Jackie Gillies is Australia’s most sought-after psychic medium, author, businesswoman, philanthropist and television personality.

She's appeared on five seasons of The Real Housewives of Melbourne and roughed it in the jungle on I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!. She has sold out two national Shine It Up tours, which captures her message of self-empowerment.

Since starting her career in banking, Jackie has leaned into her adventurous and entrepreneurial spirit and intuition to lead an intentional and purposeful life.

Jackie will be racing alongside Ben Gillies, her soulmate, musician husband from Australia's rock royalty band, Silverchair.

This September, Ben will release the much-anticipated book, Love & Pain: The Epic Times And Crooked Lines Of Life Inside And Outside Sliverchair. From a Newcastle garage to worldwide recognition, this book tells the remarkable story of two teenagers who grew up in Silverchair, one of Australia's greatest rock bands.

Jackie is fiery and passionate, which she says is due to her Croatian heritage. Her way of speaking to people is often extremely sparky and energetic while Ben now cries in Pixar films since becoming a father of twins in 2021.

While Jackie will be the boss and in charge, Ben has written a strategy to prepare for the race: Get plenty of sleep between legs, don't rush, go with your gut, don’t worry if you're first or last, and make friends with other teams. These guys are prepped!

Ben and Jackie have a strong moral compass and will be torn between sabotaging other teams and calling people out for cheating.[2]
