|Show||Fitzy & Wippa|
Wippa is the son of John and Christine Wipfli. He has two sisters: Louise and Kate. 
Wippa completed building management certificate at TAFE and was part of a freelance building crew, which gave him the freedom to do some casual work in entertainment.
Wippa married Lisa Robertson in 2013. They have three children named Theodore, Jack and Francesca.
In 2009, Wippa joined Nova FM's drive show Ryan, Monty and Wippa. During an on-air stunt seeing Wippa eat 12 'whopper' burgers over the course of a show, he gained the alternative nickname 'Whopper'. Ryan Shelton left at the end of 2010 to focus on television, and Monty moved to Nova Sydney's Merrick, Dools and Monty breakfast show.
In November 2010, it was announced that Wippa would be joining Ryan Fitzgerald to host Fitzy and Wippa in 2011. Fitzy and Wippa were nominated for the 2011 Australian Commercial Radio Awards in the best on-air team, Metro FM category.
Wippa appeared as a celebrity contestant on the Nine Network's quiz show Millionaire Hot Seat in 2012 where he became the first contestant to go home without reaching the $1000 question after he infamously answered "tropical bird" to the simple $500 question "What is a pecan?".
In 2016, Fitzy and Wippa were team captains on All Star Family Feud. Wippa's mother, sister and grandmother Norma were on his team. They also appeared in Shark Tank Australia to spruik Wippa's product the "Mup", a mint in the bottom of a coffee cup. Fitzy and Wippa also hosted the Nine Network show 20 to 1 for one season.
