Bondi Rescue is an Australian non-fictional television series about the daily comings and goings of the professional lifeguards of Waverly Council who patrol Sydney's world-renowned Bondi Beach. Ben Davies, who actually used to be a part-time lifeguard, is the creator of the show as well as one of the producers. As a viewer you can follow the lifeguards fulfilling their daily duties and dealing with all kinds of challenges, including thieves on the beach, shark scares and lost kids. Seeing as Bondi Beach is an internationally known holiday destination Bondi Rescue also features regular guest appearances by local and international celebrities such as Paris Hilton, Richard Branson and Snoop Dogg. As part of the deal the Waverley Council receives a fixed yearly amount of money and a part of the profits generated by the show as an additional way to finance their rescue operations.
