Ms Holt, a former competitive ballroom dancer and snowboarder, had been placed at 29th on the provisional list, but has shot up to 17.

It follows a vote on the draft list by party members.

Seventeenth could see Ms Holt, who has worked on The Crowd Goes Wild as a reporter and presenter for the past eight years, make Parliament if the Greens have a strong showing and lift their party vote by one or two per cent at the election.

She said that the elevation on the list was unexpected and is "intimidating, but exciting as well, and I think that when I hit the ground I'm going to learn quite quickly and I think that I can make a difference".

Auckland Mayoral candidate Chloe Swarbrick is also a big winner. She's gone from 13th to 9th.
