Tempted Scott leaves Nine?

Following on from news that Temptation model Scott McGregor will host new motoring show Blood Sweat and Gears on Fox8, it appears he may have left the Nine camp entirely.

McGregor admitted he made it known to Nine that he was keen to sink his teeth into something a bit more challenging.

“They told me that they didn’t want to just throw me into the deep end,” he told news.com.au

“There were a couple of offers, to do things like those late-night game shows. But it wasn’t really me.”

But he admitted he didn’t rush out to tell his Nine bosses. “I didn’t say anything about it. The first anyone has mentioned it was the Christmas party and my (Nine) bosses were really happy for me, which was a relief. Maybe they realised they could have thrown me in the deep end after all.”

In his new venture, seven finalists will compete in a series of challenges that will determine Australia’s best car driver over eight weeks. The grand final is played out in front of a crowd of 50,000 car lovers at the annual Spring Nationals in Melbourne.

Blood, Sweat and Gears premieres January 18 on FOX8.

  1. will he be topless in the new Fox 8 show !! If he is, I will be calling and arranging for it to be installed…

    Besides be hot to look at, he is also a really nice guy and very very professional.

    Just goes to show that Networks, and not just Nine, but all networks, don’t want to nurture talent unless they are ex football players or have been on big brother.

    Just look at the swag of new shows this year and how many of them are being hosted by existing Network people!

  2. Yes I looked very closely at that but the headline of the original article “Scott Gives Away Temptation” is pretty clear. If he was still with Nine I doubt some of the quotes would have been printed.

  3. That’s a big loss for Nine … he would attrack a lot of viewers regardless of what show he is on … if there was a chance of him being half dressed etc …
    Regardless of him “wanting to be taken seriously” … when you look that hot you should make the absolute most of it for as long as you can … one day, Scott, it will be gone!
    A motoring show is a complete waste of a very hot guy!
    Jack!

  4. “In his new venture, seven finalists will compete in a series of challenges that will determine Australia’s best car driver over eight weeks. The grand final is played out in front of a crowd of 50,000 car lovers at the annual Spring Nationals in Melbourne.”

    He considers this a “deep end”?????

    No loss to Nine….
