Wesley Dening joined Network Ten as a reporter for the award winning children's program, Totally Wild following his successful stay in the Big Brother series of 2004.

With a love of the outdoors and all things adventurous, Wesley embraced his role with an energy that would tire most people just thinking about it.

An avid swimmer, wakeboarder, touch footballer and Brisbane Lions supporter, Wes will go where most presenters dare not go. This paid off in 2006 with his first year of reporting earning him a Network Logie Nomination for the 'Graham Kennedy Award' for Best New Talent on TV.

Outside of television, Wes was an ambassador for Tourism Queensland. He has been a keynote speaker and the emcee for the National Young Leaders Foundation where he has already addressed over 50,000 Australian students on leadership issues. He has also emceed events including the Brisbane International Film Festival and World Teachers Day.

Although this is was his first presenting role on television, Wesley quickly established himself as a firm favourite with Totally Wild's viewers. He now lives in Los Angeles, California where he produces content for television including The Disney Channel, truTV and Fox.
