When Ben learns about a new TV talent show, he fails to convince his flat-mate, and former New Zealand Idol winner, Ben Lummis, that it’s a good idea to enter. But under the guidance of Poison front man and Rock of Love lady killer, Bret Michaels, Ben isn’t deterred from attempting to become a music sensation.

Employing the services of Elemeno P’s Dave Gibson, Ben tries to become a good front-man by jumping to the front of queues around town. Ben attempts to write a heartfelt and painful rock ballad with a little assistance from boxer Shane Cameron and then tries sweet talking the ladies at speed dating after undergoing several face numbing injections at the dentist.

With a distinct lack of ability, instruments and interest from Ben Lummis, Ben Boyce decides a change of tack is required - and decides to model himself after pop music juggernaut, The Black Eyed Peas.

With guidance from The BEP’s Taboo, Ben recruits a female for his group in actor Anna Hutchison and then sets about honing his freestyle rapping skills in a no holds barred rap-battle before and embarking of a nationwide tour... by trying to join in with several busloads of unsuspecting tourists.

But will any of these experiences help Ben in his final audition for the new TV talent show? Find out in episode 2 of the new season of WANNA-BEn.

Starring Ben Boyce with Bret Michaels and Taboo from The Black Eyed Peas. Plus Ben Lummis, Anna Hutchison, Dave Gibson, Shane Cameron, Jon Bridges and Ben Hurley.
