The Solas

The largest of the Gogglebox NZ households, The Sola family live together in a house full of laughter - alongside their two very spoilt cats, Mercy and Graceson.

Chris (58) and Seira (56) are parents to Lina (26) and Serenity (20). Also included in the group is Simeti (26), Lina’s high school sweetheart and husband of three years.

Chris and Seira are both Pastors at The Dream Centre, a church based in Papatoetoe, where Chris’ sermons are regularly televised. Chris’ heritage is Samoan (Ti’avea, Aleipata) and Maori (Ngati Whakaue, Te Arawa and Ngati Kuia, Ngai Tahu) and Seira’s heritage is Samoan (Luatuanuu and Samusu). Faith and culture are two important pillars in this family.

Lina is currently at Bible College, while Serenity studies business. Simeti is a former podiatrist, currently a youth worker.

Social media savvy sisters Lina and Serenity love to post and vlog on their public Facebook page Keeping up with the Solas which has garnered over 93K followers!
