It began with Weatherman Sam dressed in slightly cool punkish clothes (including many large rings) taking a selfie with the rocker twins, before stepping aside and giving them a Maori Place Name Challenge.

The overall verdict of the challenge was that the “Waipu? Why Not!” joke is still going unnervingly strong.
