Osher Günsberg, daddy, Bachie host, writer, appeared on Network Ten‘s Have You Been Paying Attention? to ask some Bachelorette-themed questions of the panel.
But of course, how could the group of professional comedians resist asking the man deeply invested in finding love (!!!) what he thought of that Bachelor finale: where Nick Cummins dropped his final two, Brittany Hockley and Sophie Tieman, when they were having such a nice holiday in New Caledonia.
Anyway, Tom Gleisner asked Günsberg for his thoughts on the season’s controversial ending, to which he quipped: “You can see why he made such an excellent Wallaby: charging towards the try line, and right at the final moment, sidestepped.”
Very funny, Osh, but what about Jane Kennedy‘s question about whether or not he was shocked by Cummins’ ultimate decision?
“I was. People don’t realise the glamour of television: I was hiding behind a pool filter in a resort with a pair of headphones on watching a small monitor going [mouths] ‘What the fuck?’ like the rest of Australia.”
He also said it was part of his role to keep the secret of the winner from the girls – he can pick the winner based off who arrives first. “Usually, as we know, the first person to get out of the car is the one that’s going home, so I know. And that’s the best acting I can possibly do there.”
When asked by Sam Pang he said he didn’t think Badge should have chosen either Hockley or Tieman for the sake of it.
“No, I don’t actually, because it takes a man to say ‘I can’t give you back the feelings that you’re giving me, and I don’t want to get into a relationship with someone like that.’”
Last night the show also announced that the Have You Been Paying Attention? format has been picked up by CBS in the United States.
