Scherri-Lee Biggs had a wild animal encounter on the Today show on Friday.

With the help of a professional, she held a pole with a chicken carcass dangling off the end as Elvis lurked in the lake below.

She nervously waited for the croc to approach, before it snapped at the dead animal and tore it away after a few attempts.

Scherri-Lee looked alarmed by the confronting scene but managed to keep her cool.

‘Gosh, he’s quick as well. You wouldn’t want to be in there! Look at him go. What a cool experience,’ she said.

This isn’t Scherri-Lee’s first animal encounter while filling in for Today show weatherman Tim Davies over the Christmas holidays.

She memorably fed a caged lion at Sydney Zoo on December 21.

After tossing the animal a piece of meat, it leapt up on the steel fence towards her.

‘Oh my god!’ Scherri-Lee yelled as she jumped back.

‘I think that is because I called him an elephant… He is very angry,’ she added.

Scherri-Lee was one of the breakout stars of Celebrity Apprentice’s most recent season.

But the model and TV presenter was secretly struggling with a health condition while filming the show.

She revealed in a column for 9Honey she has psoriasis and dermatitis and is also allergic to makeup.

‘There were mornings I’d wake up and my skin was so inflamed it looked like I had been punched in the eye, knowing that when I get into work, a thick layer of makeup would have to be applied to my red raw skin,’ she said.

‘Stress doesn’t help either. Enter: reality TV show involving a boardroom and billionaire boss. At one point filming Celebrity Apprentice, the skin under my eye had completely split open,’ she added.

Scherri-Lee shot to fame when she won Miss Universe Australia in 2011 – the year after Jesinta Franklin took the crown.

She went on to represent her country in the Miss Universe 2011 pageant, placing in the top 10.
