SAS Australia: Koby Abberton asks Mark Philippoussis how much money he’s earned

SAS Australia’s Koby Abberton leaves fans cringing as he bombards Mark Philippoussis with personal questions about his tennis career – including how much money he earned


SAS Australia viewers were left cringing on Monday night, after notorious Bra Boy Koby Abberton bombarded Mark Philippoussis with personal questions about his career.

During the episode, the 42-year-old surfer awkwardly asked the tennis legend how much he earned, why he quit the sport and if his sponsorship was his main source of income throughout his career.

‘Did you earn a lot, bruh?’ Koby brazenly said, with Home and Away star Dan Ewing reacting in shock.

‘That’s very awkward,’ Dan whispered, with Koby quickly adding: ‘How much? Well just on average I’m not saying like, whatever…’

‘If you did well at a tournament and you won that tournament, they’d give you big money to come back,’ Mark replied.

‘But payment wise, were they good?’ Koby continued, to which Mark reluctantly responded: ‘Yeah, they were big contracts…’

Relentless in his line of questioning, Koby continued: ‘Why did you stop? You kind of stopped all of a sudden,’ before quickly asking: ‘Who was your sponsor again?’

After Mark replied that it was the sports brand Fila, Koby added: ‘Is that where you made the majority of your cash from?’

Fans took to social media to comment on Koby’s never-ending line of questions, with one writing: ‘It is none of your business, Koby!’

‘Omg, why isn’t Mark saying to Koby “What, are you writing a f**king book about me?” Shut up!’ a second added, while a third wrote: ‘I think the biggest task is being in there with Koby.’

‘Koby’s a real conversationalist isn’t he,’ a fourth pointed out.

However, one fan agreed that Koby’s line of questioning was perhaps more intense and entertaining than during an interrogation, writing: ‘At least Koby’s questions were more direct, than some that are asked during question time.’
