Charlie Pome'e | Know Your Roots 2022
We know he can sing and make people laugh on social media but does he know his roots?
From the popular band Three Houses Down, Charlie Pome'e is a musician and somewhat of an online comedic influencer pulling is thousands of views in to his daily antics. A proud son of the Kingdom of Tonga the artist joins us this season hoping to make the 676 proud! Especially his roots of Vaini and Ofa Tongatapu.
He's not only a competitor this season but also wears the hat as uncle. Fellow competitor General Fiyah is Charlie's brothers son. When asked about how the two got to be on the same show he jokingly said "Well I heard this show needed other people and he was at home so I told him to get in the car".
Just because he's an uncle on this show he is not letting that take away from his competitive nature. When talking about his star sign Charlie mentioned, "My star sign is Leo. We're quite ferocious. We're the king of the jungle, so tomorrow its going to be rawrrr".
He's a Leo ready to compete but also planning to do so in an unassuming way. When asked about his secret strength he answered, "Being that funny guy. Just as they're taking that laugh Im beating them. So they might fall in to that trap of laughing at the joke while I'm breaking them down"
Competiton aside the musician has said hes taken on the Know Your Roots challenge so he can be surrounded by Pacific culture. "Im doing this one for the forefathers. Going back to our cultural roots to learn more and get in to some of those traditional games we play back in the islands" Charlie told us.
Mr. Pome'e is ready for the challenge and is taking all precautionary means necessary to prepare. His final words to us before the competition were, "Tonight I'll be doing my homework. Not on the games but on the contestants"
