WHO - - The List -

The Bo­gan Hunters host, 45, is back with new se­ries Deadly Down Un­der (starts Thurs., Oct. 11 at 8:30pm; 7Mate).

What is your new show about?

It’s a mas­sive road trip ad­ven­ture and we find the dead­li­est stuff – from an­i­mals to en­vi­ron­ments, and crazy mys­ter­ies like UFOS and ghosts. We went to two of the most haunted places in Aus­tralia.

What was the dead­li­est crea­ture you en­coun­tered dur­ing film­ing?

It’s neck and neck – I pulled a 3m croc­o­dile out of the wa­ter, but I also had an en­counter with an east­ern brown snake. It went be­tween my legs – I don’t know if you can get closer than that.

Any mishaps dur­ing film­ing?

We had a chop­per break down in the mid­dle of the Simp­son Desert.

Your work can be di­vi­sive. What do you have to say to crit­ics?

If you don’t like it, don’t watch it. But I have man­aged to stay on tele­vi­sion for nearly 20 years so I am do­ing some­thing right.

“There were so many times when it could have gone sour,” Fenech says.
