The search for MTV’s newest VJ is finally over and out of hundreds of Kiwis out there who tried to #ConvinceKate, only one took home the golden mic.

Kristian ‘Krit’ Schmidt was put through two whole days of gruelling challenges which included couch sessions with Kate, an MTV News & MTV Buzz read, a radio challenge at ZM Radio and most importantly a MTV Trivia and mystery shot roulette.

Krit also interviewed NZ’s hugely successful DJ and producer P Money and took part in a press interview for Woman’s Day magazine.

If that wasn’t enough, he was also put through a gruelling workout with SKY NEXT boxing up-and-comer David Nyika onsite Sky Arena boxing alley.

Adding to his krit-ability, our new VJ even has a superstar family member – and received a shout out on Twitter from his cuz The Rock!

Check out his Instagram entry below.

Welcome to the family, Krit!
