“What with Bear Grylls, Turtle Man, and Donald Trump rocking it in the reality TV world, I thought it was time,” said Australian-freaking-icon Alby Mangles.
With the choke hazard that was dusting off the VHS camera complete, what plan does Alby have?
“I’m going to New Zealand,” said Mr Mangles.
It will be lands different to the Sahara dessert and the rocky wherever that he has been before.
“There’ll be muddy volcanic spots for me and the backpackers to get into, and steaming volcanic pools for me and the backpackers to swim in, and some huts, or tents, or just the one tent, it’s hard to carry baggage everywhere,” said Mr Mangles.
While hopefully he wont take a trusty dog with him, or at least he does and this time the thing lives, there’s more plans on the screenshot board.
“I’m mostly looking forward to taking a bunch of backpackers into the bush and filming them approaching deadly animals without warning.”
Along with introducing Australians to foreign lands, unusual foods, and skimpy bikinis, Mangles return to the big screen means one other thing.
“I’ll be topless as much as possible,” said Mr Mangles. “I know that’s why the first three series worked.”
Everyone has to agree with that.
