The Real Pod: When the dance floor closes, a firehouse door opens

The Real Pod assembles to dissect the week in reality television and real life, with special thanks to Nando’s.

The team is back to give it a good old Kiwi try across the seas this week, perhaps one of the biggest reality TV weeks of the year. Dancing With the Stars NZ had one explosive finale, complete with rugby balls and Julz Tocker doing a rambunctious jive, with Manu Vatuvei being crowned the winner of the glitter ball trophy.

There was also the premiere of The Block NZ: Firehouse, set just a stone’s throw away from our office in Kingsland. If the extremely rude sign and caricature millennials are anything to go by, it’s going to be a cracker of a season. We also ruminate on what it means to be mindful in the latest edition of Colin’s Cranny, and spend too long looking at Max Key’s bum. It’s The Real Pod, really sorry.
