Osher Günsberg – Anything Else is Gravy

His name and his hairstyles may have changed through the years, but Osher Günsberg’s presence on our television screens has hardly wavered for nearly two decades, thanks largely to blockbuster television shows Australian Idol and The Bachelor (and its many spin-offs).
