A grown man from the Kyle and Jackie O show has scored his ten seconds of fame when he told former captain Steve Smith his actions really aren’t that bad because they don’t compare to the other cheating scandal that happened between Davina and Dean on Married at First Sight. Noice.
Never a bad moment for an opportune publicity stunt.
The other journos and press team quickly hushed the man and the interview carried on but those few seconds were enough to trigger Twitter.
You can watch the snippet below.
Ok all who asked me, here’s a video of that tool from the Kyle and Jackie O show. It was a dumb stunt at the expense of a shattered man pic.twitter.com/HBvDsKSw7F— Natasha Robinson (@NC_Robinson) March 29, 2018
This was Smith’s first meeting with the Australian press since the interview in Cape Town last Saturday, and it was an emotional one as he apologised to his fans, his family, the sport, and to the Australian public. After making his apology, the questions began and the man, who is apparently known as Intern Pete (Pete Deppelerhas) made sure to mention he was from the Kyle and Jackie O show before going on his MAFS tangent. Again, noice.
You may remember Intern Pete from the Logies – the one who dressed up and paraded around as the gold statue.
This isn’t Intern Pete’s first time being in hot water. Just last year Pete had to apologise on air for completely making a story up about Neighbours’ actor Stefan Dennis (Paul Robinson) being publicly intoxicated, falling into a gutter and throwing up. Channel 10 immediately denied the claims and Pete admitted he didn’t see Stefan fall, instead he “tripped a little bit” and that he didn’t “spew, I saw him cough” .
No one’s really sure what Intern Pete was genuinely trying to achieve from the stunt but holy shitsnacks are people damn fumin’ at him.
I mean, some people got a laugh out of it but the majority agreed it was a cheap move.
So, as always enjoy the wrath of Twitter.
What an absolute disgrace!! #InternPete hope you were forcefully removed from Sydney airport, similar to the Logies a few years ago. Give it up, you and that radio show are nothing but a shit stain to Australia #BoycottKiisFM— K1drandom (@k1drandom) March 29, 2018

Just out of interest, what was the Kyle and Jackie O producer expecting to get out of that? A hilarious comeback from a tearful Steve Smith? FM Radio can be idiot central sometimes.— Ben Lewis (@benlewismedia) March 29, 2018
What about the goose from Kyle and Jackie O. Making fun of a broken man whose career is in tatters, very disrespectful.— Chris Lawrence (@chrislawrence04) March 29, 2018
At the very least, Smith had the right to tell his side without being belittled. I'm talking to you, idiot from Kyle and Jackie O— waterbaby134 (@waterbaby_134) March 29, 2018
Everyone looking at some place to put your anger after this whole ball tampering incident, may I recommend getting angry at that random Kyle and Jackie O fellow.— Brodie Cowburn (@brodiecowburn) March 29, 2018

Honestly, Kyle and Jackie O – what a stunt… what a stunt… and Intern Pete has balls… far out— Trevor Long (@trevorlong) March 29, 2018
The person from the @kyleandjackieo who made a statement during the Smith remarks – utterly ill-judged and awful.— Leigh Sales (@leighsales) March 29, 2018
