Ben Cardwell

Mountain View Hotel, Glen Waverley

Ben Cardwell is your grandma's favourite trivia host. And with good reason. He's baby-faced, bright-eyed and loves a well-earned Dad joke. He rules the Mountain View with a pale-yet-iron fist, and loves every team as if they were his own newborn children.

Why do you host trivia?

It's incredibly enjoyable, and there aren't enough young white men in positions of power.

What’s your favourite trivia memory?

We had a tie for first place and a gargantuan bodybuilder joked he should take on a skinny IT guy in an arm wrestle to decide it. Skinny IT dude earned a hard-fought win and I've never seen so many grown men cry.

What’s your favourite fact?

Cleopatra lived closer in time to the moon landing than the building of the pyramids.

If your life was made into a movie, what would it be called and who would play you?

Cardwell 2: Electric Boogaloo - And I'd be played by the pelican from Storm Boy

If you were performing in a singing competition, what song would you pick and why?
