He's only gone and done it, Chris Parker is the winner of Celebrity Treasure Island for 2021!

Making it through to the final three along with Edna Swart and Lance Savali, Chris was the first to find the cash after an exhausting final treasure hunt for the $100k.

Playing for his choosen charity of Rainbow Youth, Chris said "I just know what this is going to do for that charity." 

"It's going to go miles, and we're just going to help so many kids. It's just an organisation that does amazing work in this country and is saving lives" Chris continued while fighting back the tears.

Speaking with Rainbow Youth, the charity told us they couldn't be more excited and thankful for Chris.

We're absolutely over the moon to hear the news about Chris winning Celebrity Treasure Island! Chris has been a longstanding supporter of Rainbow Youth, and watching him take on this challenge has made us very proud and of course, laugh a bunch.

The last 12 months have been a wild ride for us with COVID-19 and its subsequent challenges -  but our staff, volunteers, and the young people we support have been incredible through it all. We hope that this news can bring a little bit of joy to everyone in the Rainbow Youth whānau who's had to be resilient throughout this year. 

We're extremely grateful to Chris & the team at Celebrity Treasure Island for not only raising funds for us, but for helping us raise awareness around who we are and what we do. This has definitely got us one step closer to our goal of making sure that Aotearoa's rainbow rangatahi are not just surviving, but thriving.

Now with Celebrity Treasure Island all wrapped up, you can get your fix of Chris Parker 6-10am on The Edge Breakfast as he joins the show for the rest of 2021!
