The Real Pod: Trouble in MAFSNZ paradise and the truth about Nessie


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

With Duncan enjoying a MAFS-style beach holiday in Bali, Alex and Jane are left to cover another crazy week in reality television. Shannon Ryan has gone full beast-mode in Celebrity Treasure Island, Married At First Sight NZ revealed that two of the contestants have already slept together and TVNZ is about to dish up a brand new cooking competition that nobody asked for.

There’s also a boatload of Real News, including the truth about the Loch Ness monster, some extremely rude embroidery and an exciting eye witness account of the Briscoes Lady. It’s The Real Pod, for real this time.
