Gus Worland is an Australian television and radio personality and founder of men’s mental health foundation, Gotcha4Life. He is well known for his series of reality television programs for Foxtel (An Aussie Goes Barmy, An Aussie Goes Bolly and An Aussie Goes Calypso) and A&E (Marathon Man). He has also covered Commonwealth and Olympic Games for Foxtel.
Gus is a sporting tragic and continues to use his passion to entertain audiences. In 2009, he took up the role of co-host of Triple M’s breakfast show in Sydney. Within two years The Grill Team doubled their ratings for this time slot, and Gus was awarded ‘Best On Air Newcomer’ at the 2010 Australian Commercial Radio Awards.
The Grill Team continues to thrive in Sydney at breakfast. Hosting the 2016 ABC series Man Up was pivotel for Gus. The series was an exploration of modern masculinity (which Gus views is toxic) and men’s mental health issues – challenging masculine stereotypes and getting men better connected and breaking the silence around suicide.
Following the enormous impact of Man Up, Gus founded Gotcha4Life with the mission to target Men’s Mental Health – with the goal of saving lives and making a significant impact in raising the mental state of boys, men and their families. He has been married for over 20 years to Vicky and has three teenage kids. Women want him to meet their mothers and blokes want to be him: Gus just wants to give them all a hug.
