KIIS FM’s Kyle and Jackie O tricked Rob Mills into facing his biggest fear.
But that’s the last they’ll ever see the former Australian Idol star’s face, he revealed in an explosive interview Thursday.
‘They threw a tuna fish pie in my face, it was gross – and I refuse to do their show,’ he told Nova’s Chrissie, Sam and Browny.
‘I hate them’: Former Australian Idol star Rob Mills has told Nova FM he’ll NEVER do KIIS FM’s Kyle and Jackie O show again, claiming the hosts went too far with a prank
The 35-year-old was responding to a question regarding ‘the worst gig he’d ever done.’
Without hesitation, Rob revealed: ‘It was another radio show, I got asked to do something for Kyle and Jackie O, and I’ve not been on the show since.’
‘Because I hate them.’
Worst gig ever: He claimed the popular breakfast hosts threw a segment called ‘Scary-oke,’ which forced him to ‘Stand in an ice bucket (while) singing a song’
The source of his frustration was a game they made him play called ‘Scary-oke’ based on an American television show.
‘I had to stand in an ice bucket (while) singing a song, and then they threw a tuna fish pie in my face,’ he recounted, as shock swept across the studio.
‘They covered me in honey, then they covered me in feathers, and I was like: “what the hell!?”‘
Not the face! ‘I had to stand in an ice bucket (while) singing a song, and then they threw a tuna fish pie in my face,’ he recounted, as shock swept across the studio
He admitted that a producer then took him out the back for a shower and a towel, but it was too little, too late.
Interestingly, co-host Sam Pang disagreed with Chrissie Swan and Rob, who thought the action was inexcusable.
‘Conceptually that actually sounds quite funny,’ he said, conjuring imagery of a wet seafood pie hitting Paris Hilton’s one-time-fling in the face.
‘What the hell!?’ ‘They covered me in honey, then they covered me in feathers, and I was like: “what the hell!?”‘ he added (pictured on Australian Idol in 2003)
‘It’s not funny mate!’ Rob hit back, ‘someone has to do it!’
‘You didn’t have to do it, why did you have to do it?’ Sam replied, insisting he would have had the chance to opt out.
Rob denied the assertions, adding: ‘I don’t eat fish mate! And it was gross, and I refuse to do their show.’
