This was filmed just before the Melbourne Commonwealth Games in 2006. They film 5 episodes a day, and film two days a fortnight. This episode was the last to be filmed before they took a break for the Games. It meant I had about a 4-5 week wait to film the second episode.
The first night's prize was a fancy dress, with fittings and accomodation in Sydney "valued" at $10,000. Trin was very pregnant with Anzac at the time, and we never go anywhere fancy enough to wear a dress worth thousands of dollars, so I didn't take the prize.
Anyway, came back for the second 'night' and in the last 'Fame Game' before the Mad Minute, I was 'burgled' - $5 off my score and onto my opponent's score, so a $10 difference. At the end of the Mad Minute I had been beaten by $5... and I am still filthy about it!
But, hey, I won a night, which was beyond my wildest expectations, I just wanted to a) get on, and b) answer one question correctly, so, I can't really complain. And I have a Temptation pen to show for it!
