Gogglebox: Your questions answered

You asked and the Goggleboxers answered. Find out everything you've ever wondered from how they got on the show, to whether they get recognised on the street.

We spend one night each week with the Goggleboxers and while we may feel like we know them inside and out, we still have so many questions for our beloved TV watchers. Here are a few of the top questions from fans:

What's Wayne's favourite cocktail?

"I’m not a big cocktail drinker, I prefer a Sauvignon Blanc. Tom is the big cocktail drinker, which makes me the bartender!" Wayne says. 

How many hours of TV do the cast watch for filming each week?

It varies from week to week depending on what’s on TV.

Are Adam and Symon often recognised on the street? If so, how do they handle it?

"We are noticed but it’s usually under the following circumstances:
1. We’re together
2. We’re at a big event (football, concert etc.)
3. People have a few beers under their belt
Otherwise people think we went to school with their kids or work at their local supermarket," Adam and Symon say. 

Patrick, what’s your favourite moment of being on the show?

"My favourite moments on the show are always responding to the kids' innocent remarks with my cheeky one-liners. I say them so quickly that Tracey has no time to process and is always left speechless," Patrick laughs.

What’s the selection process of being on the show?

The selection process is different for all households. The majority were found on the streets by casting agents. For example, Wayne & Tom were at a musical festival, Lee & Keith were at a café, and Adam and Symon were at a pub when a casting agent approached them to be part of the show.

Mick and Di, what made you want to be on Gogglebox?

"We didn’t apply to be on the show, so it wasn’t really a case of us wanting to be on it, more that we kind of fell into it. We were at an art gallery opening and we were approached by a casting agent who was out and about looking for people. We are art dealers, so thought, why not? We were hopeful it might make people aware of Indigenous Art," Mick and Di say. 

Gogglebox continues on Lifestyle, Wednesdays at 7.30pm. Or watch it your way Foxtel GO.
