the first female celebrity to have a sports training shoe named after her by Asics (Australasia). “Gel Zaetta” was launched in October 2002.

Tania's other interests include painting with both oils and watercolours, experimenting in the kitchen and a very broad musical taste - "everything from motown to soul and funk and easy listening."

Tania says of her dares, "It never occurred to me that I would attempt as many dares as I have. I'm conquering my own personal fears every time we film. I think it helps the contestants feel at ease when they see I'm scared too. I'm not a superwoman.

A memorable dare that Tania completed on Who Dares Wins was with the bike plank where she had to ride a push bike across a plank between two buildings 12 storeys high.
