The Goggleboxers are settling into their ninth season and making new discoveries on the way.
We all continue to learn new things, and for the Goggleboxers it’s no different. The third episode of the ninth season had a few lessons in store for our families, from geography to animals and sport. Here are the main takeaways.
On the prowl
At the Silbery's, Emmie asks the question most great-grandmothers don't. "What's a cougar?" Over at Adam and Symon's, they solve her question as Adam explains, "You're always on the hunt for the young fellas." Back at the Silbery's, Emmie is filled with clarity. "Sounds like me."
On the news, Pauline Hanson's colourful past is flaring up as the presenter reports on allegations based in Rooty Hill RSL in 1998. Hearing of this, the Goggleboxers appear shocked, especially Kate Dalton. "Who would call it the Rooty Hill RSL?" Noticing his wife's horrified reaction to the apparent immaturity in naming the RSL, Matt Dalton steps in. "It's a suburb of Sydney."
It's just geography
A travel show is showcasing Taiwan, and for many of the Goggleboxers its exact location and entity appears a mystery. "Is Taiwan China? Or is it China like Hong Kong's China?" Symon asks. Anastasia is equally, if not more baffled. "I thought Taiwan was in Thailand." But Sarah-Marie has the answer. Supporting her husband's statement of Taiwan being like its own country, she continues, "Like Tasmania and Australia." Mm, not really. Matty and Jad let her in on the important information, with Matty finally saying, "Are you joking? What did I marry?"
Having a goat time
Next up in the exercise world is Goat Yoga, where baby goats jump on one's back whilst performing the relaxing activity. Tim sums it up perfectly. "What's with the goats?" Kieth also has something to say, who cops an unimpressed side-eye from wife, Lee. "You're kidding, aren't ya?" Get it? Keith thought it was funny, anyway.
The actual honey badger, the non-human one, is being shown on a documentary but Kate Dalton says the only one she knows is "that Bachelor." However, the presenter says that this honey badger too is known for causing chaos in the house. The documentary shows the animal breaking in, opening the fridge and eating bacon while lying down on its back in the kitchen floor. "My husband does the same thing." says Sarah-Marie. Talking of the animal's skills, Mick draws his own comparisons between the two honey badgers. "He's giving these guys a bad name!"
