When Ben is refused entry to one of Auckland’s newest, hippest and therefore most pretentious night-clubs, he’s faced with the cold realization, he’s simply not a "cool guy"… certainly not as cool as his child hood best friend, musician Tiki Taane.

With a little nerdy assistance from TV3’s David Farrier, Ben concludes the best way to become cool, so he can party it up at the club with Tiki, is to venture to the United States to pick the brains of the originator of cool – Happy Day’s Arthur ‘The Fonz’ Fozarelli’,  AKA Henry Winkler.

With The Fonze as mentor, Ben sets up office in a public toilet and even attempts to help others become ‘cool’ at his local gym using a bucket of ice water!

However, after Ben’s misguided efforts to become cool like The Fonz see him merely left out in the cold and denied access to the nightclub yet again, he turns his focus to another classic "club queue skipper" – "The Hot Girl" – namely reality TV Star and Playboy Playmate, Kendra Wilkinson.

Following Kendra’s advice Ben sets about putting his "assets" to work and starring in his own reality TV show with a footballer – in Ben’s case it’s former Rugby League star, Awen Gutenbeil.

But will all this help Ben finally gain access into the club like Tiki? Find out in episode 1 of the new season of WANNA-BEn.

Starring Ben Boyce with Henry Winkler and Kendra Wilkson. Plus Tiki Taane, David Farrier, Awen Guttenbeil, Tammy Davis and Hamish McKay.
