The Amazing Race 2023: Meet Peter Rowsthorn and His Daughter Frankie

Peter Rowsthorn is best known for his time on Kath & Kim, and has continued his work in entertainment with regular guest appearances on multiple shows across the major networks. Now, the celebrated comedian of over 30 years is bringing his punchlines — and his daughter, Frankie — to The Amazing Race Australia: Celebrity Edition. 

Frankie Rowsthorn seems to have inherited her father’s knack for comedy — in fact, she performed her first stand-up set at the age of 16! So, we can expect plenty of hilarious banter from the duo as they make their way through the streets of Borneo, India, Malaysia and Cambodia.
