Gladstone man will compete in Kick or Grab on NRL footy show
TO WIN the chance to kick for $10,000, Josh Mitchell said on national television that he went to bed with Paul Vautin.
Mr Mitchell had to answer a call from Channel Nine's 'NRL Footy Show', on Thursday night, within five rings and answer with "I go to bed with the Fat" to be invited down to the show this week.
It was an early birthday present for Mr Mitchell who turned 25 on Friday.
After watching the show for 15 years and rarely missing an episode, he wasn't going to miss his opportunity.
"I'm pretty excited about going down there and going on the show," she said.
He will be competing in the 'Kick or Grab' competition, where he has to answer three questions about last week's show to win prizes.
Mr Mitchell expected to at least be questioned about the infamous arm wrestle between Ben Ross and Wendell Sailor.
"There will be something about how (Ben Ross) broke his arm for sure," he said.
"I will win prizes if I get the answers right and then I have the choice to keep the prizes or kick for $10,000."
The North Queensland Cowboys fan wasn't sure if he would gamble the prizes.
"About five years ago, when I used to play, I would have kicked it," he said.
"Now I have a bung knee so I don't know. I can get someone else to kick but I'd only get $1000."
He now has a nervous three day wait until he is on the show.
"I get to meet all of the guys on the show but I am looking forward to meeting Fatty Vautin the most," he said.
"He is funny and he is what made the footy show what it is," he said.
"He is the one who started it and I have always liked him."
Mr Mitchell hadn't put much thought into what he was going to wear, but it wasn't a big problem for him.
"I'll probably just wear a Cowboys jersey," he said.
"I haven't even thought about it. I'm pretty nervous about what I'm going to say at the moment."
