Hans "Hansi" Hinterseer (born February 2, 1954 in Kitzbühel) is an Austrian singer, actor, entertainer and former alpine skier.
In the 1970s, Hans Hinterseer became famous as a member of the Austrian Ski Team. He won six alpine skiing World Cup races in Slalom skiing and Giant Slalom skiing. In 1973 he won the alpine skiing World Cup in Giant Slalom skiing. In 1974 he won the silver medal at the world championship in St. Moritz, and also participated at the 1976 Winter Olympics in Innsbruck.
Since the early 1980s, he has been a technical sports commentator for the National Austrian Broadcasting Corporation, usually commenting on Slalom and Giant Slalom live broadcasts.
In 1994, he started a career as a singer, and is currently prominent as a performer in a romantic and heimat genre. He has also acted in several films, also following a Heimatfilm theme. He is also known for wearing white fur boots and long blonde dyed hair, thus making him target of so called "blonde jokes".
Hans Hinterseer resides in the town of Kitzbühel, Austria. He is the son of Ernst Hinterseer, who won a gold medal in slalom skiing at the 1960 Winter Olympics.
Rainhard Jürgen Fendrich (born 27 February 1955 in Vienna) is an Austrian singer, composer, entertainer, and actor. He is one of the most successful Austropop musicians. His lyrics are written in Viennese German, and he is very popular in Austria, but less in other German-speaking countries, and by far less known in non-German speaking ones. His song from 1990, "I am from Austria" (its lyrics are, except for this one line, in Viennese German) is still popular in Austria.
Rainhard, called "Raini" by his friends, attended a Catholic boarding school. By his own admission he was a lazy pupil, and shy. He got his first guitar on his 15th birthday, and taught himself how to play it and started writing songs. He later began to study law, but soon gave up and took several jobs in order to finance his education as a professional actor and singer.
He has acted in the musicals Die Gräfin vom Naschmarkt (1980), Jesus Christ Superstar (Judas, 1982), Chicago (Billy Flynn, 1998), and he played Jeff Zodiak in the musical Wake Up, which he co-wrote with Harold Faltermeyer (and which failed) in 2002 (all of those in Vienna, Austria). He has also appeared in numerous Austrian and German movies.
