    I haven't seen this show cause I live in Australia, but is anyone else that comes from Australia suprised that America COPIED a show that Australia made? Cause usually it's the other way around. We've taken The Biggest Loser, Big Brother, etc. and now we made something that they've taken.
    Sorry, this post is a bit random, but I was just suprised, cause most Australian shows are pretty bad...

    Well, they took it and made it horrible.
    I've seen a video on Youtube of the American one, and it's the same script as ours, yet, everything the guest says is blocked by the actor, defeating the ENTIRE purpose of the show. What's the point?

    Americans have a habit of taking brilliant shows from other countries and making their own second-rate version of it, like The Office.

    Ye sorry USA but Australi keeps it real. I mean in Australia its so funny and down to earth where the US does what they do with all TV and stuff it and make it stupid humour which is the audience laughs at but not many other people.

    Its ok for America to copy the show because we copy alot from you but we actually make it better. Jillian from the Biggest Loser quit the US version but remains at the Aussie one, I wonder why?

    I think that the Australian one is more funny, because form what I've seen on Youtube, the American one is mainly sitcome stars who are use to working with scripts and people telling them funny things to say.

    On the Australian version, our guests are radio stars, stand up comedians, hosts of quiz shows etc... People who don't work with scripts so they are use to making up things on the spot.

    My opinion.
