He is best known as the newest shopkeeper of the I'm A Celebrity Outback Shack, but now Kiosk Kev's true identity has finally been revealed.
Kev, whose real name is Mark Herlaar, is actually an Australian lime farmer and former reality star.
Mark appeared on the Australian version of Survivor last year, and even took part in game show Family Feud.
The star replaced Kiosk Keith, whose real name is Raymond Grant, after he was fired from the show for allegedly turning up to work drunk and behaving inappropriately towards a female colleague.
Hairy-faced wonder Mark is also keen on posting topless selfies to his Instagram page.
An insider previously toldThe Sunthat show bosses were chuffed with Mark joining the show.
"Everyone on set is really pleased with the new Kiosk Kev character," the insider revealed.
"Viewers will love him but the celebrities will be scared stiff! Like Kiosk Keith, Kev is a man of few words and doesn't speak.
"Kev won't take any nonsense from the celebrities, and he looks very intimating!"
Mark is said to have bagged the role after ITV bosses spotted his acting profile online.
The dad-of-two reportedly resides in the town of Toowoomba in Queensland, which is close to where the reality series is filmed.
Most fans of I'm A Celeb appear to be enjoying Kiosk Kev's arrival in camp.
One wrote: "Noel has only been in a day and he's already beetroot. Hope Kiosk Kev has some factor 50 for him."
Another posted: "Unpopular #imaceleb opinion: I miss Kiosk Keith, but I also like Kiosk Kev and his bushy Viking-style beard."
One tweeted: "Kiosk Kev, Mark from Australian Survivor. Super nice guy got eliminated playing a hidden immunity idol on someone else. #ImACeleb."
While another wrote: "Yay the camp finally got Kiosk Kev's question right! Feel like a proud mother."
However, some viewers aren't keen on the bushy-bearded chap's appearance on the show.
Rather brutally, one tweeted: "I'd rather drown than see Kev At the outback shack."
And another posted: "Can't believe kiosk Keith has been replaced with kiosk Kev !"
