My worst fear

Posted by : Michael Lund

Australia's Next Top Model on Fox 8 has just terrified the pants of each of the remaining contestants.

Forced to face their worst fears the first broke down in a panic attack at the mention she should appear with Edward Scissor Hands, the second had a similar reaction to the mention of birds.

One confessed her worst fear was clowns. "They wouldn't have a clown here would they," she sort of asked. They would.

I'm not sure I see the value in making people breakdown on camera as they face their worst fears. This is not George Orwell's Room 101 after all. (Another TV program has done that I'm sure.)

This is supposed to be light entertainment and presenting people's phobias for so-called fun is not fun in my opinion.

So just in case I'm ever placed in a position of facing my worst fear. It's Guinness.

Hate the stuff, can't bear to be in a room with a pint of the black stuff. The thought of having to drink a pint or two makes me shake uncontrollably.
