Football Superstar Premiers Tonight On Fox8 at 7.30pm
Maybe Brian McFadden slagging of his former co-host of Football Superstar Amy Taylor may be a bonanza for the second series of this reality TV show. At the Astra’s apparently he implied Amy was not that bright by saying about his new c0-star Lee Furlong “At least she has a brain.” Quite surprising really considering I would not have thought Delta’s manpet would be a member of MENSA. As shown by once being married to that trainwreck Kerrie Katona who is his children’s primary caregiver.
The Fox 8 show is about finding Australia’s most talented young footballer. The winner receives a one-year scholarship with Melbourne Victory.
It would appear from the Fox 8 press release that they are going to condense or even skip the audition episodes and just go straight into the final 15. I presume this must have been where they lost a lot of viewers last year.
Melbourne Victory FC Head Coach Ernie Merrick heads up the judging panel this year and is joined by Melbourne Victory assistant coach Aaron Healy and FOOTBALL SUPERSTAR mentor Vitale Ferrante.
The top 15 contestants are:
New South Wales: Gilly Buckley, 20; Aaron Daly, 16; David McMurray, 19; Daniel Mitwali, 17 and Sebastian Petralito, 20.
Queensland: Jack Petrie, 20; Matthew Heath, 19; Chris Kozionas, 20.
Victoria: John Lazaridis, 20 and Steven Topalovic, 18.
Western Australia: Kynon Melling, 18 and Trent Wood, 19.
South Australia: Michael Marchi, 20 and Thomas Renzi, 19.
Canberra: Luke Pilkington, 18
The players are moved into a Melbourne mansion and are judged by Merrick and the panel on their on-field performance and off-field behaviour. So hopefully there will be be some off-field drama to keep the non – soccer viewers entertained.
Each week the boys will be put through their paces as they compete in a selection of physical and mental challenges and one will be eliminated until there is a final three and then Merrick will decide who will be the winner.
Football Superstar – Fox 8 – Wednesdays at 7.30pm.
