A classified ad declaring “Bogans Wanted For New TV Show” is part of a search for Australia’s biggest bogan by Paul Fenech.
Fenech, who is behind Pizza and Swift and Shift Couriers on SBS, is seeking applicants with “tattoos, missing teeth and true blue in King Gees” to win big cash prizes.
“I want to put flannelette on plasma. We want mullets, tattoos, AVOs and defactos. It will be like Bogan Idol,”he told news.com.au.
He said his new show for early next year would be something like a cross between “Cops, Dog The Bounty Hunter, Steve Irwin and Australia’s Funniest Home Videos.”
Fenech laughed he thought the show might take a State of Origin type format in running the “bogan Olympics” but would not divulge more for fear that Channel 9 might do a “hokey” rip-off, probably hosted by Eddie McGuire.
Prizes would beyond the “wildest Centrelink cheques” for the show’s winners and may include a makeover to turn a bogan into something more socially acceptable.
