Celebrity Splash Contestant Koby Abberton Hated Being On The Show

Don’t expect to see Koby Abberton on a reality TV show anytime soon as he said he hated his time on Celebrity Splash.

Celebrity Splash bombed in the ratings but Koby was one of the contestants that could actually dive.

The Daily Telegraph writes:

Abberton, the big wave surfer took to Instagram today to tell his 23K followers that he regrets appearing on the reality show.

“I really f***ing hated this show,” he said, underneath a promotional picture of himself and Demi Harman.

“I look back on it and cringe. Made some good friends actually great friends but that was about it.

“I remember the director asked me to do something which I did and I was doing it I thought to myself, WOW that was a real low point in my life..”

It must has been bad as the Maroubra lad who has also had dysfunctional childhood,  been declared bankrupt and spent a few days behind bars in the USA. Maybe if it had rated better he might have enjoyed is time on it more. The instagram rant has now been deleted.

He didn’t hate doing the show as much as we hated watching it, and we did it for free!

No surprise here. I watched a bit of the GF and I could definitely see it on his face that he just didn’t give a stuff about the show. Even when the judges were faffing on about his chances of winning the comp he just couldn’t seem to, at least, pretend to be happy.

i saw the instagram post before it was deleted. he actually did make mention of how happy he was with the money he was paid which was really tacky and disgraceful

Probably because the camera angles didn’t always cooperate with him to hide the hair thinning on his head, and the sound equipment couldn’t remove the squeakiness from his voice.
