The Real Pod assembles to dissect the week in New Zealand pop culture and real life, with special thanks to Nando’s.
The reality TV gods are smiling down on us this week, as The Block NZ delivers the exceptional talent competition and The Bachelor Australia gets extremely raunchy. Duncan doesn’t know how to pronounce Agni, Jane is mad about a stolen sock idea, and Alex has a mystery lump in her arm. Is Cass getting a crueller edit than she deserves? Where is Vanessa Sunshine’s joy? And where has the lady who jumped in the pool gone?
Beyond that, we review some expired goldfish crackers, recap an extreme chicken-eating event and welcome our new celebrity endorsement* from Mike McRoberts. It’s The Real Pod and it’s about as surreal as it gets.
