One contestant on Taken Out seemed just that little bit more familiar than the others…
Kalia, who was the lucky girl on Tuesday night to win a date with the single guy, will be remembered by viewers who saw the first episode of Power of Ten on Channel Nine earlier this year.
Of course in television there’s always a queue of ready-made contestants happy to move from show to show. Last year we even had one contestant on 1 vs 100 appearing on the same night as their appearance on The Rich List. That was enough to short circuit any remote control. At the time media even called him a “game show junkie.”
When Kalia appeared on the Power of Ten she told Steve Jacobs she was a promo model and gave three reasons why she would succeed: 1. “I love going around and talking to completely random people all the time”, 2. “I’ve been in hospital with a broken ankle and spent 24 hours there talking and listening to different people”, and 3. “As a promo model, I’m constantly associating with different people all the time.”
To her credit she was a winner on the night, but only with $100 bucks.
On Wednesday night on Taken Out it seemed the date didn’t go quite so well, either. For what it’s worth, the show has had more than its share of trouble finding male contestants. If that guy who appeared on 1 vs 100 wants to make it a hat trick, he could always try TEN next?
