Australia is legit miles apart from most earthly civilisation, which can make it difficult (and expensive) to get out there and beyond the down-under bubble. We get that. That’s why PEDESTRIAN.TV snagged all-round Aussie ledge Shannon Noll to host our Eurotrip Pop Culture Challenge, presented by CONTIKI, to get two of y’all over to Europe. The challenges might’ve been weird AF, but it’s an all-expenses-paid trip, so that’s a fair trade-off, no?
Just days out from frothing over his #Nollsy4Eurovision petition, the Condobolin-native agreed to host one of the weirdest fkn Euro-themed pop culture challenges you’ll ever see in yo’ life, all to help one lucky couple win an all-expenses-paid trip to Europe.
Flaunting the double dems at Sydney‘s Portugal Community Club, the famed runner-up tested the skillz of three couples (buddies and baes) with five strange AF challenges based on countries from Spain to Germany – if you’re gonna go there, you’ve got to be prepared for those O/S cultural shocks y’know?
A bit more on the competing menaces:
MITCH & LOCKY: LOVING COUPLE
Mitch: An online creative mastermind who loves Biebs, dogs and his boyfie, Locky.
Locky: A non-Belieber with a borderline-psychotic obsession with Adele.
KELLY & JONO: LOVING COUPLE
Kelly: Potentially the only human in the world who doesn’t love Nutella.
Jono: Drum-playing, beer-keg deliverer who hates top knots.
CONRAD & ROMA: JUST MATES
Conrad: A surfer dude who doesn’t like Southern Cross tatts, even though Nollsy has one.
Roma: A customer service chick who would like the Kanye West hype to ~simmer down~.

Here’s what they had to do:
CHALLENGE #1: REAL HOUSEWIFE CARRYING (FINLAND)
Carry your partner in crime through an obstacle course: throw wine at other half tanty-style, dig for gold, dress all wifey-like and end up in rehab, obvi.
CHALLENGE #2: ALEX SKARSGARD SAUSAGE EATING CONTEST (SWEDEN)
Eat as many sausages as humanly possible in one minute. That’s it. Voms welcome.
CHALLENGE #3 “NUDE” FLAUNTING IN #MYCALVINS DRAWING (ITALY)
One teammate flaunts their #Calvins and all other remaining goods while the other draws them in a life drawing sesh. Most ~realistic~ wins.
CHALLENGE #4: LA TOM-OR-TINA (SPAIN)
The ultimate test for Tom Cruise and Tina Fey loverz’. If contestants attribute the wrong quote to the wrong celeb (hence, Tom or Tina?), they got sauced with a ketchup fountain from our lovely life-size salsa dancing emoji. OLÉ!!!!!!!
CHALLENGE #5: HEIDI KLUM DUNK-ER SHEON (GERMANY)
One teammate dunks the other into fah-reezing water ASAP by throwing balls at a target, The wet one natch hops into Victoria’s Secret underwear a la Heidi Klum to warm back up and complete the rest of the challenge.
Props to these six friggin’ legends for giving every challenge a solid crack.
If all this gives you the travel itch, you can head to Contiki‘s website HERE to change your current sitch from FML to OMG, because we don’t all have guts, literally and metaphorically, of the six genuinely top humans in the video above.
Being the generous folk they are, Contiki awarded a runner-up holiday to Mitch and Locky for being such epic competitors and all-round good sports.
