* HappilyMarried: To one Jules Sebastian nee Egan, a stylist. Though Jules was seen as something of a YokoOhNo when they got (back) together in early 2004, fans eventually warmed to their relationship enough that the vast majority wished them nothing but goodwill when they married in 2008. They have two young sons, Hudson "Huddie" James and Archer "Archie" Jones. It also helps that in their public life, Guy and Jules are seen as something of an inseperable unit - they are the founders (and faces) of their own charity (The Sebastian Foundation), plus they make many appearances at Christmas-related events around Australia such as Carols in the City.
* HiddenDepths / GenreSavvy: Called the winner for 2011 X Factor in a Lil Rocker called Reece Mastin, he's been quite successful, gaining fans day to day. Guy also showed incredible musical picking talent in going with Samantha Jade for his team in 2012, who did go from strength to strength. However, Guy only revealed her true self towards the end of the game, making the other judges "nervous" and she eventually won the show. Apart from being a multi-instrumentalist who plays guitar, drums, piano and synths, he also a talented photographer, and has held public exhibitions for his works.

* MentorArchetype: Well, between coaching duties on ''It Takes Two'', ''X Factor'', ''Don't Stop the Music'' and now ''The Voice'', it seems Guy is more than happy using his skills and industry insight to help others reach their musical and music industry goals.

* TheRival: Music/MissyHiggins called him out on being a "manufactured" artist because he won a reality show, leading to a bit of tension between the two for a while. His more famous rivalry with Shannon Noll barely qualifies, as the two are good friends, and any rivalry they may have is PlayedForLaughs.

** ''Conscious'', retaining only one song from ''Pt 1'' ("Set in Stone"), was a funk, soul and synth-based album that mixed both adult and family-friendly fare (for example, "High on Me" is great for school discos, but "Drink Driving", a hazy song comparing sex to drink driving? Not so much).



* PrecisionFStrike: "Small Talk", an already-racy IntercourseWithYou - centred track on the ''Pt. 1'' EP, contains a single utterance of the word "shit". However, since Guy has basically built his entire image around being family-friendly, something that would normally be a non-issue for fans of other artists caused a near-heart attack among his fanbase. It should also be noted this is the first time Guy has earned any of his songs an "Explicit" label in his thirteen-year career.
