"He’s always up for a challenge," she added. "From jumping on crocodiles to getting his little cocky bow tie on, you know he’s doing good. So, I hope dad would love Chandler. We all love him."

Bindi was joined by her mom, Terri Irwin, and brother Robert Irwin, at the event, and her mother concurred that the famed Crocodile Hunter would have definitely approved -- after she put him through his paces.

"I think your dad would have tested him morning, noon and night, and then approve because your dad was kind of like that," Terri said, laughing.

"Dad always used to say, ‘If you’re gonna date a guy, he has to cross the croc pond first,'" Bindi recalled. "And thankfully, Chandler's a wakeboarder. So you know what? Wakeboarding across the pond, I’m sure he would have passed the test."

According to Terri, the new show will also be an avenue for them to pay tribute to her late husband's memory.

"Everything we do is to honor what Steve started, so I can’t imagine in some way he wouldn’t be part of this [show]," she said. "I mean, already we’ve been promoting this upcoming show with little grabs of things Steve had said in the past, because he’s definitely on our minds every single day, and I think that’s wonderful. I think it’s great to celebrate people that you loved and keep the beat going on."
