There’s A Celebrity Holey Moley Ep Coming & Not One Of These ‘Celebs’ Is New To Reality TV

Ali Oetjen, Angela Clancy and Eden Dally for Celebrity Holey Moley

Because people apparently love fkn TV putt putt/obstacle courses, Channel Seven will be airing a Celebrity Holey Moley special on Sunday February 28, and you’ll never guess which B-grade stars have signed on.

It’s a list largely of former sportspeople and reality TV contestants (sometimes both!), because, hey, we all agree ‘celebrity’ is a meaningless word at this point.

We know you wanna hear about the reality TV mainstays first. There are literally three people who appear to have come straight from SAS Australia’s Snowy Mountains set: ex-Bachelorette Ali Oetjen, Love Island‘s Eden Dally and model and sports commentator Erin Holland. They’re joined by Big Brother fave Angela Clancy.

Then there’s the sportspeople who have also all given reality TV a crack before. There’s ex-rugby player Mat Rogers of Dancing With The Stars and two seasons of Australian Survivor who loves to post golf videos on the ‘Gram; and former AFL player Barry Hall, who was the runner-up on the first season of I’m A Celebrity in 2015, where he also met his future wife, Hi-5’s Lauren Brant.

And then there’s the folk king himself, the first Australian to win Gold at the Winter Olympics in what some may perceive as a fluke, Steven Bradbury. He also took a crack at Australian Survivor in 2019, in between Mat’s two seasons.

And last, there’s Aussie TV veteran, Denise Drysdale, whose only turn on reality TV per se was on the shortlived diving competition Celebrity Splash!

They all love to get involved, huh?

The Celebrity Holey Moley special, played over three rounds, is expected to include the moment when Denise Drysdale was seriously injured on the course during filming in October. She reportedly fell over and suffered a shoulder injury which landed her in hospital.

It’s not the only injury on the popular show, with reports that one contestant broke 12 ribs while participating. Another two contestants broke their ankles.

The network also announced a pint-sized version of the sports (?) show this week, with kids competing for $10K on Holey Moley Junior on Monday March 1.

All this Holey Moley news comes following the season finale last night, where Mark Duncan took home $100,000 as the inaugural winner of the show. Good job.

Two more episodes of chaotic good, what a gift.
