SOS Island Boot Camp Day 5: D-DAY

Friday 5th October 2013

Of the 16 people to do boot camp, only 8 will make it to SOS Island itself. Today’s the day we find out who made the cut. Those who get through will go and live on an island for two weeks with nothing but the clothes on their backs and their Samsung Galaxy S4 zooms and Samsung NXs. Those who fail to make the cut fly home tomorrow.

After miserably failing to make the cut for the top 50 of the Jauntaroo “Chief World Explorer” gig earlier this week, I was understandably nervous.

I was in the top 100, and I made that great little Ghostbusters video an’ all!

And, well, how do I put this delicately…? I’VE BEEN TO EVERY COUNTRY FOR HEAVEN’S SAKE!!!!!

But, nope, they didn’t want me. Damn you Jauntaroo, damn you all to hell.

So, yeah, anything could happen – possibly for all the wrong reasons.

The tension built throughout the day, and was not improved by today’s pre-shoot rehearsal which involved us all being “eliminated” and learning how to walk off the set graciously and without muttering swear words under our breaths.

And then, before I knew it, the show kicked off.

To cut a long story short…



Again, I can’t link to the full episode just yet, so here are some pics from the day.

This is what happened immediately afterwards:

And this is my reaction to the news:

Right, that’s it. I’m off to have a drink with Les. See you Monday 🙂
