The Voice – taking a punt
We are a nation of gamblers, it seems, but quite possibly also a wee bit on the gullible side. A number of sites have been offering the chance to put money on the likely winner of The Voice Australia. Unfortunately, as we are not yet into the “live” episodes, those contestants who went home last night have been out of the competition since the show was recorded. Mahalia Barnes, who was being touted as a favourite, ended her run with the first of the battles. One site is still offering odds on those being matched up in the battles airing tonight – again, there are those out there (contestants and audience members alike) who know the results already. BetStar’s site notes that betting on the show through them has been “suspended”.
