Next week Nine moves The Farmer Wants a Wife to 7:30pm Mondays and screens US reality show Same Name in which a celebrity switches lives (temporarily!) with a person bearing the same name.
In the first episode David Hasselhoff trades places with an electrical technician and landscaper in Texas, also known as David Hasselhoff. Poor bloke.
I haven’t figured out what the purpose of it all is yet. Because a producer thought it was clever? So the celeb can say, “Yeah my life is way better than yours?”
Also featured in the series are Kathy Griffin, Mike Tyson and Miami Dolphins player Reggie Bush. Given Nine skipped some episodes of the US Who Do You Think You Are? what is the likelihood that the Reggie Bush episode is actually going to air?
This will be the third different show in the 7:30pm Wednesday timeslot in as many weeks.
