Kristian 'Krit' Schmidt

Profile

Presenter, International Host, Social Media

With arguably the best head of hair in the TV business, New Zealand born Kristian ‘Krit’ Schmidt broke into the scene as a VJ for MTV Australia and New Zealand after coming out on top in a nationwide search! Earning a Master’s degree in Education and a conjoint degree in Law and Arts, it’s not just street smarts that the quick-witted 29-year-old brings to his new life as an entertainer. Krit has visited over 25 different countries, travelling the world as not just an explorer but also as a dancer through Hip Hop crews and Pacific performance groups. To top it off, show business is in Krit’s blood with Hollywood A-lister Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson being his cousin who featured as Krit’s maiden interview! Since then he has managed to captivate audiences, balancing both fun and more pressing issues in interviews with the likes of Jack Black, Quentin Tarantino, Amy Schumer, Chris Rock and Ice Cube. Krit has hosted dozens of red carpets, across every platform - from Snapchatting at the MTV Video Music Awards in New York to jumping on Facebook Live at the Dally M’s in Sydney. Krit also writes, produces, films and edits pieces for the Pacific newshub, The Coconet! When Krit isn’t mixing with celebrities, he continues to follow his passion for education, working with students from less affluent communities through mentoring and motivational speaking. Krit’s ability to connect with people of all walks of life is set to hold him in good stead as an entertainer.
