Down under, they do things different then we do things here. You know, “shrimp on the barbie,” Vegemite Sandwiches, and Kangaroos that can literally kick your behind! Well so too America’s Next Top Model Australia. When they announce the winner of their show, they do it live, or at least, they used to. We here at the Yak are unsure whether they will be doing it live in the future.
On the final episode of ANTM, host Sarah Murdoch announced incorrectly that Kelsey Martinovich had won cycle 6. In the video below, not only will you see the hosts mouth drop open as she hears the news through her headpiece, but you will also see the winning picture pop up behind the trio with the picture of the real winner, Amanda Ware.
Amanda was in the process of making her thank you’s to everyone when the host interupted her saying “Oh my God, I don’t know what to say right now. I’m feeling a bit sick about this. I’m so sorry about this. I don’t know what to say. This is a complete accident. It’s Amanda. I’m so sorry, it was fed to me wrong.”
Kelsey took it really well, giving her congrats to Amanda, and telling the host, and Amanda, that it’s ok.
ANTM Australia’s Production has yet to comment on the fiasco, but they can always just blame it on the beer. Will ANTM do it live next year? Will America’s ANTM ever risk doing it live?
Oh and let me just add that I hope that whole “Shrimp on the Barbie” thing catches on in America, because yum. They can keep the Vegemite and the mean kangaroos.
