‘Australia’s Next Top Model’ Finale Fail (VIDEO)
The Australia’s Next Top Model finale is setting the precedent for what’s likely the biggest reality show slip-up ever, as the wrong contestant was dubbed the winner, only to have her title taken away seconds later.
ANTM host Sarah Murdoch graciously awarded the show’s title to 19-year-old contestant Kelsey Martinovich. The only problem was, Kelsey’s competitor Amanda Ware was the real winner, causing Sarah to do her best to explain the disaster that just occurred live on television. “Oh my God, I don’t know what to say right now,” Sarah murmured as she tried to gain her footing.
“I’m feeling a bit sick about this. I’m so sorry about this. I don’t know what to say. This is a complete accident. It’s Amanda. I’m so sorry. It was fed to me wrong,” Sarah explained.
Thankfully for Sarah and ANTM producers, the two contestants — especially the shafted Kelsey — both handled the situation extremely well. Kelsey was all smiles and quickly wrapped her arms around the new winner.
Live television, folks. You never know what can happen.
