Brooke Howard-Smith


Entrepreneur Brooke Howard-Smith first won fame for his skating skills. In the 1990s he was part of the team behind both a series of hit American skating films, and skating accessories company Senate. After returning home in the late 90s, he began an extended run as co-host of consumer affairs show Target, and owned an Auckland nightclub. Howard-Smith has also presented Cadbury Dream Factory and a range of sports coverage, including extreme sports show XSTV. Now heading management company We Are Tenzing, he has organised many charity events — from Cure Kids to 2011 telethon Rise Up Christchurch.  

...doing this show is literally my dream. I’ve always wanted to do something like an extreme home makeover show, giving good things back to good people, and with this show, that’s exactly what we’re doing. Without exception, every time we finished filming a story, I was like, ‘This is the coolest day of my life’.
