In October, insider sources told news.com.au that it's been rumoured that Robert has been offered a $500,000 deal for his upcoming six-week gig - that's not too bad for a 19-year-old!
This marks his first hosting job... it also makes him the youngest top talent on local TV.
After an incredible audition earlier in the year, gaining this gig was not an easy task for Robert. He had to go up against "some of the industry's biggest names" and also had many screen tests with co-host, Julia Morris, before eventually landing the position.
