Meet our Staff
Hi...I am the Managing Director of FAME Trivia and the writer of all our quizzes. I started out as a trivia host back in March of 1993 at the Bridgeview Hotel in Willoughby....and after almost a quarter of a Century....I'm still there every Wednesday night. During this time I am very happy to announce that people meeting at my Trivia Nights have resulted in 11 marriages. (Call me Cupid if you will).
My brother Jonathan and I took over FAME Trivia in March 1998 and have grown the business from 12 shows a week in Sydney to around 120 shows a week around Australia and a dozen weekly shows in Seattle, Washington .....which of course we are very proud of.
So come on down to the Bridgeview and join me for a fun night of trivia where any team can win the top prize. Cheers
Meet our Hosts
Alice joined the Fame Trivia team at the beginning of 2012. Alice was part of the first graduating company to complete the Bachelor of Performance program at the Australian Academy of Dramatic Art (AADA) finishing in 2010. During 2011 Alice took a "gap- year and travelled extensively throughout America, Europe and Asia... so, she is well-travelled... but, surprisingly, still rubbish at geography! As a budding actor, Alice is always looking for jobs that utilise her skills (and love) of performance and trivia ticks all the boxes. Alice prides herself on being a bit of a "Fame Trivia Filler-Innera" - you can find her covering for other hosts across Sydney.
"She won over everybody very quickly and did a very competent and entertaining show. We can't recommend her more highly." - Fame Trivia regular punter, Denis Lynch (Harbord Hilton)
Laying distinction to being (probably) the world's only archaeologist/trivia host, Craig also works at the museums at the University of Sydney, where he is gained a PhD in Classical Archaeology in 2003. He is the co-director of the University of Sydney's archaeological excavations of an ancient theatre in Paphos in Cyprus but has also dug on sites in Australia, Greece and Turkey, and has lectured and published on various ancient history subjects. He loves working as a trivia host so much he has been known to organise quiz nights in dighouses across the Mediterranean, especially when he is missing his regular crowds.
You can catch him on Wednesdays at the Union Hotel in Newtown and Thursdays at the Zetland Hotel in Zetland. But please don't make Indiana Jones jokes. Please!
Luckily FAME writes the questions at the quiz night, otherwise he would be inflicting you with trivial questions about his interests which include ancient Greek pottery, ska music, episodes of Doctor Who, and the films of Stanley Kubrick. Go on, ask him about 2500 year wine production methods....he dares you! Craig hopes to see you at a pub soon!

SiÃ¢n Rinaldi has been hosting trivia since 2010 at the Weston Club. She runs her trivia like she runs her life: minimal rules and mostly on time but only due to significant effort not to be distracted by shiny things. The rules at Weston Club trivia are simple no phones and no picking on SiÃ¢n about pronunciation, in return she won't pick on you about spelling or handwriting capabilities... these tend to be broken each week, but each week Sian learns, slowly but surely, how to pronounce names and places correctly... apart from Martina Navratilova's name.. but seriously who can pronounce that?!
Sadly, we would have hoped SiÃ¢n's knowledge of geography would have significantly improved since commencing her hosting career, however she has since found not only can you buy a plane ticket to most places in the world, negating the need to actually know where these places are. There are also apps for plane ticket purchasing... not to mention half price coupons available.
SiÃ¢n enjoys pina coladas, getting caught in the rain and the collected works of spermologists worldwide.

Since joining Fame Trivia in mid-1999 I have: graduated from uni, tied the knot, welcomed three children into the world, had six regular day jobs, celebrated another four Hawthorn premierships, lost a lot of hair, and put on a bit of weight! Over all these years, the constant in my life has been my continued good fortune to be able to work as a Fame Trivia host at venues all over Melbourne. Working for Fame Trivia is definitely a passion rather than a job, and I hope that my enthusiasm comes across during all of my shows. The best part is that I am able to meet so many wonderful people each week who share my love of quizzes!
My regular players would know that if there is one thing I cannot abide at my shows
....is people enjoying themselves.
Why I've had new teams come in and on hearing a music clue....they'll start singing, dancing or at worst both at the same time!
Obviously I tell them to sit down and keep quiet in no uncertain terms!
Trivia is a deadly serious business....not everyone gets that.

Hey I'm Dallas "D-Chill- Hill and I've been quizzing with Fame Trivia for over ten years. I would say I'm one of Perth's and Fame Trivia's most popular Quiz Masters. Bringing my own comedic style of humour, terrible dad jokes and my famous "Who Had and Right on Right on- to my weekly quizzes.
I host each week at the Hyde Park Hotel on Tuesday's and now Prince Lane on Thursday's and I would venture to say, you will definitely have a great night out.
Hey if you're considering adding a Quiz Night to your fundraiser or corporate function give Tim Shorter a call (0414 246 327) and book me to host your upcoming event. My goal for your event is to make it fun, help you raise a bit of money and add to the success on the night.
So get a group of friends together and make one of my quizzes part of your weekly nights.
See you soon.
Right on Right on

Jeff has been hosting Fame Trivia quiz nights in and around Brisbane since 2003, and now considers himself a dedicated spermologist (wiki that if you don't know what it means).
He gave it a shot after a failed attempt at the big prizes on "Sale of the Century" (stoopid fast money round) and now lists his ambitions as wanting to be presented with an oversize novelty cheque and being one of the cranky voice-overs reading letters on "Media Watch".
|Jeff Aaron |
Jeff Aaron has been a staple on Seattle radio since 1992. "The Fish" as he is affectionately known to his loyal listeners has seen it all when it comes to Seattle sports history. He worked for many years as an award winning Seattle Seahawks Pre-Post game host, produced the legendary Wayne Cody KIRO sportsline show and worked side by side with Pete Gross in his final years as "the Voice" of Hawks Football.
"The Fish" eventually formed a morning show partnership with KJR's "Mitch in the Morning" where the duo racked up ratings and listeners for almost 8 years! Their break-up and Fish's dismissal is still debated to this day. Aaron also manned the Washington State Cougar football sidelines for 10 season and remains a loyal supporter of the "Cougs" His Son, Shane, is a 2010 Graduate with a Economics/Business Administration at WSU.
The work Jeff Aaron is most proud of is his 7 years as Host of "3 to 6 with the Fish, Jeff Aaron radio show". "Fish" combined superstar celebrity sports, music and entertainer interviews mixed with local sports talk and community issues. "The Fish" can be found almost everywhere - on the Ice at Silvertips Hockey games, the Turf of the Washington Stealth Lacrosse team to hosting radio listener parties at the top sports pubs and casinos in the Pacific North West. 'The Fish" is also considered by some to be "Mr Trivia" - he hosts many trivia nights throughout the Puget Sound.
The Fish is an avid drummer and plays with many local bands, including his band perfectly named, "The Below Average White Band", he is very quick to tell anyone willing to listen about his 2007 trip to London to see Led Zeppelin! His music collection features a wide variety of rock-n-roll from Zep, Rush, DIO, Kings X, Yes, to Kings of Leon, Steely Dan and Warren Zevon. Jeff Aaron is a Heisman Trophy Voter, John Wooden Award voter and claims to be a 12 handicap golfer unless your playing for money - then he is an 18. Born in St. Marys PA he somehow became a lifelong Oakland Raiders fan, but supports the Pittsburgh Pirates, Penguins and Penn State Nittany Lions. "The Fish" currently lives in Lake Stevens with his Girlfriend Kimmy until they can win the lottery and move to Las Vegas.
