it's comforting to know that not all English-speaking moronic idiots are from the US.

I've heard about this programme. Didn't realise they'd found someone stupid enough to go through with it :lol:

Sky have been making a few of these bizarre programmes of late. There was one called "There's something about Miriam", in which a bunch of guys are encouraged to get to know a beautiful woman, we see them fondling and kissing each other and then "Miriam" is revealed to be a pre-op transexual.

Oh, the hilarity :roll:

Makes evo69's last post all the funnier....

I don't admire his math. It is possible neither red nor black will win.
A man has been charged after allegedly punching a 73-year-old woman in the face, breaking her nose and stabbing her in the arm with a corkscrew before hitting a second woman with a bottle at a wedding reception in the Whitsunday Islands.

he won! Lucky bastard he is.

Walked away with $270,600 I was kinda hoping he lost to break his gambling addiction but I also feel happy for him as well.

It wouldn't have made the slightest bit of difference anyway -- this was obviously a cynical stunt to make money, not lose it. He would have been assured of a large pile of money from one of the tabloid newspapers for his "story". The fact he won is immaterial really.

I fully agree jase.

Even though he was not paid by the sponsor, there is a film crew from another company filming him.
They will follow him around for about a month.
You can bet your bottom dollar (pun initially not intended) that he will receive a large sum of money for that...
